Airborne 12.06.16: SpaceX Launching Soon!, 787 AD, DJI Inspire 2

Also: P-51C 'Tuskegee Airmen', Aero-Calendar, EASA Mandate, Master Instructor, 737 MAX Thrust Reverser, LaMia Airline, Flying Colours

SpaceX could return to flight by the middle of the month if the FAA approves its next launch, according to SpaceX customer Iridium Communications. The launch is scheduled on December 16 at 12:36 p.m. Pacific Standard Time from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, according to an Iridium news release. An Airworthiness Directive issued by the FAA last week requires repetitive cycling of either the airplane electrical power or the power to the three flight control modules. This AD was prompted by a report indicating that all three fly control modules might simultaneously reset if continuously powered on for 22 days on all Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. A reset of the flight control modules, if not corrected, could result in flight control surface

ANN Presents: Bob Hoover Memorial Celebration of Life (11.18.16 -- Special Edit)

Honoring A Great Man, A Great Pilot, A Great American -- and Above All Else… A Great Friend

Bob Hoover was, to virtually everyone in the aviation world, the “Pilot’s Pilot.” One of aviation’s most celebrated aviators, Hoover pioneered a legendary life as a fighter pilot, test pilot, airshow pilot and aviation figurehead. Whether escaping a German prisoner of war camp in WWII by stealing a German fighter, flying in support of Chuck Yeager’s record-breaking sound-barrier flights, testing dozens of leading edge airplanes (often for the first time) or flying flawlessly thorough hundreds of airshow performances; Hoover’s 94 years were packed with adventure, class, distinction, and a gentlemanly grace heretofore unmatched by any other flyer. This beloved aviator passed away, quietly and with dignity, October 25th. View The Special Edit of the Hoover Memorial Celebrati

The expression, “breaking news,” seems to be highly overused nowadays, but to hear that an autogyro has just received FAA type certification is truly - breaking news. Even better, this aircraft is eligible for operation by sport pilots. The original design of the Calidus dates back to 2009. Since then it has been certified in numerous countries around the world. The company claims cruise performance to be in the range of 95 to 110 miles per hour with a takeoff distance ranging from 30-300 feet. A Sacramento man who flew his DJI Mavic drone over the Winter Wonderland festival at California Exposition last month had his aircraft confiscated by the Sacramento Police.
