NEWS AND INFORMATION

Above Class A Airspace 7-29-15: Popular Science recently featured several companies that plan to give balloon rides up to 100,000 feet. I wonder who the pilots will be talking to when they pass through the top of the class A airspace of 60,000 feet. "Hello Boston Center, we are with you at 60,000 feet climbing to 100,000." A company called World View Experience in Tucson Arizona, is currently taking $7,500 deposits to reserve a seat on future flights which are projected to start around 2017 for around $75,000 per person. How many tickets would you like? Here is another creative way for wealthy people to spend their money. When you've traveled around the world several times, own several homes in different countries, own the car, house and boat (yacht) of you dreams, what else is there? How about sipping on a Martini looking out the window at the Grand Canyon from 100,000 feet... and for only $75,000. You can spend that amount taking your family on an ocean cruise.

SuperTruth & IonoSTAGE 7-25-15: A lot of technical talk is buzzing the internet about the WAAS system. The simple definition of WAAS from Garmin is: "Basically, it's a system of satellites and ground stations that provide GPS signal corrections, giving you even better position accuracy." In an article from NASA, Ratheon has developed two computer programs called, SuperTruth and IonoSTAGE, that correct data collected from the GPS signals from satellites that is combined with 38 ground based stations in the United States. A problem with the GPS signals is error caused by constant changes in the ionosphere that causes shifts and delays in the signals. SuperTruth and IonoSTAGE correct the data from 100 m to something less that 3m which is then sent back to special GPS satellites for distribution into the WAAS system. And... it gives you that three dimensional accuracy without any navigational equipment at the airport.

TFR ALERT For Martha's Vineyard 7-22-15: Looks like the FAA is turning up the heat on TFR violators. Apparently many pilots either do not check the TFR's or could it be they don't realize they are penetrating the perimeter. They wouldn't be doing it on purpose, right? AOPA just sent a new version of the TFR alert with the big bold red banner with do's, don'ts, in's and out's, and when to code and not to code.

Single Screen Cockpit 7-21-15: Bell Helicopter is showing a single-screen instrument panel concept for its V-280 Valor next-generation military tiltrotor. The panel currently is installed in the V-280 mock-up, which was supposed to be on display in the Pentagon’s courtyard from June 2 to 4. The panel display is said to be a collaborative effort among Bell, partner Lockheed Martin and Los Angeles-based Inhance Digital which have been working on the project for the last 18 months. So now that we're starting to get used to seeing PFD's and MFD's the apparent answer to simplify the screens is to make one large screen that spans the whole instrument panel that will superimpose the instruments on a panoramic display of a virtual landscape. There is also a video labeled as by Bell Helicopter, that looks more like a video game to recruit 8 year olds to be pilots of the future for the V-280.

HyperLoop Travel At 700 mphCLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION7-16-15: Elon Musk proposed a Hyperloop tubular transport device in 2013 and since then, other people have been working on developing the idea into a vehicle that would travel just under the speed of sound. "Hyperloop capsules would use either a magnetic field or a continuous blast of compressed air to float above the bottom of the tube. Pumps would remove most of the tube’s air, creating an extremely low-pressure environment. Minimal air means minimal friction, so the capsules would travel at up to 760 miles per hour, powered entirely by solar panels. How would your life be if you could travel 600 kilometers in half an hour, with a ticket price of $30? If we achieve that, we really change the way we live.” Sounds like an interesting idea, but I don't think I'll invest any of my 401k into that company just yet.
