The Federal Aviation Administration has released a report that is a framework for allowing law enforcement to track small devices, such as drones. The system is seen as necessary before companies such as Amazon can begin using unmanned drones for package delivery.

To All,

Aviation industry and business publications are sounding an alarm about a growing crisis in the airline industry – a shortage of qualified pilots. Furthermore, the pilot shortage is anticipated to endure well into the foreseeable future. Furthermore, the pilot shortage is happening at a time of unprecedented growth in the airline industry. The latest Boeing forecast predicts that the worldwide fleet of aircraft will more than double in the next 20 years, while the worldwide pilot pipeline is proving insufficient to the task of creating new pilots to crew not only current, but future aircraft.

Due to the Pilot Shortage, SkyWest Airlines is partnered with Upper Limit Aviation through their Pilot Pathway Program. Students attending ULA become part of the SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program while pursuing their ratings and commercial license. Graduates get preferential treatment over other job candidates and a guaranteed interview with SkyWest.

ULA is also partnered with Charter College which provides online Associates and Bachelors of Science degrees in Aviation Science and Professional Pilot. Students often work at ULA while completing their online college degree. In the next couple of months Charter College expects to have their re-accreditation process completed. At that time, you should be able to enroll with Charter aviation https://chartercollegeaviation.com/locations/upper-limit-aviation and apply for FASFA and student loans. Please feel free to contact the Aviation Director, Kyle Beebe with any questions. Kyle.beebe@prospecteducation.com

Please review our information and feel free to contact us with any questions as you navigate this process. We welcome you to visit one of our locations for a tour of the facility and to meet directly with staff. Thank you for considering ULA for your training needs.

Have a wonderful holiday season.

All the Best,

Hey You High Rollers!!!!

1963 Studebaker
Avanti R2 Supercharged


Rare and desirable supercharged Avanti R2 in its original colors with matching-numbers engine and four-speed manual transmission.



Our featured 1963 Avanti is a genuine and highly desirable, numbers matching R2 4-speed example that has received a great deal of restoration work, with careful attention paid to preserving original and correct components. The car has seen regular, sympathetic use and maintenance and remains in wonderful order. Copies of the original build sheets and dealer invoices confirm this car's correct, original specification (supercharged, floor shift four speed manual). Finished in its original colors of turquoise over a handsome turquoise and beige interior, this is a super-attractive example of Studebaker's most famous car. The fiberglass body is straight and free of typical waves and warping that sometimes afflicts these cars, while the gaps and panel fit are consistent and even. Paint work, in the original Turquoise, is very well presented and the car rides on with proper factory steel wheels fitted with the signature Avanti polished wheel covers and wrapped with proper narrow whitewall tires.............

Drones from Falcons???

Air Force-backed researchers developing drones inspired by falcons
The US Air Force has backed research in the UK focused on developing drones modeled on the peregrine falcon's prey-tracking abilities. "We think that the finer details of how peregrines operate could certainly find application in small drones designed to remove other drones from protected airspace," said Oxford University's Graham Taylor, leader of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
