The standards organization ASTM says both the European Commission and European Aviation Safety Agency have endorsed a "global initiative to modernize the way smaller airplanes are certified."

The FAA has updated its policy on experimental-amateur built (E-AB) aircraft to allow pilots who build their own airplanes to bring along a qualified additional pilot on their initial test flights, EAA said on Monday.

"The majority of those accidents were related to pilot loss of control and were preventable."

I was arriving in the Washington, D.C., area with a destination of Manassas Regional in Virginia. There was a mid-morning thunderstorm that was causing aircraft, including Air Force One, to request deviations when I heard the following. ... After being denied a 20-degree deviation to the right to avoid weather and given an alternative of 30 degrees left, a GA pilot sounded irritated and was particularly demanding with a second request for a 20-degree deviation to the right. ... Sounding ever the professional, Approach responded: "I can give you 20 right, but if I can't give you any more if you need it because that will put you in the Washington restricted airspace and you'll have an F-15 escort within a couple of minutes." ... The response? After a short pause, a more humble: "I'd like the 30-degree left deviation, please." ... I would have also. -- Joe Shelton

A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B.
