ORKA Founder Introduces her Mission at EAA AirVenture

Working to Create Resources for Independent Flight Instructors

Adriana Barragan saw an issue within the flight training community nearly three years ago and founded Orka to stop it. No, the name is not based on the whale (although my thoughts went there, too)—ORKA is a Swedish word meaning to cope or to have the energy to achieve. This symbolizes exactly what Barragan will need to accomplish her mission. Her company, ORKA, is an all-in-one management system for flight instructors with small businesses. It contains integrated tools for scheduling, marketing, and training. Barragan also mentioned that she is working with the NVIDIA Inception program to introduce AI software, but in her words, “this is just the beginning.” Her end goal for ORKA will take time.

The Iconic A-10’s Last Lap at Oshkosh

EAA Celebrates Legendary Career of the Thunderbolt

The A-10 Thunderbolt II, better known as the A-10 Warthog, has been on display at EAA’s Oshkosh AirVenture for nearly 20 years. The aircraft has been a consistent favorite, performing demonstration flights almost every year since its debut. Unfortunately for the Warthog’s fan club, however, the EAA has confirmed that 2024 will be its last hurrah at AirVenture. To celebrate the Warthog’s 47 years of service and impressive achievements, Oshkosh AirVenture is hosting a Heritage flight during Day 1 of the week-long event. It, of course, features the A-10 demonstration team, along with F-16 Vipers, the Warbirds, and a Chuters Skydiving Team. Many are disappointed to see it go, but we wish it an exciting last few years and a happy retirement afterward.

Airborne 07.17.24: Illegal Parts, Fantasy of Flight, Apollo 11's 55th

Also: Aerox, WI ANG, HI Helo Accident, Gulfstream Expansion

Another criminal case involving non-airworthy parts swappage has seen the sentencing of those involved, costing the perpetrators a year in prison and about $300,000 in restitution. Daniel Navarro, 50 years old, was the Vice President of Sofly Aviation Services, a parts distributor. Jorge Guerrero, 71, was the firm's Procurement & Asset Management Specialist. Their grift wasn't anything particularly complex or thought out: Sofly would buy cheap parts marked "as removed", and then fake the paperwork... Kermit Weeks has amassed more than 140 vintage military and civilian aircraft during his life. He also established the Fantasy of Flight Museum in Polk City, Florida, along Interstate I-4 which traverses Polk County. To advertise the museum and attract visitors, Weeks mounted a Douglas DC-3 at the I-4 exit near the museum. For readers of a certain age who were mesmerized by the idea

NBAA returned to the grind of angling for fresh blood in the industry, urging congress to implement some of the high-minded plans enclosed in their recent FAA reauthorization legislation. Every so often the industry seems to remember the impending wave of retirements, which is followed by some anxious glances at the unimpressively slim pilot production pipeline. Breaking Down Barriers is a new aviation nonprofit set up by Doug and Gwen Parker and is based in Dallas, Texas. It is committed to eliminating obstacles that many young adults face and to serve as an inspiration and pathway for those who might otherwise have never thought of aviation as a career
