2020 MultiGP Championships Makes Sudden Change of Venue

The League Currently Consists Of 30583 Registered Drone Racers And 760 Global Chapters

As if dealing with the issues surrounding a global pandemic wasn't enough, the folks at MultiGP had the venue for their upcoming championships sold out from under them. MultiGP's Chris Thomas noted that, "We are saddened to announce that the venue for the 2020 MultiGP Championship has been changed to Valkaria Airport in Palm Bay, Florida. MultiGP was extremely disappointed to find out that Daytona Stadium recently changed management, which voided our agreement. With just over two weeks to go before the Championship it was not possible for us to secure another stadium for the event. Fortunately, we do have permission to use an alternate location in nearby Palm Bay which is also in proximity to Orlando Airport, and while it is not a stadium, it will allow us to run a viable Championship."

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera-Part 3

By Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-in-Chief/Test Pilot (Arrogant, Over-Opinionated Know-It-All/Test Dummy)

ANN E-I-C Note: OK… serious apologies for dragging this out… but things are crazy here… we’ve hired some new people, we’re training aggressively, we have a stunning number of new clients, and business is… well, busy. I’ve been editing parts Four and Five and already have the final edit of Part Six underway. We take these reports VERY seriously… and based on some of the drivel I see (especially on YouTube) that tries to pass itself off as a so-called flight report or evaluation, we may be one of the few left, who do. So… without further delay, let’s get on with Part Three… Each seat adjusts easily, A small ball connected to a cable, close up and under the seat, acts as a seat release and then you shift your gluteus maximus (and some of ours are more maximus than others) until yo

OSIRIS-REx TAGs Surface of Asteroid Bennu

Intensely Exciting Imagery Arrives From 200 Million Miles Out

Captured on Oct. 20, 2020 during the OSIRIS-REx mission’s Touch-And-Go (TAG) sample collection event, a series of stunning images now shows the SamCam imager’s field of view as the NASA spacecraft approaches and touches down on asteroid Bennu’s surface, over 200 million miles away from Earth. The sampling event brought the spacecraft all the way down to sample site Nightingale, touching down within three feet of the targeted location. The team on Earth received confirmation at 6:08 p.m. EDT that successful touchdown occurred. Preliminary data show the one-foot-wide sampling head touched Bennu’s surface for approximately 6 seconds, after which the spacecraft performed a back-away burn.

Classic Aero-TV: Introducing The MD302--Mid-Continent's Standby Attitude Module

From 2012: Extensive Expertise in Backup Solutions Makes MCIA Uniquely Qualified In This Market

There's no such thing, in aviation, as TOO much caution... hence the reason the industry has expended so much time, energy and talent in creating backup systems for critical functions in today's aircraft. One of the true leaders in the aero-backup technology arena is Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics. Their latest offering is an impressive effort to create an even more redundant cockpit... and to do so with a bit of technology that not only provides critical standby info, but does so elegantly and easily. The MD302 Standby Attitude Module (SAM) is an entirely self-contained, solid-state instrument that provides attitude, altitude, airspeed and slip information to the pilot during normal operation or in the case of primary instrument failure.

HX-21 'Blackjacks' Test MV-22s On LPD-Class Ships

HX-21 Provides Developmental Flight Test And Evaluation Of Rotary-Wing And Tilt-Rotor Aircraft

A team of pilots and engineers from Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (HX) 21 recently joined colleagues from other Navy and Marine Corps commands to conduct MV-22 Osprey landing and ship compatibility tests aboard the amphibious transport dock USS New York (LPD 21). The testing also included the first shipboard landings for the Navy's new CMV-22B Carrier Onboard Delivery (COD) variant of the Osprey. Over the course of the 10-day detachment in July, the test team flew 180 shipboard approaches and landings, totaling just under 45 hours of flight testing, to develop a better understanding of how pilots can successfully avoid the effects of a phenomenon called “recirculation” when flying to and from ships.
