The City of Santa Monica may now proceed with shortening the runway at Santa Monica Airport (KSMO) after a temporary restraining order halting the work was lifted by U.S. District Judge Ronald Lew, who had put it in place.

The city will renew work on the runway-shortening project, which it expects to commence within the next week..."

Also: Swedish Drone Ban Lifted, Rocky Mountain Hobby-Expo, Drone Shark Detection, Kittyhawk DJI Sync 2.0

On 12 October 2017, a Skyjet Beech King Air A100 (a turbo prop... NOT a jet) was on an IFR flight to the Jean Lesage International Airport in Québec City, Quebec with 8 souls on board. The aircraft was approaching runway 24 and had just passed the final approach fix when the crew claims to have seen a drone at the extremity of the left wing. A drone operator from Arkansas named Michael Reichert has filed a class-action lawsuit against the FAA because he has not yet received a refund for hi

Also: AeroVironment Award, Washington State Patrol, Altavian Nova UAS, Robotaxis

The French Military is training four Golden Eagles to attack drones in flight as a way to defend against potential spying or attacks from the unmanned aircraft.

The Dutch National Police recently released a video showing an eagle taking down a DJI drone. That bird was trained by a company that is specializing in teaching birds of prey to attack unmanned aircraft. DJI has unveiled AeroScope, a new solution to identify and monitor airborne drones with existing technology that can address safety, security and privacy concerns. AeroScope uses the existing communications link between a drone and its remote controller to broadcast identification information such as a registration or seri
