A team of students and their professor from a Brazilian university say they've set five new records for an aircraft powered by a four-cylinder engine. Anequim (Portuguese for Mako shark) went 323 mph over a 3-kilometer course.

On July 10, an airplane powered by electricity, the Airbus E-Fan, took off from Lydd, England, accompanied by a camera-equipped chase plane. It landed less than an hour later in Calais, France, to kick off a press conference where the company better known for its gas-burning airliners was prepared to claim that it had made the first battery-powered flight across the English Channel.
But just 24 hours earlier, a competitor was preparing to beat Airbus. French stunt pilot Hugues Duval packed himself into a Cri-Cri, one of the smallest airplanes ever built, and cranked up its two battery-driven propellers.
As the FAA gets serious about stemming the threat of UAVs mixing in airspace with general aviation and airline traffic, the agency has appointed two new executives to head its UAS Integration Office.
Retired U.S. Air Force Major General Marke "Hoot" Gibson has been tapped to become the senior advisor on UAS integration, reporting to FAA deputy administrator Michael Whitaker. He will be joined by former FAA Small Aircraft Directorate Head Earl Lawrence, who will become the director of the UAS Integration Office within the FAA's Aviation Safety organization.
According to author Rick Durden: In discussions with new pilots at airports and on aviation forums, two of the recurring questions I get are how to give a good ride to someone who has never been in an airplane before and how come the spouses and families of a fair percentage of pilots don't like to, or simply won't, fly with them. There has been research on both issues, and it boils down to showing respect for your passengers while keeping the flight as smooth as possible.
