48th Reno National Air Races under way

This year's edition of the 48th Reno National Air Races at Stead Field, Nevada, got off to a blazing start as 24-year-old race pilot Steven Hinton, flying the highly modified P-51 Strega, set a new qualifying record of 499.16 mph on the very first day of qualifying in the Unlimited Category. Will Whiteside, flying the P-51 Voodoo, qualified second, and Stewart Dawson qualified third in Rare Bear. Rod Lewis' powerhouse Sea Fury, 232, flown by retired astronaut Robert "Hoot" Gibson, turned in the fourth-fastest qualifying time but then had to withdraw from competition due to mechanical difficulties. On the other hand, Gibson's withdrawal made room for Matt Jackson to join the qualifying pack in the Sea Fury Furias. Furias was on a "waitlist" to race because its entry paperwork arrived late.

WE MUST MEET FAA SAFETY TARGETS
Mac's Blog
The eternal frustration for anyone who has studied general aviation safety statistics is the complete lack of reliable data on exposure. The accident rates - number of accidents per 100,000 hours of flying - that you see in reports from the FAA and NTSB are based on an annual general aviation activity survey the FAA conducts.

The survey is now conducted primarily online instead of through the mail and it asks a selected minority of registered airplane owners how much they flew in the last year, under IFR, night, number of landings, and so on. The survey asks for answers to all of the questions I have, but I don't believe in the results.

E-AB FATAL ACCIDENT RATE HOLDS STEADY IN 2011
Accident ratesThe number of fatal accidents in experimental amateur-built aircraft continues to decline. From 67 in 2009 to a significant drop to 47 in 2010, the number is at 45 so far this year with two weeks to go. (The FAA tracks accidents by fiscal year which, for 2011, ends this month.) However, the agency does not separate fatal E-AB accidents from the overall numbers for the experimental category, currently at 67, and is in danger of crossing over the FAA's not-to-exceed level of 70.

NEW HURDLES FOR FAA FUNDING BILL IN SENATE
Hopes for avoiding another showdown over FAA funding that caused staff furloughs and project delays this summer dimmed somewhat on Thursday, as the U.S. Senate was stalled in a partisan standoff over transportation funding and a separate disaster aid bill. On Tuesday, the House of Representatives passed via voice vote the "Surface and Air Transportation Programs Extension Act of 2011," a temporary funding bill that extends funding at current levels for the FAA through January 30, 2012. H.R. 2887 then moved on to the Senate with the hopes that it would be approved and sent to President Obama for his signature before the current funding extension expires this Friday, September 16. The bill also calls for highway funding to be extended from October 1 through March 31, 2012. Read more

He and then-EAA President Tom Poberezny flew the first Young Eagles at the EAA Fly-In Convention at Oshkosh that year. Read more

PRESIDENT PROPOSES BIZAV TAX HIKE
Less than a year since business aircraft, along with other capital assets, were granted accelerated tax depreciation to help spur the lagging economy, the Obama Administration has proposed stretching the tax depreciation period for business aircraft by seven years. The Administration refers to the tax treatment of airplanes used for business as a "loophole" and proposes the changes to raise revenue to help pay for the American Jobs Act that the president announced last week.

Humongous Airships to Supply Northern Canada Communities

Humongous Airships to Supply Northern Canada Communities

Discovery Air is launching a northern Canada delivery service using hybrid airships to service isolated villages and mining camps. This type of hybrid aircraft is able to stay aloft both because of its aerodynamic design and because of the helium lift. These Heavy Lift Air Vehicles will be able to handle up to 50 tons, fly at 115 mph, and land and take off without environmental damage and without airports.

Pakistan Crash Reveals Bird-Mimicking UAV

Pakistan Crash Reveals Bird-Mimicking UAV

While some UAVs use biomimicry technology to improve their flight efficiency, it appears some of these small aircraft are being built to look like birds in an effort to appear innocuous or to blend into their surroundings. The Pakistan military recently published information about a bird-shaped surveillance UAV they recovered that had two cameras and crashed near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border due to equipment failure.

Composite Kit Helicopter Seats Six

Composite Kit Helicopter Seats Six

The president of Composite Helicopters of Auckland and his wife built a KC518 six-seat helicopter from the company’s kit in only six weeks. The entire composite fuselage is “made in one hit,” which helps the company keep the price of the kit low and enables builders to complete the helicopter in a comparatively short time. The KC518 Adventourer has a planned maximum gross weight of 3,200 pounds and cruising speed of 135 knots. 

Sectorless Air Traffic Control Improves Safety and Capacity
Sectorless Air Traffic Control Improves Safety and Capacity

German tests of sectorless air traffic control appear to improve both safety and capacity for national or international flight control systems. When a single German air traffic controller (ATC) guided an aircraft from the time it entered German airspace until the time it left, they were able to handle more planes. Both the ATCs and the pilots benefited from eliminating handoffs required when the airspace is divided into sectors with a different ATC being responsible for each sector.

Russian Two-Seat Light Helicopter

Russian Two-Seat Light Helicopter

A new Russian two-seat light helicopter with a Russian rotary engine is priced at $70,000. The aircraft is built with composite rotors and a composite fuselage, which help achieve the empty takeoff weight of only 1,060 pounds. The Berkut's operating cost is listed at only $50/hour and fuel consumption is expected to be 12 mpg.

TIMELESS VOICES: LEONARD MILHOLLAND
Timeless Voices of AviationLeonard Milholland was born in Kansas City in 1924. As a boy, he was fascinated with airplanes. He spent his time building, flying, and crashing stick and tissue airplane models, and sneaking off to visit the hangars at Richards Field. When World War II came along, Leonard enlisted in the Army Air Force, where he was eventually trained as an aircraft mechanic and gunner. He served the bulk of his time during the war based in Panama with a B-24 group stationed in the Canal Zone. After the war, he moved to Texas and worked for Shell Oil for thirty-three years. In 1970, Leonard began coming to the annual EAA convention in Oshkosh and has been a member ever since. He completed his first homebuilt, a Junior Ace, in 1974. Over the years he has built a number of airplanes, but Leonard is perhaps best known in the aviation world as the designer of the Legal Eagle ultralight. Today, Leonard sells plans for three original designs: the Legal Eagle, Double Eagle, and Legal Eagle XL, and is in the process of developing the LSA eligible Cabin Eagle. Watch the video

Where Are You Flying This Weekend?
There are 173 fly-ins and events over the next two weekends in the EAA Events Calendar. Find one near you or add your event!

Q & A: As a current certificated sport pilot, I am considering pursuing a private pilot certificate. My instructor wants me to obtain my third class medical ASAP during private pilot training. If, for some reason, I fail the medical before earning my private ticket, am I therefore disqualified as a sport pilot?

Answer: This is a very good - and very important - question as it will affect your ability to exercise the privileges of your sport pilot certificate. FAR 61.303(b) states the conditions under which a person may use a U.S. driver's license in place of a medical certificate, and 61.303(b)(2) says that the person must have been "found eligible for the issuance of at least a third class airman medical certificate at the time of his or her most recent application (if the person has applied for a medical certificate)."

Therefore, if you apply for an airman medical certificate and are found not eligible, you won't be able to exercise the privileges of your sport pilot certificate because you will not be eligible to use your driver's license, and you must have either a medical certificate or U.S. driver's license with your sport pilot certificate to be able to legally fly an LSA as a sport pilot. Your only remedy for this situation would be to apply for authorization for a special issuance of the airman medical certificate, which may or may not be available to you depending on the health issue(s) that caused you to be ineligible in the first place.
