Only 2 years ago, Felix Baumgartner set a record for the highest parachute jump when he stepped out of his Red Bull sponsored gondola hanging beneath a gas filled balloon at 128,100 feet. This record was broken last week when a computer scientist named Alan Eustace parachuted from an altitude of 135,890 feet. During his descent, it’s reported that Eustace reached a speed of 822 miles per hour. The NBAA’s 2014 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition organizers are reporting that, by all indications, the show was a success for attendees and exhibitors alike. NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen said, in part, “This year’s show was an enormous success, filled with announcements and product introductions. The exhibit floor and aircraft displays had lots of activity and e

Airborne 10.24.14: AML's Innovations, NASA Preps For Mars, LightHawk Saves

Also: AW609 Pilots Honored, Airbus' VIP Cabin, FreeFlight's FTX-200, Quicksilver S-LSA Milestone

During our visit this week to NBAA 2014, Jim Campbell had a chance to talk with Mark Lange of Aviation Modification Leaders, also known as AML, and learn about a new technology that is almost beyond belief. They discussed a system that is designed to increase the situational awareness in the cockpit by identifying fatigue, the effects of hypoxia, and the side effect of sleep apnea. There are additional benefits of the system but these are the top 3 that have been identified as the short fuse to an accident. NASA has captured thermal images of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on its descent after it launched in September. It’s hoped data from these thermal images may provide critical engineering information for future missions to the surface of Mars. The non-profit conservation group known as, LightHawk, will beg

The FAA handed over certification papers for Embraer's Legacy 500 executive jet during a ceremony at the National Business Aviation Association Conference and Exhibition, in Orlando, Florida. This approval enables entry into service of the aircraft in the United States and in countries that require such certification. Syberjet is looking ahead to getting the SJ-30i into production. ANN’s editor in chief stopped by their booth at NBAA2014 and got an update from Mark Fairchild, General Manager and Director of Sales and Customer Service. Universal Avionics’ newest avionics suite called the…InSight Integrated Flight Deck was unveiled here at the NBAA 2014 Business Aviation Convention. The highlight of the system is the embedded next generation Synthetic Vision System with advanced mapping capabili
