A pilot sent us this pic of a “prototype jet” to identify.
“It’s a ZSK lear jet,” our Editor tells us. “We’re all following that one.”
Today in aviation, the WAA has demanded that all Waterbank aircraft use the Shergood Aviation transponder and GPS (link), a way for pilots to see where they are, where others are (fewer crashes!), and plan their flights. The WAA has said that they will no longer use their “pin and paper” method of tracking flights and have entirely switched to the Shergood Radar System (link).
“We love – I mean really love – I mean love love love it,” said the WAA Director.
In East River, Sansara Airlines won a prize for “excellent piloting and safety,” making the airline one of only three ever awarded that prize. Waterbank Airlines remains the only airline who had to return the prize after a fiery crash at an East River gas station.
“There still are very gas stations in East River,” said the award committee.
A smuggler confessed that he too used the Shergood GPS after Waterbank Police arrested him on Munck Field trying to take off with a ton of sand. “He said that the Shergood HUD was great for night flights,” reported a WPD spokesperson.
Police in the Greater Tulagi Area arrested an overexcited ZSK customer who had chained himself to the showroom model of the new jet, demanding its immediate release.
The customer was then driven down the road, where officers decided to break for lunch.
“It was a perfect time for a break,” said the officer, “so we even bought the guy a burger. He took one look at it and started running for Archerfield, screaming “let me buy it, let me buy it. Then he ran smack into the doorframe and – bam – out like a light. I almost feel sorry for the guy.”
The police then ate all the man’s fries.
“I said I felt ‘almost’ sorry for him, right?”
There are only a few hours left at the White Star Airport Safety Show (link), yet many are hailing it as a tremendous success. The massive show has taken over the airfield with more products and services than can be counted. Major manufacturers like Shergood Aviation, HD, Feral Marine, SZYM, and Amok are some of the booths visitors can see there along with a number of new products.
Interestingly, there are also a number of product previews like the Feral Marine Tempest, a Shergood VIP EC 135, and others.
The WBA has endorsed Kousara Charters’ EC-135 service (link) for all its employees traveling through the Blake Sea area.
“We’re picky about who we fly with,” explained a staffer. “We don’t want to lose people like the Waterbank News.”
