Powered Paragliding Filmed by Google SatellitePowered Paragliding Filmed by Google Satellite
By Mark Colbert, EAA 1033422

It was summer 2016 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, at Fayerweather Island, on Long Island Sound. The wind’s speed was right and the direction was shifting in our favor. We had our gliders laid out and ready to jump into the onshore breeze with whirling two-stroke engines on our backs. We all flew that day. Full story →

Second SpaceShipTwo Makes First Powered FlightSecond SpaceShipTwo Makes First Powered Flight
By Gerry Anderson

On April 5, Virgin Galactic’s second SpaceShipTwo, VSS Unity, successfully completed its first powered flight high above the Mojave Air and Space Port (KMHV). The design is a descendant of Burt Rutan and Scaled Composites’ SpaceShipOne, which won the Ansari XPRIZE for private spaceflight in 2004, and was built by Scaled spin-off The Spaceship Company. VSS Unity was released from the VMS Eve mothership at about 46,500 feet, then flew under rocket power for 30 seconds, reaching an altitude of more than 84,000 feet and a maximum speed of Mach 1.87. Virgin Galactic plans to offer space tourism flights in the near future. Watch video →
