Living in New York offers a lot of comforts, like being able to order food at any time of the day and night, but it also comes with some sacrifices.

In addition to being forced to endure the high cost of living and increasingly expensive rents, New Yorkers often have to deal with another challenge: the noise of the city. Complaints about loud music and noisy cars are a classic in New York, but in recent years locals have grown weary of the noise of helicopters.

A recent bill proposed by Representatives Carolyn Maloney, Jerrold Nadler and Nydia Velazquez would require the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and local agencies “to significantly reduce the number of non-essential helicopters”, New York Daily News reports. From October 2019 to October 2020, city data shows that noise complaints about helicopters increased by 130%.

“New Yorkers are inundated with the sound of helicopters,” Maloney said at a press conference. “It negatively affects their quality of life and their physical and psychological health.”

According to statistics from NYC Open Data, between January 1, 2022 and today, noise complaints related to helicopters represent 4% of all complaint types. While that may seem like a small number, it comes down to 7,861 service requests versus 311 so far.

Still, helicopter-related stories aren’t one of the biggest players in the noise complaints game. Complaints labeled “Residential” accounted for a whopping 54%, in comparison, with 108,988 complaints filed. The “Street/Sidewalk” category followed with 13% of service requests, while “Vehicle” noise complaints represented 10%.

Take a look at this graph showing the different categories of noise complaints since the start of 2022:

For a more specific analysis, noise complaint descriptors can help. When plotting the same noise complaint data from the perspective of the descriptor, new, more detailed clusters appear, including Loud Music/Party, which accounted for 51% of all noise complaints (101 579 requests for service against 311), “Hit/Hit”. (18%) and “Speak loudly” (8%). Last on this list is “Loud Television”, which is responsible for 2,087 complaints so far this year.

Here is the graph showing the distribution of noise complaints according to their descriptors:

MIAMI BEACH — One person was killed and five others were injured, including two toddlers, after a small plane crashed into a bridge near Haulover Park on Saturday afternoon, hitting a car and bursting into flames, authorities announced.

Narciso Torres, a 36-year-old Miami International Airport traffic controller, died in the wreckage, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association said. Torres had worked with the Federal Aviation Administration for more than a decade at various airports.

“This is a terrible tragedy that has sent shockwaves through our entire NATCA family,” NATCA President Rich Santa said in a statement.

Authorities have yet to confirm the identities of those involved in the accident.

The single-engine Cessna 172 lost engine power and landed on the Haulover Inlet bridge around 1 p.m., the Federal Aviation Administration said. The plane had taken off from Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale International Airport with three people on board heading for Key West International Airport.

A woman and two small children were in a car traveling on the bridge when the plane made the emergency landing, Miami-Dade police said. After a head-on collision with the car, the aircraft flipped over and was engulfed in flames. Another car was mowed down in the accident.

Miami-Dade police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta said it was “miraculous” that the woman with the children emerged from the collision without serious injury.

“The hands of God were protecting these children, because what are the chances? A head-on collision with an airplane and you’re off. Amazing,” he told the Miami Herald.

Rescuers find one dead and five injured

When Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived, two of the plane’s three passengers were already outside the plane. After extinguishing the fire, firefighters found one person dead inside the plane, police said.

The woman and children were in good stable condition and were taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center as a precaution.

One person was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center and another person was taken to Aventura Hospital. Their conditions were not immediately known.

According to the FAA’s Aircraft Registry and global flight tracking site FlightRadar24, the plane is owned by two local pilots, Adam Cartwright of Homestead and William Shaw of Miami.

The FAA has not officially released the plane’s registration number, but Shaw confirmed to the Miami Herald that it was his plane that went down on Saturday afternoon.

Neither Cartwright nor Shaw were on the plane, Shaw said, adding he had no further comment on the fatal incident. It was not immediately clear who had flown the plane.

Due to fuel runoff from the crash, the Department of Environmental Resource Management was called to the scene at Collins Avenue and 108th Street, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said.

