EXTREME Ashleigh Heath is taking the radio-controlled aerobatics sport by storm BY RANDY DUFAULT

FOR A GIRL, the challenge of establishing yourself in an area of aviation dominated by men and boys can be difficult and, in some cases, impossible. Early on in life, 19-year-old Ashleigh Heath of Milford, Michigan, accepted that challenge and now is an established expert in the sport of radio-controlled 3D aerobatics. 3D RC | PAGE 4

ADAM WARMOTH EXPRESSED his view of the future very succinctly when he said, “There needs to be a fundamental shift in the way we think about transportation.” Warmoth, Uber Elevate vehicle requirements lead, articulated what that shift looks like Tuesday morning during the inaugural Lindbergh Foundation Innovation Forum at Aviation Gateway Park. Speaking to a standing room-only crowd, Warmoth shared the stage with Dr. Pat Anderson from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and Mike Sennett of Boeing. His presentation was part of the first of three hours filled with talks from leaders of industry and academia regarding the technological shifts now occurring in aviation, along with the shifts that need to occur, and the path to lift the transportation system to its next level, whatever that may be. In a presentation titled “From the Spirit of St. Louis to Avatar,” Pat started by comparing the basic shape of the Spirit with a modern, single-engine airplane. Noting that it takes very little imagination to morph the pictures together after 91 years of technological development,

L-R: Steve Smith, former astronaut; Dr. Susan Ying, president of the International Council of Aeronautical Services; Charles Spinelli of Boeing; and Robert Hannaford of Air Shepherd respond to audience questions at the Lindbergh Innovation Forum on Tuesday.

LINDBERGH PAGE 1 he postulated that future aircraft must change in order to meet up-and-coming transportation needs. “Bolting [new propulsion systems] on to existing airframes is not ideal,” he said. Sennett, a key part of Boeing’s 787 development effort, described the tremendous amount of technological advancement the company poured into the project. A key feature is the complete shift to highpower electrical systems and the elimination of pneumatics as a way to operate every portion of the aircraft. The effort allowed for substantially better control, better monitoring, and better economy. In the process, Boeing learned a tremendous amount about the integration of high-power electrical systems, knowledge that’s valuable for the coming shift to electric propulsion. As Boeing’s vice president for product strategy and future airplane development, Sennett is considering the business cases for how the company can satisfy the expected world need for more than 42,000 new commercial airplanes over the next 20 years. Adam made the case for how Uber expects to shift a portion of the urban mobility problem to the third dimension. Using a model consisting of three-hour blocks of time between full charge cycles, his company believes the service

could truly alter the way people move in the world’s constantly growing cities. Uber is collaborating with a number of aircraft manufacturers to develop Elevate vehicles. According to Warmoth, they are on track to begin service demonstrations in 2020 and make it publicly available in 2023. Topics for the second hour centered on new technologies including batteries, advanced control systems, and 3D printing. The final hour concentrated on the topic of reimagining the aircraft. According to Lindbergh Foundation Chairman John Peterson, today’s forum is the first in a series his organization expects to conduct at aviation events around the world. “We are at this cusp of technology where Moore’s law and computing power has really changed the game in terms of what can actually fly,” said Erik Lindbergh, grandson to Charles Lindbergh who is the namesake of the foundation. “We are at a time when the financial markets are pouring money into [air] taxis for example, and the FAA sees it coming.” He went on to say that EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is an ideal place where the foundation could create the container to really talk about the coming changes, help people come up with new solutions, and bring the right resources to bear. The foundation will post videos of all forum presentations, along with extended interviews of the presenters, on its website: Lindbergh.aero.

DAN MAJKA NAMED CHAIRMAN’S AWARD RECIPIENT BY SAM OLESON

FOR ALL DAN Majka has done to help EAA and promote general aviation, he always makes sure to point out that he hasn’t done it alone. Since starting KidVenture 20 years ago with a small team of volunteers, Dan, EAA Lifetime 90726, has directly and indirectly influenced countless lives. Dan has been named the recipient of the 2018 Chairman’s Award, which honors an individual whose aviation participation and contributions represent the essence of EAA. “I look at it not as myself being selected, I look at it as a tribute to thousands of KidVenture volunteers that have been here over the years,” Dan said. “Every year we have like 450 volunteers. One person could not accomplish this.”

Dan began volunteering with EAA 45 years ago, starting with “grunt” work before moving up the ranks. In 1997, he became an EAA board member and the next year he was part of the team that developed KidVenture, which has been his primary focus for the past two decades. As a teacher for 34 years, Dan has a special connection to educating children and that’s what he loves to see happen at KidVenture. “I always enjoyed seeing the excitement in kids’ eyes when they learned something,” he said. “When I was asked by [former EAA President] Tom Poberezny to come up with this plan for KidVenture so that we could inspire the next generation, it fit right up my alley. My success and the reward that I get is

not through awards and stuff like that, it’s through seeing the excitement in a kid’s eyes. A lot of my past attendees are now my volunteers. They see the value in it and they’re contributing back, which shows we’ve really accomplished something.” Dan’s goal from the beginning was to help get kids interested in aviation and there’s no question he’s done that. “The first year [of KidVenture] we had 50 volunteers from my chapter who were helping us. We were expecting 500 kids, literally — 2,000 showed up the first year. Last year, we had about 21,000 kids go through. That’s how we’ve grown exponentially,” Dan said. “KidVenture is about offering kids the exposure to things they might not have elsewhere.”

Dan Majka

Dan will be presented with the Chairman’s Award at the EAA Annual Membership Meeting today at 8:30 a.m. at Theater in the Woods.

