A two-part Boston Globe Spotlight investigation into the tracking of aircraft registrants and pilots with criminal ties found an overwhelming lack of scrutiny on the part of the Federal Aviation Administration. The investigation puts the FAA in the crosshairs for being unable to assist law enforcement with connecting U.S.-registered aircraft to the persons who actually own them — potentially an important piece of evidence in terrorism, drug trafficking and international corruption investigations.
West Star Aviation's MRO facility at St. Louis Regional Airport (ALN) in East Alton, Illinois, has been named an authorized service center for the Embraer Legacy series, encompassing the Model 450, 500, 600 and 650, as well as the Lineage 1000 and 1000E bizliners.
The approvals expand on the Brazilian airframer's relationship with the company, which was previously granted authorization to work on the Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 light jets.

When Frank Sinatra decided to drop a cool half-million on an airplane to shuttle his Rat Pack pals between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, he chose a Lear Jet. For Bill Lear's company, 1965 was a very good year.
Lear was 61 when he decided to get into the aircraft production business. Although he'd never designed an airplane, the self-trained engineer was known for his inventions, including the first jet autopilot, for which he'd received the 1949 Collier Trophy.
Stratolaunch, the massive airplane that is being built by Scaled Composites to deliver satellites to low Earth orbit, successfully ran all six of its Pratt & Whitney turbofan engines for the first time this week, the company has announced. The PW4056 engines, which previously powered a Boeing 747, support a payload capacity of more than 150,000 pounds and an operational range of about 2,000 nautical miles. At 385 feet from wingtip to wingtip, Stratolaunch is the largest airplane, by wingspan, ever built. It's also the first aircraft to fly with six 747 engines.
