Breaking News!

The Slapgate Controversy


On 01 Jan 18, passengers flying on a long haul Jet Airways flight 9W119 from London to Mumbai were witness to a bizarre spectacle high up in the sky. Their Captain, a lady Jet Airways pilot came out of the flight deck in tears. When consoled by equally shocked cabin attendants, she alleged that the Copilot, a senior Captain himself, had slapped her in the cockpit. Overcome with emotion after the physical assault, the commander of the flight left the flight deck in a huff. What followed took airline etiquettes to a new low. The Copilot who allegedly perpetrated the brazen assault came out of the cockpit to persuade the commander to return. As shocked passengers watched on helplessly, the cockpit was left unattended in a gross breach of regulations. After some more bickering and coaxing, both pilots resumed their duties in the cockpit and the flight landed uneventfully at Mumbai. See more…Newsletters-Jan-June-2018

Here's How Much

Flight Attendants Really Make

By Jennifer Calfas

Flight Attendants.jpgA flight’s take-off can mean different things to different people. For some, it could be the beginning of an international trip. For others, it may signal an emotional trip home. For flight attendants, it marks the beginning of their paid hours because their salary completely depends on the number of hours an aircraft is in flight. This means how much a flight attendant makes does not incorporate boarding, taxiing, flight delays, flight cancellations, or anything else that prevents a flight from taking off. So how much does the average flight attendant make? Salaries for flight attendants — it doesn’t matter if their flight is domestic or international — is between $23,000 or $25,00 a year to upwards of $80,000 a year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and PayScale, a salary and compensation information company. (Some flight attendants, however, have shared online and in an interview with MONEY that they make as low as $18,000 a year.) See more…Newsletters-Jan-June-2018

Ehang (pronounced JONG) Announces Vtol Passenger Flights

By Mary Grady


 (Jong) Ehang said this week they have flown “40 or so” passengers in their autonomous VTOL, the (JONG) Ehang 184, and a video of the flights is now posted online. "Performing manned test flights enables us to demonstrate the safety and stability of our vehicles," said the founder and CEO, (Hoo-a-shi HOO) Huazhi Hu. "What we're doing isn't an extreme sport, so the safety of each passenger always comes first. Now that we've successfully tested the (Jong) Ehang 184, I'm really excited to see what the future holds for us in terms of air mobility." (HOO) Hu was among the passengers who flew in the drone, as well as local officials and company employees. The video shows both a single-seat version and a two-seater flying. The video also shows a cockpit equipped with a control stick and rudder pedals. See more of this and the hyperlink Dorothy included in…Newsletters-Jan-June-2018

Utility Drone To Start U.S. Testing

By Mary Grady


A company in Wyoming has secured FAA approval to start flight tests with a large twin-engine drone, the Flyox Mark II, built by Singular Aircraft of Barcelona, Spain. The amphibious drone has a 35-foot wingspan and can carry up to 4,000 pounds of water for dropping on forest fires. According to Singular, it’s the world’s largest amphibious drone, and can be used for agricultural work, freight transport, border surveillance and rescue missions. Unmanned Aircraft International, headquartered in Casper, Wyoming, will conduct the flight tests. “Getting authorization to fly an 8,800-pound drone is very challenging,” UAI operations manager Chuck Jarnot told the Abilene Reflector-Chronicle.
