RESTORED AVRO ANSON MARK 1 MAKES FIRST FLIGHT IN NEW ZEALAND
Avro Anson Mark 1An Avro Anson Mark 1 made its first flight last week after a recently completely a 10-year restoration at Nelson Airport in Nelson, New Zealand. The airplane, now the only flying example in the world, was the first RAF monoplane with a retractable undercarriage. It began production in 1935, and more than 11,000 were created until production ceased in 1952. Mark 1s were widely used in World War II by British, Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand air forces as trainer planes. Bill and Robyn Reid restored the plane after acquiring it from the Australian Airworld Museum in Northern Victoria. Bill Reid is scheduled to attend AirVenture Oshkosh 2012.

THE OSHKOSH ARRIVAL QUIZ
Mac's BlogI hope that you are finalizing your plans to fly into Oshkosh soon for AirVenture 2012. When I landed on Runway 27 on Tuesday, July 17, I saw the first airplane in the North 40 parking area, a Cessna 210. Stancie and I were the only airplane on tower frequency from the time Milwaukee approach cleared us for the visual to Runway 27. What a difference a couple days makes.

Since we all live and fly by the Oshkosh AirVenture NOTAM, how about a little quiz to test your knowledge of the procedures. Read more

Working together, Wittman Regional Airport management, Vintage Aircraft Association, and EAA staff have been able to re-establish this strip to allow pilots of unique and historic aircraft to bring them to the annual fly-in without fear of having to land on pavement. When given prior approval by the FAA ATC tower personnel in Oshkosh, antique aircraft equipped with a tailskid or tailwheel that are more safely operated off a turf strip will be allowed to land on the temporary grass runway, located southwest of the approach end of runway 36L.  Read more

Laser Beam Can Keep Aircraft Flying Indefinitely
AeroInnovations LaserMotive kept a Stalker UAV powered for more than 48 hours in a recent technology capability demonstration by beaming laser power from a ground-based power station to a photovoltaic receiver on the aircraft. The battery-powered aircraft has a two-hour duration, but the laser allows the UAV to remain aloft as long as needed.
Israeli Bird Radar Makes Safer Middle East Airspace
AeroInnovations Israel's foremost bird expert has developed a system that tracks movement of birds throughout his country and the nearby airspace of bordering countries. His system uses specially modified weather radar equipment to track birds up to 62 miles away. Real-time bird location updates are made available to Israeli pilots so they can avoid areas that have a high likelihood of bird strikes.
SpaceX Rocket Engine Has 55 Percent More Thrust
AeroInnovations The Merlin 1D, a rocket engine that was successfully tested at the SpaceX development facility, has 55 percent more thrust than its existing engine. This rocket engine will be used on both the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and the company's upcoming Falcon Heavy rocket, which will have capability for lunar launches or voyages to Mars.
NextGen Boeing BWB 'Large Enough for a Pilot'
AeroInnovations Boeing's X-48C is its latest blended wing body research aircraft and is about to start a six-month flight test schedule. Although it is remotely piloted, Boeing plans to make the X-48C the immediate predecessor to a technology demonstrator that is "large enough for a pilot to fly." This futuristic aircraft is expected to make about 25 flights between now and the end of the year.
India Reveals Design for Unmanned Stealth Bomber
AeroInnovations India recently unveiled a stealthy blended wind body, unmanned bomber design, which is officially called the IUSAV (Indian Unmanned Strike Air Vehicle). The aircraft's shape and the materials and coatings help make it essentially invisible to enemy radar. The IUSAV will carry smart bombs for its autonomous airborne attacks.
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.
