DUATS CHANGES TO Leidos Pilot Web Portal 4-22-18: 

If you have been using DUATS for weather briefings than you've been notified that it's changing. "DUATS will be discontinued after May 16th!! On March 13th, the FAA released this notification: “Flight Service Transitions to Leidos Pilot Web Portal“ “The FAA will discontinue the Direct User Access Terminal Service (DUATS II) Program, effective May 16, 2018. Internet services, including access to weather and aeronautical information, flight plan filing and automated services will remain available at no charge to pilots at www.1800wxbrief.com." (more...)

MiG–17F star airshow attractions:  4-21-18: AOPA reports a MiG–17F was one of the star airshow attractions at the Sun 'n Fun International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland, Florida with pilot Randy Ball. Have you ever wondered what is the highest level of achievement a pilot in the U.S. could reach? Well take a look at pilot Randy Ball. "Randy has performed well over 1,000 performances to date! No other North American Jet Demo pilot even comes close to that number of performances. In fact, Randy is the only Jet Demo pilot (military or civilian) to be granted both a day and night unlimited aerobatic rating in jet fighters by the FAA. He has flown over 42 different types of aircraft, manufactured in nine countries." (more...)
His airshow plane is a Russian MiG-17F that looks like it is in pristine condition. I wonder how much it cost to keep that airplane in shape for airshow performances?

TRUMP TFR No Cutouts In Florida :  4-16-18: TFR's appearing in Florida again with Trumps visit for this week. President Donald Trump arrives in South Florida. An advisory from the Federal Aviation Administration indicates the president is scheduled to land in Miami at about noon. Trump will be in Hialeah for a discussion on tax cuts for small businesses. Afterward he is scheduled to travel to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach. Looks like no progress being made on any cutouts in the tfr to protect and help local fbo's and flight schools. AOPA estimated that the annual economic impact of TFR-related activity reductions exceeds $1 million in lost revenue. AOPA director of aviation security, met with officials of the North American Aerospace Defense Command on March 29 to discuss ways to make TFRs more efficient and easier for pilots to identify and avoid.

SURPRISE ASTEROID FLYBY:  4-15-18: With little warning, on Sunday, April 15th, a "Tunguska-class" asteroid about the size of a football field flew through the Earth-Moon system. 2018 GE3 was discovered just the day before as it plunged inward from the asteroid belt. A quick-thinking amateur astronomer in Europe was able to record a video of the asteroid as it flew by. "According to wikipedia, 2018 GE3 is the largest known asteroid to pass that close to Earth in observational history."

Cessna’s Turbo Skyhawk JT–A 4-13-18: Cessna’s Turbo Skyhawk JT–A replaces the popular Lycoming with a liquid-cooled, turbocharged Continental Diesel CD-155, formerly marketed as a Thielert Centurion 2.0S. The JT–A is equipped with a Garmin G1000 NXi avionics, a Safe Flight SCc angle of attack system, and ADS-B Out and In. The four-cylinder diesel engine, certified to operate on jet and diesel fuel, uses FADEC to maximize efficiency and replaces mixture and throttle with a single-lever power control. That means mixture, pitch and throttle are combined into one lever for controlling the three bladed prop. It also has a pushbutton start. You can get one of these modified Skyhawks from Cessna for only $465,000. How many would you like? Last year Cessna sold 129 Skyhawks with the regular Lycoming 180hp version at around $365,000 each. In 2001 they went for about $160,000
