USA Today has once again printed a story by Thomas Frank regarding the dangers of general aviation. This time he focused on post-crash fires, and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association has responded.

An ATR72 on approach to Southend Airport near London came within 80 feet of colliding with a UAV, according to a report from the U.K.'s Airprox Board.

Only 2 years ago, Felix Baumgartner set a record for the highest parachute jump when he stepped out of his Red Bull sponsored gondola hanging beneath a gas filled balloon at 128,100 feet. This record was broken last week when a computer scientist named Alan Eustace parachuted from an altitude of 135,890 feet. During his descent, it’s reported that Eustace reached a speed of 822 miles per hour. The NBAA’s 2014 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition organizers are reporting that, by all indications, the show was a success for attendees and exhibitors alike.
