Airborne 09.17.14: Boeing/SpaceX Win CCtCap, Flying Docs Endorse, Jetpack Bucks

The Commercial Spaceflight Federation congratulates NASA and the winners of the Commercial Crew Transportation Capability, referred to as the “CCtCap,” contract awards announced yesterday. CCtCap is the latest round in NASA’s Commercial Crew Program that will develop domestic space transportation capabilities for NASA astronauts. We recently reported that 11 U.S. Senators had submitted a letter to the DOT urging action on revised 3rd class medical requirements, and now the Flying Physicians Association, known as the FPA, has added their letter to the same stack. This time it's not a technology breakthrough, but a financial one that may make the Jetpack a little closer to reality. New Zealand-based Martin Aircraft Company Limited ... which is developing what it calls the world’s first practical and commercial flying Jetpa

Airborne 09.15.14: ForeFlight's iOS8 Caution, Boeing v Al Jazeera, Expedition 40

Also: EAA On NTSB Drug Study, Remember 'Ripcord?', FAA Loosens Up In SAR UAV Use, Curiosity Arrives At Martian Mount, IAF Worries About Social Media

With much fanfare, Apple rolled out its new iOS 8 operating system last week, as well as new devices which will be available soon. However, ForeFlight is asking it subscribers to wait a little while before hitting the "Update" button. The proposed airing of a television program on Al Jazeera English focused on the development and production of the Boeing Dreamliner has led Boeing to issue a preemptive response. Boeing’s statement says in part, "Promotional trailer and published media reviews suggest that what has been produced [by Al Jazeera English] is as biased a production as we have seen in some time... Three crew members from the International Space Station returned to Earth last week after 169 days of science and technology research in space, including a record 82 hours of research in a s

Airborne 09.12.14: Alan Klapmeier's $10M Win, OWW Progress, 3rd Class Update

Also: Zero-G Engine Repo, Collier Trophy, EAA Addresses FAA Hangar Use, CAF's Dallas Air Expo

While it comes as no surprise to those of us that have had to deal with Cirrus Aircraft's negative tactics and behaviors, a judge in Hennepin County, Minnesota last month dismissed post-trial motions filed by Cirrus Industries following a jury verdict that awarded $10 million to Alan Klapmeier last March. The actual judgment was posted this week by the court. During the week of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014, thousands of people had a hand in building EAA’s One Week Wonder Zenith CH 750 Cruzer. During the ensuing weeks a handful of pilots have completed the required 40 hours of Phase one flight testing, beginning with the first flight by Jeff Skiles the day after the convention. Eleven U.S. senators from both sides of the aisle, all co-sponsors of a bill to reform the third-class medical process, are asking the Department of Transportation and the Off
