Airborne 06.17.19: Riley Flies!, An-124s Ordered Seized, Contaminated Fuel

Also: FAA Revokes, SAIB For Collins Pro Line, EAA Chapter 534 Scholarship, AAR Airlift Penalized

Some times... we forget what this aviation gig is all about... we get so wrapped up in the technology, the regs, the numbers, the physics, the business... that we often forget that flying is fun, inspirational, joyful and a motivating force in many a young life. Meet Riley Speidel... a 14 year old young lady who has been her Dad’s flying buddy for quite a while and his student throughout... over 100 flight hours, so far. Riley has been training in a motorglider, which allows her to solo at an earlier age than a conventional powered aircraft... and this one, the Pipistrel Sinus, is a particularly good trainer with excellent visibility, solid handling and serious soaring ability, to boot. Here’s one major ‘repo’ job... A Court in Kiev has ordered the seizure of five An-124s operat

AMA Drone Report 06.13.19: UK Drone Protest, New Amazon UAV, SafeAir Mavic

Also: Drone Safety At UAS Symposium, Microsoft FlightSim, Urban Air Mobility, Drone Airspace Webinar

Model airplane pilots in the UK are taking issue with proposed drone regulations set to go into effect in November, saying that the new rules could cause harm to their long-standing hobby. Representatives of the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) met the Aviation Minister Baroness Vere last week to discuss the situation. Under the proposal, the UK CAA would require the operators of all unmanned aircraft, including model airplanes, to pay a registration fee equivalent to about $21, acquire a license and take a competency test every three years. BMFA chief executive David Phipps said the proposed regulations should not be applied to model airplane pilots. Amazon has taken the wraps off their latest drone concept -- combining elements of a rotorcraft and fixed wing airframe. This concept may serv

ANN Social Media Program (ANN-SMP) Expanded For Oshkosh 2019!

ANN Keeps Pushing Aviation Media (Kicking and Screaming) Further Into The 21st Century...

ANN is, again, radically updating its social media campaign for the upcoming 2019 Oshkosh AirVenture Fly-In. This is just the latest step in a series of massive upgrades we're making as Aero-News becomes the 'Aero-Verse.' This program will concentrate on the three most persuasive forms of social media outreach -- short succinct messaging, compelling high-resolution still photography, and carefully formatted HD video. Our staff of journalists will be beating up Wittman Field all week long looking for suitable subjects for this effort, and you’re welcome to help us make sure that YOU don't get left out. You are welcome to text suggestions to 863-860-5790, or email news@aero-news.net with your suggestions. You can also Skype us directly at AERONEWSNET.

Gone West: ANN Mascot Anjin G Shepherd

Dear Lord... Please Help Me To Be The Person My Dog Thinks I Am

We've had a rough many weeks recently... lots to do, some medical issues that would not go away... until recently (and thankfully without long-term ill effect) -- and LOTS of work to do to keep up with ANN as well as our new AeroPReneuer company and a few new additions to the Airborne line-up. Worse... we're working a few really tough stories that, if they turn out to be what we fear, could have a decidedly negative impact on the aviation biz... and as much as we hate to do them; do them we must because we've always promised you our best and most honest efforts. It's not easy work... but there are things, here at home, that have made it all immeasurably more accomplishable. I have a great family, a wife who supports me unreservedly and with more love than I knew existed, and my work with the Bob Hoover Legacy Foundation has turned out to be truly inspirational and a source of great pride and satisfaction. Bob always represented the very best in aviation and my work on his b
