Airborne 08.16.19: Icon Crash Prelim, WingX Upgrade, SpaceX Starhopper

Also: AAIB Blames Carbon Monoxide, Praetor 500 Cert, SNC Selects ULA, Dickson on B737Max

Another Icon A5 accident has been reviewed by the NTSB.... Leading to questions about the airplane and the way this aircraft is being operated by the folks who supposedly know it. According to the Prelim, “The pilot rated passenger, who was seated in the left seat at the time of the accident, stated that 'the weather was not the best' and that the wind was shifting 180°. He said he told the pilot-in-command (PIC) this sentiment, and that it took four takeoff attempts to get airborne. After the second attempt, he said he told the PIC that it would not break his heart if they did not go. He said that the airplane felt very sluggish and acted as if it did not want to come off the water... The folks at WingX have alerted us to a possible issue for users of iOS devices...

Airborne-Unmanned 08.13.19: 'HAWK30' Authorized, UKCG Trial, Public Safety Drone

Also: SimActive, Atlas Multi-Drone System, UAS Public Safety Workshop, San Pablo Police Drone Unit

HAPSMobile has received a Certificate of Authorization from the FAA to fly “HAWK30,” a solar-powered unmanned aircraft, assembled in April 2019, to provide a stratospheric telecommunications platform system, in the stratosphere above the Hawaiian island of Lanai. As part of collaborative activities with the PPUTRC (Pan-Pacific UAS Test Range Complex), which is run by public university research institutions, HAPSMobile has been working with the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the University of Hawaii to conduct stratospheric test flights. The University of Alaska Fairbanks applied to the FAA on behalf of the three parties, and received authorization.

AMA Drone Report 08.15.19: Amazon Petition, Mavic-Mini?, Eek! Drone Flamethrower

Also: Drone Shooter, DJI Pocket, DroneResponders, Passenger Drone Test

Amazon has petitioned the FAA for a waiver from several current rules governing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to allow the company to begin delivery services with its MK27 drone. Waivers requested by Amazon would, among other things, allow the aircraft to operate without a certificate of airworthiness and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). They further request that the aircraft be exempted from rules governing altitude, VFR fuel requirements and maintenance documentation. The rumor mill is ripe with the possibility that DJI may soon be unveiling a ‘Mini-Me’ version of the popular Mavic. While many hoped to hear the announcement in the same session that revealed the latest variation of the DJI Osmo 3 (which we want... bad), DJI remains mum for the moment. Video has surfaced though, as well as a spec sheet, and the detai

All of this is achieved without making permanent modifications to the aircraft.” Source: Dr. Alok Das, Senior Scientist with AFRL’s Center for Rapid Innovation, commenting on the Air Force Research Laboratory and DZYNE Technologies having successfully completed a two-hour initial flight of a revolutionary Robotic Pilot Unmanned Conversion Program called ROBOpilot Aug. 9 at Dugway Proving Ground in Utah.
