The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Monday ordered a full ground stop at all airports on the west coast, as North Korea fired what appeared to be a ballistic missile into the Sea of ​​Japan.

The shutdown lasted about seven minutes, according to San Diego media reports, citing radio traffic and officials at the San Diego International Airport.

Update (1/5, 23:15): This story has been updated with comments from the San Diego International Airport.

Airport spokeswoman Sabrina LoPiccolo told Newsweek the airport was loaded with air traffic from a national stopover around 2:30 p.m. PT. No reason was given for the shutdown, which lasted around five to seven minutes, she said.

“We really don’t have more details,” she said.

The FAA did not release further details of the ground shutdown and did not respond to a request for comment from News week Monday evening.

An FAA ground stop is an order that orders flights scheduled to land at affected airports to remain at their point of departure. Ground stops can be airport or region specific and can be related to weather conditions, equipment failures or extreme events. In particular, the FAA issued an order following the September 11 attacks.

The South Korean and Japanese armies said North Korea launched the missile early Tuesday morning, making it the second launch by the reclusive country in less than a week.

It is not clear how far the missile has traveled, and details of the launch have not been disclosed. The South Korean and American military said they were investigating the incident. Guam’s Homeland Security and Civil Defense offices were monitoring reports of the launch, but there was no threat to Guam, a U.S. territory that serves a major military hub in the Pacific.

North Korea said it successfully launched a hypersonic missile last week.

Hypersonic weapons fly at speeds greater than Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound. Their speed makes them difficult for missile defense systems to detect and stop.

But South Korea said the projectile was a ballistic missile and cast doubt on North Korea’s acquisition of hypersonic weapon technology.

The first tests on Jan. 5 came after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un told a key political rally that he would bolster the country’s military might. Kim had already started a diplomatic effort with former US President Donald Trump to ease sanctions against the country in exchange for giving up some of its nuclear capabilities.

The Biden administration has said it is ready to resume talks with North Korea without preconditions. But so far, North Korea has rejected the offers, saying the United States must withdraw sanctions and joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea.

It’s a breaking story that Newsweek is following.

The flight ban leaves Hong Kong executives stranded outside the territory https://pilotin.org/the-flight-ban-leaves-hong-kong-executives-stranded-outside-the-territory/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 08:42:35 +0000 https://pilotin.org/the-flight-ban-leaves-hong-kong-executives-stranded-outside-the-territory/

International business groups in Hong Kong are begging the government to restart flights as a rating agency warned that a ban on overseas travel would deter companies from using Hong Kong as their regional headquarters.

Executives who returned home for Christmas have been stranded outside the Asian financial hub after authorities suspended flights from eight countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, to protect the city from the variant of the Omicron coronavirus.

David Graham, executive director of the British Chambers of Commerce in Hong Kong, said the “unfortunate” theft ban had taken many by surprise.

“This will inevitably cause considerable disruption and inconvenience, especially for the many Hong Kong-based executives and employees who traveled to the UK over Christmas time to be with family and who were considering returning to Hong Kong in early January. “, did he declare. the Financial Times.

“We very much hope that the ban will be for a very limited period given the quarantine and testing measures already in place for those returning from the UK.”

Hong Kong pursues a “zero-Covid” policy in line with that of China. On Sunday, the port city of Tianjin began mass testing its 14 million residents after the detection of 20 locally transmitted cases, including at least two involving Omicron. Tianjin borders Beijing, which will host the Winter Olympics early next month.

Over the past week, Hong Kong reimposed numerous social distancing regulations after an outbreak that was sown by the flight crew of Cathay Pacific, who had been exempted from traveler quarantine orders.

The territory’s government has also come under fire after 13 senior officials and 19 lawmakers were quarantined over the weekend after attending a large birthday party – in violation of official guidelines for avoiding large gatherings. Two of the 170 participants then tested positive for Covid-19.

The quarantine order was then lifted for many participants after it was determined that one of the two cases was a false positive. Hong Kong’s first “patriots only” legislature is due to hold its opening session on Wednesday.

Flights from the eight nations were banned for 14 days on Wednesday last week. Other airlines, such as Air Canada and Virgin Atlantic, have temporarily halted flights because they were unable to meet the Hong Kong government’s quarantine requirements for crews.

The government said tougher measures needed to be implemented as the city faced the risk of a “major epidemic”.

Fitch Ratings, however, said the new restrictions could weaken Hong Kong’s economic growth prospects. “We believe that the tightening of restrictions on international arrivals will create further obstacles to the territory’s ability to serve as a regional headquarters for foreign multinationals.”

Hong Kong also recently introduced a mandatory seven-day quarantine for pilots and crews on cargo flights. The measure has wreaked havoc on flight schedules, with Cathay Pacific reducing its cargo capacity to 20% and passenger capacity to 2% of pre-pandemic levels.

The latest flight cancellations have prompted warnings of a sharp rise in food prices.