Expert says crash may not have affected integrity of bridge

A bridge inspection company and Florida Department of Transportation workers were also on site Saturday, Zabaleta said. It was too early to determine if the bridge had been damaged, he said.

“I’m sure city officials and the proper authorities will diagnose this and look into this,” he said.

The bridge spans the inlet where Biscayne Bay empties into the Atlantic Ocean. It is just north of Bal Harbour, Surfside and Miami Beach, and south of Haulover Park and Sunny Isles Beach.

Linwood Howell, a bridge engineer with Austin, Texas-based consulting firm XR Structural, said it was not possible to know what impact the plane crash may have had on the bridge until that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) would not have investigated.

He said it was a “very solid looking bridge”. Factors for assessing damage to the deck would include the impact of the crash, the weight of the plane and where the heat from the wreckage fire took hold, he said. .

Since the single-engine Cessna is a relatively light aircraft and the impact does not initially appear substantial, Howell said the loss of structural integrity of the deck is less of a concern.

“If you had an airliner or something big with a big crash, it definitely could have done a lot of damage,” Howell said.

As for the heat, because the crash happened above deck and the heat is increasing, it shouldn’t pose a risk, he said.

“Rarely has a fire above the deck caused much damage to the concrete,” he said. “Vehicles crash and burn on a regular basis.”

Social media abuzz with videos of flaming wreckage

Videos on social media showed the plane on the deck in flames as passers-by went to and from it.

On deck, the plane caught fire and disintegrated. A van was badly damaged near the aircraft.

An accident causes major traffic problems

Until the plane is moved and roads are cleared of debris, street closures cause heavy traffic jams.

About eight miles of Collins Avenue, from 96th Street to 163rd Street, is closed to traffic in both directions, Zabaleta said.

“We understand that this is causing major traffic congestion and we apologize for that,” he said.

Roads are expected to be closed for several hours and into the night as the FAA and NTSB remove the plane from the deck.

Bal Harbor manager Jorge Gonzalez said the accident had a ripple effect on traffic in the Miami Beach and northeast Miami-Dade areas.

“It’s going to be a challenge for a while,” Gonzalez said. “The traffic network is very fragile. An accident like this will have repercussions throughout northeast Dade.

Members of NASA’s Independent Safety Advisory Board warned the space agency on Thursday not to rush into a crewed test flight of Boeing’s troubled Starliner spacecraft, and expressed concerns over final certification of the capsule’s parachutes and the Boeing workforce in the program.

Security advisers also said there were ‘obvious security concerns’ over SpaceX’s plan to launch the giant Starship rocket from Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center, the same facility used for crewed missions. to the International Space Station.

Boeing plans to launch a redesign of a problem-ridden test flight of its Starliner crew capsule next week. The mission – called Orbital Flight Test-2, or OFT-2 – will not carry astronauts. But if all goes well, the OFT-2 mission will pave the way for the next Starliner launch to ferry a crew to the space station for one last demonstration mission — called the Crew Flight Test, or CFT — before NASA and Boeing do. declare the new utility vehicle ready for use.

Developed through a public-private partnership, the Starliner spacecraft will give NASA a second human capsule capable of ferrying astronauts to and from the space station, alongside SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft, which launched with a crew for the first time in May 2020.

With SpaceX now providing regular crew transport services to the space station, NASA officials have had time to resolve technical issues with the Starliner spacecraft. Nevertheless, NASA is eager to have two crew transport providers to avoid relying on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft again for astronaut flights in case SpaceX experiences significant delays.

“The panel is delighted that, by all indications, there is no sense of need to rush to CFT,” Aerospace Security Advisory Group member David West said during a meeting. public on Thursday. “The view that has been consistently expressed to us (from NASA) is that the program will transition to CFT when, and only when, they are ready. Of course, the best route to CFT will be an OFT-2 success. “

NASA has signed a series of contracts with Boeing, valued at more than $5 billion, since 2010 for Starliner development, test flights and operations. The contracts include agreements for six crew rotation flights to the space station – each with a crew of four – following the completion of the OFT-2 mission and the shorter duration crew flight test with astronauts on board.

