Tells Students that Next Aircraft Will be Memorial to Lost Aviators

The largest aircraft in the world, recently destroyed, may be returning sooner than originally expected, if off-the-cuff remarks made by the Ukrainian head of state are any indication. For a brief time, it appeared that the legendary An-225 could be built at a discount, as Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky made mention of an $800 million price tag for the aircraft’s successor. Those who remember the vow made by Ukrainian aerospace corporation Ukroboronprom in February would recall a much higher price tag at the time: $3 billion, to start.

A model-C Ercoupe, N26R, owned and operated by Jessica Cox of ‘RightFooted International’  and motivational documentary ‘RightFooted’, was almost destroyed in the brief minutes it sat on the ramp at the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York. The source of the destructive force was a business jet performing a 360-degree turn in the vicinity of the Ercoupe. Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner is FINALLY in orbit, heading for the International Space Station following the launch Thursday of the next-generation spacecraft on a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket on a mission designed to test the end-to-end capabilities of the crew-capable system as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.

The Bob Hoover Legacy Foundation, established by the late Bob Hoover and his closest friends, is pushing past the woes of the pandemic and announcing new leadership as well as an aggressive new set of priorities… with more to come. Prior to his passing, Bob formed the Bob Hoover Legacy Foundation. He did so for one purpose: to contribute to the growth and betterment of aviation in perpetuity. ANN CEO, Jim Campbell, will again serve as the BHLF Executive Director, as well as taking a seat on the Foundation’s board. The fate of the East Hampton airport (HTO), some 40nm west of the Long Island Mac Arthur airport, is not yet sealed as NBAA and other stakeholders have filed motions in the local district court to delay its closure and seen some temporary success.

For some time, Republic Airways has enjoyed a not so favorable opinion in the “Low Time” flying community due to reports of it allegedly engaging in second-in-command (SIC) operations on its single-pilot fleet, and those SIC’s later discovering that their ‘logged time’ is invalid and cannot be applied to flight experience for their Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) rating. Well, those woes may soon come to an end if Republic Airways gets its way. “Where’s the ground?

Taylor Bye, an A-10C Thunderbolt II pilot assigned to the 23rd Wing at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, this question blared through her mind when she faced a looming crisis during a routine training sortie two years ago. The experience tested
