ACT NOW! COMMENT ON MEDICAL EXEMPTION REQUEST BY JULY 2
EAA-AOPA Medica ExemptionThe FAA is allowing a short 20-day official public comment period for the EAA/AOPA third-class medical certification exemption request, beginning with the notice published on Tuesday, June 12, in the Federal Register.

The 20-day public comment period, which ends July 2, is shorter than the typical 30- or 60-day period established for comments. More than 1,800 public comments have already been submitted on the exemption request through the Regulations.gov website. Those comments will be included as part of the docket on the exemption request, which was unveiled in late March as a way to significantly reduce a substantial economic and regulatory burden for pilots who fly recreationally.

Flights rescheduled for this weekend

WE ARE WHAT WE FLY
Mac's BlogThis week I was invited to speak to the international gathering of Gulfstream business jet operators. Safety was the theme, but the exact topic was my choice.

What Richard Collins, who has spent even more decades than me studying accident reports, and I have marveled at his how the very same pilots behave differently in different categories of airplane. Why does the highly experienced ATP rated pilot who has a near perfect safety record in business and airline jets often make the same mistakes, and same risky decisions in piston airplanes as a less experienced pilot does?

AeroInnovations

If you have suggestions or submissions for EAA’s weekly AeroInnovations column, please send them to AeroInnovations editor Bob Waldron.

Park This Aircraft in the 'BaTboT Cave'
AeroInnovations Researchers in Spain and the U.S. have built an aircraft that imitates the flight pattern of bats in order to achieve more efficient flapping flight and to give the aircraft much greater maneuverability. The wings of this BaTboT UAV change shape during flight, folding in toward the fuselage on the upstroke to reduce drag, improving efficiency by up to 35 percent. Adjusting the wings lets the BaTboT quickly turn to avoid obstacles and fly safely in confined spaces.
Joggobot Is Your Airborne Running Buddy
AeroInnovations The Joggobot quadcopter will soon give joggers the option of having a new companion when they go for a run. Two Australians have developed custom software and a "target T-shirt" that enables a Parrot AR.Drone to become either your training coach or a robotic pet to keep you company while you jog. The Joggobot flies ahead of you, keeping an eye on the pattern on your special T-shirt, and can either maintain the speed you set on the control or just stay a set distance ahead of you.
Bristell and Persistence: A Good Travel LSA
AeroInnovations The BRM Aero Bristell is a new LSA designed by Milan Bristell that's great for comfortable travel. Incorporating and refining design features from four previous versions he's created, Milan calls this plane his "fifth-generation" concept. His persistence has paid off with a cabin width that's about a foot wider than a Cessna 172 and an aircraft with a 700-nautical-mile range and cruise speed of 133 mph.
First Autonomous Flight for Phantom Eye Spy in the Sky
AeroInnovations The hydrogen-powered Boeing Phantom Eye UAV recently made its maiden autonomous flight. This ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) aircraft has the time aloft capability of four days before needing refueling. Because it's powered by liquid hydrogen, the only emission during flight is water.
Hot Hookup by K-Max UAV Marine Helicopter
Military history was made recently when the U.S. Marine Corps K-Max helicopter did the first-ever hot hookup to an unmanned aircraft. The helicopter has been hauling suspended loads of cargo for the Marines in Afghanistan, but all its missions up to this one did the cargo hookups with the aircraft on the ground. The goal for K-Max is to develop it into an autonomous all-weather cargo supply aircraft that won't put pilots or crews in harm's way on the battlefield.
AeroInnovations aims to highlight developments that have potential to impact the future of aviation.  EAA does not necessarily endorse the ideas, products, services, or views contained therein.

TIMELESS VOICES OF AVIATION: BRUCE OLIVER
Timeless VoicesBruce Oliver, EAA 498462, first learned to fly in his college roommate's PT-19 in the early 1950s. After college Bruce attended Baptist Seminary and became a pastor in western Texas. He was later appointed by the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board as a missionary pilot in Brazil, where he flew for 15 years, hauling everything from supplies and mail to passengers in and out of a small village 750 miles in the country's interior. In this short interview, Bruce recounts his most memorable experience - an emergency medical flight at night on June 1, 1970. Watch the video.

Q&A:  I'm an EAA member and was getting ready to send my coupons in for the Win the Cub Sweepstakes. I couldn't find in the directions if you wanted them separated or left in the sheet form. I did see that each sheet needs to be mailed separately. What is the proper way to submit them?

Note: You can also enter the Win the Cub Sweepstakes online or at AirVenture Oshkosh 2012. Mail in entries to the sweepstakes must be postmarked by August 15, 2012, and received by August 22, 2012. The drawing for the restored 1940 J-3 Cub is scheduled for September 10, 2012.

The vehicle is an improved version of Gamera I, which last year set world records for flight duration. Like Gamera I, Gamera II is a hand- and pedal-powered X-shaped vehicle with four rotors, measuring 103 feet diagonally across. However, Gamera II weighs only 71 pounds, 35 pounds lighter than the previous vehicle, and features enhanced rotor design, improved transmission, and a redesigned flight deck.
