Airborne 09.17.18: Round The World Spitfire, Reno MidAir, Loon Program

Also: NATA Leadership, Navy Presents DFC, Wright Brothers Memorial, Orion Parachute Tests

We rarely get jealous of our fellow aviators but a recent announcement has definitely inspired us to be  green with envy. Seriously... just say the name, SPITFIRE, and you have nearly any pilot’s immediate attention as they consider the iconic airplane that so many have admired and so few have actually flown. And as exciting as the aircraft and its warrior history may be, there is one thing that this infamous aircraft has never done... fly around the world. BUT... two adventurous aviators seem intent on changing all that. The two British flyers, Matt Jones and Steve Brooks, intend to leave Southern England on a trans-global journey by next fall in a brightly polished silver Spitfire Mark IX, returning the following Christmas after an adventure that should require some 150 stops in over 30 countries

AMA Drone Report 09.13.18: Drone Shootings, Hurricane Warning, Drone Recurrency

Also: FAI International Drones Conference, Nags Head Drone Ordinance, Yuneec International, Small Drone Turbine

One of the dirty little secrets about sport and commercial drone operations is that negative media hysteria, often drummed up by so-called journalists who can barely spell “UAV,” is creating hazards for drones, their operators and the public by inciting ‘Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt.’ Worse, there is great potential for even greater harm when expended ammo comes down... where it may hit a human being. Recently, a DJI Inspire 2 was shot down. AMA has posted an alert concerning this week’s issues with Hurricane Florence. Florence is due to make landfall on the coasts of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia Friday. AMA Notes that, “The storm is projected to bring record-breaking rain and wind to the area and has prompted mandatory eva

Airborne-Unmanned 09.18.18: Airware Grounded, AUVSI Urges Congress, LMC And DRL

Also: DroneInsurance.com And AirMap, EagleView And PrecisionHawk, Laser-Carrying Drones, Army Drones

Claiming to offer, “... a cloud-based platform to manage, process, view, analyze and collaborate around data for insurance, property management, mining, quarrying, and construction,” Airware has elected to shut down operations after spending some 118 million in investment capital. Airware was founded in 2011 in Newport Beach, California, by Jonathan Downey and relocated to San Francisco in January 2014, and purchased Redbird, a drone analytics software company, in 2016. Company staffers were offered little warning... having been notified the day of the shutdown. At its height, the company reportedly had over 140 employees. AUVSI has urged lawmakers working on a reauthorization bill for the FAA to include legislative proposals that would give the Departments of Homeland Security and Just
