    Push to save Nova Scotia airport continues
    Halifax Herald News
    The Annapolis Valley Flying Association is appealing to Kings County council in Nova Scotia to delay closing Waterville Municipal Airport. "The airport is not just a piece of pavement and a bunch of buildings that sit in the way of industrial expansion," association spokeswoman Nancy Sweeney said. "The airport has meaning...value...history," Sweeney said in an open letter in which she urges council to revisit its decision to close the airport Sept. 30 to make way for rumoured expansion at Michelin's Waterville plant.

    Flying Freya
    Shetland News
    A young Shetland, Scotland, flying enthusiast has secured a bursary from the Fresson Trust in support of her training for the commercial pilot's licence. Freya Inkster, from Bridge End in Burra, is taking flying lessons at the Langley Flying School in British Columbia, Canada. The 19 year old Inkster said she was extremely grateful to the trust for helping towards the cost of her studies. "I am using the bursary to get my night rating, which I am really enjoying.

    Cool-headed pilot had never jumped before day his plane crashed
    The Huffington Post
    Pilot Shawn Kinmartin spent his days flying people who elect to jump out of an airplane, but he'd never taken the plunge himself. That all changed on the day his plane went down. Kinmartin, 21, flies for the Fly Free Skydiving in Festus, Missouri. His heart-pounding incident took place during a run near the state's border with Illinois. He was flying at about 11,500 feet when the run's last skydiver accidentally hit and damaged the plane's elevation mechanism while jumping out, according to CNN.

    Prince William shouldn't scratch his piloting itch
    By Mark Huber
    It's been a year since Britain's Prince William walked away from the cockpit, piloting search-and-rescue missions in Sikorsky Sea King helicopters for the Royal Air Force. Now, after experiencing fatherhood and a year of global "grip and grin" goodwill tours on behalf of the monarchy, William has decided he is not quite ready for the life of a full-time figurehead in the fish bowl. Recently, his minions "let slip" that the prince is itching to get back in the cockpit. It's a noble idea as well as a potentially fatal one.
