Fall Back Lightly Into Trade Shows Now come a few quiet weeks after which, from September until later November, air cargo trade shows will be front and center.
But wait, the pandemic is still loose and people are still getting sick.
The challenge seems to be for preventive methodology and medicine to position ourselves a half a step ahead of a disease that mutates quickly.
While the dreaded face masks wait in the wings for now, a new global health emergency is rearing its ugly head called “monkey pox” and can be spread via surfaces where it lives for some time.
We are sitting here writing what might take place at The FIATA World Congress in Busan, Korea during mid-September.
Normally organizations are boastful of who some of the higher profile attendees will be.
FIATA has posted this message to their trade show website:
“Please note that the Local Organization Committee (LOC) cannot publish the list of the participants to the 2022 FIATA World Congress (FWC) on its website for privacy reasons.
“Only registered participants will be able to access the participants list through the custom-made 2022 FWC App, which will be made available early September.”
In May we reported several cases of COVID post Air Cargo India and combined meetings of United Airlines employees in New Orleans led to a rash of infections termed “super spreader events” by sources.
So now we are at the doorstep of the Fall Trade Show season with IATA World Cargo Symposium scheduled for September 28th in London and the International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) November 8 in Miami and Logitrans set for November 16-18 in beautiful Istanbul.
So maybe the numbers will be a bit off for these shows.
But what is your strategy if you are going?
What can you expect or at least hope for at one or all of these events?

AvTalk Episode 175: Thanks Nancy On this episode of AvTalk, SPAR19 becomes the most tracked flight of all time, a bizarre mystery surrounds a tragic flight, and Seth Miller joins us to explain the proposed passenger refund rules from the US Department of Transportation.
SPAR19 becomes Flightradar24’s most tracked flight ever
The flight of a US Air Force C-40 from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei was followed by nearly 3 million people throughout the flight and more than 700,000 as it landed in Taiwan. We discuss the significance of the flight and how it affected Flightradar24’s infrastructure and what we’re doing now to ensure a better experience for everyone.
FAA nearing final sign off on Boeing 787 deliveries
The acting administrator of the FAA visited Boeing’s facilities in South Carolina this week ahead of an expected sign off on the resumption of 787 deliveries.
Airbus cancels Qatar A350 orders
Reuters is reporting that Airbus has canceled all remaining Qatar Airways A350 orders, striking 19 A350s from the books. This is the latest and most dramatic escalation in the long running dispute between the European airframer and Qatar.
A bizarre tragedy in North Carolina
A bizarre and tragic turn of events after a hard landing led to a damaged aircraft, one of the pilots of a CASA 212 jumped out of the aircraft—without a parachute—as the plane was attempting to make an emergency landing in Raleigh.
New rules for refunds
The US Department of Transportation is proposing new rules for when airlines must refund passenger fares. Seth Miller of PaxEx.aero joins us to explain the proposal and what it could mean if the new rules are enacted.
How big should airplane seats be?
The US FAA wants to know how large airplane seats should be. The request relates entirely to how large seats need to be to safely evacuate an aircraft, so before you submit your comment know that they don’t care how comfortable you are.

Between Two Wings at WomenVenture On this special episode of Between Two Wings recorded live at EAA AirVenture 2022 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, we talk with Olga Custodio, a retired American Airlines and US Air Force Pilot; Claire Schindler, a corporate pilot; Kerry Smith, Deputy Chief Pilot for Product Development at Boeing Commercial Airplanes; and Annie Vogel, a GA pilot and aviation journalist. The panel discussed how women across different sectors of the aviation industry can find success and fulfilling careers.

Standardize the Industry continued In our last episode, we talked about the age-old question of whether aircraft mechanics/aircraft maintenance technicians were skilled or unskilled. After citing an article published by the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association, it’s been highlighted, at least to us, that AMTs/AMEs are in fact considered skilled labor, but it also showed some of the convoluted ways our professional occupation is coded. Today, we’re going to take a dive and see what some of the codes are, what they say about their occupation, and talk about some of the numbers they project for that occupation, if any. To learn more about SOCs, visit www.bls.gov or www.onetonline.orgDo you like this episode?

Drone News: Remote ID Case Closed, NASA and Zipline Partner, eVTOL Crashes, New FAASafety Course In this week's drone news; The RDQ vs FAA court case has been settled and remote ID will continue as planned, NASA and Zipline partner for fleet integration, an experimental eVOTL crash, and a new FAASafety course by Pilot Institute.

