A resolution has been considered by the Santa Monica City Council would make it a policy of the city to close the airport to aviation uses "as soon as legally permitted", with a goal of ending aviation operations there by 2018.

Now the task of scrambling for a charged battery has been eliminated as Lightspeed Aviation has made an enhancement to the LEMO version of its Tango headset. The new feature enables the panel interface unit of the headset to charge a spare battery from ship's power, providing a ready replacement should the battery in the headset itself b
