Airborne 09.25.17: PAL-V 'Flying Car', Tecnam P2012, G650 TC Anniversary

Also: Virgin Atlantic, SpaceX Video, Wipaire, Women And Drones, Boeing 787, Ameri-King, BelugaXL

A PAL-V vice president plans to fly around the world in his personal "flying car", though no firm date has been set to begin the attempt. PAL-V VP of sales Mark Jennings-Bates said that he plans to fly his personal aircraft on the attempt,  accompanied by a second PAL-V that will record the flight on video. Jennings-Bates said that he hopes to depart from and return to San Francisco with the flight taking about 90 days. The company has not officially announced the attempt, but plans for the flight are reportedly well underway. Fuel management will be a critical issue for the flight, as the PAL-V Liberty has a range of about 270 nautical miles while flying. Tecnam has announced an agreement with U.S.-based commuter airline Cape Air on a delivery schedule for the first 20 of 100 Tecnam P2012 Travell

Airborne 09.26.17: Singer Decision, FAA Funding Defeat, ForeFlight Update

The legal system continues to recraft the potential regulatory landscape for UAS. In a rush to try to control something they likely don't understand very well, the city of Newton, MA passed a law last December that banned drone flights below 400 feet over private and public property without the consent of the land owner, and required local registration. Now, though, that law has been overturned by a federal judge in Massachusetts, thanks to the efforts of a  physician and inventor living in Newton, Dr. Michael Singer, who is also an FAA certified drone pilot. The inability of the House to pass their ill-conceived ATC Privatization bill is causing new delays for government processes. In a late Monday vote to authorize a six-month extension of funding for the FAA, somet

FAA Continuing Resolution Defeated In Late Monday Vote

245-171 Vote Fails To Attain 2/3rd's Majority Needed For Extension

In a Monday vote to authorize a six-month extension of funding for the FAA, something strange happened... With a September 30th deadline for the required extension just days away, Senior Democrats expressed disapproval for a distantly related part of the bill that concerned flood insurance and tax credits for hurricane victims and voted against the whole effort... failing in the latest attempt to keep the FAA fully operational by a vote of 245-171... less than the required 2/3rd’s majority needed to see passage in the current ‘Fast Track’ effort to see the bill through to completion. The next step is likely to be a bit simpler effort that will require but a basic majority... though that effort may see serious opposition, as well...

The legal system continues to recraft the potential regulatory landscape for UAS. In a rush to try to control something they likely don't understand very well, the city of Newton, MA passed a law last December that banned drone flights below 400 feet over private and public property without the consent of the land owner, and required local registration. Now, though, that law has been overturned by a federal judge in Massachusetts, thanks to the efforts of a  physician and inventor living in Newton, Dr. Michael Singer, who is also an FAA certified drone pilot. Singer challenged four sections of the local ordinance, representing himself. He said that the City's ordinance was moot because, "it attempts to regulate an almost exclusively federal area of law."

Aerodynamic Improvements Result In Substantially Higher Speeds, Improved Range And Climb Rate