ALC-803: https://www.faasafety.gov/gslac/ALC/course_content.aspx?pf=1&preview=true&cID=803

Remote ID was upheld in the US. Court of Appeals this week.
Race Day Quads sued the FAA based on the 4th amendment, procedural Mis-steps, and concerns of pilot safety.
“Remote ID technology requires drones in flight to emit publicly readable radio signals reflecting certain identifying information, including their serial number, location, and performance information. Those signals can be received, and the Remote ID information read, by smart phones and similar devices using a downloadable application available to the FAA, government entities, and members of the public, including other aircraft operators.”
For a full analysis, see our live stream and the article from DroneXL!
https://dronexl.co/2022/07/29/faas-remote-id-for-drones-upheld-in-court/

NASA has partnered with Zipline to create a vision for autonomous fleets of drones.
To achieve this, researchers are using a small number of people to operate large amounts of drones.
This experience along with Zipline’s other experience with operations of many aircraft will help shape the future of fleet operations in the US.

The Guardian G1 is an eVTOL made by the company Aura Aerospace.
In a recent test, the G1 caught fire due to a failed current regulator.
“The problem is that certain components, such as commercially available high-power transistors and FETs, are not at all suited to aerospace electric applications. Only when certified power controllers are available will electric flying be able to get off the ground safely,” Thompson said.

Managing your money in a high inflation, post-COVID world The COVID-19 crisis may have receded, but it’s been replaced by soaring inflation, rising interest rates, and worries about a possible recession. It’s being caused by the continued impact of pandemic restrictions, the war in Ukraine, talent shortages, and supply chain issues. In this special episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, Adam Thorn speaks to MGD Wealth’s Richard Marsden and Jessica Harris to make sense of our new world and how to navigate it in order to make it through without experiencing financial strain or loss. They discuss how you should prepare, why it’s important to take a long-term view, and why it’s vital to keep a close eye on your superannuation and any insurance you may have within it.

ADU 01268: RaceDayQuad vs FAA, ruling out as judge uphelds Remote ID – what next? Judge uphelds remote id in RaceDayQuad vs FAA ruling. What implications does this have for pilots and the industry?
In today's episode we talk about the outcome of the RaceDayQuad vs FAA on Remote ID as judge upheld remote id. We go over the implications of the ruling and what this means to pilots and the industry at large.

RaceDayQuads sued the FAA in April early 2021 and filed the arguments on August 4, 2021. After subsequent replies and arguments, The Department of Justice (DOJ) and RaceDayQuads argued in court in front of a judge and a ruling was made by the judge based on the arguments. To know more about history of the case and relevant details listen to our earlier podcast on the topic.

Today's episode is brought to you by Drone U mapping events and classes. We talk about some of the new changes we have made to our mapping classes and course curriculum to stay updated with some of the recent trends in the mapping industry such as going over new products for geo-referencing, geo-tagging, GPS and more. Visit our Drone U events page for more details on classes and courses.

In today's episode we discuss all the implications of the ruling and how it can potentially impact the pilot and the industry and how we can proceed further in light of the ruling mandating the continued remote id policy. We discuss about compliance and security, the availability of pilot information publicly and if its easy for the average citizen to gather pilot data from drones flying in the area.

Tune in today to get all the updates from the ruling and to understand its implications.

ADU 01266: How can I fly in clear airspace when DJI has it designated as a red zone? What options do pilots have if they intend to fly in clear airspace near a designated DJI red zone?
Today's question is from John, who is working on a project to conduct flight missions around a prison that is no longer functional yet is classified as a red zone by DJI. John would like to know if Pilots have options to fly in such clear airspace and what they would need to know prior to flying.

Today's episode is brought to you by Drone U mapping events and classes. We talk about some of the new changes we have made to our mapping classes and course curriculum to stay updated with some of the recent trends in the mapping industry such as going over new products for geo-referencing, geo-tagging, GPS and more. Visit our Drone U events page for more details on classes and courses.

We start off today's show by discussing 3 options that pilots have to effectively fly over red zone while also discussing the approximate times it would take to seek permission.

Our option 1 is to apply to FAA to void a red zone and the steps required to seek clearance while flying over such areas. Drone U members have exclusive access to our step-by-step instruction video on applying to the FAA to void a red zone.

Option 2 is to apply for a QEP (Qualified Entities Program). The Qualified Entities Program (QEP) allows Government and Public Safety entities to have their DJI drone's altitude and geo-fencing limitations unlocked and as a certified Part 107 pilot you could seek clearance under the program for conducting flights in red zones.