3D RC PAGE 1 Flying RC 3D aerobatics is similar to fullscale aircraft operations in that it includes traditional maneuvers that appear in many aerobatic routines. Where it differs is with the tricks a human-occupied craft will find impossible to do because of the limits of the aircraft or the limits of the human. “[Our RC planes] have very high power to weight ratios so they are able to perform very intense maneuvers as well as slow, low g things like all the high alpha stuff that we do,” Ashleigh said. Typical routines include hovering the model on its prop and transitioning to other tricks with names like rolling harrier, pop top, crankshaft, and no name. “We’ve had some full-scale pilots come and ask us how we do what we do. Pretty funny,” she added. Ashleigh will fly a routine during Twilight Flight Fest Thursday and Friday. The show, located in the Fun Fly Zone, starts at 8 p.m. each night. For the routine, Ashleigh is flying a 35 percent scale Yak-54 model with a two-cylinder, two-stroke, 120-cc engine. Even though it is a model, it is still quite a large airplane with a wingspan in excess of 9 feet.

Twilight Flight Fest returns to the Fun Fly Zone on Thursday and Friday nights.

“If you get into the 40 percent or 50 percent size range, those planes get up to about 50 pounds and can be harder to control,” Ashleigh said. “Thirty-five percent scale is really the sweet spot where you can do all the maneuvers without a problem.”

Her interest in aviation started with flights in the family Cessna 172. An RC flight simulator called RealFlight helped her learn how to control a model and, at age 11, an easy-to-repair foam Super Cub RC replica helped her transition out of the virtual world.

3D aerobatics came into the picture through a girl who is a 3D RC flyer and who Ashleigh met in a multiplayer feature of RealFlight. An offer to meet up at a large RC event and fly a 3D-capable airplane when Ashleigh was 13 sealed the deal. Developing a competitive 3D routine is a lengthy process. It starts with creating a mix of music and planning a matching set of maneuvers. “I start with the simulator,” Ashleigh said. “That helps to get the muscle memory down and helps develop a freestyle routine to the music. When you think you know what you are doing, you take it out to the field and practice, practice, practice, practice.” Ashleigh just finished her first year in the aerospace engineering program at Western Michigan University. When asked what career aspect of aerospace interests her the most, she immediately went to what she knows best. “I’ve thought about going into something with drones because that is what I am familiar with, because of how much they have been progressing over the last couple of years, and how important I think that they are going to be in the future.”

EAA’S HIGHEST HONOR, the Freedom of Flight Award, will be presented to Andrew Barker, EAA 309420, and Robert Hamilton, EAA 712650, today during the EAA annual membership meeting at 8:30 a.m. in Theater in the Woods. Andrew is the CEO and owner of TruTrak Flight Systems, and Robert is the president of Dynon Avionics. EAA CEO and Chairman of the Board Jack J. Pelton said both companies have taken risks to help introduce STCs that are good for all of general aviation. “They’re always unbelievable people who win this award, but what these two have done the last two years collaboratively with EAA to get the STC done on the Dynon EFS D10A/D100 and to also get the TruTrak Vizion autopilot into an STC that we hold for the certified world is breakthrough stuff,” Jack said. “This is the kind of stuff that general aviation pilots yearn for: lowcost, safety-enhancing equipment.” As someone who grew up with the space age, Robert said being in the company of a certain other Freedom of Flight award-winner was an honor for him. “I was incredibly honored, and also a little bit humbled,” Robert said. “Anytime you can be on the same list as Neil Armstrong, that’s an incredible honor.” Andrew said his goal with TruTrak was to change general aviation for the better, so the recognition of the Freedom of Flight award aligns perfectly with his own goals. “I personally think it is exactly what I wanted to do with TruTrak,” Andrew said. “It was one of the reasons I wanted to take over the company and get the autopilot certified, was to be able to contribute. For that contribution to be recognized, I think, is exactly what I wanted to see happen with TruTrak.”

Andrew Barker

Robert Hamilton

Both recipients of the 2018 Freedom of Flight Award spoke highly of each other, and Robert said he knew right away that Andrew would be the other winner when he heard there were two. “My first thought was oh, I bet you I know who the other person was,” Robert said. “And I was absolutely right, it was Andrew. He totally deserves it. He’s been working just as hard, pushing the envelope, and doing new things. Both of us are in the same business trying to take modern technology and make it affordable.”

Jessy Panzer Makes AirVenture Debut Aerobatic pilot performs afternoon air shows in rebuilt Pitts Special BY MEGAN ESAU

JESSY PANZER, EAA 641360, performed in front of EAA crowds for the first time during the Monday afternoon air show in her recently rebuilt Pitts Special. “I like to call it an S-1M because it’s kind of a mutant,” Jessy said with a laugh. “I say that with all the love in my heart. It’s a one-off. It’s a Rich Bastian-built airplane, and he was the wolf of his day.” The Pitts was built in 1980, and within five years of being built its first owner sold it to Harry Barr, who would eventually become Jessy’s mentor in aviation and aerobatics. Harry sold the airplane after about 10 years, and it changed hands among friends and acquaintances until, after Harry and Jessy met, Harry convinced her to buy the airplane. “This airplane, barring the first owner specifically, has been basically in the family its whole life,” Jessy said, referring to the community of aviators in and around Lincoln, Nebraska. “I didn’t want another biplane, and they said just go fly it, and the first flight, it was just like falling in love. … I instantly knew. I came back, I landed, and I said okay I’ll buy this airplane. I just instantly felt so good, and it flew so good, and it had good horsepower. It was just a performer.”

“This is the pinnacle, it’s the show and the place that everybody wants to be at and everybody wants to participate.” – Jessy Panzer The Pitts was rebuilt from the ground up in 2012-2013, with Jessy doing a bit of hands-on work with the engine overhaul shop and enlisting friends to do the finish work and painting. Jessy’s routine at AirVenture starts off with an inverted flat spin.

“The number of the turns varies a little bit depending on the performance that day, which is kind of fun, so the crowd gets to count them and tell me how many I did that day,” Jessy said. She also performs a double avalanche, a double hammerhead, and a torque roll, among other maneuvers, reaching +6/-2g

during the show. Jessy said she is absolutely ecstatic to be flying at Oshkosh for the first time. “This is the pinnacle,” Jessy said. “It’s the show and the place that everybody wants to be at and everybody wants to participate, because everybody who comes here appreciates what they’re seeing and what it takes to get here. It doesn’t take months to get here; it takes years and a lifetime sometimes to make it happen. So when you do get here, it is so special.”

