Rally celebrates new small aircraft certification law
The Wichita Eagle
A new law that aims to streamline certification for small aircraft will make it faster and less expensive to get new products to market — and that will mean jobs for south-central Kansas, industry leaders said at an aviation rally. A rally to celebrate the passage of the Small Airplane Revitalization Act was attended by industry, city union and government leaders at the Machinists District in south Wichita.

Angel Flight West gives pilots a great reason to fly
Yakima Herald-Republic
Bill Almon and Jason Simpson don't think they're doing anything selfless, using their own money and time to fly very sick people to get treatment. Pilots, as a rule, are always looking for reasons to fly, they say. Plus, helping someone who can't afford commercial air travel — or who can't travel with large groups because of a compromised immune system — as both do through the nonprofit Angel Flight West organization, feels good.

Bird hazard program aids Delaware base aircraft operations
Newszap
A single bird can cause damage to an aircraft and, in a critical phase of flight such as take-off or landing, it can cause an aircraft to go down. This unwanted collision is monitored and managed by the Bird and Wildlife Aircraft Strike Hazard program, which focuses on preventing wildlife-related aircraft mishaps and reducing the potential for wildlife hazards to aircraft operations.

Ice belongs in drinks
By Meredith Saini
Reprinted with permission from FAA Aviation News
The Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM) describes the various types of airframe icing, the conditions under which it can form, and the negative effects it can have on airplane performance. It also offers guidance to pilots on how to give a pilot report (PIREP) on in-flight icing conditions. Depending on where the icing conditions are encountered and at what temperature and altitude, ice can form as clear ice, rime ice (cloudy appearance), or some combination of the two. Ice can form quickly, often in just a few minutes — the time it takes to climb or descend a few thousand feet through a layer of juicy clouds. Unless the aircraft is equipped with some kind of anti-icing or de-icing system, ice can accumulate rapidly on the leading edges of the wings, the horizontal and vertical stabilizers, propeller, and windscreen.
