New This Week

It hasn't been a quiet week in aviation news--our survey uncovered certification testing of the Falcon 7X at the world's highest airport, SAFE Teacher Grant Awards, a big sale of Embraer E175 jets and a company that's developing a way to surf behind an airplane.

JetBlue Engine Failure Prompts Evacuation

An engine failure and a proliferation of cell phones resulted in the dramatic and well-covered return of a JetBlue flight to Long Beach Thursday morning. Flight 1416 was reportedly 25 minutes into the flight to Austin when alarms went off in the cockpit and smoke filled the cabin.

The Weekender: Mountains, Seashores, Camping Adventures Await

Fall is on its way in the Northeast, bringing the promise of great flying weather, and pilots will find plenty of interesting destinations to explore via SocialFlight's website and app. At the Goodspeed Airport, near East Haddam, Connecticut, the 5th Annual Helicopter Gathering is set for this weekend. The field is right on the edge of the Connecticut River, and seaplanes are welcome.

Boeing To Ramp Up 737 Production

At an investor conference hosted by Morgan Stanley this week, Boeing's CEO Ray Conner announced that Boeing is looking to increase 737 production to a whopping 52 a month as soon as 2018.

Air Force Changes Oath Instructions

In response to what was becoming a stalemate over an airman who was trying to reenlist, the U.S. Air Force has directed its support offices to allow both enlisted members and officers to omit the words "So help me God" from oaths for enlistment and officer appointments if an Airman chooses.

Russian Orthodox Patriarch Given An Su-35 Fighter

One More U.S. Stop For Red Bull Racers

If you missed the Red Bull Air Races in Texas earlier this month, you have one more chance to catch them in the U.S.A. -- next stop in the global series will be Las Vegas, Oct. 11 and 12. After that, the racers will wrap up this year's season with the final race, in Austria.

Boeing, SpaceX Win NASA Crew Contract

Within a few years, U.S. astronauts will be able to launch to the International Space Station from the U.S., instead of traveling to Russia as they've been doing since the end of the space-shuttle program in 2011, NASA said on Tuesday. NASA said it has chosen Boeing and SpaceX to develop crew-carrying spacecraft by 2017.

Gulfstream Moving Toward Supersonic Bizjet

Gulfstream is quietly making progress toward a supersonic business jet that might be able to fly above Mach 1 over the U.S. FAA regulations currently ban supersonic flight over land in the U.S.

Short Final

While traversing New York/Washington Center air space, we received a frequency change. However, when trying to check in, the frequency was congested with multiple aircraft being worked. This went on for a while. Finally there was a break, and the PM was able to check in: "Good afternoon, New York. NXXXXX -- long-time listener, first-time caller; FL410." -- Julian McVay
