    Use of lasers letter to Ministers of Transport and Justice
    COPA
    Currently, there are no Canadian laws prohibiting possession of a laser whose output is greater than 5 milliwatts; these lasers pose a risk to eye safety for even incidental exposure. Likewise, Sections 7.41(1)(a) of the Aeronautics Act and 601.20 of the Canadian Aviation Regulations do not specifically address the dangerous practice of pointing a laser at aircraft, an action that has kept increasing exponentially over time.

    ForeFlight launches geo-referenced approach plates for Canada
    COPA
    NAV CANADA has recently taken steps to modernize the Canada Air Pilot and Restricted Canada Air Pilot publications. One of the six key areas of improvement is making all published procedures to scale, which (we are excited to announce) enables us to geo-reference them for ownship display. The new charts are available in-app now as a late-cycle 1406 data update. Current Canada subscribers will see the new, geo-referenced publications automatically replace the old ones as part of the standard data update process.

    2nd Flying Mosquito takes to the sky
    FLYING
    A second flying example of the World War II-era de Havilland Mosquito flew for the first time in 48 years as Reno race pilot Steve Hinton lifted off in the restored bomber from Victoria International Airport on Vancouver Island in far western Canada. The newly completed de Havilland 98 MK.35 is a bomber-only variant, built after the war and put in storage before being modified for civilian duty as an aerial survey platform.

    Regulations amending the Canadian Aviation Regulations (Parts I, II, IV, VI and VII — Private Operators)
    COPA
    COPA provided a detailed explanation of how the proposed rules would negatively impact our sector of aviation (For COPA's letter to Transport Canada click here) (For draft regulation click here). The final rule was not amended to account for COPA's concern.

    The regulation is convoluted, as pointed out by COPA during the development of the revised regulation, in that the applicability paragraph 604.02 captures all large aeroplanes (weighing more than 5700 kg), any turbine powered aircraft (meaning jet and turbo-prop), any pressurized aircraft and any multi-engine aircraft. However, the prohibition paragraph 604.03 narrows the applicability down somewhat by prohibiting operation of certain aircraft unless you obtain a registration document.

    In summary, as of now, if you want to privately fly any one of the following classes of aircraft you need to register as a Private Operator:
    • any large aeroplane (weighing more than 5700 kg)
    • any turbo-jet powered aircraft (does not include turbo-props)
    • a turbine powered aircraft (turbo-jet or turbo prop) that is also pressurized and certificated for more than six passengers.
    Please contact Transport Canada if you have any issues with the direction they have taken.

    10 years since SpaceShipOne made history
    Toronto Star
    On June 21, 2004, Mike Melvill flew an odd-looking craft called SpaceShipOne to the edge of space and successfully returned it to earth. In doing so, Melvill became the first person to pilot a privately-built spaceship — an event that will always stand as an iconic aviation milestone. SpaceShipOne doesn't fly anymore. The unusual-looking aircraft instead has a place of pride at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. Hanging from the ceiling with its nose inclined in a permanent climb, its nearest neighbour is the Spirit of St. Louis, the plane Charles Lindbergh flew solo from New York to Paris in 1927.

    Unfit for publication: How USA TODAY got everything wrong
    The Huffington Post
    According to author Jeff Schweitzer: USA TODAY splashed across its front page the breathless headline, "Unfit for Flight" to dramatize the deadly enterprise of flying general aviation aircraft. We learn in bold print there have been 45,000 deaths attributed to small aircraft and dozens of multimillion-dollar verdicts that reveal lies and coverups. There is only one problem: Nearly every inference about aviation in the article is wrong. Let's put this in perspective statistically. If a private pilot flew 10 hours per week, 52 weeks per year, for 30 years, it would take over five lifetimes to be involved in a fatal accident.

    Will the 'Internet of Things' revolutionize aircraft industry?
    Forbes
    What a difference a century makes. When Thomas Edison was tinkering with electric light bulbs, he could have had no idea how fast things would progress technologically. But from those relatively humble, yet revolutionary, beginnings the company he founded, General Electric, is now harnessing the Internet of Things (IoT) to revolutionize the aerospace industry. By syncing the company's systems with the IoT, enormous amounts of data will be available to track flight data with the goal of reducing fuel costs, shortening travel times and boosting efficiency.

    Widow of B-24 pilot takes ride to experience 'quirky' airplane
    Akron Beacon Journal
    Frances Rohrich got the chance of a lifetime when she and her daughter, Janis Seward, took a ride in the World War II-era B-24 Liberator plane that spent most of its time recently at Akron Fulton International Airport. Rohrich's husband, Eugene, piloted the same planes in the Pacific Theater, and although the B-24 was designed to serve as a bomber, his particular plane was responsible for taking aerial photos of the terrain. "He didn't talk about his missions ever," Seward said. "However, he did talk about flying that plane and how fascinating he found it, how hard it was to fly and how cramped he found it."
