Airborne 06.24.19: StratoLaunch 4 Sale?, Canada Needs Pilots, MidEast NOTAM

Also: NAC Acquiring ATRs, Kopter’s SH09 Third Proto, UK Red Arrows, Gone West-Jack Swope

The Stratolaunch aircraft, developed to launch small payloads into space from a conventional runway, is being offered for sale by Vulcan, the holding company founded by the late Paul Allen. Stratolaunch, which has flown once, is being offered for $400 million. The price includes the airplane, intellectual property, and associated facilities. Neither Stratolaunch or Vulcan would comment on the rumors of a proposed sale, saying that the company "remains operational. We will provide an update when there is news to share." But the company has been downsizing during the first half of this year, and much of the workforce has been laid off even with a valid contract to launch a small rocket for Northrop in 2020. In June 2019, programs were launched to ensure the continuing health of the Royal Canadian Air Force

Airborne 06.21.19: IFR SpaceX Launch, Daher Buys Quest, ATSB On C-210

Also: USAF Thunderbirds, Delta Good Deed, Commercial Aircraft Production, Embraer KC-390

Just about the time when you think you’ve finally seen it all with SpaceX, they do something that you haven’t EVER seen before... in more ways than one! Recently SpaceX scored another successful launch and landing of components of a Falcon 9 supporting the Candian Space Agency’s RADARSAT Constellation Mission. Falcon 9’s first stage for launch of RADARSAT Constellation Mission previously flew on Crew Dragon’s first demonstration mission in March 2019. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage returned to land on SpaceX’s nearby Landing Zone 4 (LZ-4) at Vandenberg Air Force Base. The vehicle started deploying several satellites approximately 54 minutes after launch. Daher is taking a major step in developing the company’s airplane manufacturing business with the acquisition of Quest Aircraft Company, which builds the Kodiak 100. The Kodiak 100 is a 10-

Airborne 06.19.19: Skydive Record, UAL Discrimination Suit, Textron Jobs

Also: ASKA Flying Car, SpaceX Sues U.S., Mitsubishi MU-2 SAIB, Aviation Safety Resources

An international team of 20 skydivers are claiming a new world record by completing four different formations on the same skydive while flying in an upright position on Sunday, May 26. The team traveled from around the globe for the record event at Skydive Spaceland—Houston in Rosharon, Texas. After leaping from an aircraft more than 16,000 feet above the ground, the group built the formations flying in a position that looks like sitting in a chair—“upright” in skydiving lingo. They had less than 60 seconds to complete the formations. United Airlines pilot Clarence Williams has filed a lawsuit against the carrier claiming racial discrimination, saying the carrier treated him unequally, retaliated against him, and demoted him because he is African-American. According to the lawsuit, Will

AMA Drone Report 06.20.19: FAA LoA, SAFEDrone, EU-Wide Rules

Also: ANN Oshkosh Coverage, Uber Eats Delivery By Drone, CA State Fair Drone Show

The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 requires all flying sites within controlled airspace to have a letter of agreement (LOA) with air traffic control (ATC) facilities. AMA is working directly with the FAA to prioritize this work and ensure that you have the protections you need to continue to fly. However, we need some additional information to accomplish this. Recently, emails have been sent to club officers to ensure correct completion of an FAA questionnaire to obtain the information needed for this LOA. Multiple submissions for the same flying site will delay the process of an LOA, so the email was sent only to club officers to coordinate this effort. SAFEDrone is a classroom protocol for training students to operate drones indoors, assuring proper training to mitigate risk. Students will apply classroom math, sc

ANNouncement: Now Accepting Applications For Oshkosh 2019 Stringers!!!

An Amazing Experience Awaits The Chosen Few...

E-I-C Note: There's very little we can say yet, but there is a reason why this may be a TRULY exciting year to throw in with ANN to cover the extraordinary event that is OSHKOSH. Like in years past, we have something up our sleeves -- actually SEVERAL big somethings -- BUT, this year, they could be some of the biggest upgrades/surprises we've pulled off yet -- so we're going to be changing quite a few things about how we cover Oshkosh, as a result. IF YOU want to be a part of this unique adventure, speak up NOW, rather than later, because we're going to looking for the best volunteer folks we can find and are planning to do so ASAP. You've been warned (grin)....
