WRIGHT FLYER MODEL B ARRIVES AT EAA MUSEUM
EAA headquarters this week, a flying copy of the a 1911 Wright Flyer
Model B arrived, donated by EAA Chapter 610, New Carlisle, Ohio, which
built the aircraft over a four-year span, beginning in 2001. The
aircraft stays true to the original save for some safety improvements in
the flight controls, an engine from a Model A Ford, and a larger
radiator, which only added 80 pounds to the original design. The
aircraft will be on display during AirVenture at Pioneer Airport. Copies
of two other historic Wright designs will also be at the event- a 1910
Wright Model R Vin Fiz and a, celebrating 100 years of soaring
flight, a 1911 Wright Glider. These will be displayed in the Federal
ED DOYLE WINS ANNUAL VALDEZ STOL COMPETITION
been about a year since we last wrote about pilot Ed Doyle, EAA 474018,
of Manhattan, Kansas, competitor in the annual Valdez Fly-In and Air
Show STOL competition each May in Valdez, Alaska. Doyle, who flew the
heavily modified experimental Super Cub Cuzoom owned by Mike
Olson, of Yakima, Washington, won the wide-open alternate bush plane
category in last weekend's annual event. Read

ICING IS DIFFERENT
icing is bad stuff. The drag of ice accumulation knocks a bunch
of knots off your airspeed. And the rough, uneven surface of
most icing alters the performance of the wings and tail, making
flying qualities and stall behavior unpredictable. But for most
of us the worst aspect of seeing ice start to form on the
leading edges is the uncertainty. That trace of ice won’t
really matter to any airplane.
But even that first trace of ice
raises anxiety in us pilots. Will the ice continue to build? Is
what I’m seeing really airframe ice, or is it just snow or
other frozen particles stuck at the stagnation point? Should I
change altitude? If so, which way?

MAKES FIRST U.S. FLIGHT
"Jetman" Rossy made his first U.S. flight in his jet-powered
wing on Saturday morning, May 7, over the Grand Canyon in Arizona,
Breitling reported this morning. He launched from a helicopter at 8,000
feet altitude and flew 200 feet above the rim of Grand Canyon West at
speeds of up to 190 mph, according to the Breitling report. The flight
occurred near Guano Point on the Hualapai Indian Reservation - about
2-1/2 hours southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada - lasted more than eight
minutes, and ended with Rossy parachuting safely to the canyon floor. Read

ACTS AS SPRINGBOARD FOR FLIGHTTRAINING REFORM
meeting of aviation educators took place this week in Atlanta, Georgia,
to begin a multi-year effort to improve general aviation safety. The
Pilot Training Reform Symposium, hosted by the Society of Aviation and
Flight Educators (SAFE),
laid a framework to reform the way pilots are trained, an effort that
SAFE says has not been attempted since the Civilian Pilot Training
Program 70 years ago. The event was attended by a broad spectrum of
industry groups and businesses and featured remarks from FAA
Administrator Randy Babbitt and participation both days from two of the
FAA's top managers, Mel Cintron and Van Kerns.

were en route to the Central Texas Airshow in Temple when they noticed
smoke in the cockpit of the homebuilt Ravin 500 powered by a Geared

is an Optionally Piloted Vehicle (OPV) called Firebird, which can be
flown manned or unmanned. The payloads are carried internally to help
extend aircraft endurance, which could be as long as 40 hours.

53 percent of you said that you thought the "mystery
helicopter" that was destroyed in the operation against bin Laden
in Pakistan was a modified Blackhawk as opposed to an all-new stealth

someone we've all heard of: Bob Hoover. Over the years, Hoover performed
flight demonstrations in a number of aircraft, including the F-100 and
F-86 jet fighters, but he's best known for his routines in his famous