Those wishing to enter Hong Kong from most countries are already subject to three weeks of isolation in a hotel and, in some cases, a government quarantine facility.

The restrictions prevented the deaths and strains on health systems seen elsewhere, but cut the city off from the rest of the world.

At the same time, however, the city has failed to persuade very old people to get vaccinated, with just over 20% of those aged 80 and over vaccinated.

International business groups have previously warned that Hong Kong is risking its crown as the region’s top financial center if it does not reopen its borders.

“The flight restrictions add further stress, cost and uncertainty for business executives living in Hong Kong,” said Tara Joseph, director of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, which represents 1,400 companies on Chinese territory.

“Some people are stuck, others are afraid of what will happen next, and there is no indication when it will end.”

The US Consulate in Hong Kong said there was a need for “increased dialogue and transparency regarding travel, testing and quarantine measures that affect Hong Kong as a place to live and trade.”

Microsoft Flight Simulator Fokker F28, Concorde and RV-14 Get new screenshots and development updates; C-17 lands in new video https://pilotin.org/microsoft-flight-simulator-fokker-f28-concorde-and-rv-14-get-new-screenshots-and-development-updates-c-17-lands-in-new-video/ Fri, 07 Jan 2022 18:58:42 +0000 https://pilotin.org/microsoft-flight-simulator-fokker-f28-concorde-and-rv-14-get-new-screenshots-and-development-updates-c-17-lands-in-new-video/


Third-party developers have provided new resources and updates on upcoming aircraft add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Third-party developers have provided new resources and updates on upcoming aircraft add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

We start with an overview of the Fokker F28 scholarship by Just a flight, showing quite a few exotic liveries, as well as a small development update.

“The development work on the visuals of the aircraft (models, textures, animations and liveries) is almost complete and is being tested, as well as the flight dynamics for each of the four variants (-1000 to -4000 ).

Systems coding and a huge set of custom Wwise sounds are now underway and we’ll be sharing previews of these in the coming months as we work on the release later this year.

Then is CC designs, offering an update and new screenshots of his Concorde in progress.

“A big step forward has been the creation of a flight model that reflects the unique characteristics of a hang glider. In short, MSFS just doesn’t support them properly yet, so it takes smart work to implement true delta – MSFS seems to think the wings are just straight and the fuselages are just cylindrical, with nothing between the two. Thanks to the hard work of Paul Frimston and CodenameJack, as well as a brilliant idea on my part, Concorde now flies well and is on track to fully implement the features of its flight model.

On top of that, work continued on the cockpit with more animated instruments, more modeling work, and more coding to keep everything “alive” and operational. Considering the large number of instruments, this will take some time. This essential work will be a priority over the next two weeks before I can start thinking about working on other ‘nice to have’, but not essential, areas such as the passenger cabin. “

We also hear from SimWorks Studios, which provided a roadmap for its development, including the Van’s Aircraft RV-14 (of which we get some screenshots) and the upcoming Pilatus PC-12.

“RV-14: The artistic side is done and the code work should be done overnight. The flight model is in very good condition. The sounds are there and at a very good stage, with fine tuning and AI being the last thing to do for this task. We’re working on a February release, barring any unforeseen issues. The RV-14 will be followed by the RV-10 later this year, with the RV-8 and RV-7 in late 2022 or early 2023.

Pilatus PC-12: We recently signed a license agreement with Pilatus Aircraft to integrate their PC-12 into Microsoft Flight Simulator! Our current plan is to make two versions of PC-12: one will be the PC-12/47 which will be delivered with a mixed glass / vapor cockpit. Our goal is to release the aircraft around the middle of the year, built to the same standards as the Kodiak. The second would be the Pilatus PC-12NG with a full-fledged custom glass cockpit, but due to the code work required this will happen in 2023.

Finally, we can take a look at a landing of the free C-17 Globemaster III software from Delta Simulations.

If you want to know more, you can follow the development of the aircraft on the developer’s site Discord server.

Recently we posted our last interview with Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann and we heard more about Microsoft’s plans for the next few months, including World Update Australia.

United Airlines flight attendant has worked with stolen identity for 23 years https://pilotin.org/united-airlines-flight-attendant-has-worked-with-stolen-identity-for-23-years/ Mon, 03 Jan 2022 16:41:05 +0000 https://pilotin.org/united-airlines-flight-attendant-has-worked-with-stolen-identity-for-23-years/

That’s quite a story – a United Airlines flight attendant was arrested after working for 23 years using the stolen identity of someone he had never met, who died at a young age.

Brazilian becomes United flight attendant for 23 years

Ricardo Cesar Guedes is a Brazilian born in 1972 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. However, for the past 23 years he has worked as a United Airlines flight attendant under the name Eric Ladd. How could this happen?

