Warbird Alley: Privately-owned, vintage, ex-military aircraft
OUTRAGEOUS HOUSE BILL INTRODUCED THAT WOULD SEVERELY RESTRICT GENERAL AVIATION
 

The Experimental Aircraft Association is urging its members and all aviation enthusiasts to contact their Congressional representatives and strongly oppose a newly introduced bill by Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY)
This bill ( H.R. 5035 ) would require the Department of Homeland Security to create a method of screening all passengers and property on each flight of all passenger aircraft in the U.S., including general aviation aircraft of all types. It would also prohibit non-airline aircraft from flying within 1,500 feet of any structure or building, and prohibit non-airline aircraft from flying over any U.S. city with a population of 1 million or more.
It would further require that pilots of all aircraft in U.S. airspace remain in contact with the Federal Aviation Administration, presumably by radio, regardless of altitude or location.
"The extreme shortsightedness of this bill speaks for itself and completely counters the government's own security experts, who have continually stated that general aviation does not pose a significant security threat to the U.S.," said Doug Macnair, EAA's Vice President of Government Relations. "It's sad that the solemn anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks is being used to introduce this bill, which does nothing to enhance security and smacks of election-year grandstanding."
With 17,000 landing facilities and nearly 200,000 aircraft in the United States, EAA maintains that it is inconceivable that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and FAA could ever fund and administer such a plan. DHS and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have repeatedly indicated that general aviation does not warrant such levels of security when compared to other transportation modes and threats.
"We as a nation need to focus our limited resources on the most serious vulnerabilities and threats to our security," Macnair added. "TSA has made extensive studies of those threats and nowhere has that agency ever suggested such draconian measures as those proposed in this bill."
People can express their opposition to this bill to their congressional representatives by finding their contact information at http://www.house.gov .

Click to see video GA security improved since September 11 Pilots play key role
With the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks falling on Saturday, the news media have already started reporting on our national security and vulnerabilities. Some of their stories have, and will, focus on aviation.
General aviation security has improved significantly since September 11, and it's happened because of positive actions taken by the GA community. Heavy-handed government intervention hasn't been required.
"I'm the ultimate optimist," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "I think it's going to get better. We all have a duty to keep our eyes and ears open. And that's working."
Referring to AOPA's Airport Watch and the toll-free 866/GA-SECUR(E) hotline, Boyer noted that the Transportation Security Administration is receiving some seven calls per day from pilots reporting possible suspicious activities. "That shows pilots are on the lookout. Recently three attempts were made to test the system, and the TSA was very pleased that all three were reported to the hotline. General aviation has changed proactively since 9/11." You can see a video clip with more of Phil Boyer's reflections on September 11 and its effect on general aviation [ low resolution high resolution ; broadband connection recommended] More on GA security
AOPA working the Hill to defeat ridiculous GA security bill
The moment word first leaked out that Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) wanted to impose security restrictions on general aviation that exceed even those of the airlines, AOPA's Legislative Affairs staff sprung into action, lobbying against the bill.
"This is preposterous, unrealistic, and unnecessary," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "General aviation is not a threat. The TSA has already said so.
"The AOPA staff has outlined our strong opposition to the legislation in meetings with Republican and Democratic staff of the House aviation subcommittee. The association is also using its extensive network of relationships with key members of the subcommittee in fighting the bill."
Weiner's bill, H.R. 5035, would mandate the same screening for all passengers and property aboard GA aircraft that is required for the airlines. It would also prohibit any aircraft other than an airliner from flying over cities with populations of 1 million or more, or operating within 1,500 feet of any building.
"In light of everything that has already been done, requirements like those Rep. Weiner would impose would kill all of general aviation."

