  1. At AirVenture 2017, Massachusetts-based Approach Aviation announced FAA approval and production shipment of its FlexAlert multifunction panel annunciator.

  2. Following years of incremental progress and cabin mock-ups, Stratos arrived at Oshkosh 2017 with a real airplane. After first flight in November 2016, the proof of concept aircraft is still early in the envelope expansion stage. At 70 flight hours, company test pilots have taken the Stratos 714 to 330 knots true airspeed, 250 knots indicated and 18,000 feet. Kevin Jordan, chief sales officer, says the production airplane will carry four 200-pound passengers, with bags, for 1,500 nautical miles at 400 knots true and FL410.

  3. For pilots who are still not sure about how the BasicMed program works, or if it’s right for them, the FAA’s latest Safety Briefing magazine aims to answer all of your questions. The issue, available for free download online, includes a Q&A, an infographic that walks you through the procedures and advice on how to talk to your doctor about the options. It also features a listing of all the FAA safety forums scheduled for this week at the FAA Safety Center at EAA AirVenture.

  4. The FAA has reorganized its certification division, scrapping the familiar Transport, Small Airplane, Engine and Propeller and Rotorcraft Directorates in favor of a new “functionally-aligned organizational structure.”

  5. At AirVenture 2017, Cirrus announced the new Embark complimentary training program intended to help buyers transitioning to used SR20 and SR22 aircraft.

  6. CubCrafters announced Monday at AirVenture that it's offering Garmin's top-selling G3X Touch in its Part 23 certified XCub, making it the first company to amend a type certificate to allow non-certified or non-TSO'd avionics. The G3X Touch is a favorite among homebuilders and light sport manufacturers and has a full-featured primary flight display plus an autopilot with envelope protection.

  7. Jack Pelton, Chairman of EAA, says AirVenture 2017, the 65th edition and the 48th consecutive show held at Whitman Regional in Oshkosh, Wisconsin is likely to be the biggest ever. Last year, the show reached a new attendance record, but a modest one—up 1% over 2015. This year, advance purchase tickets are up 12% over last year, and aircraft parking was 85% full by Sunday night, said Pelton.

  8. The entire fleet of Piper M600s has been grounded following the discovery of a single, non-conforming aft wing spar from Piper’s component supplier. The non-conforming part was discovered to be below minimum thickness in one region, prompting a mandatory service bulletin.

  9. Icon Aircraft hopes to deliver 15 aircraft by the end of this year and ramp up to 200 for 2018. In an interview at AirVenture 2017, CEO Kirk Hawkins said six aircraft have been delivered to customers who have so far been pleased with the aircraft.

  10. Superior Air Parts, holder of 3,500 PMAs for general aviation aircraft, celebrates 50 years in business with the publication of Engine Management 101, a compendium of years of experience building and selling replacement engine parts. Well-known to mechanics and owners, Superior is the only supplier of many replacement engine parts other than the original equipment manufacturer. Superior takes great pride in keeping prices for replacement parts competitive.
