Airborne 03.27.20: FAA Grounds Collings, OSH20 Update, Mars Rover Selfie

Also: COVID-19 Relief, SpaceX Rocket Motor Failure, Denver Metroplex Project, Etihad Cargo 787s

The FAA has issued an order immediately rescinding the authority it had granted to The Collings Foundation to conduct Living History flights in its classic WWII aircraft. The FAA had granted such relief in Exemption No. 6540 and extended this relief for successive two year periods. The most recent exemption the FAA issued was Exemption No. 6540P, on March 22, 2018. This decision also denies the petitioner’s request for extension and amendment, submitted on August 29, 2019, and supplemented on November 8, 2019. With all of the aviation and other events that have been cancelled around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the obvious question floating around the aviation community is 'what about Oshkosh?' So far, the EAA is planning to hold the event in July as scheduled. But as with everything co

Airborne-Unmanned 03.24.20: UAVs Respond to 911, FAA RID RFI, Drones Aid Koalas

Also: Altitude Angel-Involi Partner, Quantix Mapper UAS, Planck Aerosystems, Coyote Block 2 Counter-Drone Weapon

Impossible Aerospace has announced a product called Air Support that it says will transform the world’s cities and the way they respond to emergencies. Impossible Air Support, the company said, is a turn-key program that lets cities dispatch drones directly to the scene of their 911 calls to improve emergency response times. Mounted on top of tall city buildings, the drones are controlled by police officers and firefighters from secure command stations within their departments. Once deployed, they can provide a live video feed of an evolving situation to responders on the ground, intervene in a situation with sirens or lights, or even deliver crucial supplies like life jackets or AED’s. The FAA has posted a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input from the manned aviation

AMA Drone Report 03.26.20: Remote ID RFI, UAV Dodgeball, UAS Reg Extended

Also: Mars Rover Takes Selfie, AMA Working Remotely, Drones Save Koalas, ANN's Infamous April 1st Edition

The FAA has posted a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input from the manned aviation community regarding whether and/or how they can potentially receive and use UAS remote ID information to further enhance safety, by reducing collision risks at lower altitudes. The FAA says the posting is not an RFP. Drones can do many things, but avoiding obstacles is not their strongest suit yet – especially when they move quickly. Although many flying robots are equipped with cameras that can detect obstacles, it typically takes from 20 to 40 milliseconds for the drone to process the image and react. It may seem quick, but it is not enough to avoid a bird or another drone, or even a static obstacle when the drone itself is flying at high speed. This can be a problem when drones are used in unpred

We need YOUR ideas for how we might step up the insanity for 2020! I kid you not... as I look over all the stories we've already prepped, we are going to cause serious keyboard damage as people snort their soft drinks all over the place when they start reading this year's edition.
