AMA Drone Report 07.11.19: AMA Exec Council, DJI Objects, More FAA Restrictions

Also: Oshkosh Awaits!, MMC Partners W/Yuneec, Drone Strike Assessment, No Drone... Turtle!

Late last month, the AMA Executive Council and the Government Affairs team took a trip to Washington, D.C. to advocate for our hobby. Throughout these meetings, AMA emphasized their commitment to safety and education -- also highlighting examples of how flying model aircraft is a pathway to STEM-related to careers and the work we do to support local charities. Importantly, AMA discussed the upcoming FAA rule-makings for recreational UAS, and were encouraged by the positive dialogue.

Airborne-Unmanned 07.09.19: NUAIR-Flytrex, Airbus Delivers, Impossible Aerospace

Also: Oshkosh Coming Soon!, Drone Investment, DJI Objects, VerdeGo Aero

Following tests completed by Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research (NUAIR) at the New York UAS Test Site in Rome, New York, Israel-based drone company Flytrex, has had the parachute on its package delivery drones validated as compliant with industry standards. This is the second parachute standard validation performed by NUAIR. Currently, the FAA prohibits most drones from being flown directly over people. Professional drone operators can apply for a waiver from that restriction if they can demonstrate they have robust safety mitigations in place including having a validated parachute. Airbus and the Hauts-de-France region have signed a partnership agreement to assess the economic development potential of air deliveries on a regional scale. The Hauts-de-France region aims to become Europe’s logistics hub. Regional

FAA Issues Update On Unleaded Avgas Replacement

Four Fuels Under Evaluation During The First Half Of This Year