YOUNG EAGLES VOLUNTEERS AWARDED FOR THEIR PASSION, DEDICATION BY BARBARA A. SCHMITZ

THEY COME FROM different parts of the country, but they share a similar passion. They are EAA volunteers with a commitment to get youths interested in aviation through EAA’s Young Eagles program. Founded in 1992, Young Eagles and its network of volunteers have given more than 2.1 million youths ages 8-17 a free airplane ride. A few of those volunteers will be recognized tonight at the EAA Aviation Museum. “The Young Eagles program is the world’s most successful youth aviation program due to the dedication and support of the volunteers,” said Michelle Kunes, EAA Young Eagles program coordinator.

CHAPTER YOUNG EAGLES COORDINATOR: TOM HOLT

YOUNG EAGLES HORIZON AWARD: JIM HANTSCHEL

PHILLIPS 66 LEADERSHIP AWARD: JOSEPH CORAGGIO

TOM HOLT, EAA 624355, Chapter 58 coordinator of Layton, Utah, plans and schedules four or five Young Eagles rallies annually in northern Utah, working to promote the events with the media, or through schools, scouting, or other children’s groups. He also makes sure things on the ground run smoothly, and occasionally flies Young Eagles himself when other pilots aren’t available. According to the nomination papers, Holt has the rallies so well scripted that all volunteers are part of the success. Holt has also helped to grow the number of pilots participating in the chapter’s Young Eagles program, and as the number of pilots has increased, so has the chapter’s Young Eagles credits, which has allowed the chapter to offer scholarships to Young Eagles for attending EAA’s Air Academy.

JIM HANTSCHEL, EAA 230426, of Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, said Chapter 838’s ground school helps set its program apart. It’s often taught by Aviation Explorer Post 218 members, and no one gets a flight until they learn about flying and aviation. A former chapter treasurer who is now a board member, Hantschel said he was “shamed” into volunteering for Young Eagles about nine years ago when he showed up to watch a rally and chapter member Sam Johnson, of SC Johnson, was the only pilot flying kids. “Too many pilots have too many excuses — they are too tired, they have no time, or they are too broke,” Hantschel said. “I vowed after that to be involved.” The aha moments, when kids get really excited, make all the work worth it. “Those who think it is the greatest thing ever are the ones who get you excited,” Hantschel said.

JOSEPH CORAGGIO, EAA 563242, of Glendale, Arizona, is a former Young Eagle who now flies Young Eagles, and he also goes the extra step and mentors those with the passion. In addition, Coraggio coordinates the Young Eagles rally held annually in Mitchell, South Dakota, right before the start of the AirVenture Cup Race. This year, 92 youths got a free airplane ride at the rally, while more than 2,265 pedestrians came through the airport and learned about aviation and Young Eagles. Coraggio said he works to bridge that gap between the Young Eagles ride and the path needed for someone to get their pilot certificate. That means he’s written Young Eagles letters of recommendation for colleges or scholarship opportunities, or at times even helped with the application process. “I can’t imagine my life without the Young Eagles program in it,” he said. “I’m trying my best to pay it back.”

Drone Light Show Added to Night Performance Lineup Months of planning has gone into dazzling light displays and choreography BY BARBARA A. SCHMITZ

THESE DAYS DRONES are used to deliver pizza and packages, and aid in search and rescue operations. And at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018, they’ll be used to entertain. Sixty drones will take part in the night air show, said Matt Quinn, flight director for Great Lakes Drone Co., and those drones will take up a big part of the sky — about 50-200 feet in the air, and about a football field across. The FAA approved Great Lakes Drone Co. to conduct drone light shows in March 2017. Since then, their shows have slowly been getting bigger and better, Quinn said. “We’re constantly working on improving the technology; there is no cookbook formula on how to do a drone light show, so we’re innovating and trying to figure it out ourselves.” How much time goes into creating such a show? “Lots,” Quinn said. To do the choreographing, they hire consultants to help tell the story each client wants to tell. AirVenture’s story is about the history of flight, patriotism, and the

abstract, all wrapped into one. Shows with 100 drones can easily take two months to program, he said. From there, they create a wire frame and do a video simulation of what the show will look like. On top of that, they also need to coordinate their show with the client and the FAA. Quinn said they try to do as much work as possible in advance. So that means days before, they are setting up

their grid and spray painting it on the ground, and doing all their compass calibrations and communications checks. “There are a lot of logistics and timing we have to work through, like where the B-1 will be taking off. We can’t set up until it’s gone, or otherwise, he’ll just blow us away,” Quinn said. Katie Gilmore, a drone pilot and Great Lakes regulatory and logistics director, said the EAA show has been

more challenging than usual since they have to coordinate the crew from multiple locations. “But we’ve brought in the best-of-the-best (drone) pilots … they are all top-notch pilots who are also familiar with general aviation,” she said. Eleven staff people are working AirVenture. “There are a lot of things to watch and monitor,” Quinn said. “For instance, suppose the drones take off and suddenly birds start coming toward the flight path. We have to step in and do something.”

PILOT OF EMERGENCY SOUTHWEST FLIGHT TO SPEAK AT AIRVENTURE Tammie Jo Shults will share her story during WomenVenture BY MEGAN ESAU

NOW STC APPROVED FOR: CESSNA 172, 175, 177, 180, 182, & 185 PIPER PA-28 & PA-32 For more information visit: trutrakap.com 479-751-0250 custserv@trutrakap.com

TAMMIE JO SHULTS, EAA 1168555 and captain of Southwest Flight 1380 that made an emergency landing in April after one of the Boeing 737’s engines exploded, will share her story as part of the Celebrating Powerful Pilots program today at 6 p.m. at Theater in the Woods. After the engine on Flight 1380 blew apart, sending debris through a window and causing rapid depressurization, Shults and first officer Darren Ellisor worked together to make a safe landing in Philadelphia. “I flew and talked, and he took care of systems and checklists and was always available to the flight attendants so we could find out what had happened back there,” Shults said. “We could see a little bit of what happened from the cockpit and our engine indications, but we certainly didn’t know the extent of what had gone on, so it was good to hear that, and also to let the flight attendants know that they could [let] the passengers know we were not going down, we were going into Philly.”

