SUN 'N FUN AND THE CONFEDERATE FRONT
SUN 'N FUN AND THE CONFEDERATE FRONTNo GA pilot has spent more time studying the weather than Richard Collins. And Richard’s meteorological research and observation didn’t happen in a classroom – unless you, as I do, know that 20,000 hours of cross-country flying in a GA airplane is nature’s very best classroom.

Richard is also a student of the Civil War and has visited most of the important battlefields. He has also located the markers that commemorate where many of his ancestors engaged the Yankees in what he and others sometimes call the “War of Northern Aggression.”

But the Intrinzic system also includes huge 14-inch-wide flat glass displays and, like the jets, it has the capability to manage a number of aircraft systems, not just avionics functions. Read more

EAA supports such an amendment, but we'd like to know what you think: Should these "permanent TFRs" be removed? Vote now!

Artificial Clouds to Shade 2012 World Cup in Qatar

Qatar University engineers have proposed using the shadow from artificial clouds for keeping soccer fans and players cool at the 2022 World Cup. Lightweight carbon materials will be used to build the helium-filled clouds at an estimated cost of $500,000 each, and four solar-powered engines will move each “cloud” to the correct location in the sky and keep them in place.

Blimps Used for Psy-Ops in Afghanistan Theater

Blimps, or aerostats, have been successful for cost-effective aerial surveillance to protect U.S. troops in Afghanistan. In an innovation combination of surveillance and psychology, the U.S. Army has proposed deploying additional lower-cost blimps under the Aerostat Deception Program. The program will give small Army units blimps to “deceive insurgents with the appearance of enhanced capabilities.”

Where Are You Flying This Weekend?
There are
23 fly-ins and events over the next two weekends in the EAA Events Calendar. Find one near you or add your event!

Q & A:   Recently I heard that the STC authorizing auto gas use in an aircraft now allows up to 10 percent ethanol fuel. Can you confirm or deny that statement?

Answer: There is absolutely no movement by the FAA to allow ethanol-blended autofuel/gasoline as an approved fuel that holders of an EAA or Petersen Aviation autofuel STC can use. The current position of the FAA remains the same as stated in FAA SAIB CE-07-06. EAA realizes that finding ethanol-free autofuel is difficult in many parts of the country and we encourage you to work with your airport to establish an ethanol-free premium grade autofuel self-service fueling station. There are many ways to accomplish this; one common method that is available on several airports is an aviation fuel club that uses self-service systems provided by U-Fuel.
