Torrential rains turned to sunny skies for EAA AirVenture 2010, drying up the soaked ground that once threatened to limit much of the parking available for the anticipated arrival of droves of aircraft. A cavalcade of DC-3s flew in to start the festivities at the world's largest airshow, and exhibits included warbirds, seaplanes, LSA, and large cargo jets of days past. A new Warbird Lane was dedicated for future shows, and Aeroshell Square opened to the public, who gazed upon new aircraft, as well as aircraft of yore. Exciting meet and greets with the greatest airshow performers in the world, an appearance by the Goodyear Blimp, and a salute to veterans wowed spectators throughout the week. Take a look at the show from the eyes of an aviator in AOPA’s online photo gallery.
Continuing significant orders to the training market shows that Piper Aircraft is making progress in its three-year plan to gain market share in that competitive arena.
L-3 Aviation Products plans to join the general aviation ADS-B world with its Lynx MultiLink Surveillance System. The new products will be “specifically tailored to fit the panel and budget of today’s general aviation aircraft and pilots,” said Larry Riddle, vice president of sales and marketing.
It was a big day for the newly resurrected Mooney International Corp. Mooney president Jerry Chen handed over the keys to the first airplane to roll out of the Kerrville, Texas, manufacturer’s newly reactivated factory site.