Tammie Jo Shults and her husband, Dean.

Shults first became enamored with aviation as a young girl, through reading aviation books and watching military planes fly over her family’s New Mexico ranch, which was used as a reference point for the planes’ dogfighting exercises. “I wanted to fly no matter what avenue,” she said. “I didn’t have the means to buy the books, let alone the lessons, so

“I think women getting into aviation opens up whatever percentage of the population we are, so that we get the best pilots. Not just the best guy pilots, but the best pilots.” — Tammie Jo Shults Shults and Ellisor had only flown together once before, and that day was the first time she had met any of the flight attendants — a testament to Shults’ leadership abilities, which she said were developed from witnessing a few excellent examples of servant leadership in her aviation career. “Getting together and having a cup of coffee and getting our day started with some conversation I think helped a lot in being able to not only communicate, but trust each other when times were really very precarious, and it was hard to hear,” Shults said. “It was definitely a rough ride.”

after I finally figured out that there was a way to get into the military to fly, I went the only route, the only military that would let me apply, which was the Navy.” Being among the first female fighter pilots in the U.S. military after completing her training at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Shults said she has faced her share of adversity. However, she said she uses the challenges she faced to better her abilities. She said the message to young women who want to get into aviation should be that they are well equipped with the skills needed to fly, such as multitasking

and compartmentalization. But, she said, they also need to be willing to work hard. “I think, first and foremost, not everybody can do everything,” Shults said. “I think it still needs to be, and always should be, merit based. That’s what I fought and wished for when I was going through — that the person that did the best at something got to progress in that. I think women getting into aviation opens up whatever percentage of the population we are, so that we get the best pilots. Not just the best guy pilots, but the best pilots.” This will be Shults’ second time attending AirVenture. Her husband and son typically come without her while she stays home for her scheduled Southwest checkride. The Celebrating Powerful Pilots program is part of the 2018 WomenVenture activities at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Shults will be joined by Heather Penney, one of the F-16 pilots who was scrambled to intercept United Airlines Flight 93 on 9/11; Lt. Gen. Stayce Harris, inspector general of the U.S. Air Force; and Capt. Jessica Hodson, a KC-10 instructor pilot in the Air Force Reserve who will fly into AirVenture with her all-female crew. The evening will be emceed by Lt. Col. Olga Custodio, the first female Hispanic military pilot in the U.S.

Acro Sport Celebrates 45 Years EAA founder’s homebuilt design remembered BY MEGAN ESAU

A SMALL GATHERING of just under 10 Acro Sports will help celebrate the 45th anniversary of the small, aerobatic biplane at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, where the type has a deep connection. The same year the International Aerobatic Club (IAC) was established as a division of the organization in 1971, EAA founder Paul Poberezny began designing a

new airplane that not only could be built by high school students in industrial arts classes across the country, but that would also fit his aerobatic interests. “The only other airplane that was really available in plans form at that time was the Pitts Special, and he wanted to offer an alternative too that was a little bit easier to handle, easier to fly,” said IAC’s

historian Mike Heuer. “At first, he thought he could go with some modifications to the EAA Biplane, which had been around since the ’50s, but he decided on a clean design and really ended up starting from scratch.” Paul designed the Acro Sport as a plansbuilt, sturdy, single-seat biplane with a 180-hp Lycoming engine. Built with a steel-tube fuselage, spruce wings, and Cubstyle landing gear, Mike said the airplane came in at approximately 800 pounds empty. It was also basic with few instruments and no electrical system. “Unfortunately, it never gained the popularity that the Pitts did,” Mike said. But, being Paul’s eighth design, the Acro Sport, and its successor, the Super Acro Sport, are undoubtedly a part of the fabric of EAA’s history. “All of Paul’s designs contributed to the promotion of the homebuilt movement,” Mike said. “There wasn’t anybody back then or even today that enjoyed more respect in the sport aviation community than Paul. … He wasn’t just some executive off the street. He not only talked the talk, but he walked the walk. He built this organization from scratch, but he also flew and he designed and built airplanes.” A forum about the Acro Sport and Acro II will take place today at 10 a.m. at the Aeroplane Workshop. The Super Acro Sport prototype Paul built with EAA staff in the 1970s will be brought to AirVenture by its current owner, Mort Robinson, EAA 1233654, of Port Townsend, Washington.

NTSB Tackles LOC at Historic Forum Safety experts address aviation’s most persistent safety problem BY JAMES WYNBRANDT

THE NTSB BROUGHT its General Aviation Safety Road Show to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 on Tuesday, hosting a forum on loss of control (LOC) in flight, an unwanted fixture on the agency’s most wanted list of safety improvements. “Almost half of the fatalities (in aviation) are due to loss of control,” NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said in welcoming attendees to the forum. “That’s why we’re having the first ever road show right here at Oshkosh.” Bringing together more than half a dozen safety experts, the forum addressed technologies, training, education, and other potential solutions to the LOC epidemic. “People are always quick to blame the pilot in every crash, but I think [LOC] is a training system error,” aerobatic superstar Patty Wagstaff said in the keynote address. She cited endemic lack of stick and rudder and upset recovery training as accident factors. “The good news is, we don’t need more regulations, we don’t need a lot of acronyms, or a degree in theoretical physics” to fix the problem, she said, but simply better initial and recurrency training. A panel discussion moderated by Tim LeBaron, NTSB deputy director for regional operations, highlighted current efforts and evolving solutions to reducing LOC accidents. Sean Elliott, EAA’s vice president of advocacy and safety, cited the benefits of the “culture of safe operations” the association fosters through its chapters and their activities as helping mitigate LOC. NTSB board member Earl Weener underscored the work being done at the General Aviation Joint Steering (GAJSC) Committee, which EAA co-chairs, to combat LOC. This includes promoting safety-enhancing technologies like angle of attack (AOA) indicators, and policy

and regulatory changes that hasten their installation in GA cockpits. Richard McSpadden, executive director of AOPA Air Safety Institute, and the FAA’s Corey Stephens pointed to the online training aids that address LOC, which their organizations provide as helpful resources in the battle against LOC. Jim Higgins of the University of North Dakota noted that all the school’s CFI candidates go through stall-spin training, though it’s not otherwise required by the aviation program. In follow-on presentations, Mike Folkerts, an NTSB, air safety investigator discussed the role of professionalism in LOC accidents, and Nicholas Webster, a medical officer with the NTSB Office of Research & Engineering, highlighted physiological issues contributing to LOC. However, the consensus of forum participants was that the best answer to

preventing LOC accidents is in-cockpit upset recovery training. LeBaron noted that the NTSB is now having all of its accident investigators take such instruction. “We think it’s important to have that kind of training,” LeBaron said.