AOPA's advocacy deters unwarranted restriction at Michigan airport
It will be business — or pleasure — as usual for pilots flying into Oakland/Troy Airport (7D2) during the Ryder Cup Tournament, thanks to a unified effort from AOPA's advocacy team.
Chuck Griswold, Airport Support Network (ASN) volunteer at 7D2, and several other local AOPA members contacted AOPA when they discovered that officials in Troy planned to close the airport from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. during the golf tournament next week.
"We used every resource to reverse the planned nighttime closure of 7D2," said Bill Dunn, AOPA vice president of airports. "The local officials soon realized that their attempt to enhance security during the tournament was unwarranted and extreme."
The airport is replacing the closure plan with AOPA's Airport Watch program . Volunteer pilots have begun signing up already for "watch times" at the airport. More on Ryder Cup restrictions
AOPA forces changes in San Jose noise ordinance
Capping a multi-year effort, AOPA successfully forced San Jose Norman Y. Mineta International Airport (SJC) to abandon its discriminatory, weight-based noise curfew.
"We understand that noise is a growing issue with many airports, and we always encourage our members to be good neighbors, 'fly friendly,' and reduce their noise footprint," said Bill Dunn, AOPA vice president of airports.

Cockpit Concepts: September 5, 2004

Avoiding CFIT (Controlled Flight Into Terrain).
In the last issue, Norm Komich wrote about high workload and resulting loss of situation awareness. One tragic result of diminished awareness is CFIT. Lives are lost when an aircraft in good working order impacts the terrain or ground obstacles.

As I stated on the Aviation.Org website (Director's Letter), "this type of accident goes right to the heart of awareness, judgment and decision making." CFIT accidents have received a great deal of attention yet, statistically, the associated accident rate remains unchanged. Industry efforts not withstanding, "something is missing [as] the message is not getting to the cockpit."

Perhaps we can use this forum to shine some light on this problem from a different angle--that is, by providing pilot input. Many of us have lost friends--capable pilots--to CFIT. Or, we may have unwittingly compromised our own safety and not suffered similar consequences. What have we learned? What precautions do we take? What are the "tricks of the trade," so to speak?

It would be both interesting and educational to get your input on this very real safety subject. To assemble your thoughts, a new CFIT Pilot Lounge thread has been started for your use. Or, if you prefer, a note to safety@aviation.org would also work. Thanks in advance for sharing your ideas on avoiding CFIT.

Cyprus Airways Says Cash-Flow Adequate...
National carrier Cyprus Airways on Thursday dismissed reports it would soon be unable to pay staff if it continued to run up losses, saying that its cash-flow was adequate. Speculation has abounded on the fate of the government-controlled airline since it reported a first-half pre-tax loss of CPY30.11 million last week (USD$64.1 million), with newspapers on Thursday speculating that difficulties were looming in making its payroll. Cyprus Airways is taking "appropriate measures" to ensure adequate liquidity, the airline said in a statement. "It remains at satisfactory levels and allows the company to fully meet its financial obligations." The carrier sees a return to profitability in 2006 if it pursues a controversial survival plan, which includes redundancies and the disposal of aircraft. Cyprus Airways cited a massive bill for a new fleet and the operational costs of a new subsidiary in Greece to explain the first-half profit drop.
The airline's decisions to acquire a new fleet and create Greek subsidiary Hellas Jet in 2002 and 2003 have drawn criticism from the present government, which came to power after the airline had made the arrangements. A new Cyprus Airways board appointed by the government has distanced itself from its predecessors' decisions. "The financial state of the group is directly related to wrong decisions and actions of the past, particularly relating to the renewal of the fleet and the creation of Hellas Jet," the airline said. Airline officials have not ruled out the possibility that Hellas Jet could be ditched in an overhaul....

September 2004 - pmSystems Video and Intro Documentation
Days before the release of the interactive demo for pmSystems our site now has an introductory manual/document as well as a Video online. These help explain the idea behind this software in a far more concrete way.
pmSystems provides us with the ability to simulate the complex system logics found in heavy transport aircraft. It can be used both as a pure software interface and / or to provide logics for custom hardware. It is very flexible and the overhead panels of a variety of aircraft can be represented by one software using different configuration files for different types of aircraft. This is true both for the graphics and the systems logic.
