Airborne 04.19.19: Spin Record Attempt, Falcon Heavy, BendixKing

Aerobatic pilot Spencer Suderman is gearing up to attempt a new world record for the most inverted flat spins in an aircraft. This will be Suderman’s second shot at the record after he aborted an attempt in February. “I entered the spin and the plane went around faster than expected at altitude, so fast that the transverse G-loads were far greater than I was prepared for, which made it hard to breath. That coupled with the negative G-loads from being inverted made the situation intolerable.” Rough seas caused damage to the SpaceX Falcon Heavy center core after its second flight. The company launched the Arabsat-6A communications satellite in its first commercial flight for Falcon Heavy. The two outer boosters landed safely back at Cape Canaveral, but the center core, which landed on

AMA Drone Report 04.18.19: Flt Over People, Not Drone Fault, FAA ANPRM

Also: Gatwick Drone 'Chaos', Fenway Park Foolishness, Utah Legislature, Parrot ANAFI Thermal

AMA has responded to the FAA's NPRM on the Operation of sUAS Over People. Overall, the AMA believes the proposed rulemakings on flying over people and night flying are a step toward opening the airspace for more commercial unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operators. For model aircraft hobbyists, however, they do not anticipate these rules will have a significant impact on their existing guidelines for safe and responsible operation. "...For years, our National Model Aircraft Safety Code has been recognized by Congress, as well as state legislatures, as a safe and effective means of managing the model aircraft community. Our members know where, when and how to fly safely and they do not present a risk to the airspace," the AMA commented. On March 29, 2018, a pilot and passenger departed Thames Aerodrome in N

YUP... its THAT time of year again! This is ANN's infamous April First Episode... strap in, and get ready to be fooled, bamboozled and led astray! Drone Skeet has been selected as a demonstration sport for the 2028 Summer Olympics, which will be held in Los Angeles, CA. Teams will consist of shooters and pilots competing in timed rounds. Each team will have 5 minutes to shoot down as many of the opposing team's drones as it can, then they will switch sides and the other team will have an opportunity to shoot. At the end of 6 rounds, the team which has downed the most drones will be declared the winner. Partial credit will be awarded for drones that are damaged but can still fly. SpaceX engineers are scrambling to resolve a possible orbital conflict 500 miles above the surface of Mars. W

Airborne-Unmanned 04.16.19: Wing Delivers, SpaceIL Attempt, Utah Legislature

Also: AUVSI Keynote Speakers, CA SAR Upgrades, UAVOS Advanced Data Link, FLIR Invests

Google’s ‘Wing’ has launched a drone delivery service in North Canberra, Australia. Through Wing’s service, customers can order a variety of items on Wing’s mobile app, and have them delivered directly to their homes via UAS in minutes. Since 2014, Wing has been testing UAS delivery in Australia. Over the last year and a half, Wing has made more than 3,000 deliveries to Australian homes in Fernleigh Park, Royalla and Bonython communities, delivering food, small household items and over the counter chemist products. In what may be one of the ultimate unmanned vehicle adventures of 2019, SpaceIL got ever so close, but in the end was not able to land its Beresheet lunar lander on the surface of the Moon. The landing attempt was planned for 3:25 p.m. Thursday afternoon. At about 3:24, co
