    Burlington Airpark (CZBA) announces no further legal appeals
    By Kevin Psutka, COPA president and CEO
    Earlier this year, COPA reported on a court decision against the airpark, giving the city control over certain development at the airpark, including the altering of the site to accommodate an expansion.
    COPA financially supported — with our Freedom to Fly Fund — an appeal of the decision because of the potential for significant damage to the concept of federal jurisdiction. The appeal was heard on June 11. Unfortunately, the Court of Appeal upheld the lower court decision.

    By Garth Wallace

    COPA
    According to authors By Michel Moreau and Leo Nikkinen: Again this year the traditional June fly-in breakfast organized by COPA chapter 43 at the St. Lazare airport, CST3, in Quebec was a great success. Sixty-five aircraft visited us and we served 875 breakfasts. We were almost victims of our own success; at times the waiting line was very long, and the sun was very strong!

    Hey! Why's the horizon over there?
    AVweb
    It's happened to every pilot at some time or another — suddenly the airplane isn't doing what the pilot intends. Causes vary — his or her attention is diverted while hand flying, or spatial disorientation does its insidious thing or maybe its an upset due to turbulence. The deviation from the desired attitude can range from "Aw, nuts, I let the wing drop a bit," to "Holy smoke! Which way is up?"

    Smithsonian showcases 3-D Wright Flyer exhibit
    FLYING
    A new 3-D display of the Wright Flyer, credited as the airplane that achieved the first powered flight in December 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, has been added to the downtown Washington, D.C., campus of the Smithsonian Institution. The Wright Flyer was scanned using a 3-D laser, which produces a highly detailed and accurate image of the object. From that scan, a company called API Services created the 3-D model.
