SAVE OUR GPS COALITION
CALLS LIGHTSQUARED SOLUTION 'BIZARRE'
The Coalition to Save Our GPS, of which EAA is a member, spoke out on
behalf of the group after LightSquared forwarded a "solution"
earlier this week to the GPS interference caused by its proposed new 4G
network. Jim Kirkland, vice president and general counsel of Trimble,
said in a statement, "This latest gambit by LightSquared borders on
the bizarre. Last week LightSquared unilaterally delayed filing of the
study report that culminated months of intensive work to evaluate
interference to GPS, because they purportedly needed two more weeks to
analyze the results. Days later, well before the report is scheduled to
be filed, LightSquared unilaterally announces that it has found a
SPIRIT COMING ALIVE IN CHINA
been hearing a lot lately about the expansion of China's aviation
industry, from manufacturing GA airplanes there to opening up more
airspace to fly them. Then there are the dreamers: Chinese citizens who
yearn to fly and, absent any other way to do so, take matters into their
own hands. Such is the case with Liu Chun Sheng, a 40-year-old factory
worker from Guangzhou, Jiangsu Province, who has made a single-place,
twin-engine, tilt-rotor, amphibious airplane from scratch. Read
YOUR NOT-SO-SECRET ID NUMBER
you know that your airplane has a distinctive identification
number that is not your N number? And depending on what type of
transponder you have, that special number may be broadcast
automatically without you even knowing it.
The special identification number
is assigned to every registered airplane. The number is
sometimes called the ICAO (International Civil Aviation
Organization) number, or can be labeled the Mode S number. The
reason it is called the ICAO identification is because unlike
the registration (N number) it is unique for the world, not just
a single country.

PILOT SUSPENDED FOR DEROGATORY RANT BROADCAST OVER STUCK MIC
Southwest Airlines pilot has been suspended after a flight deck rant was
broadcast over a Houston Center frequency due to a stuck mic. The nearly
tirade, posted by KPRC-TV
in Houston, occurred in March and involved derogatory comments about
flight attendants at the airline. The controller tried in vain to
interrupt the pilot and several crews were heard disavowing the
statements, such as Skywest 6285: “And they wonder why airline pilots
have a bad reputation." Read
IN GA PILOT SURVEY CAN AFFECT ACCIDENT RATES
Each year the FAA conducts the General Aviation Pilot Survey, sending a
questionnaire to all aircraft owners and operators of GA aircraft. It is
used for planning of FAA operations, evaluation of safety programs,
impacts of regulations, and assessment of safety of the GA community.
The survey is one of the only ways the FAA can measure how aircraft are
flown and its results, combined with known GA accidents in a given year,
help the FAA determine the GA accident rate. That rate can be affected
by low participation by aircraft owners. Read
CALL AT KENNEDY: AIRLINER ABORTS TAKEOFF RUN
a Lufthansa Airbus A340 began its takeoff roll on Runway 22R at John F.
Kennedy International Airport Monday night (June 20), an Egypt Air
Boeing 777 nearly blundered onto the runway. "Cancel takeoff!
Cancel takeoff plans!" the tower controller blurts on the tower
recording. The crew of Lufthansa Flight 411 responded that they were
aborting the takeoff. Egypt Air 986 never entered the runway but did
cross the "hold short" line and Lufthansa 411 had to brake
hard to stop. Read

Price cuts in aviation are rare, but Jeppesen and Garmin have teamed up

A380: STRIKE TWO
the second time in the last few months, an Airbus A380 had trouble
taxiing without brushing its wingtips against a solid object. This time
it was at the Paris Air Show, when Airbus' A380 rammed its right wingtip
into the side of a display building while taxiing by. One
photo shows the iconic arrow-shaped Airbus winglet embedded in the
wall of the building near the top. In April an Air France A380 clipped
the tail of a regional jet, causing it to spin
around on the ramp at JFK Airport.

supplier and production design challenges. The company says it remains
committed to the aircraft development program and that first Transition

Cessna Wing Cuff Design Saves Fuel, Lifts More
Cessna’s new wing leading edge cuff and winglets give the Caravan a nice boost in performance. The drooped aluminum cuff increases the wing chord and the overall wing design changes result in higher takeoff and landing weights and at the same time improve fuel economy and reduce ice build-up.
Liquid Methanol Fuel Cells With High Energy Density
Direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs) have big advantages over the older technology of hydrogen fuel cells. Fuel for DMFCs from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory is liquid methanol, which is much easier to store and handle than hydrogen. The higher energy density and simplicity of design of these fuel cells makes them appealing for electric aircraft applications.
Electro-Thermal System Zaps Wing Leading Edge Ice
The Electro-thermal Ice Protection System (EIPS) developed by Bombardier Aerospace completed test flights, successfully demonstrating the effectiveness of this new electric-powered ice protection system for wing leading edges. The EIPS technology eliminates bleed-air ducting for icing prevention and saves energy while increasing aircraft availability in weather conditions likely to cause icing.

TIMELESS VOICES OF AVIATION: HARVEY
Ryder’s first memory of aviation was seeing Charles Lindbergh fly over
his home town during Lindbergh’s goodwill tour of the U.S. after his
transatlantic flight in May 1927. As a young man, Harvey began working
at Cessna as a flight line parts distributor after attending Wichita
University (now Wichita State University). Impressed by the uniforms he
saw pilots wearing, he decided to enlist in the Army Air Force in
October 1942. Harvey qualified for flight training and became a B-17
pilot. Shipped overseas, Harvey and his crew joined the 369th Bomb
Squadron of the 306th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force based at Thurleigh,
England. He flew his first three combat missions as a copilot with an
experienced crew, then he and his crew began flying together. Before
long Harvey was promoted to a flight leader. He flew thirty combat
missions before the end of the war in Europe and had some hairy
experiences, including a run in with an ME-262 jet. Watch

WAX YOUR PLANE WHILE IT’S WET
Waxing a plane or car can be a big job, but a new spray wax application can make the job easier. Wax As-U-Dry can be applied to an airplane while it’s still wet from a wash and then dried with a towel or chamois. Its carnauba formula reacts with water to penetrate the surface and leave a waxed finish without haze, streaking, residue, or discoloring trim. It also contains an anti-corrosion additive that protects paint from rust, road salt, acid rain, and bird droppings. For more information, click here.
