Also: Gone West-Alexei Leonov, STOL ATR 42-600S, AEA Connect Conference, Boeing BoD Turmoil

Sikorski has just introduced RAIDER X. They call this bird an “agile, lethal and survivable compound coaxial helicopter.” The Raider X program offers provides increased performance including; highly responsive maneuverability, enhanced low-speed hover, off-axis hover, and level acceleration and braking. While state-of-the-art digital design and manufacturing is already in use on other Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky production programs such as CH-53K, CH-148 and F-35; this program will reportedly enable the Army to not only lower the acquisition cost, but enable rapid, affordable upgrades to stay ahead of the evolving threat.

AMA Drone Report 10.17.19: Senator v FAA, Droners Released By Iran, Mavic Mini?

Also: NBAA Webcast Schedule, Ford Drone, NATS Drone Course, Drone Saves Boy, Store Stops UAV Sales

Unfortunately; quite a few lawmakers seem to think they know more about how to regulate aviation than the FAA... and based on several recent actions, it appears that they may be in serious error. The errant legislation would institute controls above and beyond, or in defiance of, those imposed by the FAA. The aerial know-it-all, this time, is a Republican Senator from Utah by the name of Mike Lee. The Senator is introducing a bill that would allow states, cities, and even Native American tribes, to take control over a significant part of US airspace while instituting new rules for drones. Most worrisome is the possibility that this would result in hundreds, if not thousands, of new rules, enacted by legal bodies that may have little or no aviation expertise and create a whole new level of chaos.