Option 3 is to visit drone-hacks website and navigate through the process of negating geofencing abilities on your drone. Drone-hacks can assist pilots with differing firmware to ensure removal of geofencing abilities.

We also discuss an additional option of using drones other than DJI that do not possess geofencing abilities and would allow flights irrespective of DJI's red zone.

In summary we discuss the quick and easy steps available for pilots along with the timeline for each option that pilots can pursue to seek permission / unlock the DJI red zone. That's it for this quick podcast episode. Tune in for more great shows to come.

Episode 96: World Aerobatic Championships Day 1 Welcome back! It is WAC time baby!!!!!!!!!! We are releasing this one a bit early to recap the start of WAC 2022. Today, 22 pilots flew the known, with the rest flying tomorrow. It was filled with ups and downs today as we finished the day with Rob Holland in 1st place, with the former 2019 WAC champion, Louis Vanel in second. There were some HZs thrown into the mix but three U.S. Team members are in the top 10 as of right now which is very exciting. Perhaps more exciting, will be the flying tomorrow as we finish the known. There are some badass heavy hitters ready to shake things up tomorrow. We talk all about it on the episode today, and tomorrow we will follow up when the known flights finish. Thank you to LIFT Aviation for supporting the podcast.

Pilot Training Causes Fatal Cessna 421 Crash Episode 126
Poor pilot training is a central cause of a Cessna 421C crash in Florida. The NTSB report documents the crash, but misses the opportunity to fully analyze the training failures. With the number of accidents that involve training issues on the rise, the Flight Safety Detectives dig into this accident to share important safety takeaways.
“The good news is that pilot training quality issues are on the radar of FAA inspectors,” John says. He and Greg agree that attention and improvements can’t come quick enough.
Many recent accidents show obvious training deficiencies among new and experienced pilots. John and Greg heard from many people at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh that this is an issue that needs to be discussed.
This episode offers background information on a December 2012 crash in Florida. The pilot had 1200+ flight hours, and just 1.5 hours in the accident aircraft. Contributing issues include maintenance, operational, and training deficiencies. John and Greg set the stage to cover these in more detail in the next episode.
Many listeners visited with John, Greg and Todd at the Avemco booth at Oshkosh. The feedback will be used to shape future episodes. Don’t miss what’s to come - subscribe to the Flight Safety Detectives YouTube channel, listen at your favorite podcast service and visit the Flight Safety Detectives website.

Part 1: Cosmos 954 - Raining Radiation on Canada's Arctic This series, we are doing a deep dive on Cosmos 954, the Soviet spy satellite carrying a nuclear reactor that deorbited and crashed into Canada's Northwest Territories. In Part 1, we focus on the satellite itself, how it failed, and how a little-known American government agency stepped up to tackle a nuclear disaster. Topics covered include:

- Why the Soviets loaded a spy satellite with weapons-grade uranium
- The horrible "failsafes" they designed into their satellites
- How a nuclear prank in Boston scared the US into taking accidents seriously
- How all of this is (tangentially) Korolev and Khrushchev's fault

31. New product successes and failures, with Sporty's Doug Ranly What are the most revolutionary aviation products of the last 25 years? If you immediately thought of a glass panel or a new airplane, Doug Ranly wants you to think again. As the director of new products at Sporty's Pilot Shop, he's seen a lot of technology come and go, and he believes portable products have the biggest impact because they affect the most pilots. In this gear-focused episode, he names his top four products, shares some less successful inventions, and describes his process for evaluating a new gadget. Doug also talks about his first experience with active noise reduction headsets (in Iraq, not in an airplane), what products he'd like to see invented, and what product he wishes companies would stop inventing. In the Ready to Copy segment, you'll hear why Doug loves the RV-12, his pet peeve about flashlights, and what he learned as a carny.

