Airborne 05.11.22: Bye-Bye DeLand, FedEx SkyCourier, DJI Mini Pro 3

Also: ACR Takes On Blue Sky Network, New ACE Director, Ingenuity Phones Home, Virgin Orbit

ANN has learned that the 2022 DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase is NOT going to happen, according to Airport Manager John Eiff, who noted that, "hopefully, we can do  something next year..." in response to questions about the event's future as we learned that Event Boss Jana Filip had left her position with the city.

Filip was well-known to be the backbone of the event, after creating it to pick up where she left off after departing a similar event in Sebring, FL, which went AWOL thereafter. Filip had kept the DSAS event alive despite two years of pandemic related issues as well as lackluster support from the city government... Textron Aviation celebrated the delivery of its first Cessna SkyCourier to Federal Express (FedEx). The SkyCourier is a high-wing twin-engine utility turbo-prop aircraft, and is expected to be the first of 50 such aircraft for which FedEx will take delivery. DJI recently launched its DJI Mini 3 Pro, a palm-able device weighing a tad over 0.5 lbs, featuring tri-directional obstacle sensing, true vertical shooting, focus track, and 4K HDR video. It folds out from its collapsible compact form like its larger siblings, with the exception being that this one can probably fit in your pocket! DJI promises extended flight time of just over 30 minutes, however, with the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus, you may expect a bit above 45 minutes. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