But the Starliner program has faced years of delays. Software issues prevented the spacecraft from docking with the space station during the OFT-1 mission in 2019, forcing Boeing to stage a second unmanned test flight at its own expense. The OFT-2 mission was on the launch pad last August, ready to lift off atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket, when engineers noticed that 13 oxidizer isolation valves in the rocket’s propulsion system Starliner spacecraft were stuck in the closed position.

After nine months of testing, investigation and a swap to a new propulsion module, Boeing transferred the Starliner spacecraft to ULA’s rocket hangar on May 4 to lift it on top of an Atlas rocket. 5, ready for another attempt at launch. Read our previous story on valve repairs.

West said Thursday that NASA officials had approved the oxidation valve fix for the OFT-2 mission, but noted “there is some question as to whether a redesign of the valve will be required for the future flights after OFT-2”. He also said officials approved “flight justification” for issues with a high-pressure lockout valve on the Starliner command module’s propulsion system, a separate issue from the oxidizer valves in the service module. .

“Additionally, there are concerns that the certification of Boeing parachutes is lagging behind,” West said.

He also noted “significant programmatic concern” with the limited number of human-rated Atlas 5 rockets remaining in ULA’s inventory. ULA still has 24 Atlas 5 rockets to fly before retiring the rocket in favor of the cheaper and more powerful Vulcan Centaur rocket.

Eight of those 24 rockets are already assigned to the Starliner program, enough to meet Boeing’s contractual requirement with NASA, which includes two more test flights and six operational crew rotation missions to the space station.

ULA’s new Vulcan rocket has yet to fly.

“Another factor is that the Vulcan launcher that is to replace the Atlas 5 for Starliner launches must be certified for human spaceflight, and the process of getting that certification could take years,” West said.

West, a longtime technical safety manager and director of examinations with the Board of Certified Safety Professionals, said general concerns about NASA and the agency’s human spaceflight program contractors had “a particular importance in the case of Boeing”.

“The panel noted that Boeing’s staffing levels appear to be particularly low,” West said. “The panel will be monitoring the situation in the near future to see what impact, if any, this may have on the existence or mitigation of any security risk.

“While we don’t want to see an undue rush to launch CFT, Boeing should ensure that all available resources are applied to meet a reasonable schedule and avoid unnecessary delays,” West said.

“We are definitely behind the idea of ​​not launching until (this) is ready, until all the security has been taken care of,” said Mark Sirangelo, another member of the security committee. . “At the same time, if the delays are caused by a lack of resources applied to the program, it has significant impacts, or may have significant effects, on NASA’s schedule for its return to the moon and many other things. who are going to get out of these delays.

NASA and Boeing officials declined to set a target timeline for the crew flight test, saying only that capsule preparations for the first astronaut mission were on track to have the vehicle ready. to be launched by the end of this year. The crew flight test schedule will largely depend on the results of the OFT-2 mission.

SpaceX, NASA’s other commercial crew contractor, has performed five crew launches for NASA, as well as two all-private astronaut missions using the company’s fleet of Dragon spacecraft.

Officials said last year that SpaceX would end production of new Dragon capsules after building four human-rated vehicles. The fourth and final member of the fleet was first launched last month. Each Dragon spacecraft is designed for at least five flights, and SpaceX and NASA could certify the capsule for additional missions.

“We are very concerned about whether the requirements for transporting astronauts to and from the ISS throughout whatever remaining lifespan can be met without any additional Dragons,” said West. “It would be advisable to conduct parametric studies to inform and support relevant decisions as to whether more Dragon capsules are needed.

“The Dragon’s launch pace continues however and steps are being taken to maintain the launch pace,” West said. “Some of these measures may include postponing preventive maintenance and reusing Dragon multiple times. “The panel will be watching closely to see if these measures can be implemented without increasing the risks.

“‘It’s worth noting, by the way, that there’s an enormous amount of data coming from all of these SpaceX launches,'” West said. “While the data can benefit NASA, we believe care should be taken not to be overwhelmed with too much data.”

