FAA, like many federal agencies, has a nasty habit of expending lots of time and money working to keep the people in the dark. They are supposed to comply with FOIA laws, but instead they redact the hell out of what should be disclosed. Making matters worse, in recent decades it seems as though most in Congress are ‘too busy’ and/or ‘too inert’ to force FAA to follow the FOIA laws. Every once in a while, we get a great chance to look past these barriers. See more...Newsletter-on-line 2017
Why It’s Your Fault!
Posted by The Unaccompanied Flyer
American Reduced Legroom, Get Over It! American Airlines recently announced that the airline would reduce the amount of standard main cabin pitch from 31-inches to 30-inches beginning with the delivery of their first Boeing 737 MAX. Reducing the pitch (legroom) by two inches, of course, allows American to fly more passengers on a single flight. Additionally, on three rows of American’s new 737 MAX aircraft, pitch (aka legroom) will be reduced to 29-inches.By comparison, both Spirit and Frontier, two prominent ultra-low cost carriers feature 28 to 29-inch pitch on all of their aircraft as well.

On Laptop Ban
By Paul Bertorelli
The U.S. plan to ban laptops from
airliner cabins on flights originating in Europe is drawing increasing
resistance from the European Union, a UK pilot union and business travelers. EU
aviation authorities will meet this week to consider the proposed laptop ban.
The issue became the center of a Washington political firestorm this week on
reports that President Donald Trump revealed classified information to Russian
diplomats related to intelligence on terrorists’ plans to use laptops as
explosive devices. More of the Article in Newsletter Online

Helicopter Crews To Be Honored At Arlington
A monument to the helicopter crews of the Vietnam War will be placed at Arlington Cemetery, after a long uphill fight by advocates. It’s hard to think of that war without thinking of helicopters, whether your experience of the war was firsthand or from news, documentaries and movies like Apocalypse Now. But when a group of veterans approached Arlington National Cemetery about installing a monument to those crews, they met obstacles. The Army’s Advisory Committee for the cemetery deadlocked 3-to-3 on the proposal in March 2015. John McHugh, then the Army secretary, told Time magazine the monument would take up too much space, which is fast being used up. See more…Newsletter Online 2017.

An Icon A5 amphibious light sport aircraft crashed about 9:20 a.m. on Monday along the shore of Lake Berryessa in Napa County, California, and two Icon employees were killed -- Jon Karkow, 55, the pilot in command of the aircraft, and Cagri Sever, 41, who was a passenger. It’s the first fatal crash for the design. The site, which is close to the company's training facility in Vacaville, is inaccessible by land, but authorities reached the wreckage via boat. The FAA and NTSB are investigating. Newsletter-on-line 2017

The restored B-29 Doc made its airshow debut on Saturday, in the Defenders of Liberty Airshow at Barksdale Air Force Base, in Louisiana. “What was really special for us, we were able to meet up with a B-52 in flight, over Oklahoma,” Josh Wells, spokesman for Doc’s Friends, told AVweb this week. “That was majestic. Doc’s first assignment, in 1945, was Barksdale, so to come screaming down across the airfield with those bombers, that was special. Newsletter-on-line 2017
