ANN Is Hiring! Videographers Needed For Airborne Unlimited Program Staff

Videographer/Reporters Needed For Airborne Unlimited Program Expansion

Aero-News and Airborne are expanding--and innovating! And we're seeking additional on-air video journalist(s) to assist us with our Feature and Scheduled programming. These are autonomous `one man/woman band` positions where you must be as comfortable behind the camera as in front of it. You will be responsible for presenting aviation/aerospace related news stories on camera while often handling all audio, video and lighting as well as editing the final product. The ideal candidate will be an experienced videographer and editor, with prior on-air experience. Being knowledgeable of the Aviation Industry is highly recommended (and will need to be learned, regardless).

Airborne 02.25.15: Orion Data, ALPA OPines On UAS, Blakey's New Gig

Also: Rutan Celebration, Orbis Flying Eye Hospital, Prince Harry, 1300th PC-12, Malaysian Pipers, Chalet Suzanne Auction

NASA’s Orion spacecraft continues on the agency’s journey to Mars as engineers analyze data from the spacecraft’s December flight test and make progress developing and building the spacecraft for its first mission atop NASA Space Launch System heavy-lift rocket. By the end of the year, engineers hope to have the primary structure for Orion’s next mission to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida for processing. Meanwhile, every piece of data and each element of the spacecraft flown in the December test is being analyzed and compared to pre-flight models to improve Orion’s design. The head of the Air Line Pilots Association wrote in a recent editorial for USA Today that pilots see UAVs as a "potential danger" to the safety of airliners in the U.S. Capt