AvTalk Episode 174: Spirit turns its lonely eyes to Blue On this week’s episode of AvTalk, one chapter of the saga of Spirit Airlines comes to a close and another begins. We review the second quarter results for Boeing and Airbus and note some common themes. And we’re joined by Matt Chaifetz, CEO of Contour Airlines, to discuss the airline’s unique position as a public charter carrier offering mostly essential air service flights on well-appointed Embraer jets.
Spirit turns its lonely eyes to Blue
Spirit shareholders voted down Frontier’s merger proposal, setting the stage for a tie up with JetBlue.
41 is an interesting number
Jason apologizes for his utter wrongness as Qatar orders 25 + 25 737 MAX on the last day of the Farnborough Airshow. Plus, Condor’s post-show A320neo family order is very specific.
A good Q2 for Airbus and Boeing, but similar challenges ahead
Boeing and Airbus each reported decent earnings this week, but the warning from both major aircraft manufacturers was the same: the supply chain is the limiting factor.
Contour Airlines CEO Matt Chaifetz
Contour provides Part 135 public charter service to cities around the United States, mostly as part of the Essential Air Service program. We talk with Contour CEO Matt Chaifetz about the airline’s unique-for-now model, how the airline is dealing with pilot hiring, and some of the unexpected benefits for passengers.
NTSB releases AA300 final report
In April 2019, an American Airlines A321 departing New York (JFK) rolled to the left and struck an airport sign and the ground with its left wing. The pilots decided to return to JFK shortly after takeoff and the flight landed safely. The NTSB has released its long-awaited final report and it describes an incident that came close to being much, much worse. We break down the reports conclusions.
Southwest attempted to thwart investigations
In a new report by the Department of Transportation sent to the US Office of Special Counsel, the department investigated whistleblower complaints about the relationship between Southwest Airlines and the FAA, alleging that Southwest attempted to hamper investigations into its use of aircraft purchased outside the US, among other actions.
TCAS for the win
Two Pakistan International Airlines flights were en route over Iran when PK211 was cleared to descend into the path of PK286. Both aircraft received TCAS resolution advisories, with PK211 instructed to climb and PK286 instructed to descend.
SpiceJet’s double trouble
Indian regulators have limited SpiceJet’s flights to half its schedule for eight weeks. The Indian DGCA will also closely monitor SpiceJet’s activities after a series of incidents.
How to turn the A400M into a fire truck
Airbus has tested a modular fire fighting kit for the A400M. The roll on-roll off module can drop 20 tonnes of water in 10 seconds.

Archer Flight Testing Gains Momentum, On Pace to Achieve Transition Flight By Year End
Archer Aviation Inc. announced it is confident it will achieve its goal of flying full transition flights with its Maker aircraft by year-end. Flight tests of the full-scale 12-motor eVTOL demonstrator aircraft with a Tilt Propeller System (TPS) have been successful.
Maker successfully completed its first hover test flight in December 2021 and since then the engineering team has focused on the development and testing of the systems needed for a full transition to horizontal flight.
Errant drone briefly shuts down D.C. airport
Air traffic was shut down at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport for 45 minutes. There is no information about who was operating the drone, if it was taken down, or if it was retrieved.
The DHS told Congress that TSA has reported nearly 2,000 drone sightings near U.S. airports since 2021. Pilots had to take “65 evasive actions” after drones came too close or disturbed aircraft.
World Cup to use drones to help protect stadiums
Utah-based Fortem Technologies has reached an agreement with Qatar&#8217;s interior ministry to provide the interceptor drones at this winter&#8217;s Fifa World Cup in Qatar. Fortem’s “DroneHunters” that shoot nets will be able to bring down small rogue drones. These are autonomous, radar-guided drones.
Laser-Controlled Drones Can Evade Signal-Jamming Countermeasures
The counter-drone technology that physically attacks rogue drones with a net or a projectile requires that you track the drone’s movement. On the other hand, signal jamming doesn’t require such precise tracking. But now British company QinetiQ has a way to remotely operate drones without the communication signals that can be jammed. The new system uses lasers or Free-Space Optical Communications (FSO, or FSOC) signals.
Air Force’s RQ-4 Global Hawk drones headed for retirement in FY27
The US Air Force plans to phase out all remaining RQ-4 Global Hawk reconnaissance drones by fiscal 2027. Northrop Grumman was informed they should expect that the fleet will reach its end of life by that date. In a statement, an Air Force spokeswoman said, “Our ability to win future high-end conflicts requires accelerating investment in connected, survivable platforms and accepting short-term risks by divesting legacy ISR assets that offer limited capability against peer and near-peer threats.”
What a snap! Moment alligator leaps out of Brazilian river and devours nosy fisherman&#8217;s drone in mid-flight
A Brazilian man was testing his new drone and had seen some alligators, so he flew back to the spot. The drone hovered over one of the alligators who eyed the drone for a few seconds. The gator then lept out of the water, grabbed the drone, and swam away.

