The FAA has signaled a sea-change in its attitude about display of own-ship position on electronic flight bags (EFBs) and has issued new Advisory Circular (AC) guidance supporting that feature. The agency also is stepping back from in-depth involvement with operators in managing their EFB programs. AC120-76D replaces the -C version issued in 2014, which for commercial operators specifically prohibited use of geo-referencing or own-ship position display while using moving-map features in the air.
Lockheed Martin (Stand 1190) has selected Rockwell Collins to provide the Flight2 all-glass integrated flight deck for Greece's Hellenic Navy P-3B Orion four-engine turboprops. The modification is part of the Hellenic Navy P-3B maritime patrol aircraft modernization and upgrade program, which includes a mid-life upgrade to extend service life by 15,000 hours, phased depot maintenance, a Greece-indigenous mission integration and management system and the avionics upgrade.
ATR (Stand 836) has received certification for a new vibration monitoring system (VMS) that records and allows fine-tuning of propeller vibration on ATR turboprops. The VMS is manufactured by Meggitt Sensing Systems. The VMS will be available on new ATRs in March 2018 and for retrofit to in-service ATRs via a service bulletin. The new VMS eliminates the need to arrange for ground testing for vibration monitoring or to send a technician on a revenue flight with monitoring equipment.
Oh happy day, the FAA truly has changed for the better, now allowing pro pilots to use own-ship position on tablet moving maps, something the FAA fought tooth and nail for the past 7 years. Watch for amazing new EFB features as ADS-B rolls out! https://t.co/l4c7CHl2g9
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
