Airborne 05.26.16: Icon Flaming Out, Airbus Heli-Patent, UAV Registry

Also: TSA Dust-Up, Honor Flight, The API -- What’s This ALL About?, EASA Cert's G650ER, First E190-E2, DiCaprio BizJet, WingX Pro7, BASE Jump Tragedy

Late Wednesday, Icon finally let a few bits of news slip out... and though tightly controlled and hyped to the max, the news is a shocking disappointment that may signal the downfall of the little amphib company that couldn't brag enough... Airbus has filed a patent on an advanced version of its Eurocopter X3, which set an unofficial speed record of 263 knots in 2013. In order for a patent to stand, the filing must be detailed and specific as it relates to the concepts of the item to be patented. On Monday of this week we reported that the FAA would be releasing information regarding registered drone owners limited to city, state, and ZIP Code, but with no name or address information. Now, according to analyst, John Goglia, the

Airborne 05.25.16: Canada SeaPlane Regs, Blimp Downed, Citation Longitude Mated

Also: USAF Hassled, Hummel UltraCruiser, Helo Limits, FAA Video, Greg Connell Accident, Medical Helo Suit, Bombardier's 100th VistaJet

Canada is proposing changes to their seaplane regulations. The proposed regulations respond to the Transportation Safety Board of Canada’s recommendations following the 2009 seaplane accident in Lyall Harbour, British Columbia and the 2012 accident in Lillabelle Lake, Ontario. The changes appear to be addressing the fact that, when on the water, a seaplane is effectively a boat and that passengers should be protected in the case of an occurrence that places them in the water. This issue is particularly important in Canada because of the extensive use of seaplane travel in their more remote areas. An advertising blimp made an off-airport emergency landing last Friday, with initial reports indicating the problem had something to do with engine o

Also: B-29 Doc Airworthy, Aero-Calendar, Charles Taylor, Boeing-Vietjet, Flexjet Buy, Indian Mini-Shuttle, 777X Composite Wing Center

Textron Aviation has finally revealed further program details around the development of its Cessna single engine turboprop aircraft. They say it will be designed to have cruise speeds of up to 285 knots and full fuel payload of 1,100 pounds. The planned range is 1,600 nautical miles at high speed cruise with one pilot and four passengers on board. Textron claims the aircraft will incorporate technology specifically designed to reduce pilot workload. The G3000 avionics suite planned for the aircraft includes weather radar, advanced Terrain Awareness Warning Systems and ADS-B capabilities. The Turbine Venom will be marketed as a kit built airplane. It is the next-generation version of the Turbine Legend, which began production in 1998. Produced entirel

Airborne 05.23.16: Si2 Lands in Dayton, BellHeli Relocation, Santa Monica Update

Also: Rockwell Collins, RC Antonov AN-225, Safety Culture In Alaska, Sonic 'Thump', Drone Reg. Data, Aiming For Mars, Hawaiian Pilots

The Solar Impulse-2 crew alerted ANN, early Saturday morning, that it’s next step in their trek around the world was about to depart Tulsa, Oklahoma, and head for Dayton, Ohio. They departed Tulsa at 4:22am local time and, after a successful flight, landed at Dayton International Airport 16 ½ hours later. Si2 spent a week at the Tulsa International Airport until a clear weather window allowed them to continue their flights across the United States. The selection of Dayton, which was the home of Orville and Wilbur Wright, seems most apropos. Bell Helicopter has announced plans to relocate several programs in order to optimize manufacturing capabilities across multiple Bell Helicopter facilities. The Bell 505 Jet Ranger X final assembly in
