    Retired pilot retraces path of historic transcontinental flight
    Montreal Gazette
    When retired Air Canada pilot Christopher Brown was an infant in a crib, his father brought a flight-instrument panel simulator into the nursery. According to dad, baby Brown was fascinated by the lights and levers. And so a passion for flying was born. Now at age 70 Brown, who lives in Dorval, Quebec, has 40 years and 19,000 hours of flying experience under his belt. Recently, he took off in a Beechcraft Bonanza light aircraft he calls Arcadia to retrace the transcontinental flight path established in Canada 75 years ago.

    Critics: Liberals' aviation fuel tax hike will hurt Ontarians
    Canoe
    Finance Minister Charles Sousa's 148 percent hike in the tax on aviation fuel has been largely flying under the radar since his May budget and the June election. It was a sneak attack on an industry that's vital to this province. It's a punitive tax that will slap every airline passenger with higher costs. At least one airline — Sunwing — has said it will operate two of its flights out of Buffalo largely to avoid the increased costs. Sunwing is one of the top five carriers in Ontario.

    Airman returns home to British Columbia, 70 years after plane shot down
    The Vancouver Sun
    The B-26 Marauder bomber, hit by anti-aircraft fire, turned toward the safety of Belgium and France — and then it disappeared for more than 60 years. Now, thanks to a combination of a lucky find, detective work and modern DNA techniques, the families of the six crew members of the plane nicknamed Hunconscious are planning funerals with military honours. One of the crew — Eric Mitchell Honeyman, 21, a cousin I never knew — will be interred at a scenic mountain cemetery between Trail and Rossland, with a colour guard from the U.S. army and a 21-gun salute.

    Retired RCAF pilot celebrates 75th birthday with flight
    Cambridge Times
    It was up, up and away for a Cambridge, Ontario, retired pilot, Lt. Col. Ronald Gowing, as the plane climbed to about 3,000 feet to celebrate his 75th birthday. It was the first time in 10 years that Gowing had taken over the controls to fly an aircraft. The NATO veteran of the Cold War in Europe was accompanied on the flight by Aart Van Leiveld, a flying instructor at the Waterloo-Wellington Flight Centre, located at the Waterloo Region International Airport.

    Aviation enthusiasts get chance to fly with 1 of world's 2 remaining Canadian Lancaster bombers
    Daily Mail
    Two weeks after an air show appearance was canceled due to engine problem, one of the last two remaining airworthy Canadian World War Two Lancaster bombers is up and running and set to make further appearances. The Lancaster, currently on a U.K. tour, suffered mechanical issues ahead of the Bournemouth Air Festival in August and engineers had to replace an engine, incurring huge costs and cancellations of appearances around the country. But now, Action Stations, the company who arrange for flight fans to fly along side the Lancaster — and with the Canadian Warplane Museum — will run extra flights, allowing aviation enthusiasts the chance to see her fly from the sky once more.

    Keeping up the family tradition
    The Battlefords News-Optimist
    The other day, just before going to bed, our 10-year-old daughter Katrina came into my office. "Dad, there's something important I have to tell you," she said, a serious tone in her voice. Settling into my chair, I wonder, is this about conflicts in school? The war in Ukraine? "What?" I ask. "Dad, when I'm 12, I want to join air cadets. I want to quit Girl Guides and join air cadets."

    Windsorite
    Transport Canada has released information about a recent incident over the skies of Windsor where a small private plane cruising over the city did not respond to numerous instructions by Windsor Airport's air traffic controllers in Ontario. In a preliminary report published recently, Transport Canada noted they received information from air traffic controllers at Nav Canada that a privately registered, single engine Piper PA-28R-200 propeller plane did not respond to numerous air traffic control requests while a WestJet Boeing 737 was approaching to land.

    Prentice still hoping airship dreams will fly
    Winnipeg Free Press
    There are no cargo airships flying into northern Manitoba these days. But there is a research entity and a for-profit company called Buoyant Aircraft Systems International that is developing airship technologies. Both are the brainchild of Barry Prentice, the University of Manitoba logistics and transportation expert, whose passion to see the development of massive airships that can haul tonnes of cargo to the Canadian North at very low cost with little environmental impact is undaunted, even though many believe it's futile.

    The 1st arctic flight — in 1914
    Air & Space
    Aviation's first decade coincided with another great adventure — a race, almost a frenzy, to reach the poles of the Earth. It was natural for balloons, airships, and eventually airplanes to be part of that quest, but as of 1914, no one had yet managed to fly an airplane in the stormy, frigid conditions above the Arctic Circle. In April of that year, Robert Peary, who had reached the North Pole — or very close to it — in 1909, could only speculate that aerial trips to the far north "will be simple matters of course in five years' time."

    Listen to a pilot with hypoxia, guided by ATC, safely land a learjet
    Gizmodo
    According to author Logan Booker: Commercial airliners — and other high-altitude craft — are pressurised for a reason; along with it being a fair bit colder up there, there's less oxygen for us to breathe. Above 10,000 feet, it doesn't take long for a condition known as hypoxia, or oxygen deprivation, to set in, causing a range of symptoms that replicate intoxication.
