Two directors were recently appointed to PAMA's Board of Directors, each will serve two-year terms:
Alan Stolzer is the Dean of the College of Aviation on Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Daytona Beach campus, where he is responsible for the academic and administrative oversight of college. He is Professor of Doctoral Studies and teaches Safety Management Systems (SMS) in ERAU's Ph.D. in Aviation program.
Ron Zilderbrand spent his career developing state-of-the art programs for the aviation industry and his aviation experience and entrepreneurial success extends across decades, as the founder of AeroEngine Protection Corporation (AEPC), Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), Zilberbrand Group, LLC, Pyxis Aviation Group, LLC and The Jet Collection, LLC.
Southwest Airlines says it's already following stricter plane engine inspection guidelines that the Federal Aviation Administration mandated recently.
The FAA air-worthiness directive says the fan blades on certain turbine engines must be inspected almost twice as frequently as previously recommended. It's the latest in a series of orders following the accident earlier this year that killed a Southwest passenger when a fan blade on an engine disintegrated in midair.
The FAA's new reauthorization bill was approved by both the House and the Senate over the last few weeks, and now has passed the final hurdle — the president's signature — to become the new law of the land. The bill provides $90 billion in funding over five years, making it the longest-term FAA bill since 1982. GA advocacy groups welcomed the new law, noting several GA-friendly provisions — no user fees, no ATC privatization, and insurance protections for volunteer pilots conducting charitable flights.
Rolls-Royce has welcomed Delta TechOps into its expanded service network as it begins work on its first Trent engine.
Delta TechOps began operations as a Trent Authorised Maintenance Centre, with the induction of a Trent 1000 engine module. The 127,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility will also carry out services on the Trent 7000 and Trent XWB.
Duncan Aviation signed a Parts Reclamation Engine Surplus (PRES) agreement with Honeywell Aerospace for the Honeywell TFE731-2 and -3 turbofan engines. According to Duncan, reclaimed engine parts provide value in cost control and extension of aircraft life. Under this agreement and per Honeywell technical data, Duncan can purchase, inspect, recertify, and repair serviceable parts.
As Virgin Atlantic's Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 arrived at Delta TechOps' new 127,000-sq.-ft. engine center on Oct. 1, it not only became the first engine to enter the new shop for maintenance, but it also launched Delta's operation as a Rolls-Royce Authorized Service Center.
Certified LEED Silver by the U.S. Green Building Council's rating system, HAECO Americas' new hangar at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina, set a new standard in airport hangar design. Contributing to the project's aesthetic, performance and sustainability goals, Exterior Technologies, Inc. engineered, fabricated and installed an energy-efficient, translucent, daylighting system on the hangar.
As a boy growing up in Iceland, Snorri Gudmundsson put a lot of thought into how airplanes could fly. During many trips to a nearby airport in Reykjavik with his father, he asked, "How can something made of metal become airborne? It's heavy. How can it lift off?"
