Airborne 07.20.17: ForeFlight Scout, Airbus SAGITTA UAV, Privatization Fight

Also: NASA P2006T, Robert Sumwalt, First FL Legacy 500, Tuskegee Airmen, New RAF Trainer, VFA-115

ForeFlight has announced the availability of Scout, a portable, dual-band ADS-B receiver that delivers inflight weather and traffic information to the ForeFlight Mobile app in a small form-factor, retailing at $199 USD. “We are excited to bring Scout to market in collaboration with uAvionix,” said Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight co-founder and CEO. "We want every pilot flying with the benefits of ADS-B In. The combination of an ADS-B In solution with ForeFlight makes flying safer and we believe has led to a meaningful reduction in weather related incidents and accidents." Airbus Defence and Space has successfully tested a new type of aircraft that will aid the development of future UAVs for series production. The unmanned jet-propelled demonstrator with the project name SAGITTA flew completely aut

AMA Drone Report 07.20.17: FAST Drones, GeoFencing, Certified Drone Photographer

Also: SureFly Helicopter Concept, 'Design a Drone', Raleigh v Drones, Aero-TV: AMA's David Mathewson

The Drone Racing League recently tested the fastest racing drone, and set the Guinness World Records title for the Fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter. Hand-built by DRL's Director of Product, Ryan Gury, and DRL's team of expert drone engineers, the drones fly at unprecedented high speeds. The fastest racing drone, the DRL RacerX, demonstrated a reported top speed of 179.6 miles per hour... and weighs only 800 grams. Hackers are making it easy for DJI drone operators to get around the geofencing function included in the firmware of DJI drones, and the company is taking steps to thwart the practice. Such firmware patches are being made available at various locations on the Internet. The dronemaker is reportedly "very concerned" about legal action, and does not want

Aero-News At AirVenture Update: ANN Started Early

It May Several Days Yet Until EAA AirVenture Officially Opens Its Gates, But ANN Has Been In Place All Week!

At ANN we have something we call our Aero-Community, and it’s filled with incredible people and organizations that populate our Airborne Partnership Initiative. This initiative plays an important role in the creation of the video programming seen daily on our Airborne Unlimited webcast. We work with our Aero-Community to build a strong relationship with all facets of aviation and aerospace. All of this comes together in its most profound way every year at EAA AirVenture and, at AirVenture 2017, our joining of common interests has already started. The vanguard of the ANN crew is now on property at Oshkosh setting up our press headquarters and all the production equipment necessary to bring you the most complete coverage of AirVenture that’s available.

Airborne 07.19.17: NEW Kitfox Speedster!!!, Rotax 4 Sonex, Trig TY96A/TY97A

Also: Flt 3407 Families, Zenith STOL, Brandon Expands, BAA Training, Delta Caves In, Sully Defends GA, Global 7000

Years ago, ANN Boss Jim Campbell remarked a that recent flight test of the (then) Series IV Speedster model of the venerable Kitfox was one of the best flights he’d made all year... and he’s often remarked that he missed that sporty little aircraft after it went out of production. That SportPlane’s heyday was in 1992, when Kitfox arrived at AirVenture with the new and instantaneously popular design, the Kitfox Speedster. Further excitement was added to the introduction of this little plane when it was flown almost daily by the late Jimmy Franklin in a low altitude acro routine that could simply not be ignored. That was a generation ago... But now, Kitfox has given the 21st Century an answer to flying boredom, and sure enough, it also bears the name &l

Airborne 07.18.17: CBO--Costly H.R. 2997, Moon Express, Wipaire Aids ADS-B

Also: No $ For Mars?, Aero-Calendar, American A/L's Demotions, Bristell, Redbird VTO, New T-Birds!, Argentinian Air Force

The nation's Congressional Budget Office says that H.R. 2997 would be costly -- as noted in their official summary published late this week. The document notes that, “H.R. 2997 would establish a federally chartered, not-for-profit corporation (known as the American Air Navigation Services (AANS) Corporation) to assume responsibility for operating the U.S. air traffic control system, a function currently performed by the FAA. The proposed corporation would be governed by a 13-member board of directors composed of individuals representing certain aviation stakeholder groups. To finance the costs of providing air traffic services, the bill would authorize the corporation to charge fees to users of such services and to issue debt. This is SERIOUS Unmanned Vehicle technology! M

Airborne-Unmanned 07.18.17: Moon Express, DJI Drone Hacks, Airdog Sports-Drone

Also: Ride Sharing, Indago UAS, S Korean Tiltrotor UAV, Drone Simulators, Airborne-Unmanned

This is SERIOUS Unmanned Vehicle technology! Moon Express, one of the competitors in the Google Lunar X Prize program, has unveiled plans to build a new family of spacecraft. The company's agreement with Rocket Labs, which is developing the Electron booster that will propel the Moon Express lander to the Moon in hopes of claiming the $20 million GLXP award, covers up to five launches. Following the initial mission, Moon Express has scheduled a launch in 2019 that would establish a robotic research base near the lunar south pole. In 2020, Moon Express hopes to mount the first commercial mission to return a lunar sample to Earth. Hackers are making it easy for DJI drone operators to get around the geofencing function included in the firmware of DJI drones, and the company is taking steps to th

Airborne 07.17.17: Pelton v HR 2997, Sully's GA Support, CAF Adds Bell 47

Also: DJI Drones, A350 XWB For Delta, CAF Superfortress, CAP’s ‘Very Best’, Mesa Airlines, Aussie F/A-18E/F, AIA

You've all heard it... various bits of hot-air from a number of elected officials trying to infer that the effort to bring about ATC Privatization has plenty of support among the entire aviation community... which plainly isn't true. EAA Boss Jack Pelton, as tired of the misinformation as the rest of us, just took aim at the GA Caucus to let them know that this simply isn't acceptable... or true. The following is a missive that Jack sent out just a few days ago... "I feel really compelled to make sure the record is set straight on where General Aviation stands on H.R. 2997. That is why I am reaching out to all of you... Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger is not a fan of ATC privatization. And even if it does not pass this year, he says he's concerned ab
