King Schools took some time at the Sun 'n Fun Aerospace Expo to award an annual scholarship to a deserving pilot working their wa up the ladder. The Diamond DA40 NG is a strong contender to become the technologically advanced plane of choice for flight schools -- ANN's Jim Campbell filed this interview right before flight-checking out its twin-engine big brother, the DA62.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (04.17.21): Contaminated Runway

Sun, 2021-04-18 22:59
Contaminated Runway A runway is considered contaminated whenever standing water, ice, snow, slush, frost in any form, heavy rubber, or other substances are present. A runway is contaminated with respect to rubber deposits or other friction-degrading substances when the average friction value for any 500-foot segment of the runway within the ALD fails below the recommended minimum friction level and the average friction value in the adjacent 500-foot segments falls below the maintenance planning friction level.

After surviving the brutal certification process for both the airplane as well as the production program, speedy Epic single-engine turbo-props are rolling out the door in Oregon at an increasing rate.

Also: Rhode Island--DroneUp, Vertical Flight Society, Rocket Lab, Sun ‘n Fun Digital Daily On Tuesday, March 30, SpaceX launched its fourth high-altitude flight test of Starship from Starbase in Texas. Similar to previous high-altitude flight tests, Starship Serial Number 11 (SN11) was powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee – approximately 10 km in altitude. SN11 performed a propellant transition to the internal header tanks, which hold landing propellant, before reorienting itself for reentry and a controlled aerodynamic descent. Shortly after the landing burn started, SN11 experienced a rapid unscheduled disassembly. Now we know why... Lilium GmbH has entered into a business agreement with Qell Acquisition Corp. Upon closing of the transaction, the company will be called Lilium. In concert with the business news, Lilium is talking up their 7 seat Lilium Jet program. The Lilium 7-Seater Jet has a projected cruise speed of 175 mph at 10,000 feet and a range of 155+ miles, including reserves. It is the culmination of five years of technology development across four generations of technology demonstrators, including Lilium’s full-scale 5-Seater. Pipistrel has selected Honeywell's next-generation Attitude Heading Reference System and Air Data Module for its Nuuva V300 cargo UAV. The technologies provide critical navigation and motion-sensing data and will work in tandem with Honeywell's Compact Fly-By-Wire system onboard the aircraft.
