Airborne 12.18.17: Drone v Blackhawk, KSMO Runway Closure, DoT Breaks Rules

Also: New TBird Boss, Darwin Airlines, Swift Air May Cancel MRJ90, Airbus Succession Plan

The NTSB has released an aviation incident final report from a collision between a U.S. Army UH-60M helicopter and a Phantom 4 drone. The report notes that the helo was operating VFR within Class G airspace about 300 ft above mean sea level (msl) when it collided with a DJI Phantom 4 sUAS. The helicopter sustained minor damage and landed uneventfully; the sUAS was destroyed. Although the pilot flying the helicopter saw the sUAS before impact and immediately applied flight control inputs, there was insufficient time to avoid the collision. The sheer idiocy surrounding the santa Monica Airport debacle continues. The Santa Monica Airport (KSMO) runway has been closed for the project to shorten the single landing strip from 4,973 feet to 3,500 feet under a questionable agreement reached between the FAA and the ci

Also: LAFD Drones, Toys For Tots FPV, Modular Racing Drone, Community College Drone Program

President Donald Trump has signed the Defense Authorization Bill that includes a reinstatement of the FAA's drone registry that was invalidated by a federal judge in May. The language was included in the $700 billion National Defense Authorization Act. The FAA released a statement, supportive of the language in the bill. "We welcome the reinstatement of registration rules for all small unmanned aircraft," the FAA said. "Ownership identification helps promote safe and responsible drone operation and is a key component to full integration." With registration coming back, AMA has summarized a few issues of immediate concern and the questions that are being raised... Q: If I already registered, do I have register again? A: You will not have to register again since this bill simply reverses the John Taylor case.