ADU 01265: What is the go-to drone since we can’t find the Phantom anymore? As the Phantom drones near their end of life, what drones are good alternatives for all round performance?
We're back to recording podcasts after a hiatus and in this episode we address a long standing question in drone pilots' mind on what drone would replace the Phantom drones, that have captured every domain of the drone industry through it's value for money and performance.

Today's question is from Gary, who would like to know what drone is the go-to choice for pilots now that the Phantoms are being phased out and second hand drones are expensive.

Today's episode is brought to you by Drone U mapping events and classes. We talk about some of the new changes we have made to our mapping classes and course curriculum to stay updated with some of the recent trends in the mapping industry such as going over new products for geo-referencing, geo-tagging, GPS and more. Visit our Drone U events page for more details on classes and courses.

We start off today's show with why the Phantoms have become renowned for their performance and versatility and the features which make them very suitable for carrying out flights and missions in different domains such as mapping, inspection and overall videography while also discussing its ability to support 3rd party applications. We then discuss why the Mavic 3 is not a good replacement (at least as of today) and what limitations the Mavic 3 has, in comparison to the Phantom.

Our suggestion for the go-to drone to replace the Phantom is the Inspire 2 and we delve into the details on why the Inspire 2 is best bang for the buck. We discuss its features and camera options using which pilots can add value to their deliverables.

In our last section we go over our recent move to Colorado and appreciate the welcoming nature of the people that live here.

Live from OshKosh – A Pilot’s Story of Disaster Averted Episode 125
You never know what you will learn at the Avemco Insurance booth! John, Greg and Todd are at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. A conversation with a pilot and listener revealed a story of an air disaster averted that the Flight Safety Detectives had to share. Hear about Heather’s flight that resulted in a damaged prop and landing gear.
“I caption this story, ‘Am I really ready,’” says Greg. “It’s an important lesson every pilot and aspiring pilot needs to hear.”
Heather shares what happened during a solo flight to a new airport. It was her first straight in approach and a bounce on landing caused damage that she was initially unaware of. She’s examined what happened and shares what she did well as well as mistakes she doesn’t want other pilots to make.
This story could have been another air disaster, but instead offers important insights for anyone who wants to succeed in the cockpit.

RFT 581: Airline Pilot Murder/Suicides Preliminary evidence suggests the crash of a China Eastern Airlines Corp. jet in March may be the latest such tragedy, a person familiar with the investigation said. If confirmed, that would make it the fourth since 2013, bringing deaths in those crashes to 554. So as aircraft become more reliable and pilots grow less susceptible to errors, fatalities caused by murder-suicides are becoming an increasingly large share of the total. While intentional acts traditionally aren’t included in air-crash statistics, they would be the second-largest category of deaths worldwide if they were, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. By comparison, 1,745 people died as a result of pilot error, mechanical failures or other causes on Western-built jets from 2012 through 2021. “It’s scary,” said Malcolm Brenner, a former human-behavior investigator with the US National Transportation Safety Board who worked on the probe of the 1999 EgyptAir Flight 990 crash, which was found to be an intentional act. “It is a major cause of concern. It’s one the industry needs to address.” So far, however, these rare but deadly acts have defied simple solutions. While improving mental-health care is a priority, those who have chosen to kill themselves and scores of others at the same time on jetliners mostly didn’t reveal any clues beforehand to coworkers, friends or family. And because of the taboo nature of suicide, the cases create unique political and cultural challenges, at times leaving such events shrouded in mystery or open to dispute. The probe into Malaysia Airlines Flight 370’s disappearance over the Indian Ocean in 2014 found it was likely flown there on purpose, for example, but the Malaysian government’s report contains no information on who may have done so or why. The risk of dying on an airliner has declined significantly in recent decades as a result of innovations in safety equipment, aircraft reliability and pilot training. After 5,005 people died on Western-built jets from 2001 through 2010, the total fell to 1,858 the next decade, according to data compiled by Boeing Co., AviationSafetyNetwork and accident reports. The odds of being on a plane involved in a fatal accident was about one in 10 million, according to Boeing. But deaths attributed to pilot suicides bucked that trend, actually moving upward, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. If the China Eastern crash is confirmed as the latest such suicide, it will mean that deaths due to intentional acts have exceeded all other causes since the start of 2021. So far, Chinese authorities have revealed few specifics about what led the China Eastern jet carrying 132 people to crash March 21. The flight, a Boeing 737-800 from Kunming to Guangzhou, was cruising at about 29,000 feet when it suddenly dove at high speed, according to Flightradar24 data. Surveillance videos show it hurtling nose-down toward the ground.  Government authorities and Boeing haven’t announced any potential safety issues with the plane since then, suggesting no systemic faults have been uncovered. Preliminary information from the jet’s crash-proof data recorder indicates that someone in the cockpit initiated the dive, said a person familiar with the probe who wasn’t authorized to speak about it. The likelihood the crash was intentional was earlier reported by the trade publication Leeham News and Analysis as well as the Wall Street Journal. China’s embassy in Washington didn’t respond directly to questions about whether the crash was intentional. Investigators are conducting the probe “in a science-based, meticulous and orderly manner” and will release information “in a timely and accurate fashion,” the embassy said in an email. As with any crash investigation, it can take months or years to conduct the tests and analysis needed to pinpoint a cause and rule out even the most remotely possible system failures. In addition to the Malaysian plane lost with 239 people aboard, a Lam-Mozambique Airlines jet with 33 people went down in Namibia in 2013 after the captain locked the copilot out of the cockpit. In 2015, a Germanwings GmbH copilot also locked out the captain before slamming into the side of a mountain in France with 150 aboard. Four other intentional crashes occurred on airlines around the world prior to 2013, killing another 389 people, according to AviationSafetyNetwork and accident reports. The incidents don’t include terrorist acts, such as the planes that crashed on Sept. 11, 2001.  After the Germanwing
Arizona DPS State Trooper Flight Medic Michael Allen AKA Helicopter_Trunk_Monkey Welcome to episode 42 of the Hangar Z Podcast. In this episode we sit down and chat with Arizona Department of Public Safety State Trooper Flight Medic Michael Allen. Michael began his public safety career as a firefighter.  During his fire service career, he rose to the rank of captain and became an expert in all things rescue.  Like most of us Michael had a dream to be involved in aviation. To pursue his dream, he left the fire service and joined Arizona DPS to join their air rescue unit as a flight medic. Through hard work and dedication, he accomplished his dream and now serves the citizens of Arizona as a state trooper paramedic assigned to the air rescue unit. During our conversation he talks about both his career in the fire service as well as his career as a state trooper paramedic with Arizona DPS.  He also talks about the growth of their aviation program and the unique opportunities it will present to those who want to join their air rescue program.

