First Helicopter Solo At 16 Makes New Mexico History

Isaac Wilson made history in his home state of New Mexico on Tuesday when he flew his first solo in a helicopter at age 16. The flight over Double Eagle II Airport in Albuquerque was the first of its kind there. It also was a unique milestone for Wilson's instructor, Douglas Christian of Vertical Limit Aviation. "Sixteen years old, he's making history today," Christian told KOB News 4. "He has the whole world in front of him and he's gonna be a great pilot."

KLM Campaign Reaches Out To Airline Travelers

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines took marketing and customer service a step further in recent weeks with a five-day event assisting thousands of travelers around the world. In a video released this month, the airline described the social media-based "#happytohelp" campaign as its way of reaching out to non-KLM customers. "We decided to help out everyone, even people who don't fly KLM," the ad says. The airline set up a help center at Schiphol Plaza at Amsterdam Airport and a Twitter hashtag, and sent out teams of blue-jacketed employees on various missions.

Trappe Flies Again

Pilot Jonathan Trappe, who has flown his unique cluster-balloon systems across the English Channel, Lake Michigan, and the Alps, last week completed his first flight in more than a year, launching from Decatur, Alabama, and landing about nine hours later, 160 miles away, in Ellijay, Georgia. "We flew on November 21, which is Montgolfier Day, the anniversary of the first hot-air balloon flight, in 1783," Trappe told AVweb this week. He said while on his previous flights he was often pushing the limits of the technology -- culminating in an attempt to cross the Atlantic in September 2013 -- this flight was just for fun.

Second Cirrus Test Jet Flies

Cirrus's SF50 jet program took a major step forward on Tuesday with the first flight of its second certification flight test aircraft. C1, as it has been dubbed, took off at 3:30 p.m. from Duluth International Airport for a 45-minute flight.

Passengers Push Stuck Airplane in Russia

Video of passengers pushing an airliner where its wheels had frozen to the ground in northern Russia made news around the world this week. The video shows people pushing the Tupolev Tu-134 backwards on a tarmac in Igarka, where it was 61 degrees below zero, the Associated Press reported. The UTair Russian airliner was to carry 74 oil workers and seven crewmembers from Igarka to Krasnoyarsk 800 miles to the south, but the plane's brakes were frozen, according to the AP report.

Corporate Jet Skids Off Runway In Texas

A corporate jet skidded off a wet runway and into a creek at Sugar Land Regional Airport in Texas Friday, Houston-area media reported. Two pilots on board were uninjured, and the Embraer Phenom ended up tail-first in Oyster Creek. After touchdown, the pilot tried to make a U-turn to avoid going off the end of the runway, said Patricia Pollicoff, a spokeswoman for the city of Sugar Land, which owns the airport.

Houston Controller Talks VFR Pilot Through IMC

ATC audio of a Houston controller talking a VFR pilot through an emergency IFR approach into Houston Executive Airport included instruction on setting up a GPS, vectors, and managing the Cessna 172's engine as it descended from 8500 feet. Pilot Mark Nelson had called ATC for help when he was trapped above clouds flying his Cessna 172 over Texas on Nov. 16.