In February, NASA ordered three more crew rotation missions from SpaceX, adding to the six flights of the initial commercial crew contract. Once Starliner is operational, NASA wants to alternate crew rotations every six months between Boeing and SpaceX, offering each supplier one NASA astronaut flight per year.

West added that SpaceX plans to eventually launch the massive next-generation Starship rocket, currently under development in South Texas, from Kennedy Space Center, which could pose a risk to the Falcon 9 launch facility. and Dragon at pad 39A.

“One possible option that has been identified for the Starship launch is from a planned new facility within the physical boundaries around pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center, from where the Dragons are launching,” West said. “There are obvious safety concerns about launching the large, and as yet unproven, spacecraft in such close proximity, apparently only about 300 meters or so, to another pad, not to mention the path so vital to the spacecraft program. ‘trade crew.’

Pad 39A is also the only launch facility currently capable of launching SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket, needed to carry heavier military spacecraft from NASA and the United States into orbit.

The Starship and its gigantic Super Heavy booster stage combine to reach almost 120 meters in height. The system is designed to be fully reusable, and SpaceX plans to vertically land the Starship booster and upper stage at the launch site.

SpaceX is completing work on a Starship launch pad in South Texas, but the Federal Aviation Administration is reviewing the environmental impacts of SpaceX’s operations at the site before issuing a commercial launch license for the first full Starship orbital test flight .

NASA awarded SpaceX a $2.9 billion contract last year to develop a version of the Starship vehicle to land astronauts on the moon.

“In conclusion, I would just like to say that these are extremely complex times for CCP,” West said, referring to NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. “As the Starship launch site shows, there are many external but related considerations to take into account. One thing that remains clear, however, is that getting to the point where NASA has two viable CCP vendors is still very important.

Israeli eVTOL (electric vehicle take-off and landing) manufacturer, AIR, unveiled its full-scale prototype of its AIR ONE personal transportation vehicle, at the Kentucky Derby this week and announced a newly established partnership with a exhibition and an Aéroauto urban air mobility concessionaire. Aeroauto will support the commercial deployment of AIR ONE scheduled for 2024.

The Kentucky Derby horse race held annually in Louisville, Ky., is the first of many stops on AIR ONE’s prototype tour. The Aeroauto showroom will showcase the AIR ONE and its virtual flight simulation technology between events. As the newest addition to the AIR Brand Ambassador (ABA) program, Aeroauto will help establish the local infrastructure required for personal EV aviation and act as a maintenance provider. The partnership will also allow AIR ONE customers to access the Aeroauto Flight Academy.

“It is a great honor to become the world’s first dedicated urban air mobility vehicle showroom and dealership, bringing an international manufacturer to North America as an AIR brand ambassador, while becoming their flagship North American retailer for sales, service and customer training,” said Sean Borman, CEO of Aeroauto. “We believe that AIR’s advanced technology will be a great asset to the automotive industry. personal transportation as a whole.The AIR ONE is an exciting addition to the personal transportation market in the United States and for anyone who has dreamed of these incredible machines for decades.

Unlike commercial aviation, AIR’s first eVTOL transportation vehicle will give public consumers the ability to incorporate flight into their daily lives as a cleaner, faster alternative to driving conventional combustion engine cars.

Founded by Chen Rosen and later joined by Netanel Goldberg and Rani Plaut and based in the verdant fields of Pardes Hanna, near Tel Aviv, AIR began designing prototypes in 2017 and began testing system functionality in 2019. According to the company, its flagship model is designed for up to two passengers, runs on electricity only and is capable of traveling 110 miles (177 km) on a single charge at speeds as high as 155 miles per hour (250 km per hour). As an eVTOL, AIR ONE has the ability to take off and land on any flat surface.

The company will soon begin testing hover capabilities and is working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to finalize its formal application of the G1 Certification Baseline Document, a certification that establishes mandatory environmental and airworthiness standards.

