AEA Urges Protection of Satellite Communications Services from Harmful Interference
The Aircraft Electronics Association recently joined more than 50 other organizations to urge congressional “support of several provisions that will protect our nation's military global positioning system (GPS) devices and satellite communications services from harmful interference.” In a Nov. 20 letter sent to the chairmen and ranking members of the United States Senate and House Committees on Armed Services, the coalition wrote, “If the Federal Communications Commission’s April 2020 Ligado Order is left in place, it would upend decades of sound spectrum policy, negatively impact a significant cross-section of commercial and federal users who rely on the many different L-band satellite services, and threaten the safety of most Americans.”

Seeking several provisions in the conference agreement of H.R. 6395, the William (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, the coalition letter also stated, “L-Band satellite services are ‘fundamental to the nation’s economy, national security, and continued technological leadership.’ We fully support House Sections 1608 and 1609 and Senate Sections 234, 1083, and 6082, and respectfully request that all five provisions remain in the conferenced version of the legislation.” More...
Monotony Alternative: In-flight Entertainment Options for Light Aircraft
When you think about it, Charles Lindbergh might have found helpful a little entertainment when he made his world-changing trans-Atlantic flight to Paris’ Le Bourget Airport from Long Island’s Roosevelt Field. That’s 33 ½ hours with nothing but coffee, some sandwiches, his navigation charts and tools – and awake for nearly two days before launching – staying awake repeatedly challenged the Lone Eagle.

No air traffic control to talk with, no VHF broadcasts to hear ... alone with only his thoughts to keep him awake. A little entertainment would have been welcome company to help Lindbergh from his occasional bouts with nodding off.

But when aviation developed further over the years, for decades of aviation’s early history the only person routinely entertained on a long flight sat in the left seat – the pilot in command. With the advent of airborne radios and air traffic control, the closest thing to entertainment aloft existed solely on the flight deck. And while not created for entertainment, at least the new radios gave pilots some way to pass time communicating with others in what really amounts to work: the job of commanding an aircraft on a cross-country flight in weather conditions well short of ideal.

Notice of Requirement NTC91.258 Regarding ADS-B Released by CAA of New Zealand
The New Southern Sky team announced that the highly anticipated revision to Notice of Requirement NTC91.258 regarding ADS-B has now been released by the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand. The revision contains several updates and clarifications. The three main changes are:
  1. Position Source equipment that does not meet the four listed TSO standards is now potentially acceptable as part of an ADS-B system. The equipment still needs to be assessed by the certification team and approved by the director before being able to be used.
  2. Power Requirement clarifications – as per TSO-C112 and ICAO Annex 10 volume IV guidelines, the power requirements for an ADS-B system have now been clearly defined.
  3. Update of message set elements table – in the previous version there were some elements that did not align which caused some confusion. These have now been corrected.

The revision has been released with a Summary of Submissions from the public consultation period, and explanatory notes are also available. Click here for the updated Notice, and here for the Summary of Submissions and Explanatory Notes.

In addition, the CAA also released a draft revision to AC91-24 (ADS-B Systems) for public consultation. Click here. This revision includes a proposed method of approving suitable position source equipment that may potentially be acceptable under the new Notice of Requirement. There are also new and expanded sections drawn from international sources and in response to common queries to the CAA. Please note that this proposal is not active until the final version has been released following the end of the public consultation period on Dec. 18, 2020.
Social Benefits of Drones on Display in COVID-19 Response
The social benefits of unmanned aircraft systems are on display during the COVID-19 response in the United States. While drones are becoming commonplace in construction, energy and other industries, these use cases are often out of sight of the general public. Grant Guillot, partner and UAS team leader at Adams and Reese LLP, said that’s an important difference about the use of drones during the COVID-19 response – a more-visible presence.

“Drones were already transforming various industries prior to COVID-19 through risk-reducing, cost savings, and operational capabilities,” said Guillot, who specializes in legal matters related to UAS operations. “COVID-19 has shed light on just how valuable drones can be, especially when considering social distancing and remote work.” More...

FAA Moving Forward to Enable Safe Integration of Drones
The Federal Aviation Administration published airworthiness criteria for the proposed certification of 10 different unmanned aircraft systems or drones as special class aircraft. This is a crucial step to enabling more complex drone operations beyond what is allowed under the small unmanned aircraft rule (Part 107), including package delivery.

“The development of airworthy, durable, and reliable unmanned aircraft is a crucial step forward for this innovative sector,” said Dr. Michael C. Romanowski, director of Aircraft Certification Service Policy and Innovation. “Type certification will help increase both public and regulatory confidence in drone technology as operations become more advanced.”

The airworthiness criteria provide a level of safety equivalent to that provided by existing airworthiness standards applicable to other categories of aircraft, and establish a defined path to type certification for specific drones. Each applicant seeking a type certificate must follow the FAA’s requirements and safety objectives. More...
View from Washington: What’s in a Name?
Everyone in aviation has essentially grown up with the language of aviation; it is the only language we know. Wings, tails, fuselage, empennage, cockpits, et cetera. We know the language; we know the meaning. It is clear: If you want to be in aviation, you must only use our language. The challenge is the legacy language may not be a perfect fit for the next generation of flight.

How did the occupants in the “front office” get labeled a pilot, a navigator, an engineer? Why not an operator? As flight was being introduced in 1903, the titles from the nautical industry migrated to the infancy of the aviation industry; it is clear that aviation received its titles from ships and the titles of ship pilots, navigators and engineers. More...
Troubleshooting Antennas and Transmission Lines
Most avionics systems receive radio signals, and some transmit as well; therefore, antenna and transmission line troubleshooting skills are important for avionics technicians.

Confirming poor operation is the first thing a technician should do. Whether the technician confirms the problem or not, a good way to continue this process is to take a critical look at the aircraft itself. More than once, I’ve responded to a complaint about a navigation or communication system and discovered the problem as soon as I entered the hangar. In these cases, I observed the antenna was no longer on the airframe. Take a look at the seal at the base of the antenna. The compounds used to seal antenna bases tend to wear away over time. If the seal is damaged or missing, the base of the antenna may be corroded. More...