  • More than two decades ago, Guedes managed to convince the authorities to issue him an American passport in the name of William Ericson Ladd (which Guedes later shortened to Eric Ladd)
  • The “real” Ladd was born in 1974 (two years after Guedes) in Atlanta, and tragically died in a car accident at the age of four.
  • Sure enough, Guedes received a passport in Ladd’s name, and even renewed it several times, and also succeeded in obtaining a residence permit for his partner using his stolen identity.
  • Guedes then started working as a flight attendant at United Airlines in the late 1990s using his stolen identity, where he worked until recently.
Guedes worked as a United flight attendant for 23 years

How did the flight attendant get arrested?

Guedes worked successfully at United Airlines for over two decades, so how did he finally get caught? Well, his identity started to unravel in 2020:

  • In December 2020, Guedes attempted to renew his passport under his stolen identity, and the State Department noticed “various indicators of fraud,” so an investigation was launched.
  • Ladd’s mother was approached in July 2021, and it was the first time she learned that someone was using the identity of her deceased son.
  • Investigators were able to compare the fingerprints submitted by Guedes to Brazil with the fingerprints he submitted to the United States under Ladd’s identity, and they matched
  • Guedes was eventually arrested at Houston Airport (IAH); federal agents would wait for it to pass through a checkpoint known to crew members (which is the entrance that eligible flight attendants use to enter the secure area of ​​the airport, without having to go through security )

The man now faces several charges, including:

  • False identity theft of a US citizen
  • Providing a false statement in a passport application
  • Fraudulent entry into the secure area of ​​an airport

United Airlines said Guedes is no longer employed by the airline and that United has “an extensive screening process for new employees that complies with federal legal requirements.” And indeed, it seems the government, rather than United Airlines, is to blame for this mistake.

Guedes was finally arrested at Houston airport

At the end of the line

A Brazilian stole an American’s identity in the 1990s and used it to work as a flight attendant at United Airlines for 23 years. He was only caught while applying for a passport renewal in late 2020, when authorities noticed something was suspicious.

The man was finally recently arrested at the airport, and now faces charges, in addition of course to losing his job. What a story…

Deaths from Covid-19 in Eastern Europe exceed one million

Coronavirus deaths in Eastern Europe topped 1 million on Thursday, according to a Reuters count, like the Omicron variant threatened to fall on the region. Three of the five countries reporting the highest number of daily deaths in Europe are from the east, including Russia, Poland and Ukraine.

As of Wednesday morning, more than 2,280 flights had been canceled worldwide for the day, with more than 740 flights in, to and from the United States, according to the FlightAware flight tracking website.

As of Tuesday, more than 3,100 flights were canceled, of which 1,291 were expected to take off in, to and from the United States.

U.S. carriers Delta Air Lines and Alaska Airlines were among those to cancel flights this week, with the two collectively canceling hundreds of flights on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Delta said it was working to change the route and replace some planes.

Meanwhile, Alaska said as Wednesday and Thursday approached, it was proactively reducing departures from Seattle by about 20% to allow more time to de-ice planes amid winter storms in the west. the United States.

Snowy weather in the Pacific Northwest contributed to the cancellation of more than 110 flights scheduled to land at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Monday alone, according to Reuters.

Amid the travel chaos, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday they were not considering recommending a Covid vaccine warrant for domestic flights after the possibility was suggested by Dr Anthony Fauci, the most the country’s leading expert on infectious diseases.

“Right now what we’re talking about are ways to get people vaccinated,” CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told National Public Radio. “Certainly, domestic flights have been a topic of conversation, but it’s not something we are revisiting.

Tuesday the United States hits record seven-day average of cases of 262,034 cases, surpassing a record of 252,776 cases set on Jan.11, according to an analysis of NBC News data. Data can be skewed by days with abnormal data entries, which are common around the holiday period.

According to the CDC, omicron accounted for 58.6% of all Covid cases in the country during the week ending Dec. 25, while the delta variant accounted for 41.1% of cases.

Globally, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday that the number of recorded Covid cases rose 11% last week, compared to the previous week. The largest increase occurred in the Americas, according to data from the United Nations health agency.

Flight disruptions continue with thousands more cancellations as Omicron cuts airline crews. https://pilotin.org/flight-disruptions-continue-with-thousands-more-cancellations-as-omicron-cuts-airline-crews/ Mon, 27 Dec 2021 17:49:00 +0000 https://pilotin.org/flight-disruptions-continue-with-thousands-more-cancellations-as-omicron-cuts-airline-crews/

Flight disruptions in the United States showed little sign of slowing down on Monday, as many people made their first trip in nearly two years, and Dr.Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s foremost disease expert infectious diseases, again raised the possibility of a vaccination requirement for air travel.

At least 2,600 more flights were canceled on Monday, including around 1,000 US flights, as the highly transmissible variant Omicron sends daily workloads to parts of the United States reaching levels above the pandemic peak last winter.

While cancellations made up only a small percentage of all flights, the problem threatened to spread to the vacation week.

“When you make vaccination a requirement, it is another incentive to get more people vaccinated,” Dr Fauci said. noted on MSNBC Monday. “If you want to do this with domestic flights, I think this is something that should be seriously considered.”
