Airborne 09.17.18: Round The World Spitfire, Reno MidAir, Loon Program

Also: NATA Leadership, Navy Presents DFC, Wright Brothers Memorial, Orion Parachute Tests

We rarely get jealous of our fellow aviators but a recent announcement has definitely inspired us to be  green with envy. Seriously... just say the name, SPITFIRE, and you have nearly any pilot’s immediate attention as they consider the iconic airplane that so many have admired and so few have actually flown. And as exciting as the aircraft and its warrior history may be, there is one thing that this infamous aircraft has never done... fly around the world. BUT... two adventurous aviators seem intent on changing all that. The two British flyers, Matt Jones and Steve Brooks, intend to leave Southern England on a trans-global journey by next fall in a brightly polished silver Spitfire Mark IX, returning the following Christmas after an adventure that should require some 150 stops in over 30 countries

AMA Drone Report 09.13.18: Drone Shootings, Hurricane Warning, Drone Recurrency

Recently, a DJI Inspire 2 was shot down. AMA has posted an alert concerning this week’s issues with Hurricane Florence. Florence is due to make landfall on the coasts of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia Friday. AMA Notes that, “The storm is projected to bring record-breaking rain and wind to the area and has prompted mandatory eva

In letters to committees in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, AUVSI has urged lawmakers working on a reauthorization bill for the FAA to include legislative proposals that would give the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice authority to mitigate unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) that are used for nefarious purposes, while maintaining the FAA’s exclusive sovereignty over the airspace.
