The FAA has reported that an "unknown object" struck a Piper Apache while in flight near Romeoville, Illinois, but according to the drone website suasnews.com, that object was likely a small drone. Citing an "unconfirmed report," suasnews states that a Piper PA-23 twin impacted the drone at about 2,500 feet near Lewis University Airport (KLOT) in Illinois on August 27. Photos of damage on the aircraft appear to show a series of vertical indentations and a slice into the rubber de-ice boot along the leading edge of the tail surface. The airplane landed safely and nobody was hurt.
In one of the more unusual press releases we've seen, RAM Aircraft LP, a Waco, Texas engine and mod shop, says Continental Motors' recent acquisition of ECi "will cost everyone in general aviation."

NBAA this week filed its formal response to a recent announcement from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that it wants to regulate carbon emissions from airplanes.

When Danny Croy pulled back on the yoke from his perch in the left seat of a Cessna 172, his face revealed a confidence that often escaped the autistic 19-year-old. Croy is not comfortable with significant changes in routine, but the short discovery flight from the Frederick, Maryland, airport left him beaming. An army of airport employees working behind the scenes keeps the airport running smoothly and helps make experiences like these happen.
