FIRST GA FLY-IN POSTPONED
The first-ever general aviation
fly-in in China, which was set for later this month, has been postponed
indefinitely, according to AOPA. The event was scheduled for Sept. 22 to 24,
with about 20 privately owned helicopters from around the country
expected to gather at an airport outside Beijing. However, a helicopter
operated by the Beijing Police Department crashed last month into a
reservoir near the fly-in site, killing four of the five people on
board. AOPA China said the crash drew "attention and safety concerns
from the public and the authorities," and the ongoing investigation has
raised questions about whether the airspace will continue to be
accessible. The first-ever AOPA Summit in China, which is scheduled to
take place the same weekend in Beijing, will go on as scheduled.

MARKET GETS MIXED REVIEWS
Raleigh, N.C.-based aircraft broker
Jetcraft Corporation says those in the market for a
business aircraft are looking beyond the current economic uncertainty,
and demand for certain types of planes remains steady. In a statement
issued last week. the company says the market seems largely unaffected
by the "macroeconomic events" of the past few months and the company is
"guardedly optimistic" the current strong sales will be maintained. "We
believe that confidence in the business jet market is holding because
the volume of transactions has remained quite stable," said Jetcraft
spokesman Jahid Fazal-Karim. "Business jet purchasers are generally
acquiring aircraft based on anticipated lift requirements six to 18
months from today. This trend illustrates continued confidence as
globalization of business continues. The need for long range business
jets, particularly in emerging markets, is here to stay." Dassault isn't
quite so sure of the strength of the market, however. More...

INSIDER BLOG: 9/11 WEEK -- YES TO COMMEMORATION, NO TO
As the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks
approaches, it was inevitable that the media would be filled with
retrospectives and reports. We are right to remember the victims who
died in the attacks and the servicemen and women who have died since.
But we owe it to ourselves not to wallow in the past and to put the risk
of terrorism where it belongs -- a worry, yes, but not one that
threatens the Republic and far, far down the list of hazards we all face
every day. It's time to move on, says Paul Bertorelli in his latest post
to the AVweb Insider blog. Read
