Airborne 11.22.17: AOPA Plays Icon Apologist, Lancair Mako, Mooney Ovation Ultra

Also: Airbus A380 Deal, Acting PM Belize In A/C Accident, Hartzell Propeller, Crop Duster Shooting

ANN’s senior editorial staff was stunned to read a recent article by the AOPA Air Safety Institute’s Executive Director, Richard McSpadden, in which the ASI Boss not only seemed to offer a probable cause long before the NTSB report is due (and even before the NTSB Prelim was published) but seemed intent on appointing itself an apologist for all things Icon. This piece lauded Icon and their errant CEO, Kirk Hawkins, despite the fact that the company has proven itself incompetent on a number of levels, has engaged in fraudulent statements and conduct, has acted wildly and recklessly through its promo and demo programs, is over a half decade behind original schedules, has over-priced the aircraft to a point where it is now twice to three times the price of a competitive product and well over

ANN Wishes Our Readers, Listeners And Viewers A VERY Happy Thanksgiving Holiday

Yes... We Will Be On A Holiday Schedule For The Rest Of Week

As the Aero-News staff observes the US holiday of Thanksgiving on Thursday, we wanted to let our readers know that ANN will still be on the job, reporting breaking news in the aviation and aerospace fields as it happens -- in Real Time -- just like always. Aero-News will be publishing at a slightly reduced level on November 23rd and 24th, as our staffers spend some time with their families... some of whom may not recognize them away from their computers. Basically, we're going to treat the four-day weekend as just that: a four-day weekend, meaning you'll still be able to find several new stories each day on our website.

Airborne-Unmanned 11.21.17: Resolute Eagle UAS, Aerotain Skye, Novus Unmanned 17

Also: Mars Drone, ASTM Drones Standards, Huerta Reflects On His Tenure, UAS Delivers Acceptance Letters

On Nov. 8, PAE ISR’s Resolute Eagle UAS completed its first commercial airspace flight. The flight took place at the Pan-Pacific UAS Test Range—located at Pendleton Airport in Oregon—operating under a FAA Certificate of Waiver. A Group 3 fixed wing tactical UAS, the Resolute Eagle is known for delivering advanced performance in payload capacity, available power, and a small logistical footprint to support various types of missions. The FAA has granted a waiver from the agency’s small drone rules (Part 107) to Cevitasnow in Columbus, OH, to allow the company to operate a helium-filled Aerotain Skye tethered aircraft over people on the ground. The Aerotain Skye resembles a tethered floating beach ball, but is technically an “aircraft.” It carries a camera and sm

A bill that includes a return to civilian drone registration has been included in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018.
