ga and the ntsb’s most wanted list

Editor’s Letter When the National Transportation Safety Board in 2011 added “general aviation safety” to its Most Wanted list of transportation improvements, the aviation industry cheered. Associations issued press releases welcoming the NTSB’s decision to highlight GA safety as an important priority. To everybody involved, it seemed like the right thing to do. And it was. Fast forward six years and general aviation safety stubbornly remains on the Most Wanted list. The press releases, however, are nowhere to be found. Aviation groups appear to be growing weary of GA being singled out year after year, especially considering that some noteworthy safety gains have been achieved. The situation came to a head this past fall when NBC News aired a segment in the aftermath of a deadly midair collision between two small airplanes in…

JOE RYBICKI Next Step Congrats on your last paying flight, Dick [“The Splendid End,” Gear Up, February 2017]. I met you in Knoxville, Tennessee, years ago. You came over to say hi to two guys in a Beechjet. We tried to talk your wife into that jet you wanted. She wasn’t buying it from us either! Here’s a much easier sell for you: How about an old taildragger? Cheap, fun, basic stick-and-rudder bug smashing at its finest. Believe me, we jet drivers just think we know how to fly. STEVEN JOYCE BECOMING AN AIRLINE PILOT My son is following Sam’s career path quite closely [“Changing Course Along an Airline Career Path,” January 5, 2016]. Dreams of becoming an airline pilot are alive and well for our youth right now. Some luck and a lot of…

nikon keymission 360

We’ve all seen those cool flying videos captured with a camera installed on the wing. But most only show the pilot’s reactions to the outside world. Imagine if you could turn the camera view in any direction in flight and see what the pilot does. For just under $500, Nikon’s KeyMission 360 can spin that wing camera around 360 degrees. It offers ultra-slow-motion and time-lapsed photography, employing Hollywood-like effects, so sky warriors — or scuba divers down to 100 feet — can create 360-degree videos in stunning 4K HD detail. With both Bluetooth and Wi-Fialready standard, a pilot or diver needs only to bring along a smartphone to control the action. So experiment and explore, but you might want someone in the right seat of the airplane to manage the…

cirrus sf50 vision jet enters market

Aviation News and Notes It’s been more than a decade since Cirrus Aircraft announced its intentions to build a single-engine very light jet. Since the project was announced, there have been much hype and skepticism about whether the Duluth, Minnesota-based company, known for its technologically advanced piston SR20 and SR22 models, would be able to pull it off. But before the start of the year, Cirrus had the FAA type certificate for the SF50 Vision Jet in hand and delivered the first airplane to a loyal customer — Joe Whisenhunt — who owned 10 piston Cirrus airplanes before becoming a jet owner. The delivery took place at the Cirrus factory in Duluth only weeks before the grand opening of the Vision Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. While the Vision jet is powered by…

atlas winglets certified

Aviation News and Notes Tamarack recently got the green light from the FAA for a supplemental type certificate (STC) that allows its Active Technology Load Alleviation System (ATLAS) to be installed in Cessna Citation CJ, CJ1, CJ1+ and M2 airplanes. Tamarack is working on STCs for the CJ3 and plans to expand the portfolio to other OEMs. The ATLAS’s Tamarack Active Camber Surfaces (TACS) activate when the G-load is increased on the wing, such as during turbulence or maneuvers, to alleviate the additional load of the wing extensions. The system significantly improves climb performance, resulting in a fuel-burn reduction of 15 to 25 percent. Read more about the active winglets in the December 2016 issue of Flying. PART 23 REWRITE DONE The highly anticipated revised Part 23 certification standards are here. Many current regulatory barriers…