AEROBATICS AND LOC Wagstaff, who gave the keynote speech at the NTSB’s Loss of Control forum, is performing in her Extra 300S in the afternoon air shows today and Friday. She said that pilots can “learn about angle of attack and energy management,” which are critical in LOC situations, by watching air show routines. Aerobatic pilots put themselves in some very unusual attitudes, yet have no problem recovering. “People realize we’re not out of control,” Wagstaff said. But these maneuvers aren’t necessary for standard upset recovery training. “We’re professionals,” she added. “Don’t try it at home.”

FAITH TECHNOLOGIES IS using EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 as the debut venue for its microgrid, a new, movable energy source that can provide industrial levels of power at remote locations. In just a few years the Menasha, Wisconsin, company has grown from a regional electrical contractor into a national provider of innovative energy solutions. The mobile microgrid can serve “mission-critical government buildings, military operations, telecommunications, off-the-grid locations, and businesses affected by natural disasters or power outages,” said Jeff Kaufman, Faith’s strategic account leader. With its relatively small size, a mobile microgrid can be transported wherever needed, and several mobile microgrids can be tied together to create a larger power source if necessary. The unit on exhibit at AirVenture is a solar-powered microgrid that automatically deploys from a standard 20-foot shipping container; wind or other energy sources can also be harnessed to power a microgrid. As one example of its

7/18/18 2:31 PM

versatility, after a chance encounter here with the SureFly team, the microgrid supplied the power to recharge the innovative multicopter’s batteries. “I literally ran into them at Boeing Plaza, and everything spawned from there,” said Jeff. Once the microgrid was hooked up to SureFly, “They were watching the [batteries’] power consumption, and the microgrid was feeding it faster” than a traditional electrical power source provides, he said. As for the cost, “I think people will be surprised at the affordability,” said Jeff. “Right now and for the foreseeable future, states and utilities are offering a lot of incentives for individuals to provide their own power, especially in areas where the grid as we know it is rather suspect.” Though the company is exhibiting h e r e f o r t h e f i r s t t i m e, Fa i t h Technologies (Main Aircraft Display, Booth 477A) has been associated with the fly-in for “well over 30 years,” as a prime power provider vendor for all the exhibitors, said Jeff. He was formerly the EAA’s director of business development for a dozen years.

Around the World With EAA

International Visitors Tent unites convention visitors from across the globe BY LAURA BECK

ENGLISH IS MORE than likely not the first language you will hear at the International Visitors Tent at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. It is the common language, but for the thousands of foreign visitors to Oshkosh there is more than likely someone at the tent who speaks their language. Volunteers are fluent in up to 10 languages other than English. Volunteer Javiera Molina, 17, is from Santiago, Chile, and speaks Spanish and English. She has been coming to the Oshkosh convention for three years with her father. The first year she could not speak English, but now she’s fluent and officially volunteering for the first time. “I like helping people,” Javiera said. She will be helping at the tent all week. The International Visitors Tent is a meeting place for foreign guests, according to fourth-year tent volunteer Anthony Spain. Anthony hails from Richmond, Australia (northwest of Sydney), and has been coming to the Oshkosh convention for 25 years.

“Throughout the week it becomes a real friendship center.” –Anthony Spain

“Throughout the week it becomes a real friendship center,” Anthony said. The center promotes the vision of bringing like-minded people together who are focused on aviation, he said, with grassroots at the very core.

Bill Babb, Anthony Spain, and Adrian Heinrich reunite at the International Visitors Tent.

“It acts as a focal point, it brings people together,” Anthony said. Practical needs of visitors are also met: there are computers with internet access, dry-erase message boards, and lots of cool drinks and sturdy seats for guests. There is also a board where visitors are encouraged to write their home country and the number of people they are with. Volunteers help guests with accommodation issues, passport problems, and health issues, and they have even helped parents find children who wandered off. The center sponsors a barbecue, which more than 2,000 people attended last year, Anthony said. They also expect hundreds of people will participate in the international visitors parade Friday night, he said.

Australian Bill Babb, 93, was so anxious to see his friends at the center that he arrived to get hugs from Anthony and his wife before the tent was even officially open. The retired radio navigation aid calibrator is at Oshkosh for his 29th convention. “I’m loving every minute,” Bill said with a grin. He saw a story about the Oshkosh convention 30 years ago in a magazine and booked his trip. Before he leaves his lodging at the local university each year, he books a room for next year.

MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER Steven Robinson electrified a rapt Theater in the Woods audience with his inspirational presentat i o n , “A n y t h i n g I s Possible,” on Tuesday. Admitting off the bat “You can’t run a mile in 20 seconds, you can’t live forever, and you can’t fly by flapping your arms,” nonetheless, Steven told the crowd, anyone can achieve goals that seem impossible “if you’ve got drive and determination.” To prove the point he asked, “Who would have thought it’s possible to build a full-size aircraft and fly it, and live to tell the tale?” But perhaps the best example of his credo is Steven’s own life. Coming from a disadvantaged, working class background in Leeds in the United Kingdom, PHOTO BY MARIANO ROSALES Steven lost his right arm in a motorcycle accident Steve Robinson at age 18, and with it, much of his prospects for employment in any of the vocational fields his education and station prepared him for. With door after door closed, he determined instead to pursue endeavors he enjoyed, and to confront those that he feared — like horses and flying. “I had no interest in aviation. I was afraid of flying,” Steven said before his presentation. “It took me three weeks of therapy to visit friends in Spain.” But he liked tinkering with mechanical things and computers, leading him to create a thriving business restoring vintage jukeboxes and old slot machines — the latter, he noted with irony, nicknamed one-armed bandits.

