Business Flying Continues Slow Climb

Business aircraft flying continued its positive trend so far this year, with activity climbing 1.1 percent last month from March 2013, according to the TraqPak data released yesterday by aviation services company Argus. Its analysts also estimate that overall flight activity this month will rise 0.4 percent from last year.

Part 135 charter flying powered the overall increase in March, logging a 4.9-percent gain from a year ago. Overall Part 91 activity was unchanged from the same month last year, though the mix was more favorable as Part 91 turboprop flying fell 4.6 percent and large-cabin jets jumped 10.8 percent. Fractional activity, meanwhile, slumped by 3.1 percent year-over-year.

LearJet 85 

The Bombardier Learjet 85 successfully completed its maiden flight yesterday, marking the beginning of the all-composite midsize jet’s flight-test program. Flight-test vehicle one (FTV1) lifted off from Wichita Mid Continent International Airport yesterday at 8:19 a.m. CST.

At the controls of the fly-by-wire jet during the two-hour 15-minute flight were Bombardier Flight Test Center chief flight-test pilot Ed Grabman and copilot Jim Dwyer, with flight-test engineer Nick Weyers in the cabin monitoring data.

Next generation solar cells to be 100 million times more efficient

Next generation solar cells to be 100 million times more efficient

Next generation solar cells to be 100 million times more efficient
 Solar Cell 
Next-generation solar cells could be infinitely more useful thanks to a newly discovered nanotube structure capable of transporting electrical charges 100 million times higher than previously measured.
 
The findings of the scientists at Umeå University in Sweden are published in the latest issue of the science journal Advanced Materials. Most solar cells currently use silicon to absorb light, however inefficiencies in the material have led scientists to develop carbon nanotubes that can be implemented to enhance the light absorption capabilities of current cells. However, until now the nanotubes have been randomly placed within the solar cells in suboptimal structures as they are difficult to arrange. Nano networks Findings from the paper reveal that the scientists from Sweden were able to manipulate the carbon nanotubes using controlled, nano-scale dimensions inside a polymer matrix.
 
The scientists found that using this method allowed them to rearrange the nanotubes into complex networks that reduced the cost of nanotubes needed. “Very small amounts of nanotubes can be used – less than 1% compare to before – and still produce very efficient devices,”  Dr David Barbero, leader of the project and anassistant professor at Umeå University, told IBTimes UK. “We can reduce the amount of carbon nanotube material used by at least 100 times, meaning much lower materials costs.” Solar cells made of these materials are solution processable, which means they do not require expensive equipment to produce yet still vastly increase the conductivity within the cell. “We have found that the resulting nano networks possess exceptional ability to transport charges, up to 100 million times higher than previously measured carbon nanotube random networks produced by conventional methods,” Barbero said. Barbaro does not yet know when the technology might be used in the production of solar cells but believes that the current pace of the field means it could well be in the “near future”.

Santa Monica Residents File Ballot Initiative To Preserve Airport

Santa Monica Residents File Ballot Initiative To Preserve Airport

Would Amend The City Charter To Require Council To Gain Voter Approval Before Closing KSMO

A group of airport supporters in Santa Monica has filed paperwork beginning the process of placing a city charter revision on the November ballot that would require the City Council gain voter approval before they could close any part of the Santa Monica Airport (KSMO).

The move comes just two days after the council again voted unanimously to begin the process of closing the airport despite a federal judge's ruling denying the council control of the airport, and an FAA opinion that the city must operate the airport "into perpetuity" as long as it is located on city-owned land.

The Santa Monica Lookout reports that the ballot initiative would require the collection 6,100 valid signatures on petitions in six months to be placed on the ballot.

AOPA Launches 'Rusty Pilots Initiative'

AOPA Launches 'Rusty Pilots Initiative'

Program Designed To Help Lapsed Pilots Get Back In The Air

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has launched an "easy and fun new way" for pilots who have gotten away from flying to get back in the cockpit.

AOPA’s Rusty Pilots program allows lapsed pilots a way to return to flying in a matter of hours through a free session of ground school that fulfills the FAA's flight review requirement for ground instruction.
 
After the seminar, which includes topics such as a refresher on airspace and the most pertinent regulations, pilots can work directly with a local flight school or flying club to schedule dual flight-time in order to complete a flight review.

“Once a pilot, always a pilot,” said Brittney Miculka, AOPA’s senior manager of pilot community development. “It’s much easier for people to get back into flying than they might think. This program makes it both easy and fun.”
 
The potential of the Rusty Pilots program is substantial. An AOPA survey found that as many as 500,000 pilots earned a private pilot certificate but later stopped flying. The research determined that 87 percent of those pilots, “either intend to come back or might come back to flying.” The remainder said they were unable to fly due to medical reasons