“It’s exciting that we were able to celebrate this milestone and unveil AIR ONE at a truly iconic event like the Kentucky Derby, with the help of Churchill Downs,” said Rani Plaut, CEO and Co-Founder of AIR. “Alongside our new partner, Aeroauto, the pioneers we met at the Derby will play a crucial role in driving public acceptance of personal eVTOLs, propelling the entire industry forward, transforming the way we moving around and adding a dose of adventure to everyday life. ”

AIR has started accepting pre-orders for AIR ONE on its website.

Riyadh — Under the high patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, Minister of Transport and Logistics Services Eng. Saleh Al-Jasser on Monday inaugurated the Future Aviation Forum, organized by the General Civil Aviation Authority over three days at the King Abdulaziz International Conference Center in Riyadh.

The forum is considered a qualitative and unique international event in the civil aviation sector to provide an opportunity to exchange knowledge and ideas and discuss best experiences and practices in resource and capability development.

The event will see the signing of more than 50 agreements and memorandums of understanding, in addition to the launch of several important policies and strategies for the civil aviation sector and the signing of a large number of partnerships between public sectors. and private.

A total of 60 countries are participating in the forum with over 2,000 participants and over 4,000 people who have registered for forum events.

The forum focuses on three main aspects of innovation, growth and sustainability, which are the main and effective aspects of the civil aviation sector.

Eng. Al-Jasser, during his opening speech, pointed out that Saudi Arabia seeks to increase its investments in the transport and logistics sector by more than 100 billion dollars, transport 300 million passengers and five million tons of cargo and connect to 250 destinations worldwide by the end of the current decade.

He added that there are plans to launch airlines offering the best services among global airlines and to develop airport facilities through two headquarters based in Riyadh and Jeddah.

The Minister noted that there are many opportunities for the private sector to achieve our ambitions, pointing out that the Ministry has transformed more than 25 airports into holding companies to be ready for privatization, in addition to approving hundreds of applications for planes and to open up new destinations. for several countries.

Through a visual presentation, the Minister reviewed the air services and openness of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the world and reviewed the promising opportunities for the international aviation sector, where the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is connected to 250 global destinations with three times the number of passengers and five times the volume of cargo, expressing the hope that Saudi Arabia will become number one in the Middle East by 2030.

For his part, the Chairman of the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al-Duailej, stressed that Saudi Arabia considers that it is time to put a limit to the economic difficulties facing the international aviation sector.

In his address, he reiterated the importance of working together to deal with future crises, noting that the only way to achieve this is through ongoing cooperation that can enable us to collectively respond to any future outbreaks and their impacts on our businesses.

The President noted that the global economy depends on itself in the international and local aviation industry, adding that the industry, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, offered $1 trillion in economic activity.

He also pointed out that the authority, in cooperation with leading industrial authorities around the world, is seeking to achieve the smooth air transport policy necessary for the operation of the industry in times of future health emergencies in various areas, including: coordination reporting systems for all countries; establish best-in-class digital communication systems to enable all air operators and governments to effectively communicate in real time on issues related to evolving health emergencies; put in place appropriate global administration and coordination systems that can allow for flexibility if needed; and ensuring that health compliance mechanisms are in place.

Al-Duailej noted that the harmonious air travel policy will grant our industries and passengers the decisive ability to grow, and it is a policy that will save our industries billions of dollars in future crises, emphasizing that Saudi Arabia is very proud of the work that has been achieved during the preparation of the policy, which embodies our commitment and enthusiasm to play a leading role in the future development of our industries.

The first day’s sessions saw the participation of Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, Minister of Energy; Prince Turki Bin Talal, governor of the Asir region; several high officials and transport ministers, heads of civil aviation authorities and ambassadors from Arab and non-Arab countries. — SPA

Mercy Flight WNY announced it would resume regular operations at 7 a.m. Saturday for the first time since the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of Mercy Flight Pilot James E. Sauer and Bell Flight Pilot Stewart Mr. Dietrick on April 26.

“Part of the collective heart of Mercy Flight has changed forever, but we know our patients still need us,” Mercy Flight President Margaret Ferrentino said Friday. “It is our duty and our honor to work alongside our partners to be there for those in need of air ambulance service, and we know, without a doubt, that getting back in the air to help them is what Jim would like us to do.”

