AEA Urges Action to Set Aside FCC’s Ligado Order
On the two-year anniversary of the Federal Communications Commission’s Ligado Order (released April 22, 2020) when eight petitions for reconsideration of the Order remain pending, the Aircraft Electronics Association joined a broad coalition of nearly 100 organizations urging President Joe Biden’s administration and Congress to work with the FCC to ultimately set aside the flawed Ligado Order that, if left in place, would upend decades of sound spectrum policy, negatively impact a significant cross-section of commercial, federal, and academic users who rely on the many different L-band satellite services, and threaten the safety of most Americans.

On April 25, 2022, multiple groups representing various constituencies across the American economy signed letters to President Biden and congressional leaders in both the United States Senate and House of Representatives. More...

General Aviation Safety
Online with the Air Safety Institute’s Robert T. Nall Report
Named in memory of the National Transportation Safety Board member, a passenger who perished in a 1989 airplane crash in Caracas, Venezuela, the AOPA Air Safety Institute first published the Robert T. Nall Report in 1990. It analyzes general aviation accidents that take place each year in the national airspace system, including flights departing from and returning to the United States and its territories. The aircraft involved must have a maximum gross takeoff weight of 12,500 pounds or less, or be a helicopter of any size.

For avionics repair stations, the Nall Report provides insight on the challenges faced by their predominate customers. Its online platform enables comparisons of selected dates back to 2008 that can offer insights on safety trends. Released late last year, the 31st Nall Report provides comprehensive data for 2019. Until the NTSB issues its reports on the accidents, a process that can take up to two years, all of the report’s accident data, which the ASI updates every 30 days, is preliminary. More...
Big Things Come in Small Packages
If it hadn’t been for the Federal Aviation Administration’s mandate demanding ADS-B Out be fitted to a major portion of the U.S. civil fleet a few years ago, many fewer people in the aviation industry would probably know anything about uAvionix. The Bigfork, Montana, avionics company – 43 employees strong – became well-known a few years ago with some affordable ADS-B Out solutions to meet the mandate and calm the fears of many aircraft owners about being able to continue flying their airplane. Not only did uAvionix provide its skyBeacon and tailBeacon both UAT 978 MHz transponders, but the tailBeaconX offered both a UAT and a 1090 MHz Mode S ADS-B Out transponder.

Because the skyBeacon replaced the aircraft’s left/port side navigation light and the tailBeacon the white tail recognition light, they also offered installation simplicity requiring just half an hour’s labor using a few simple hand tools. Complete certification required only a logbook entry from a technician with an inspection authority. The result was uAvionix grabbed a huge portion of the general aviation ADS-B Out market for themselves. More...
Dominion Aviation Sees Record Charter Flights in 2021
As Dominion Aviation Services approaches 40 years in business, it’s remarkable that some of the service center’s biggest milestones came just last year. Among the most significant were large leaps in the number of charter trips and chartered hours. Clearly, for those who could afford it, 2021 was the year to avoid the airlines and embrace private business travel.

Located three hours south of Washington, D.C., at Chesterfield County Airport in North Chesterfield, Virginia, Dominion Aviation specializes in aircraft management, maintenance, flight training and FBO services as well as Part 135 charter operations. In its maintenance department, nearly two dozen mechanics, inspectors and administrative staff help maintain the service center’s exceptionally busy stable of managed and charter aircraft, which includes Gulfstream, Falcon, Cessna Citation and Hawker aircraft along with Beechcraft King Airs and Barons.

ADS-B Takes Over Air-Traffic Surveillance and Adds to the Safety Toolkit
Surely you noticed. After a decade of development, stories and warnings, secondary surveillance radar smoothly gave way to automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast, or ADS-B, on Jan. 1, 2020. Few controllers noticed the transition, though there were a few bumps along the transition road.

In 2010, the FAA, working with offshore helicopter operators in the Gulf of Mexico, gave controllers and operators their second live test of the technology, following implementation in the Ohio River Valley to improve the flow of traffic into Louisville International Airport, the main air-traffic hub for United Parcel Service’s daily crush of traffic in and out of the UPS hub. ADS-B also got a live tryout in Alaska as part of the FAA’s Capstone Project, which helped prove the benefits and viability of this GPS-based traffic-surveillance system.

By the time the FAA’s you-gotta-have-it date came on Jan. 1, 2020, the ADS-B system had been in service in select spots for nearly a decade. Gulf of Mexico coverage began as a life surveillance system in January 2010 – a full decade before the mandated compliance date. More...
GA Safety Committee’s Initiatives Include CFIT, System Component Failure
The General Aviation Joint Steering Committee, a collaborative industry-government group, works to improve general aviation safety through data-driven accident analysis and the development and promotion of risk mitigation measures, based on the accident data. The GAJSC’s analysis leads to safety enhancements – plans containing one or more intervention strategies to prevent or mitigate a common problem associated with the cause of a set of accidents. Safety enhancements can focus on equipment, procedures, training or other mitigations.

In 2011, the GAJSC reviewed a decade of fatal general aviation accidents – 2001 to 2010 – identifying the top 10 fatality risks. Those risks determined the group’s work priorities. The top three risks were loss of control in flight, controlled flight into terrain, and system component failure – powerplant. The GAJSC published the CFIT working group report in June 2021. The CFIT working group reviewed 67 accidents for analysis in its report, which resulted in seven safety enhancements. More...
Errors Provide Teachable Moments
Sometimes, we find errors in manuals. Under normal circumstances, we would make sure those mistakes get corrected. The classroom isn’t exactly a normal circumstance. Manual errors or shortcomings become tools for lessons. Each semester, the documentation we use provides learning opportunities.

At worst, the error could cause us to damage an expensive piece of avionics gear. We often spend some unbillable time making sure the error gets corrected. A knowledgeable technician might even gloss over some errors and keep going. For those of us teaching avionics, the errors can be great opportunities for students to learn. More...
Best Practices for Shops
Maintenance and avionics shops have a significant role to play when considering their customers’ safety, especially in the time immediately after work has been performed. Personal experience and the accident record tell us this role isn’t always fulfilled. One way to minimize the odds a customer will have an operational issue with the work a shop performs is to adopt and adhere to a set of standard procedures – call them best practices – while working on or delivering aircraft.

When it comes to avionics and other advanced equipment, no one expects the vendor/installer to provide pilots with detailed training on every new capability or gotcha unless it’s part of the package. And it’s sometimes difficult to rein in a pilot who presents as a know-it-all and refuses reasonable counsel. You can’t be expected to follow this guy around to prevent him from doing something stupid. Yet anyone who works near or on an aircraft needs to think about ways to enhance the safety of their operation, if for no other reason than to save pilots from themselves. More...
