Bugatti 100P, in 1937 the development of this extremely advanced airplane was started. Tragically the Bugatti 100P airplane never flew, the Germans invaded Paris before it was 100% ready. The airplane surprisingly survived the war, and still exists. The airplane is now in the EAA museum in Oshkosh, USA. Both engines exist, and were built into Bugatti race-cars.

The Bugatti Model 100 The Bugatti Model 100 airplane was designed in 1937 by Louis D. de Monge to compete in the famous "Coupe Deutch" air race. Originally designed with a single propeller, it was later fitted with a second engine, located behind the first one, and a second, counter-rotating propeller. Although offering many avant-garde design features (inverted Y-tail, forward-swept wings), the Model 100 would never fly. Hidden during World War II, it was then brought to the United States, where its engines were removed and used to power racing cars. Its fuselage, passing from hand to hand, was finally donated to the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) museum, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, which started a restoration project in 1996.

Daher says they were introduced with Garmin’s new software release for the G1000 V15 avionics suite which is the TBM 900’s all-glass cockpit configuration. In a company press release, Daher likened these enhancements to bringing an ‘e- copilot’ into the cockpit to reduce the pilot’s workload. Startup aircraft company Cobalt announced this week they have received over $50 million in pre-orders of the company's first model, the Co50 Valkyrie, following the public launch on November 12, last year. The company says that upon opening the order book, they received hundreds of inquiries to buy the plane, including 29 orders that were placed within the first 24 hours. EAA has announced they will hold a Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, February 27th at the Candler Field Museum located on the Peachstate Aerodrome south of Atlanta. EAA chairman and CEO, Jack Pelton, will open the meeting.

Marine Corps Safety Standdown, Aero-Calendar, St. Marys, GA Officials Decline AIP Grant, 'Wildcats' Commander 1000th Arrested Landing, Miracle Flights Coordinates 692 Medical Flights In June, FAA $500,000 Civil Penalty SeaPort Airlines, Alaska Airlines Anchorage, AK Maintenance Facility, Delta Airlines Melt-Down GroundStop, AirVenture Slight Attendance Increase Over 2015, AW609 Flight Testing As our favorite spokesman for the common man, Yogi Berra, once said – “it’s déjà vu all over again.” It was only a couple of weeks ago that Southwest Airlines was all but grounded because of some sort of computer system glitch. Now, the same thing has reportedly happened at Delta Airlines. It’s reported the IT problems took hold early Monday morning and initially led to concerns that delays would be encountered. It now appears that the term, ‘delay,’ was a gross understatement regarding the ricochet effect being caused by the inability to process passengers through the computer system. When our AirVenture ANN staff held their final meeting before heading home, the common feeling was that AirVenture 2016 was well attended and that EAA had made this a great event. You could say that there was simply “something in the air” that told us things went well. Now, the number-crunchers at EAA have released the final accounting for AirVenture 2016, and the numbers of attendees, warbirds, showplanes, homebuilts and exhibitors all increased. Leonardo-Finmeccanica has confirmed that the first AW609 TiltRotor prototype has resumed flight testing in helicopter and airplane modes. Flight testing was suspended after one of the prototype aircraft went down in October of last year, resulting in the fatal injury of both pilots on board and the total loss of the aircraft. Ground testing of the aircraft resumed in May. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!! Airborne 08.09.16 is chock full of info in this Daily News Episode, Tuesday, August 9th, 2016...

Just a little something I put together for Thom Richard who races his modified P-51 Mustang in the Reno Air Races and is a friend of my wife and I. Short back story is he was gracious enough to put our late infant son's name on his plane last year and I thought I would do something to repay the favor somewhat and to get more fans interested in the Air Races and his plane "Precious Metal"
Cessna VP, Jodi Noah, Talks GA With ANN Oshkosh 2013 was a watershed event for many of those attending the annual Fly-In. It was a place to do some bragging, get some news out and gauge the health of the GA world... and Cessna was there to do all of that... and then some. Cessna offered updates on several of their piston-engine programs. VP Jodi Noah said the Turbo Skylane JT-A was progressing towards an expected third-quarter certification by the FAA and also said that orders were coming in for both the Grand Caravan EX and the recently-certified TT-X. The Grand Caravan will see a power boost thanks to a new 867 HP engine, which Cessna says enables it to have a 40% better climb rate. Noah said that the production line is full and they've already delivered 13 units to Africa. She said there is a market for the EX in Russia as a commuter aircraft, and Cessna has 5 demonstrators flying throughout the world now. Cessna also has several programs in place designed to encourage people to start flying. They have developed a partnership with Kansas State University whereby any student going using the Cessna Pilot Center to get their license will get credit that can be applied to their college degree. They also have a very innovative program called the "Discover Flying Challenge" where young people represent Cessna and the flying opportunity at events all over the country. They are attending charitable events, using social media, and speaking wherever they have the opportunity. One particular participant attended 31 events.
