Today Jet-Care® announced the launch of three new trend programs as part of its Gas Path Analysis engine portfolio.
The new programs, for the Rolls-Royce BR700-710C4, BR700-725A1, Tay 611-8, AE3007A and AE3007C series of engines, have been developed by the Jet-Care Aeronautical Engineering Team, using the same robust in house engine modeling processes used across its already extensive engine portfolio. The Jet-Care programs are renowned for their sensitivity and ability to identify engine problems and deterioration, ahead of other less responsive trend programs available in the marketplace.

Reacting to complaints from pilots and general aviation groups, the FAA has rescinded a notam published at the start of this month which had cautioned that, due to "military activity" in the Southeast U.S., ADS-B and TCAS could be unreliable throughout the region for the month of September.
In its place the FAA has published new notams that specify locations, altitudes, timeframes and equipment affected.

If you're a YouTube aviation video junkie, you've probably seen this one of what's called a blade-out test. It's intended to prove that the containment around a high-bypass turbofan engine can prevent shrapnel from ricocheting outside the engine in the event that the fan loses one or more blades. Or the engine core comes asunder. It's an expensive test, since it involves trashing a multi-million dollar engine, and it's considered to be a big deal because uncontained failures are potential nightmares. Thankfully, they're rare.
According to author Stephen Pope: Flying isn't safe. I will admit that. But it's less dangerous today than it ever has been. It will be safer still five years from now. We should be celebrating this victory — but cautiously. Because we never want to slip back into our old habits and return to the bad old days when flying light airplanes was an exercise fraught with unacceptable risks.
In the old days we didn't have adequate weather information.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Late in the afternoon, the pilot of a Cessna C172 airplane reported seeing a drone aircraft flying at 2,500 feet, about four miles northeast of the Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield, Missouri.
The pilot did not have to take evasive action and did not report it to local law enforcement. But the drone was flying at an altitude where it wasn't supposed to be, according to evolving federal guidelines.