ROBINSON PAGE 24 Steven enrolled at Leeds Metropolitan University, studying computer science, and graduated first in his class with honors. Meanwhile, he took riding lessons to overcome his equine phobia and now competes in dressage. His conquest of his fear of flying has been even more dramatic, and it began when he saw an advert for free flight lessons sponsored by Flying Scholarships for Disabled People, a U.K. charity funded by Prince Faisal of Jordan. He earned a training slot, but the prosthetic arm the National Health Service made for him wasn’t capable of grasping and maneuvering the aircraft’s stick with sufficient dexterity. So, Steven did what some might consider impossible: He designed his own prosthetic arm, enabling him to operate an aircraft and earn his pilot’s license. His exploits made Steven a media sensation in the United Kingdom, and he began spreading his gospel of accomplishing the impossible. But when a popular U.K. television program, This

Time Next Year, challenged him to fly aerobatics, he refused. “I said I don’t like aerobatics. They said, ‘Aren’t you a motivational speaker?’ I realized I’d backed myself into a corner.” Another complication: His prosthetic limb couldn’t handle the g-forces imposed by aerobatics. But goaded by producers to live up to his credo, Steven found a 3D printing company that could make a lightweight limb out of nylon, and accepted the challenge. “It was every emotion at once,” Steven said of his first aerobatic flight. “I was terrified. I was elated that I did it. It was amazing.” Now Steven flies a two-seat Robin 2160 “on average two to three times a week” from the Sherburn Aero Club in York, often performing aerobatics. Meanwhile, just as he’s inspired crowds here at Oshkosh, the fly-in has inspired him with another goal: “The next thing, I’d like to build my own aircraft,” he said. “I’d like to learn to do the fabric and the welding — like they teach here.”

RACHEL CONKLIN’S FIRST experience with aviation started out a bit rough. When she was 13 years old her father promised her an airplane and a glider ride — the glider ride came first. As she was being strapped in, she was so scared that she started crying. Then the tow started, and the plane lifted off. Rachel said within 100 feet her face was inches from the window, looking out. “I was mesmerized, and I fell in love right away; I couldn’t get enough of it,” Rachel said. Rachel, who is from Washingtonville, New York, is the recipient of the WomenVenture Flight Training Scholarship, which will be formally presented to her today at 11:30 a.m. at the WomenVenture Power Lunch. Rachel, 26, currently holds her private pilot certificate, which she earned when she was 17. She earned her private glider certificate at age 14. Rachel is partway through her instrument rating; she picked her training back up after a hiatus due to school and work. After obtaining her private ticket, Rachel left for college at the State University of New York at Fredonia where she studied violin performance. She graduated and began her career in music. She continued to fly, although she did not move forward with obtaining advanced ratings. She said she now has more flexibility with work to pursue her dream of flying. “It’s the right time for me personally,” Rachel said. Rachel currently teaches private violin lessons part time, is in three regional orchestras, and also works at the Wurtsboro-Sullivan County Airport. She said she’s very happy and excited to receive the $5,000 scholarship since all of her jobs are part time, and the extra

financial help will help her finish her instrument rating. The scholarship is part of an EAA initiative to help women pursue flight interests and remain active and involved in aviation. Part of the selection criteria is that the applicant be determined and focused, with a clear passion and enthusiasm for aviation. Rachel wants to get all of her ratings and pursue a career flying professionally. She said she’s not sure if she will work for an airline or in some other area, but she definitely wants to be flying for a living. “I love flying,” Rachel said, “I want to see where it can take me. I don’t want to limit myself.”

DeltaHawk’s engine uses diesel technology to burn Jet A fuel, which is available worldwide, at up to 40 percent more fuel efficiency than a gasoline engine. “It’s a really big deal in other parts of the country where avgas is about $15 a gallon right now,” said Dennis Webb, CEO of DeltaHawk which is based in Racine, Wisconsin. “But even here it’s important.” The DH180A4 is the antithesis of the qualities people typically associate with diesel, such as heavy and noisy. “The key for aviation is lightweight and compact,” Webb, EAA 1089093, said. “To make a successful aviation diesel, you have to be able to figure out how to do that, and then you add to that the reliability concerns and the FAA regulation concerns.” Compared to a traditional gasoline/avgas engine, the DH180A4 is smaller, rounder, and has a small aerodynamic profile. “So we have a lot less drag, and it looks cooler,” Webb said. “The front end of most propeller aircraft are kind of blocky with big holes for the engine; ours looks more like a turboprop.”

The DH180A4 has a fuel burn of 10.4 gph at 180 hp and is expected to be certified by the FAA in 2019. Webb said another edge DeltaHawk has over the competition is that its engine was purpose-built for aviation, rather than being an automotive or likewise conversion. “This was designed by pilots for pilots to be very reliable, very easy to maintain, and to have a long life,” Webb said. “Besides what we’re trying to do from a reliability and a performance standpoint, we’re really focused on lower weight and lower cost, and I think the aviation community will be pleasantly surprised when it’s released where we are pricewise compared to competitors.”