Ep 129 Travis Landry - Paramotor podcast Want to learn to fly Paramotors? http://www.ParamotorArkansas.com
E129 -Travis Landry- I was born and raised in Austin Tx. I'm 35, and currently own a welding business with my brother as a primary income. I am an electrician, musician, skateboarder, motorcyclist, artist, and many other things. I began paramotoring in March of 2019. Quickly began helping Ron teach kiting, flew over 300 times in my first year, got a PPG3 rating, and began an apprenticeship as an instructor. Currently I have helped train over 150 students and hold instructor ratings, and tandem exemptions thru the USPPA and ASC. The emotional intensity of launching and landing a student on their first few flights is a rush like no other. As instructors, we live for those reactions, and the variety of emotions that pour from the students in these precious moments. I was influenced in aviation by my grandfather who flew B17's in ww2, as well as my uncle that flew huey's in Vietnam, also another uncle who was an avid ultralight pilot. We used to go to airshows and since I could remember I've always wanted to fly, but the dream seemed too grand. As of today, I am the only one of my generation in the family to fly any craft. I truly never expected to become a teacher of anything, and somehow it found me anyway. I'm unbelievably grateful to have been pulled into this community. I'd say it saved me, when I didn't know I needed saving. The people are truly everything in this sport! Currently I'm awaiting a student pilot's license in the mail and plan to fly fixed wing as well as butt fans! I'm extremely lucky to have a friend who is teaching me to fly a plane out of our home airport. I'm here to share the dream and the flying love with anyone who will listen to me. This sport changes lives, attitudes, and perspectives, for many, forever!

Drone News: Dragan Fly Heavy Lift, Wing's larger drones, DJI Lobbies against ASDA, Man caught flying contraband, one year of PI stickers In this week's drone news; DraganFly has released a drone with a 66lb payload and a 55-minute endurance, Wing is creating a fleet of larger drones to carry different items, DJI is lobbying against the American Security Drone Act, a man was caught trying to fly contraband into a prison, and one year of Pilot Institute's Free stickers!