|First Flight of Flying Shark Prototype
A prototype of the Chinese J-15 Flying Shark recently had its first flight. The limited payload of the J-15 indicates the aircraft will be mainly for defense, with attack jet being a secondary role. The Flying Shark appears to be an upgraded reverse-engineered Su-33. China is proving it’s serious about upgrading the country's aero industry, designing and building the J-15, the J-20, and other modern aircraft.
Propulsion Choice for Personal Sport Gyrocopter
||The Fliego Supergiro is a futuristic concept personal sport gyrocopter that is designed to use either a traditional internal combustion engine or an electric propulsion system. A personal aircraft like this would be great for landing in tight spots, and the designer envisions that the “pilot's helmet can project the necessary instruments to ensure maximum safety.”
Fliers Will Get Frequent Biker Miles
Apparently many bikers and fitness enthusiasts have requested exercise bikes for aircraft installation. Lufthansa Technik has modified a Recline Excite 700iSP ergometer to meet the airworthiness regulations for the European Aviation Safety Agency. The only caution is that lower oxygen concentrations at altitude could be an issue for some passengers with respiratory or other relevant health problems.
New System to AVOID Volcanic Ash
EasyJet is spending more than $1 million in collaboration with Norwegian researchers to improve and install “weather radar for ash” on its airliners. The AVOID (Airborne Volcanic Object Identifier and Detector) infrared technology spots ash clouds as much as 100 kilometers away, allowing pilots and flight control agencies to re-route the aircraft to avoid excessive ash intake in the jet engines. This ash radar was considered necessary due to the Eyjafjallajökull eruption in 2010 that caused more than 63,000 flights to be canceled and an estimated loss of more than $5 billion.
Chill Out With Aircraft Icing Forecasts
A new computer-generated weather forecast system is designed to decrease the chance of aircraft accidents due to in-flight icing. The Forecast Icing Product with Severity system is updated hourly and provides a 12-hour icing forecast. If a pilot’s desired flight path is forecast to have a high probability of icing, he or she can either cancel the flight or use the U.S. national forecast map to plan a route to minimize or avoid probable icing.

TIMELESS VOICES OF AVIATION: ED
Kobbeman graduated from Army Air Force flight training in September 1942
as a single-engine fighter pilot. After transition training in the P-39
Airacobra, Ed was shipped to New Caledonia in the South Pacific where he
joined the 68th Fighter Squadron of the 347th Fighter Group, 13th Air
Force. After some initial training with the group at New Caledonia, Ed
flew up to Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, arriving on April 17,
1943. During the next thirteen months, Ed would fly 98 combat missions
over the course of three combat tours. As he says, he was one of the “lucky
few” to make it through till the end of the war, but not without
surviving some pretty hairy moments. Watch

to have completed in a year or so. In August 2003 I
had the unfortunate youthful experience of getting a
DUI. While this has been expunged from my driving
record, it will permanently remain on my FAA record.

this going to prevent me from getting insurance for
provided by Bob Mackey, representative for the EAA
Aircraft Insurance Plan, administered by Falcon
Generally speaking, aviation insurance companies
will ask for more details about a DUI if it has
occurred within the last three years. Typically
insurance company underwriters will want to know a
little more about the circumstances of the DUI,
specifically if it had anything to do with aviation.
If the DUI occurred more than three years ago, the
insurance company usually will offer insurance and
will not surcharge the premium.

In addition, SkyView flight plans can now be set up to provide turn anticipation between flight plan legs. When so configured, SkyView starts its turn guidance in advance of a waypoint to fly a transition that will not overshoot the next leg. Current SkyView customers can download Version 3.1 for free by clicking here.
PISTONS SHOW POSITIVE TREND IN INDUSTRY SHIPMENTS
The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) released the industry’s shipment and billings figures for the first quarter. In the first three months of 2011, total GA airplane shipments fell 4.6 percent, from 390 units in 2010 to 372 units this year. Billings for GA airplanes totaled $3.7 billion in the first three months, down nearly 20 percent. Piston-powered airplane shipments totaled 188 units compared to 166 units delivered in the first three months of 2010, a 13.3-percent increase. GAMA’s president and CEO, Pete Bunce, notes that the increase in the piston segment may be indicative of the start of an economic recovery. For more details on the report, click here.
