The Shergood HUD and Sansara Airlines at ERIA

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.

“He was an absolute nutter,” said the arresting officer.

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.

In the first of several planned reports on the Greater Tulagi Region, the Waterbank News has created a map to show anomaly travelers and WW2 era combat participants the growing complexity of the theater.

By clicking on the thumbnailed map you will see the entire contested area, along with the major players in the theater.

What surprised our staffers most was that most of the airports in the theater were neutral, allowing for active combatants to launch from them at the same time commercial GTFO flights could. In fact, nearly anyone can use the airfields, provided they follow local rules and guidelines. While at Archerfield Field (lower middle on the map), we saw a Claw P-40 take off, and a CP P-40 take off only minutes later, undoubtedly chasing it.

“Unless it is a combat airfield like Xilted, air fields are places where the war stops,” said one airport administrator. “What happens once you’re in the Tulagi Sea is wholly different matter.”

The Tulagi region may also be the first to allow smugglers to use the GTFO protocols, taking advantage of the existing combat conditions.
