Essential Unpredictability: Analyzing the 2020 AEA Rate & Labor Survey
Peering through the fog of unpredictability rising from the pandemic of COVID-19, the only nationwide consensus seems to be the significant change in what avionics repair stations expect their business to do in the coming year.

Scott Spangler analyzes the results from this year's AEA Rate & Labor Survey in the December issue of Avionics News. More...
Aviation Groups Call for Halt of FCC Spectrum Auction Affecting Radar Altimeters
On Dec. 7, a group of 15 aviation associations, including the AEA, sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission expressing concern over frequency spectrum relocation affecting radar altimeters, a critical flight safety tool. The group requested that the FCC suspend Auction 107, scheduled to begin Dec. 8, which offers new flexible‐use overlay licenses for spectrum in the 3.7–3.98 GHz band, in order to resolve likely interference issues with radar altimeters prior to the auction.

“Since 2017, the aviation industry has consistently noted during the Federal Communications Commission rulemaking process that deployment of 5G networks in this frequency band may introduce harmful radio frequency interference to radar altimeters currently operating in the globally-allocated 4.2–4.4 GHz aeronautical band,” the group wrote. “Radar altimeters are deployed on tens of thousands of civil aircraft in the United States and worldwide to support several critical safety-of-life aircraft functions throughout multiple phases of flight. Radar altimeters are the only sensor onboard a civil aircraft which provides a direct measurement of the clearance height of the aircraft over the terrain or other obstacles.” More...
Podcast: The Making of a Third-Generation Aviator
Mac and David Copeland share their family’s unique aviation history in this episode of AEA Amplified. Mac is following in big family footsteps as a third-generation pilot. He recently completed his first solo while attending college and working toward his private pilot certificate. His father, David, is the vice president of sales for Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics. And his grandparents, John and Marilyn, operated an airport, one that felt more like home than the house. With links to Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart, listen to the Copeland family’s incredible aviation story.

SKYTRAC Systems Introduces Certus Connectivity LRUs for Aircraft
Based in Kelowna, British Columbia, SKYTRAC has been a full-service, data-driven solutions provider for private, business, commercial, and military aviation since 1986. Today, its systems are certified on more than 900 airframes with over 7,500-plus users around the globe.

This past September, Iridium Communications announced that it appointed SKYTRAC as its newest aviation value-added manufacturer for the company’s Iridium Certus family of transceivers.

“We have always developed capabilities and services for aircraft operators ranging from satellite tracking and flight-following to voice communications, messaging and other capabilities,” stated Jan Van der Heul, SKYTRAC’s vice president of sales. “Using the combination of satellite communications and SKYTRAC’s capabilities in-flight, we can help operators use their aircraft more efficiently, whether it’s for real-time positioning, messaging, or transferring of critical aircraft performance data.” More...
The STC Group Brings Crossover Autopilot to Vintage GA Aircraft
This summer, The STC Group of Oxnard, California, near Los Angeles, added the Piper PA-32 Cherokee Six to its Federal Aviation Administration approved model list STC for the Trio Avionics Pro Pilot autopilot. The Trio autopilot is another example of how instruments and avionics in the experimental aircraft market are crossing over to FAA-certified aircraft, bringing affordability and full-featured capabilities.

The STC Group was created in 2016 for that purpose – to translate Trio Avionics’ non-TSO’d autopilots for installation in certificated aircraft. Along with providing the engineering, The STC Group sells Trio autopilots and the installation hardware directly to owner-operators.

Based at Gillespie Field in El Cajon, California, near San Diego, Trio Avionics has been building autopilots for experimental aircraft for more than a decade and has over 3,000 units flying on experimental aircraft. More...
Owner Maintenance: An Opportunity to Win Customers for Your Shop
When the aircraft owner approaches an A&P about helping with some work, it's only fair to point out that helping them takes the technician away from paying work – and that another owner/pilot expects that work to be performed, on-time, on-budget, and next. The benefit to the maintainer is the opportunity to cement a mechanic-customer relationship for all those other jobs and other times when that licensed technician will be required for the work needed.

But following the information within 43.3(g) and AC 20-106 can help that owner/pilot learn and understand more about the owned aircraft and why the A&P is a pilot’s best friend when work is required beyond that authorized by the FAA for the owner to tackle. More...
Aviation Industry Urges Inclusion of the PARTT 147 Act in the Aircraft Certification Reform Act
The AEA recently joined more than 20 aviation groups urging congressional leaders to support the Promoting Aviation Regulations for Technical Training (PARTT) 147 Act (S.3043/H.R.5427). The bill would mandate Federal Aviation Administration regulatory reform of aviation technician education, empower innovative curriculum development, and reinforce a workforce pipeline that will be vital to a strong, post-pandemic recovery.

“The aviation industry relies heavily on its technical workforce. Aviation maintenance schools governed by Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 147 produce the vast majority of certificated mechanics. Efficient and effective Part 147 programs are therefore a vital piece of the industry’s technical personnel pipeline." More...
View from Washington: It’s Déjà Vu All Over Again
To quote Yogi Berra, a New York Yankees Hall of Famer, “It’s déjà vu all over again.” Lately, I keep having these feelings of having already experienced the present situation. Or more accurately, the more I study, the more I see us repeating the past, which includes the title of this month’s column that we first used in our December 2011 edition.

As you may know, the Aircraft Electronics Association participates in rulemaking activities on behalf of the membership worldwide, predominately in North America, Western Europe (think European Union Aviation Safety Agency), and in the South Pacific with Australia and New Zealand. There are two major topics we are engaged in as I write this month’s column: safety management systems in Europe and Part 145 in the United States. From the Part 145 perspective, the Federal Aviation Administration tasked the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee to provide recommendations regarding the agency’s guidance on the certification and oversight of all Part 145 repair stations. As a result, the ARAC established a working group to manage this task. The AEA co-chairs this working group along with the Aeronautical Repair Station Association. More...

BizAv’s Commitment to Environment on Display at Virtual 2020 Business Aviation Sustainability Summit
In September, business aircraft operators, fuel suppliers, fixed-base operators, and legislators highlighted the industry’s commitment to the environment at the first virtual Business Aviation Sustainability Summit.

Business aviation accounts for less than 2% of all aviation carbon dioxide emissions and about .04% of global man-made emissions.
