Airborne 09.02.22: 20th TBM 960, Chinook Grounding, Artemis I

Also: Air France Brawl, Pilot Training Book, B-2 Modernization, Lufthansa 787

Daher’s newest version of the TBM family, the TBM 960, has been a popular addition to the fold. The TBM has proven a fast seller at home and abroad. The lucky recipient of aircraft number 20 was Johnie Weems, a South Florida businessman. This plane will be his fourth TBM, no small feat for any model in the competitive business turboprop market. The winning formula, he says, is the single-pilot capability of the Daher aircraft. The Army issued a surprising grounding order earlier this week, halting flight operations for more than 400 Chinook helicopters over an issue that could lead to engine fires. In a statement, Cynthia Smith said the Army encountered an unspecified number of fuel leaks that lead to engine fires, leading to the fleet being held on pause until the issue could be diagnosed. NASA will target Saturday, Sept. 3 at 1417 EDT, the beginning of a two-hour window, for the launch of Artemis I — the ‘first integrated test’ of NASA’s Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and the ground systems at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. All this — and MORE in today’s episode of Airborne!!!