B-26K is a No-Nonsense Beauty Douglas A-26 Invader morphed into valued B-26K Counter Invader BY FREDERICK A. JOHNSEN

IT’S A BIT like a Corvette customized as an off-road vehicle. Sleek, but also beefy and hardy enough for jungle warfare from less-than-perfect airstrips. The ever-glamorous Douglas A-26 Invader became the muscular B-26K Counter Invader seen at AirVenture 2018 as the ultimate iteration of this bomber that survived three wars. A team of restorers and crew members of the B-26K described the bomber at this year’s first Warbirds in Review session. It is the pride of the Fort

Worth-based Vintage Flying Museum. Resonating throughout their panel discussion were two themes. The restoration of one of only 40 B-26Ks serves as a tangible way to honor veterans of the war in Southeast Asia and “bring those guys home,” as team member Scott Carlson explained. The restoration also serves as a magnet to attract young people into the world of historic aircraft restoration and operation. Restoration chief J.R. Hoffman reminded the audience that these icons

require the next generation to keep them flying. The Douglas A-26 Invader was an inspired design from the team of Ed Heinemann. Serving in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, original Invaders were fast and capable. But wear and tear caught up with them. Two Invaders were lost in 1963 and ’64 when their wings failed. On Mark Engineering at Van Nuys, California, had a fix for the problem. On Mark already had a reputation for turning surplus A-26s into plush, fast executive

aircraft. The company’s bag of tricks included wing strengthening, along with tip tanks for added fuel and broad paddle props for performance. The eight underwing pylons of the strengthened B-26K could carry a total of four tons of weaponry. Counter Invaders served the U.S. Air Force in Southeast Asia from 1966-69. Rebuilding this B-26K, nicknamed Special Kay, required about $900,000 and the talents of 65 volunteers. Starting in May 2010, the team initially retrieved two garbage cans’ worth of bird nests and debris

from the airframe that had been parked in Montana for many years. Retired Air Force Col. Tim Black, who is scheduled to fly Special Kay at AirVenture, flew these aircraft from Nakhon Phanom air base in Thailand in 1969. He told the audience, “By the time you got gear up and flaps up and made a turn you were over the Ho Chi Minh Trail.” This was the nocturnal hunting ground for the B-26K crews. Flaredropping spotter aircraft helped locate

targets on the busy military route, and the bomber crews, known as Nimrods, made their attacks. They wore black flight suits in their nocturnal flying environment and carried little more than military identification with them. Unofficial patches that said things like “Laotian Highway Patrol” might have caused problems had any of the men been captured with them.

The Nimrod crews often started at about 7,000-8,000 feet above ground level, avoiding mountainous terrain thanks to careful navigation plotting by fliers like Bruce Gustafson, who flew with Black in Southeast Asia and will do so again at AirVenture. In addition to the mountains, antiaircraft fire was a constant danger along the trail. The B-26K at AirVenture tells a tale of bravery and resourcefulness with its pugnacious appearance.

BOEING FORECASTS UNPRECEDENTED 20-YEAR PILOT DEMAND ON MONDAY, BOEING on Monday released its 2018 Pilot and Technician Outlook at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, and projects a demand for 790,000 pilots over the next 20 years — the most significant demand in the outlook’s nine-year history and double the current workforce. While this year’s outlook includes data from the business aviation and civil helicopter sectors for the first time, the commercial airplane pilot forecast alone has caused the outlook’s rise to an unprecedented high. The demand expected between now and 2037 is being driven by an anticipated doubling of the global commercial airplane fleet — as reported by Boeing’s Commercial Market Outlook —as well as ongoing record-high air travel demand and a tightening labor supply. “Despite strong global air traffic growth, the aviation industry continues to face a pilot labor supply challenge, raising concern about the existence of a global pilot shortage in the near-term,” said Keith Cooper, vice president of training and professional services for Boeing Global Services. “An emphasis on developing the next generation of pilots is key to help mitigate this. With a network of training campuses and relationships with flight schools around the globe, Boeing partners with customers, governments, and educational institutions to help ensure the market is ready to meet this significant pilot demand.” Boeing also offers the Pilot Development Program, an accelerated training program to guide pilots from early stage ab-initio training through type rating as a first officer for commercial jet transport operations. These solutions help operators secure qualified first officers to meet their growing pilot needs. In addition, Boeing offers solutions to help operators improve their crew efficiency with tools that help optimize the use of each crew member and ensure minimal disruption to operations. Despite the commercial pilot demand forecast holding nearly steady, maintenance technician demand decreased slightly from 648,000 to 622,000, primarily due to longer maintenance intervals for new aircraft. Collectively, the business aviation and civil helicopter sectors will demand an additional 155,000 pilots and 132,000 technicians. Demand for commercial cabin crew increased slightly (from 839,000 to 858,000) due to changes in fleet mix, regulatory requirements, denser seat configurations and multicabin configurations that offer more personalized service. In addition, 32,000 new cabin crew will be required to support business aviation.

Innegra Teaches Composite Work to Attendees See live demonstrations at tent all week BY TI WINDISCH

REPRESENTATIVES FROM INNEGRA Technologies are teaching EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 attendees about working with their product in composites at the Innegra tent, located directly behind the Replica Fighters building on the grounds. Innegra Director of Business Development Jen Hanna said the company’s chief composites engineer, Russ Emanis, EAA 837740, always gives demonstrations all week in Oshkosh, bringing attendees through the complete process of engineering composite parts. “He’s been doing this for several years,” Hanna said. “He comes and puts on demos to help people learn a little more about advanced composites. There’s a lot to learn and he’s been in the industry for 40 years. We make a highperformance fiber that goes into composite material to help for impact resistance, lighter weight, and it prevents fracture propagation.” As Emanis educated onlookers about the process of making correct composite parts, Hanna explained that Innegra’s

product pairs with carbon to make a stronger composite. “Innegra combines with carbon to help increase the performance by making it not such a safety risk,” Hanna said. “Every year Russ puts on these demos he’s building something: a float, a wing, a fuselage. And he’s using carbon and Innegra in these parts just to show how to work with it because it’s a little bit of a different material. It doesn’t have the properties of carbon, it doesn’t process exactly like carbon, and he knows all the tricks.” AirVenture attendees who get out to the Innegra tent every day can watch the raw materials involved go all the way through the process into being completed parts, but Hanna said it’s perfectly fine for folks to drop in at any time to pick up some of the process. “The whole purpose of him being here is for education and to help people understand, even if they don’t plan on building something, to understand how it’s built,” Hanna said. “It’s always kind of a cool concept to be flying in a plane and understand how it’s built.”

