Also: AirShow Racing Series, Women In Aviation Advisory Board, Rolls-Royce RR300, Delta Flies 120 Girls To NASA

A much upgraded version of the speedy SJ30i light bizjet has taken to the skies... just in time to be able to strut its stuff for the upcoming NBAA Convention next week in Las Vegas, NV. SyberJet Aircraft’s SJ30i successfully completed the first flight of its SJ30i aircraft featuring an all-new cockpit based around the Honeywell Epic 2.0 avionics suite. The flight was conducted out of its Engineering and Product Development Center at the San Antonio International Airport (KSAT) and kicked off an 18-month certification test program which will culminate in an amended type certificate for the SJ30 -- followed by immediate deliveries. The Tennessee Highway Patrol’s Criminal Investigations Division (CID) began assisting the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department in an unusual b

Airborne 10.11.19: FAA Targets Model Av, Collings Request, uAvionix Acquisition

Also: Future Of USB Power, Zero Aviation Fatalities?, Unlicensed Pilot, Electric Aircraft Market

In what may be a stunning mis-step that could critically impair a facet of the aviation world that many consider to be THE entry-level for the entire community, the FAA is readying extensive and inexplicable restrictions on the model aviation community. The Academy of Model Aeronautics is asking for assistance in what it describes as an urgent matter. The FAA recently unexpectedly informed the AMA that, contrary to earlier commitments to the organization, the agency is planning to limit all recreational model aircraft operations to 400 feet in controlled airspace and there will be no exceptions. Although a 400 feet limit may work for a large number of AMA members, they have a number of disciplines that will need to go higher than these proposed heights. The Collings Foundation has issued a statement co

AMA Drone Report 10.10.19: FAA Restricts Model Av, Drone Safety, DRL RacerAI

Also: No Drones at Balloon Fiesta, Drone Finds 'Miracle Dog', NASA And Uber, Aero-TV: Senator Inhofe

In one of the most questionable moves made by the FAA under the leadership of a new Administrator, the world of model aviation has been targeted for questionable new restrictions. AMA, after extremely aggressive efforts, is clearly shocked at the decision... as are we. The FAA unexpectedly informed AMA that, contrary to earlier commitments to the organization, the agency is planning to limit all recreational model aircraft operations to 400 feet in controlled airspace and there will be no exceptions. Although a 400 feet limit may work for a large number of AMA members, the sport has a number of disciplines that will need to go higher than these proposed heights. Additionally, the FAA is proposing restrictions in uncontrolled airspace to altitudes that could present safety issues as well as limit so
