PLANS YOUNG EAGLES FOR ADULTS
EAA will expand the Young
Eagles program to include a version for adults. Rod Hightower, CEO and,
as of today, Chairman of EAA told about 25 members attending the
organization's annual general meeting on Saturday that the as-yet
unnamed program will be directed toward the parents of kids in Young
Eagles and at giving adults a Young Eagles-type experience. "I think
we're onto something that will be useful into the future," he was quoted

INSTANT UAV FLIES
Scientists in the UK have
produced a flying UAV in a process called sintering. The group designed the Southhampton
University Laser Sintered Aircraft (Sulsa) on a computer (with eliptical
wings like a Spitfire and a honecombed fuselage like a Bolingbroke) and
sent it to 3D RPD. The company used the data to build up the
aircraft's components in a heated chamber by layering nylon powder in
the correct measure to create each part. All the parts were finished in
five days and snapped together to create a seven-foot-long flying UAV.
The scientists say there should be some pretty impressive real world
applications for the technique. More...

test facility in Lakehurst, NJ. The test seemed to go as planned with
the aircraft leaping from the launch device despite the soaring
temperatures in New Jersey last week. The Marine Corps also showed off

Back in the mid-'80s, Piedmont Airlines began
flying out of Worcester airport (ORH) in Massachusetts to
Baltimore/Washington International airport (BWI). A flight crew
requested their IFR clearance, and I dutifully rattled it off to them in
typical New England air traffic control fashion. As I concluded, the
response I received in a thick Southern drawl was
