Claiming to offer, “... a cloud-based platform to manage, process, view, analyze and collaborate around data for insurance, property management, mining, quarrying, and construction,” Airware has elected to shut down operations after spending some 118 million in investment capital. Airware was founded in 2011 in Newport Beach, California, by Jonathan Downey and relocated to San Francisco in January 2014, and purchased Redbird, a drone analytics software company, in 2016.

Also: ALPA Unveils Pilot Plan, Colorado Springs Airport Repair, Girls In Aviation Day, FAA Grant

While the announcement of our Master List of over a dozen recommended SportPlanes is still a few weeks off, one new aircraft has easily risen to the top of the list reserved for NEW offerings in the VERY competitive sport aviation landscape. This year; the best new SportPlane is The Airplane Factory’s Rotax 915-powered Sling TSi. ANN’s Jim Campbell got a personal tour of iFly’s soon-to-be-latest indoor skydiving facility now under construction off Interstate 295, in Jacksonville, Florida.