The Sky Has No Limits 2018 Able Flight scholarships awarded to six passionate aviators BY LAURA BECK

THE ABLE FLIGHT scholarships of 2018 were awarded on Tuesday to six people with various backgrounds, united by a love of flying and a strong desire to challenge themselves despite various disabilities. When Rob Shardy got the call that he had received the scholarship he said, “I stopped breathing.” The Canton, Ohio, resident said he’s happy to be part of the Able Flight Class of 2018. “It took me a second to collect myself to just say thank you,” he said. Rob, 46, was paralyzed in a 2013 car crash. He said he’s loved flying “forever,” but before his accident there just never seemed to be the time or money to pursue his dream. He loved Star Wars as a kid and had a great uncle who was a Navy pilot on the USS Midway.

$100 PER TICKET

Rob joined four of his classmates — Kory Puderbaugh, Julia Velasquez, Asher Kirschbaum, and Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bartlett — at Theater in the

ceremony, as all earned their sport pilot certificates through the scholarship program. The scholarship provides flight training and ground school in an intensive six- to seven-week course, said Charles Stites, founder of Able Flight. Able Flight works with Purdue University and Ohio State University to provide training. The class flies in the morning and evening and does ground school during the day, he said. Asher, 23, is deaf. He taught his CFI sign language and instructor Andrew Geers taught him to fly. “I love learning new things,” Asher said. He joined his classmates in saying that without the scholarship, he would likely not be able to pursue his dream of flying so soon in his life.

NASA Brings Collision Avoidance System to General Aviation Automatic maneuvering technology has already saved lives of F-16 pilots BY MATT KAMLET, NASA ARMSTRONG FLIGHT RESEARCH CENTER

A TECHNOLOGY DESIGNED to help prevent aircraft from hitting terrain, developed by NASA, the U.S. Air Force Research Lab, and Lockheed Martin, has proven to be groundbreaking. Ever since the automatic ground collision avoidance system (Auto-GCAS) started integration into F-16 aircraft, the field of flight safety has benefited considerably. In fact, since the system began operational use more than five F-16 pilots have credited the system with lifesaving automated maneuvering. Today, NASA is looking to expand that benefit to general aviation pilots. Auto-GCAS is an aircraft software system that activates when it detects a

collision course with the ground. This has proved handy for high-intensity F-16 maneuvers, which can pull 8g or greater, sometimes resulting in the pilot experiencing a g-induced loss of consciousness, or G-LOC. The system warns the pilot, and if collision with the ground is determined to be imminent, it locks the pilot controls and performs an automatic recovery maneuver, returning full control back to the pilot once the aircraft has cleared the terrain. Mark Skoog, an aerospace engineer for NASA, oversaw much of the systems’ development and advancement for the F-16. Part of his efforts since then have focused on fine-tuning the system for general aviation pilots into a new

The F-16D automatic collision avoidance technology aircraft tests of the automatic ground collision avoidance system (Auto-GCAS) included flights in areas of potentially hazardous terrain, including canyons and mountains.

structure he calls the improved ground collision avoidance system (IGCAS). This new system, Skoog said, will focus on warning pilots about terrain they may not see or expect, such as in the dark or in dense fog situations. IGCAS is a system that would be programmed to cellphones or tablets, which would then provide warnings to pilots about potential terrain obstacles ahead. Skoog, who is scheduled to discuss this technology in a forum today at 11:30 a.m. in the Vette Theater, has an interactive simulator for pilots and visitors to experience the system available at the NASA pavilion. NASA is located at Aviation Gateway Park.

Pipistrel Offers Fly for Free Concept PIPISTREL AIRCRAFT BELIEVES it can drastically reduce the cost of flying with the advent of extremely efficient airframes and propulsion systems that produce staggering results for cost-conscious flyers. The Pipistrel Taurus Electro was the world’s first electric two-seat airplane to fly, and the first electric aircraft to enter production. Not just efficient, the Taurus Electro features dual retractable main landing gear, a retractable electric motor, impressive gliding performance, inexpensive maintenance, and a spacious, well-ventilated cockpit making the aircraft both rugged and comfortable.

With the addition of the new second generation Pipistrel Solar Trailer, flying can now be conducted independent of any electrical installations. The Pipistrel Solar Trailer is designed to charge the Taurus Electro in as little as five hours — at zero cost and zero emission. The Solar Trailer and the Taurus Electro are provided to demonstrate how a Pipistrel owner/operator can fly for free quietly and with no environmental emissions. The Taurus Electro also frees the pilot to operate at countless small airports and releases them from the hassle of having to operate from busy, restrictive airports. Pilots will be able to explore and enjoy remote locations free of the need to find a plug. The freedom leaves a pilot

without dependence on the grid while the Pipistrel Solar Trailer collects and stores clean, natural solar power. Nearly 2 kW of flexible solar panels are bonded to the PST roof, while it provides multiple 12-volt DC and 110/240-volt AC electrical outlets for ready use. And in case the sun is a little weak, the Pipistrel Solar Trailer is equipped with a 3 kWh integrated storage battery, which can also be used to power your campsite or basic home appliances during a blackout or natural disaster — making the PST a mobile emergency powerplant. Pipistrel is located at Booths 86 and 87 in the Main Aircraft Display.

AL172 Simulator Headed to Cirrus Aviation in Florida ALSIM IS EXCITED to announce that its AL172 simulator on display at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 is going to Cirrus Aviation, a premier flight-training institution located in Sarasota, Florida. This is Cirrus’ second ALSIM simulator, after purchasing the first AL250 in America and accepting it at AirVenture last year. The AL172, developed in 2017, is an exact replica of the Cessna 172 SP Skyhawk NAV III. It features real Garmin G1000 avionics and is equipped with the ALSIM High Definition Visual System.

“The AL250, a certified FAA AATD [advanced aviation training device], is now fully integrated into our 141 program, and due to the visuals, stability, and ease of use, the sim has been wellreceived by both our students and instructors alike,” said Cirrus Aviation’s Nayda Cattin. “Here we are back in Wisconsin, growing our simulator fleet with the receipt of the AL172. We are extremely happy with our sim choice.” Both the AL172 and AL250 simulat o r s a re ava i l a b l e t o d e m o i n Thrustmaster Gaming Exhibit Hangar B this week.
