Airborne 05.22.19: RedBull Surprise, NASA Lunar Lander, TBM 940

Also: Pilatus PC-24, GAMA 1Q/19 Sales Report, Sikorsky HH-60W, Honda Expands

Aerobatic pilot and former US Serviceman Aaron Fitzgerald chose the open space of the Hudson River in New York to stun onlookers with a wide range of precision helicopter maneuvers. According to Red Bull, Fitzgerald performed the loops, barrel rolls and dives in front of the Statue of Liberty, Battery Park and alongside the West Side Highway. The pilot chose the unique practice course in preparation for the Memorial Day Weekend’s Bethpage Air Show. The Red Bull helicopter is able to perform the maneuvers through the use of a unique rigid titanium rotor. It allows Fitzgerald to reverse the airflow through the rotor without damage, ensuring he can safely execute the maneuvers. NASA has selected 11 companies to conduct studies and produce prototypes of human landers for its Artemis lunar exploration program. This effor

Airborne-Unmanned 05.21.19: Rec Drone Changes, Lilium Electric, Int'l Drone Conf

Also: Langley Aerodrome, $9.3 Million For ResponDrone, DJI Drones Comply, Restrictions Near Navy Vessels

The FAA is implementing changes for recreational drone flyers. While recreational flyers may continue to fly below 400 feet in uncontrolled airspace without specific certification or operating authority from the FAA, they are now required to obtain prior authorization from the FAA before flying in controlled airspace around airports. The new requirement to obtain an airspace authorization prior to flying a drone in controlled airspace replaces the old requirement to notify the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower prior to flying within five miles of an airport. Lilium has taken the wraps off its new five-seater air taxi prototype. The Lilium Jet completed its maiden unmanned flight in Germany earlier this month. The full-scale, full-weight prototype is powered by 36 all-el

AMA Drone Report 05.23.19: DAC Appointments Questioned, TFR Violated, AlphaPilot

Also: Changes Coming For ANN/Airborne Drone Coverage, FAA Restrictions, DHS Alert, FAA UAS Symposium

SecTrans Elaine Chao has formally announced new appointments to the FAA Drone Advisory Committee (DAC). The DAC is said to be a broad-based, long-term federal advisory committee that provides the FAA advice on key unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) integration issues by helping to identify challenges and prioritize improvements. The committee helps to create broad support for an overall integration strategy and vision. The list is devoid of working drone pilots or real-world drone service providers... leaving many in the drone community feeling as if their interests are unwelcome and unrepresented. A drone pilot has been charged with violating TFRs over two NFL stadiums in California on November 26, 2017. According to an affidavit attached to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in San Jose, CA, 5
