With The Boeing 777x 3-8-14:
According to news articles, Boeing has decided to build a 1 million-square-foot
factory in Washington
state for manufacturing of the wings for the new 777x. The idea of globalization
has taken many twist and turns and some companies are deciding to bring
some of their manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Instead of "Outsourcing"
of industrial facilities we are hearing a new term they are calling "Reshoring."
However, like many companies in the U.S. have been doing over recent years,
as part of the new machinist union contract, Boeing has dropped the pension
plan and replaced it with a savings plan. Last year Boeing received bids
from 21 other states trying to get them to build the new factory in their

Goodbye to the A-10 Warthog 2-26-14:
article says that the A-10 is all done. It's been sacrificed for the
F-35 project. Here's a few comments from Avweb.
a proposed new budget for the U.S. Department of Defense announced on Monday,
the Air Force would shut down its fleet of A-10 "Warthog" close air support
aircraft and also would retire the U-2 spy plane."
TFR for the VP 2-22-14:
AOPA doesn't send out notices for mini or micro TFR's but the FAA has posted
one coming up in New York City. It
appears that VP
Joe Biden will be appearing on a television talk show in a TV studio
that is located in the middle of the Bravo
(Class B) airspace. The TFR's are small 1mi and 3 mi, and are buried
in the bowels of the Bravo airspace. The VP's TFR is also shown in orange
instead of the red lines on the 30 mi TFR's on the SkyVector map page.
Understanding the complexity of the New York airspace requires a certain
amount of staring at the aeronautical chart. Some pilots look at the Bravo
airspace as a challenge and others look at it as a Do-Not-Enter sign. Fortunately
for pilots flying out of Skyhaven airport, one quick look at Duats and
Notams and you're good to go.
PILOT WORKSHOP at Sanford 2-19-14:
Here's an excerpt from a recent email:
"Rusty Pilot Workshop March
8. Pilot skills feeling a little rusty? Our 3-hour workshop on Saturday,
March 8 from 1 to 4pm, is just the thing to get you feeling like Chuck
Yeager again. And did I mention that it's FREE? Feel free top drop in,
but if you think you're likely to attend, we'd appreciate an RSVP with
Anne at 324-8919 or firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many seats to prepare
and how many refreshments to buy! We really hope to see some of you that
we haven't seen in a while! Southern Maine Aviation, 199 Airport Road,
Sanford, Maine 04073"
Skyhawk Reimagined 2-17-14:
Another light sport that's getting a lot of attention is the Tecnam
It's a high
wing two seater that has very smooth lines with aerodynamic lines flowing
from the propeller spinner to the tip of the tail rudder. It makes the
Skycatcher look like the ugly duckling. Tecnam is also introduction a four
seat version that's been described as a Skyhawk
Reimagined. I thought it actually resembles the Cessna Cardinal with
its rounded fuselage. It would appear that Tecnam has been able to do with
Cessna couldn't do with the Cardinal and that is to
come up with a viable alternative to the Skyhawk.
The P2010 cost
lest or similar to a Skyhawk, has a cabin that's 5 inches wider, and has
a cruise speed of 153 mph with a Lycoming IO-360 180 hp. The pilot door
looks impressive to open and access the cockpit, but the passenger door
on the right side of the plane is a major departure for four seat single
engine aircraft. Now I'm confused. I thought I wanted an RV-12 but I can't
stop looking at the P2008
& P2010. (NOTE: All aircraft icons and underlined items in this
