Airborne 08.31.15: CAP 'Total Force' Upgrade, NBAA v User Fees, Airshow Loss

Also: Buzz Aldrin Space Institute, Drone Spots Shark, Texting Accident, SECAF At BellHeli, B4UFLY App, NTSB MidAir Prelim, ERAU Drones

Last week ANN’s Jim Campbell was fortunate to be at the CAP National Conference when it was announced that General Mark A. Welsh announced the official recognition of the Civil Air Patrol as the fourth member of the Air Force Total Force team. The official recognition reflects CAP’s key and continuing contributions to the Air Force mission working with the Active, Guard and Reserve components to provide the Air Force with a full spectrum of distinct and complementary capabilities. The NBAA is calling on its members to contact members of Congress during this recess with a message that they should oppose any FAA reauthorization bill that calls for privatized air traffic control funded by user fees.

Airborne 09.01.15: RV-12 Milestone, MH370 Wreckage... NOT?, Sling 2 To Hawaii

Also: JetFuelX, Aero-Calendar, CEO Lends Corporate Jet, Citation Latitude Delivers, Trans States Pilots, Airbus Heli’s H175, Pink King Air

Van’s Aircraft tells us that On August 27, their shipping department had several orders to fill, and by the end of the day, they’d rolled the 937th RV-12 kit empennage package onto the shipping dock. While the number 937 seems like an odd number to celebrate, Van’s says that combined with the S-LSA “fly-away” RV-12s the company has constructed, the total number of RV-12 empennage kits produced and sold now totals one thousand. Despite the fact that Malaysian authorities have said with certainty that the airplane part found on Reunion Island is from the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777, which went missing March 8, 2014, French authorities are not ready to say with certainty that they agree.
