While we’ve been expecting the newest launch of the 2020 G6 SR Series from Cirrus Aircraft, we didn’t expect their latest launch to be used outside the cockpit. Cirrus has launched an aircraft app to accompany the latest in the SR aircraft series.
This app is designed to let pilots check preflight information on the go. It will be listed on the App Store for iPhones only at the launch scheduled for this month. Pilots are the main target of the app, giving them the capability to check oxygen and fuel levels, oil temperature, aircraft flight hours and location, and even battery voltage.

Pilot Peter Teahen and co-pilot John Ockenfels aim to raise $1 million to eradicate polio around the world. From March 24 to May 13, they are partnering with Rotary International to raise money and awareness about polio.
The six-passenger Piper Lance II will take them an estimated 19,601 miles in 135 in-flight hours. There will be navigation and communication equipment onboard for people to track their progress online. Since the pilots are paying for the flight themselves, an estimated $60,000 to $70,000, with help from grants and equipment donations, 100% of the proceeds will go to Rotary International to eradicate polio.

The Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) opened a brand-new facility in Norfolk, Virginia on March 17, 2020. The campus will be a training school in partnership with Hampton Roads area public high schools for 11th and 12th graders to learn new skills and earn high school credits.
Students at Hampton City Schools’ Academies and Norfolk Public Schools’ Career and Technical Education can earn up to 19 credit hours that are transferable to AIM career programs. The students will also earn FAA certifications in UAS piloting and general aviation. The partnership is designed to bring awareness to aviation careers, hands-on training, and pathways for students along with additional training for Hampton Academy teachers.
Hoosier Aviation has added two new single-engine piston aircraft this week that are now available for flight training and rental at Terre Haute Regional Airport. This combines with their Advanced Commercial Flight Training school offered for Indiana State University students at the airport.
“Anyone from the public can train with Hoosier Aviation, so you don’t need to be an ISU student,” said Katelyn Griffin, chief pilot at Hoosier Aviation.
The aircraft are 2015 Cirrus SR-20s with room for 4 passengers and 4-hour travel time. With individual overhead lighting, tinted windows, and cushioned seats, the comfort level is closer to a luxury car. The expansive windows also make any seat in the cabin an amazing view.
