The FAA has launched its "12 Days of Drones" campaign to educate the public about the best practices inherent to the hobby. While drones have settled into a somewhat common and well understood hobbyist aircraft or videography assistant, public understanding and familiarity with UAV regulations remains lower than desired.The agency is sharing a specific topic or bundle of knowledge for each of 12 days through December 17th, building a short and effective knowledge base for incoming drone pilots. Skyborne Airline Academy celebrated the achievement of 2 recent ATPL UK graduates joining Flyby Technology as Beyond Line of Visual Sight Drone Operators. The students now put their training to use, supporting flight operations for an NHS trial to evaluate drug delivery for the Isle of Wight.

Swiss Investigators Reveal Cause of 2016 Glider Crash

Pilot Hyperfocused on Filming Mountain, Brought Wing Into Contact With Ridge Face

A Swiss SUST report has been released in regards to a 2016 glider crash wherein a DG-800S glider crashed against the Mittaghore Mountains while on a leisure flight. The report cites the pilot's preoccupation with manipulating his cellular phone to film while flying, resulting in an inadvertent collision between the aircraft's right wing and a nearby mountain ridge. The Glider was towed into flight from Saanen Airfield on July 6, 2016, where the pilot released the cable to fly along the ridge of Sanetschsee and its pass. Passing through the Arpelistock, the pilot turned towards the nearby mountains with the hopes of approaching the large, imposing summit of Mittaghore for some footage.

A joint study on the impact of 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on both engines of a commercial jet have shown highly promising results in the early phases of analysis, says Airbus. Working with fellow industry veterans Rolls-Royce, fuel production specialist Neste, and German Research Centre DLR, the test is the first time that both engines of a comme