DraganFly has introduced a cargo drone with a payload of 66lbs and a range of 19 miles.
The heavy lift drone uses LTE for fully autonomous flights with an up to 55-minute endurance.
In addition to package delivery, the heavy lift can be equipped with a new long-range LIDAR unit to map large areas.
https://dronexl.co/2022/07/13/draganfly-heavy-lift-cargo-drone/

On the topic of larger drones, Alphabet’s Wing is expanding the size of its drones.
“Just as the ideal vehicle for carrying a ton of gravel would be a dump truck rather than a sedan, the ideal aircraft to carry a bottle of medication is not the same as the best one to deliver a gallon of milk, and neither is suited to deliver a refrigerator,” Wing CEO Adam Woodworth.
https://dronexl.co/2022/07/19/contraband-heavy-duty-drone-texas-prison/

DJI has hired lobbying firms in an attempt to persuade congress not to back the American Security Drone Act.
This would prohibit the government from buying drones made by Chinese firms or other companies that could be a national security risk
DJI is already on the Entity list and on the Chinese Military-industrial complex list.
https://archive.ph/Ijb8J

A Texas man was arrested in Houston after trying to use a heavy lift drone to drop a bag of contraband into a prison.
The contraband included wire cutters, money, smartphones, and tobacco.
Charges agains the man included two counts of improperly flying and aircraft, each carrying up to 3 years in prison.

Episode 174- Dreaming Big, Going Bigger in Pakistan with Aaron Durogati Can you imagine???



Aaron Durogati is no stranger to thinking and doing big, but this time he pulled off what can only be described as outrageous. He and a few friends spent 40 days in the Himalaya in Pakistan to pursue mountaineering &#8220;combos&#8221;. They used their paragliders to take off from lower elevations, put their touring gear (ie skis) on in the air, stuff it in somewhere high, often above 5,000 meters and then ski and fly down. They spent many nights at altitude acclimatizing; they got stuck with heinous walks out on dangerous glaciers; Aaron had a frightening crash; he got so sick he thought he was going to die&#8230;and then he somehow managed to fly at 285 km FAI triangle across the biggest terrain in the world, and then two days later went even bigger and went 312 km! This is Aaron&#8217;s remarkable story. Hold on tight.





Watch a short film of Aaron&#8217;s remarkable 312 km FAI flight and footage of one of his fly/ski &#8220;combos&#8221;:
Episode 175- Behind the scenes of the 22′ X-Pyr Pierre reached goal in 3rd place in the X-Pyr 2022



Manu Bonte returns to the Mayhem to take us into the French team of Pierre Rémy. Pierre is of course one of the most accomplished competition pilots in the world (he&#8217;s currently ranked 6th in the WPRS) but this was his first foray into the craziness of hike and fly racing. The 2022 X-Pyr was substantially longer than any of the previous races with a big tweak to the route, and the weather this year was downright brutal. You had to be an animal on the ground, but it was in the air, and often in really scary air that we saw the true aviators make their moves. Manu was Pierre&#8217;s weather and route-strategy ace and not only did their team hold in up at the front for the entire race, Pierre was the only bird in the sky late on day 6 (when the forecast called for winds in excess of 70 km/hr) when he took a commanding lead. But once again Chrigel pulled his magic and nipped both Pierre and Maxime, who looked like he had the win in the bag right at the last moment. Manu&#8217;s description of that final day and what went down in the X-Pyr and how Chrigel continues to outflank the best in the world is absolutely gripping. Enjoy!





Show Notes:



* Manu recounts Pierre&#8217;s background * Manu discusses the extremes the top athletes are willing to fly in* We discuss Pierre&#8217;s &#8220;magic&#8221; move on day 6 to take the lead and one of Chrigel&#8217;s rare mistakes* Making your own decisions* The super-human ground game required* Manu discusses the team and the dynamics* Things they got right, things they got wrong* Luck vs skill* The gear- Niviuk Klimber 2P, Kortel Kolibri Pro* Are the X-Alps next? * The training required* Giving advice where you don&#8217;t pay the mistake yourself.

