Ontario airport plan addresses noise complaints, but some neighbours don't like it
Peterborough Examiner
There's a plan taking shape to alleviate noise concerns in the area around the Peterborough Airport in Ontario. But a meeting held recently to gather public input on the idea was met with disapproval by many of the airport's neighbours, who are fed up with ongoing noise. The expanded airport, which added the Seneca College flight school to its 19 on-site aeronatic businesses, has 65,000 "air traffic movements," or flights, per year. That can mean a flight taking off or landing every 30 to 90 seconds, and the accompanying noise.

My stunt ride in a Chinese warbird
The Columbia Valley Pioneer
According to author Kevin Nimmock: I had never skydived, I had never bungee jumped and I had never paraglided. All this considered, I somehow found myself strapping on a 20-pound fire retardant suit and a cloth helmet fit for a 1950s air combat fighter. On August 17th, I participated in media day activities for the Canadian Rockies International Airshow, which is coming to Cranbrook on Aug. 5, 2016. Media day's main event: flying in a plane alongside one of six of the best air show pilots in North America. I had no idea what to expect.

Regional airport is busiest training centre in Ontario
Waterloo Record
For John Dabu, there's nothing quite like the thrill of being in command of your own airplane. Dabu, 21, got the travel bug as a young violinist, traveling to different musical competitions. The excitement of being in the airport and in a plane, flying off to new places, has never left him, but being able to actually fly the plane is another experience altogether. "You get to control the plane, and feel what it's doing. It's definitely a lot better than being a passenger," he said.

The ride: Flying 1st timers and your family
AVweb
According to author Rick Durden: In discussions with new pilots at airports and on aviation forums, two of the recurring questions I get are how to give a good ride to someone who has never been in an airplane before and how come the spouses and families of a fair percentage of pilots don't like to, or simply won't, fly with them. There has been research on both issues, and it boils down to showing respect for your passengers while keeping the flight as smooth as possible.

Showtime for e-planes
Air & Space Magazine
On July 10, an airplane powered by electricity, the Airbus E-Fan, took off from Lydd, England, accompanied by a camera-equipped chase plane. It landed less than an hour later in Calais, France, to kick off a press conference where the company better known for its gas-burning airliners was prepared to claim that it had made the first battery-powered flight across the English Channel. But just 24 hours earlier, a competitor was preparing to beat Airbus. French stunt pilot Hugues Duval packed himself into a Cri-Cri, one of the smallest airplanes ever built, and cranked up its two battery-driven propellers.

Brazilians claim 4-cylinder records
AVweb
A team of students and their professor from a Brazilian university say they've set five new records for an aircraft powered by a four-cylinder engine. Anequim (Portuguese for Mako shark) went 323 mph over a 3-kilometer course. That's 33 mph faster than Jon Sharp's Nemesis, the current record holder, which was the undisputed champion in its class at the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada.

Wall of Honor gives pilots a reason to go flying
General Aviation News
"We are trying to give pilots a reason to go flying," said Rainier Flight Service founder Gordon Alvord. "This goes beyond the $100 hamburger or a flight lesson." Using custom built flight scheduling software, the system takes advantage of the rise of social media to encourage pilots to earn profile badges on their Wall of Honor. To date, a Rainier Flight Service pilot can earn one (and hopefully more) of 56 badges.
