    Waterville Airport update from the Hangar Owner Group
    COPA
    We are a group of pilots who own hangars at the Waterville municipal airport. We have invested considerable money in aircraft hangars at the Waterville airport over the past 15 years.

    The hangar owners have a relationship of tenant/landlord with the Waterville Airport Co-operative (WACL) and the Municipality of Kings (MoK).

    The lease/management agreement between the WACL and the MoK does not expire until the fall of 2015 or early 2016, depending on the interpretation of the leases in question. On March 10 the county council voted to close the Waterville Airport effective Sept. 30, fully a year before the lease/management agreement between the two groups expires.

    Our hangar owner group is in fundamental disagreement with the MoK and council over closing the airport prior to the expiration of its management agreement with WACL.

    Aviation innovation: Solar powered aeroplanes and silicone wings
    The Guardian
    When birds land, their wings adjust to the airstreams, allowing them to spend as little energy as possible. By contrast, aeroplanes use clunky landing flaps that help channel the air but also waste large amounts of energy. A research team, financed by the EU, has developed a new material that allows aeroplane wings to function more like birds' wings.

    Are fixed-wing aircraft the right fix for patient transport?
    By Mark Huber
    While there will always be a need for helicopter EMS, particularly in urban areas, the industry is increasingly looking at fixed-wing solutions as cost pressures mount. While hospital-based programs still use helicopters to corral market share, fixed-wing transport is becoming a more popular option, particularly with doctors and patients who want choices and with cost-cutting insurance companies. Fixed-wing air ambulances are, of course, not a new idea.

    Love of airplanes took Ontario man to new heights
    The Kitchener Record
    On the day of Mancel Waugh's funeral, emotions were already running high but when four vintage Harvard aircraft did a fly over for the man who had meant so much to so many, sobs were audible over the roar of the engines. Mancel had been a volunteer with the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association in Tillsonburg, Ontario, and on the day of his interment, as the pilots flew over Parkview Cemetery one of the planes backed off, shot a stream of white smoke from its tail and veered out of formation.

    Pilot uses stool to make improvised landing on aircraft carrier
    WXIN-TV
    A pilot made an incredible landing after his landing gear malfunctioned. The Marine Corps released video of the impressive feat, which happened on the deck of the USS Bataan. The pilot, Capt. William Mahoney, said the landing gear on his AV-8B Harrier malfunctioned, leaving him no choice but to improvise. A colleague in the tower suggested that Mahoney put the plane's nose down on the stool. The pilot couldn't see the stool as he descended, but made it work.
