AVweb‘s weekly news roundup found reports on a new exhibit at the Tillamook Air Museum, a research team looking for ASRS report from GA pilots, installation of a new in-flight connectivity system on a Bombardier Challenger 300, an updated white paper for business aircraft operators and an agreement between Hawaiian Airlines and MINT Software Systems.

In cooperation with Scroggins Aviation of Las Vegas, Nevada, the Tillamook Air Museum has added the forward fuselage of a 1960 Trans-World Airlines Convair 880 jetliner to its collection of historic aircraft and aviation exhibits. The 43-foot fuselage section will be taken to the museum’s location in Tillamook, Oregon, for use as an interactive walkthrough exhibit.

A team researching wake turbulence is asking for GA pilots to report wake turbulence encounters using the Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS). The researchers say that most of the wake turbulence reports received are from commercial airlines, leading to data that doesn’t take into account the perspective of small aircraft operators.

Banyan Air Service has announced that it has completed its first installation of a Gogo AVANCE L5 system on a Bombardier Challenger 300. The company says the installation of the 4G in-flight connectivity system was completed on budget in under three weeks. Also for business aircraft, the Advanced Aircrew Academy has published a white paper covering changes to training requirements and recommendations in the 2018 International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations. The white paper is available at no charge.

Finally, Hawaiian Airlines has signed a service agreement with MINT Software Systems to implement MINT’s Training and Resource Management System. The system provides training schedules, record management, electronic grading, reporting and analysis capabilities.
