Airborne 04.18.17: Bk160 Gabriél, Fuller v Airlines, Drone NIMBYs

Also: Co WWII Museum, Aero-Calendar, AIAA, B/E Aerospace, Shuttle Tile, Gripen Biofuel, Drone Bust

Italian aircraft manufacturer Blackshape introduced the new Bk160 – Gabriél at AERO Friedrichshafen. The company said that the Bk160 – Gabriél represents a major milestone in the small aircraft sector with a full glass-cockpit resembling modern military trainers. The airplanes aggressive attitude with sporty finishing are inspired by the hand-made tailor style with a touch of "Italianness" in its design. Former AOPA Boss, Craig Fuller, continues to make a lot of sense as he opines that we should be wary of what he says are "alternative facts" around airspace modernization talks. Fuller says that White House Economic Advisor Gary Cohn participated in a recent "White House Town Hall meeting" focused on infrastructure and other initiatives.

Drones DO wind up in some of the most amazing places... As evidence by the Universities of Bristol and Cambridge and their team of volcanologists and engineers -- who used the UAVs to collect measurements from directly within volcanic clouds, along with visual and thermal images of inaccessible volcano peaks. As part of a 10-day research trip, the team carried out proof-of-concept flights at and over the summits of Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego and Volcán de Pacaya. A tethered drone was part of the security plan at this year's Boston Marathon. Massachusetts-based CyPhy Works has disclosed that its tethered drone, PARC, is part of the safety and security measures developed for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) at the 2017 Boston Marathon.

A long time in the works, Diamond's new DA50-V made its public debut at AERO Friedrichshafen 2017 just two weeks after its maiden flight.

Maximum takeoff weight of the DA50-V prototype is 3,968 lbs offering a payload of 1,256 lbs. Another airport is in peril as Detroit's Mayor Duggan looks to a study about what to do with Coleman A. Young Municipal Airport. There hasn’t been a commercial flight at what is commonly called ‘City Airport’ for 15 years, so the city is now looking at closing the field.