A Meridian An-12BK crashes in Greece. And airports in Europe continue to cut flights as airlines figure out what to do next.
Farnborough Airshow
The biggest orders weren&#8217;t the biggest news at this year’s Farnborough Airshow. Delta’s order for 100 + 30 737-10 MAX was the largest at a show that saw just over half the number of orders as Paris 2019 and the lowest number of orders at at Farnborough in at least a decade. But there was plenty of other news, including Airbus and CFM’s announcement that CFM’s RISE open rotor engine will fly on an A380 demonstrator aircraft in the second half of the decade. Airbus also announced its Blue Condor hydrogen test flight campaign using a modified Arcus-J jet sailplane. Those test flights began this week. And supersonic hopeful Boom unveiled its redesigned aircraft now with four engines. But most importantly, it also announced a partnership with Northrop Grumman, which changes Ian’s perspective of Boom’s prospects slightly.
Melting runways
London experienced its highest-ever temperatures this week, topping 40℃ for the first time ever. At Luton Airport, the heat lead to ‘runway defects’ — the tar in the asphalt melted.
Meridian An-12BK crashes in Greece
A Meridian An-12BK en route from Niš to Amman crashed near Kavala, Greece, after reporting engine trouble and turning back over the Aegean Sea.
Airports further reduce flights
Frankfurt cuts more flights, Heathrow is threatening legal action against airlines unless they cut passenger numbers, and Amsterdam’s troubles are rolling right along.
ICAO issues Ryanair 4978 report
ICAO’s Fact Finding Investigation issued its report on the forced diversion of Ryanair 4978, concluding that Belarusian authorities were responsible for the diversion of the aircraft. Read the full report.
SAS strike ends
SAS and its pilots reached an agreement after a 15 day strike as the airline moves through the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process.
iMac in the exit row
A passenger on a United Airlines flight last week had a bit more computing power than we’re used to seeing on board an aircraft.

Air Canada 787 Pilot Talks Aero HygenX and Autonomous Aircraft Disinfection On this episode of the Connected Aviation Intelligence Podcast, JP Floyd, Air Canada 787 Pilot and Senior Director of Compliance and Standards for Aero HygenX, joins to discuss autonomous aircraft disinfection technology.
Aero HygenX, is a Canadian tech start-up founded by pilots and experts in aircraft maintenance. The company has developed an autonomous robot called "Ray" that uses UV-C technology and motion-sensors to self-navigate the aircraft cabin while disinfecting air and surfaces throughout. Several airlines including Avelo, Ethiopian Airlines and Zambia Airways have adopted their robot disinfection technology.
Floyd also provides some perspective on some of the challenges of flying throughout the pandemic over the last two years as well as some of the goals Aero HygenX wants to achieve with its disinfection technology.

Shift5 CGO Talks Developing an Aircraft Networking Security Program Michael Weigand is the chief growth officer of Shift5 Inc., a startup firm providing cybersecurity services across commercial and military segments of aviation, rail and other forms of transportation. 
Weigand is a former U.S. Army cyber officer who co-founded Shift5 in 2019. During his live presentation given at the 2022 Connected Aviation Intelligence Summit, Weigand gives an in-depth technical overview of how connected aircraft systems work, why they’re vulnerable how airlines can develop an Aircraft Network Security Program. 
The FAA first established its Aircraft Network Security Program in 2015 as an Advisory Circular for airlines that operate aircraft featuring connectivity. Weigand goes well beyond explaining how airlines can develop an ANSP into giving a detailed explanation as to how specific aircraft computers and data bus networks function, and why he believes there is no such thing as an “un-connected” aircraft for airlines anymore even with those that do not specifically feature passenger-facing connectivity onboard. 
Below is an interesting observation given by Weigand during the presentation:
“I want to suggest that the industry not focus on the infotainment and passenger connectivity systems as the primary cyber threat to the aircraft. Candidly, from a security professional’s perspective I don’t care that the passengers don’t have Wi-Fi, because that system was degraded by a malicious actor. We care about flight safety first and foremost, it’s really the flight deck, it’s the green side of the aircraft that the conversation needs to be focused on, and I think previous security research done initially by the hacking and academia community has kind of mislead the industry to talk about what’s going on in the cabin and not in the flight deck.”

SMS and a Wendy's Napkin - Don't Over Complicate Taking a look at the big picture takes SMS (Safety Management System) beyond the paper and becomes a culture, our guest Tim Wade, Director of Environmental, Health, & Safety, at Constant Aviation takes us through their experience of becoming one of the first MRO's to be recognized by the FAA as having a single and integrated SMS and why it's working. Tim hits the high points of what makes a good SMS and how it needs to fit the people, not making the people fit the paper. Change the way people think and don't add extra work that doesn't make sense.
Tim and the team at Constant are always available to help out the aviation industry and are very generous with their time and expertise. Be sure and reach out if you have questions. Tim did point out that he isn't sure about the safety regulations in the ag industry, so Andy is probably alone in dealing with his goats.
