The Veterans Airlift Command has formed an alliance with Mach 2 Management to seek out corporate sponsorship for VAC’s ongoing work providing free general aviation transportation for wounded veterans and their families.
“By partnering with Mach 2, it allows me to remain focused on what I am most passionate about—recruiting volunteer aircraft owners and identifying the needs among our wounded war heroes,” said VAC “Air Boss” Walt Fricke. “I have seen the excellent results that Mach 2 has provided for clients like Ford, Jaguar, and the EAA, and we are confident that they will deliver the same kind of results for VAC.”
Mach 2 will soon begin contacting companies, business and organizations in an effort to tell the VAC story.

Beringer Wheels and Brakes announced the availability of several types of aircraft wheels on July 29 at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and said a new anti-groundloop tailwheel design is forthcoming.
The widespread presence of angle-of-attack indicators in general aviation aircraft could reduce fatal loss-of-control accidents caused by inadvertent stalls, said the FAA.
Flight Design says production and testing of its four-seat C4 is on target despite the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
