Keeping the general aviation industry connected
New Safety Data Tool Available on FAA.gov Website
The Federal Aviation Administration is making it easier to research aviation safety guidance material from the Office of Aviation Safety. The Dynamic Regulatory System combines more than 65 document types from more than a dozen different repositories into a single searchable application. This comprehensive knowledge center centralizes the FAA’s aviation safety guidance material from the Flight Standards Information System and the agency’s Regulatory Guidance System.

Each guidance document includes a link to the Code of Federal Regulations provision on which the document is based. DRS contains more than 2 million regulatory guidance documents, which can be browsed or searched. A search engine allows for basic or advanced searches and different ways to sort and view the results. The system includes pending and current versions of all documents along with their revision history. Information in the DRS is updated every 24 hours. Link directly to new DRS System at https://drs.faa.gov/browse.
FAA Accepting Applications for Workforce Development Grants
The Federal Aviation Administration is seeking applications for two Aviation Workforce Development Grant programs aimed at developing and inspiring a more inclusive pool of pilots and aviation maintenance technicians to join the next generation of aviation professionals.

The Aviation Maintenance Technical Workers Workforce Development Grants will help prepare a more inclusive talent pool of aviation maintenance technicians. The Aircraft Pilots Workforce Development Grants provide money to expand the pilot workforce and educate students to become pilots, aerospace engineers or unmanned aircraft systems operators. Applicants from academia and the aviation community can submit applications through www.grants.gov through March 22.

Eligible organizations may apply for grants ranging from $25,000 to $500,000 for any single grant per fiscal year. More...

How to Troubleshoot No Fault Founds in Complex Wire Harnesses?
Ground Support and Test Equipment
Intermittence fault is a known problem in aircraft due to a large number of electrical wire and complex systems that make an aircraft. Newer aircraft have more computer-based systems, which has even more wiring than legacy aircraft.

Finding a problem in a bundle of wire-harness is a complex challenge. Sporadic intermittences that appear in mid-air are detected and reported by pilots. Once the aircraft is back on the ground, these intermittences are difficult, if not impossible for technicians to replicate. Aircraft vibration cannot easily be replicated, and many times the intermittences happen in fractions of milliseconds.

Therefore, problems observed in mid-air cannot easily be replicated on the ground. Technicians rely on ohmmeters to run conductivity testing, selecting line by line, looking for the problem. The tool of choice, a multimeter, is set up to find transients with millisecond accuracy. More...
An Insider’s Look at Avidyne Corp.
Avidyne President and CEO Dan Schwinn stated that as an owner of a legacy-era business jet himself, he knows the difficulty many operators face when it comes to finding cost-effective avionics upgrade solutions. And, more importantly, the negative impact the aging of the OEM avionics can have on the value of those aircraft.

“Our entry into the Part 25 turbine market is sort of a history of the development of our recent aftermarket products,” he said. “We brought the Avidyne IFD-family into the market in 2013, and it was a very good product when it came out. But we’ve made it a lot better now.

“I’ve recently reviewed all of the upgrades that we’ve added over the past six years. Some of them big and some small – and the third-party equipment and interfaces we’ve added, and improvements with the human factors. Put it all together, and you have a vast list of upgrades. It’s like a new unit.” More...
Autonomy for General Aviation
Autonomous Cessna 208 Caravans remotely supervised
Two San Francisco area startup companies led by software and aerospace engineers have developed and flight tested autonomous systems that have guided Cessna Model 208 Caravans from takeoff to touchdown.

These companies are two examples of the kind of startups attracting high-technology company executives and engineers as well as aerospace specialists to the goal of achieving autonomous flight. It may be easier to win Federal Aviation Administration approval to use an automated flight system in the Caravan, an already certified aircraft, than a clean sheet of paper electric vertical takeoff and landing air vehicle. More...
Aviation Ace
Tracy Stapleton of Ace Aeronautics
A master Army aviator, experimental test pilot and former Army flight instructor, Tracy Stapleton is a true aviation ace in every sense. He served nearly 15 years in the U.S. Army with the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne). He spent multiple tours of duty as an assault and attack helicopter pilot in command in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq when the war on terror was at its peak. His missions into rough terrain and hostile territory are the stuff of breaking news stories and classified briefings.

“When I graduated from U.S. Army Flight School, I was given a UH-60 Black Hawk transition prior to reporting to my first duty assignment,” Stapleton said. “I flew the UH-60L in Bosnia and the MH-60L in Afghanistan and Iraq.” More...
Continuing Development: ADS-B Options in 2021
Nothing stands still in aviation, and advances in avionics seem to come nonstop as manufacturers work to stay ahead of the market and the ever-changing regulatory realm. Even with the availability of plenty of equipment to satisfy the mandate to equip with automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast out, the state of technology to support this new way for controllers to monitor and manage aircraft advanced even more in 2020.

While controllers in the United States enjoy a vast network of ADS-B ground stations that provide the linkage between aircraft and controllers, not all parts of the world are suitable for employing a similar solution. For some regions and nations, it’s the vastness of the terrain in need of coverage; in others, it’s the costs. Many nations simply lack the financial resources to invest in and build a network similar to the U.S. system. More...
Theory & Practice: It's About Time
Navigators have been using time to navigate since the beginning of navigation. First, in the form of deduced reckoning, or as we call it today, dead-reckoning. If one can calculate their speed and keep track of how long they have traveled, they can tell how far they’ve gone. Dead-reckoning has worked extremely well for pilots, and it is still part of the private pilot curriculum.

Navigators can determine latitude easily by looking at the stars. Longitude isn’t so easy. Early mariners would keep track of time at the prime meridian, which now passes through Greenwich, England. They would take note of the difference in time, as measured from the sun, between the time in Greenwich and the time at their location. By doing some math, they could calculate their longitude.
