The May 2019 issue of Aerospace America is live. Try the Aeropuzzler: Call for Help: A small plane has crash-landed on a remote tropical island. The plane’s emergency beacon and radio were shattered, and no one filed a flight plan. Luckily, a sailor among the passengers has a VHF radio with just enough power left for a mayday call. The pilot tells him to make the call, but an engineer in the group yells, “Stop!” She explains that the weather forecast calls for calm winds and a strong temperature inversion tomorrow. What phenomenon does she hope to tap into? And, don't miss May's cover story "All Aboard," about progess toward urban air mobility, by Keith Button.