Mercy Flight WNY suspended operations immediately after the Elba crash. The accident, which happened during a training mission, is still under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Scott Wooton, executive vice president of Mercy Flight WNY, described how the organization handled the emotional toll of the past 10 days.

“We have spent every minute since last Tuesday’s tragic accident ensuring that all members of our team are properly cared for and confirming that our two remaining helicopters are completely safe and in good working order,” Wooton said. . “Extensive in-house and third-party maintenance inspections have indicated that the N506TJ and N508TJ are fully functional and ready to resume their vital work.”

Mercy Flight’s helicopter inventory has been cut in half over the past seven months. Prior to April’s fatal crash, another of Mercy Flight’s Bell 429 helicopters was damaged beyond repair after crashing at Genesee County Airport in October.

Mercy Flight Central, the nearby Canandaigua-based emergency medical helicopter service, temporarily took over responsibility for the western New York branch on April 28. In its statement, Mercy Flight WNY thanked Mercy Flight Central for its backup efforts.

FAA finds no significant environmental impact for BOS Runway 4 Left GPS approaches https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/faa-finds-no-significant-environmental-impact-for-bos-runway-4-left-gps-approaches/ Wed, 04 May 2022 17:35:43 +0000 https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/faa-finds-no-significant-environmental-impact-for-bos-runway-4-left-gps-approaches/ The US Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration has released the Final Environmental Assessment (EA) for a new satellite approach procedure to Boston Logan International Airport’s Runway 4 Left.

The US Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration has released the Final Environmental Assessment (EA) for a new satellite approach procedure to Boston Logan International Airport’s Runway 4 Left. The EA concluded that the procedure would have no significant impact in any environmental category, including aviation noise.

The new procedure closely follows the path of the existing visual approach for runway 4-left. By providing vertical and lateral guidance to pilots and allowing air traffic controllers to more accurately monitor arriving aircraft, aircraft remain in a narrower approach path. It will also improve flight safety and efficiency, especially in bad weather. When visibility is poor, flights will be able to land on runway 4-left, which will help reduce delays that lead to late arrivals at the airport. Currently, planes can only land on the runway in good weather.

The agency conducted the EA in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, which requires the FAA to identify and publicly disclose the potential environmental impacts of the proposed procedure.

Additional information about the agency’s community engagement project and program is available at Boston Community Involvement.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Virginia Natural Gas will be one of the first natural gas utilities in the Commonwealth to use aerial drones to perform inspections on its pipeline infrastructure.

These unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones, will begin flights across Hampton Roads and northern James and New Kent counties to inspect critical infrastructure, conduct right-of-way assessments and inspect more of 5,500 miles of gas pipeline.

Virginia Natural Gas will also conduct a pilot program for its sister companies in Illinois, Georgia and Tennessee, all of which report to its parent company, Southern Company Gas.

VNG will use self-shipping Mavic 2 Pro drones which will allow engineers and asset protection and construction managers to have the flexibility to use these drones in their daily work.

Traditional pipeline inspection methods have been slower, manual intensive, expensive, and have sometimes caused safety issues due to the surrounding natural environment. Although the gas pipelines are underground, they are accessible from the surface for maintenance and inspection.

Drones with a visual or infrared camera can now be used to navigate and patrol a segment of pipeline, identify and capture images or video of areas of interest at pre-set times and returns, VNG explains.

A team of three trained “pilots” will fly the drones. These pilots recently obtained their certifications from the Federal Aviation Administration and hope to have the program up and running soon.

“The use of drones is just one of many innovative new technologies that Virginia Natural Gas is using to be ready for the future. The drones will allow VNG to obtain aerial views of our infrastructure where access is sometimes difficult, which will allow us to minimize any environmental impact or inconvenience to customers along the rights-of-way and provide another layer of safety for our field inspectors. During storms and hurricanes, drone technology will allow us access immediate and eye-catching visual imagery from above pipelines and infrastructure so we can make immediate repairs to the system if needed,” the company said of how the drones will benefit its customers.
