Airborne 06.22.17: GA v House ATC Bill, 737 MAX 10, Solar Impulse 2 Anniversary

Also: ATC Opposition, Want to Be An Aero-Stringer?, CAP's Next CEO, Hypersonic Jet, Spring Airlines, Leonardo, 505 Jet Ranger X

Following Wednesday’s release of the language proposed by the US House of Representatives, a consortium of general aviation groups has provided united opposition to the legislation introduced by Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pennsylvania). The latest documentation includes provisions, again, to turn the nation's air traffic control infrastructure and services to a privatized, non-profit board dominated by commercial aviation interests. The joint statement came from EAA, AOPA, NBAA, NATA, GAMA, and HAI. Boeing has announced the launch of the 737 MAX 10 as the newest member of the 737 MAX family at the 2017 Paris Air Show. The planemaker says the 737 MAX 10 will have the lowest seat-mile cost of any single-aisle airplane ever produced. The airplane gained more than 240 orders

AMA Drone Report 06.22.17: FAA Reauthorization, Rotor Riot Int'l, DRL on ESPN

Also: Drones at Oshkosh!, Drone Regulatory Effort, AMA Drone Report-Help Wanted, Aero-TV: MultiGP Drone Racing

The House of Representatives has published initial language to reauthorize funding for the FAA. A move to privatize the ATC system is causing widespread concern among aviation groups and pilots nationwide. Our friend, Jonathan Rupprecht has furnished a few observations of interest to the drone community. The new language ‘upholds the protections of Section 336 regarding model aircraft flyers but DOES allow the FAA to create a registration system for model aircraft.’ The two largest names in the FPV culture are joining forces! MultiGP and Rotor Riot are combining forces to make sure the 2017 International Open is an event that gets chiseled in FPV history. MultiGP says this inaugural Rotor Riot themed version of the MultiGP International Open is your best opportunity to catch a

Airborne 06.21.17: A380plus??, Lycoming TBO Upgrade, Drone Racing League Premier

Also: WomenVenture, EAA Pilot Proficiency Ctr, 787-9 Order, Cardiac Drones, Cessna Ldg Gears, A320neo, Nightwarden TUAS

Airbus is presenting a development study for an enhanced A380, the “A380plus”. The study includes aerodynamic improvements in particular new, large winglets and other wing refinements that allow for up to 4% fuel savings. Added to an optimized A380 maintenance program and enhanced cabin features, the overall benefit is a 13% cost per seat reduction versus today’s A380. The new winglets measure approximately 15 feet in height (an uplet of 11 feet, and a downlet of 4 feet). It is designed to improve aerodynamics and reduce drag. The FAA has granted Lycoming Engines a 200 hour extension to the TBO on certain engine models. Lycoming requested a global Alternate Method of Compliance to AD 2010-19-01 from the FAA to allow operators to use the time periods specified in

Airborne 06.20.17: MAKO Near 1st Flt, Proteus 1000th, Pegasus Flying Car

Also: SR-72 Details, Aero-Calendar, Spitfire Flips, Tecnam Twins, Space Tourism, Iridium NEXT, Falcon Aviation

The first new product since the relocation of experimental aircraft pioneer Lancair International to Texas is the 4-place MAKO. The new aircraft is scheduled to make its first appearance at this summer's EAA AirVenture event July 24-30. Focused on setting a new price/performance benchmark, the new design features dual gullwing cabin doors, a first for a Lancair model. Newly designed low-drag "scimitar" wingtips incorporate lightweight LED lighting and, along with other aerodynamic refinements including an optional retractable nosewheel, are expected to add some 8 to 10 knots to the aircraft's cruise speed. The Scaled Model 281 "Proteus" recently completed its 1,000th flight. Piloted by test pilot Clint Nichols, with project engineer Sam Henney in the right seat, the aircraft took off at s

Airborne-Unmanned 06.20.17: UAS Orgs v Bad Regs, Anti-Collision, Drone Race $$

Also: Solar-Powered UAS, NK Drone, UAS Survey, Brian Wynne Interview

The team at AUVSI is staying plenty busy as they and 13 other organizations authored a letter to members of Congress urging them to consider the potential consequences for the UAS industry if legislation was enacted affecting the federal sovereignty of the airspace. One of the technologies on display at the Paris Airshow this week seeks to deal with anti-collision programs to separate UAVs form manned vehicles. To integrate UAVs into the national airspace, the National Research Council of Canada has developed the Passive Intelligent Collision Avoidance Sensor (PICAS) system, allowing UAS to detect oncoming aircraft more accurately than ever before. PICAS allows UAS to detect aircraft that are not able to communicate their position to other aircraft. And... the big money deals just keep rolling in... The Drone Racing League has ju

Airborne 06.19.17: Drone Reg Effort, K-MAX Extended, Blimp Fire

Also: ALPA Pilots, Rod Machado, New KCI?, NATA BoD, ATR, Boeing Mid-Size?, Advanced Hawk Demonstrator

In the light of recent issues surrounding the status/legality of various regulatory models overseeing the Unmanned Vehicle industry, it was only a matter of time before new regulatory models were put forth by industry players. ADS Infrastructure Partners has announced that it will lead a national campaign to help fund and establish a Drone/Unmanned Aircraft Systems Regulatory Association as a first step to unlock the full economic value of the sector. On June 6th, ADS hosted a roundtable meeting in Washington, D.C. that engaged thought leaders and stakeholders from aerospace and aviation, academia, government, and related industry organizations. The group shared ideas, explored and challenged assumptions, policy positions, and current practices. Kaman Corporation has announced that it has extended
