Airborne 09.19.18: SpaceX Moonshot, 747 'Art Car', Nat'l Aerobatic Championships

Also: FAA Reauthorization Stalled, First 777X, Unlicensed Pilot Arrested, Soundproofing PC-12

A Japanese entrepreneur and billionaire is the first passenger named for SpaceX's trip around the moon, which the company plans for 2023. Yusaku Maezawa has been named as the first private passenger to fly around the moon. No human has been that close to the moon since 1972. Maezawa, whose net worth has been estimated at $2.9 billion, appeared on stage with SpaceX founder Elon Musk for an event held at the company's headquarters. "Finally I can tell you that I choose to go to the moon," he said. The Bureau of Land Management wants the owners of an "art car" from Burning Man that is made from the front half of a Boeing 747 fuselage removed from government land.

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.

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
