Airborne 11.12.18: Hawkins OUT of Icon, Hoversurf = Ultralight, $$$ USAF Mugs

Also: SimCom TBM910 FTD, JAL Pilot Arrested, New Contract For 15 E175s, Aero-TV: DeltaHawk Diesel

The other shoe has dropped... Kirk Hawkins, the driving force behind the Icon Aircraft program and a massive litany of mis-steps, is no longer the CEO of the foundering aircraft concern. Icon is wrapping up the matter with as much positive spin as they can, though the company admits that Hawkins has resigned as CEO, and will reportedly stay on in "an undefined role" while President and COO Thomas Wiener will lead the company in the interim. Hawkins has been leading the company since its inception, and guided it through a series of blunders and broken promises that gave way to several minor and major accidents that tarred the image of an aircraft once touted for its safety features. The FAA has made a determination that the Hoversurf Hoverbike S3 meets the applicability requirements of § 103.1(a),

Airborne 11.09.18: Global 7500 Cert, 737 MAX Emergency AD, V1 'Flying Bomb'

Also: Trig European Office, Sonoma Jet Center, Sikorsky Award, Airbus A330-800 Flies

The FAA has certified the Bombardier Global 7500. It will enter  into-service later this year. Earlier this year, the aircraft demonstrated the expansion of its advertised maximum range to 7,700 nautical miles- - 300 nautical miles further than they had initially projected. It has exceeded takeoff and landing performance, making challenging airports such as Chicago Executive, and Eagle County, Colorado, easier to maneuver in adverse weather conditions. The FAA, after a recent Lion Air crash that took the loves of all on board, has issued an emergency AD for Boeing 787 MAX-8 and MAX-9 airplanes following analysis performed by Boeing showing that if an erroneously high single angle of attack (AOA) sensor input is received by the flight control system, there is a potential for repeated nose-down trim commands of

Expert Help Wanted: Could YOU Be The Next Face Of 'Airborne?'

Aviation's Longest Running Video News Program Is Seeking New Talent For Airborne Expansion

ANN is on the hunt for next new face of our Airborne news program series... in order to allow our current host the chance to do some important international volunteer work. Further; we also need to add new and talented persons to the roster so that we may accomplish the expanding mission of Airborne and a number of new Airborne additions coming up in the next few months. We have a need for one new staffer ASAP and another around the first of the year. These are autonomous 'one man/woman band' positions where you must be as comfortable behind the camera as in front of it. You will be responsible for presenting tech related news stories on camera while often handling all audio, video and lighting, as well as editing the final product.

Airborne 11.07.18: Tesla Passes Mars!, Airport Renaming?, ATP-Type Rating Regs

Also: Hartzell Appoints Wuhan Hangda Aero, First AFR ISR Wing, GlobalBeacon, USAF 823rd RHS Delivers

The Tesla Roadster that was sent into orbit with a mannequin dubbed "Starman" in the driver's seat has passed the orbit of Mars, and will soon reach the apogee of its orbit before starting back towards the sun. Starman and his roadster will reach their furthest point from the sun ... about 155 million miles ... on November 8th. And while the vehicle will start back towards the center of the solar system at that point, it will still be 2020 it makes a "close approach" to Earth, and it will still be 32 million miles away. The car will still be closer to Mars at that point ... about 4.6 million miles. In fact, Ben Pearson, an astronomer who is tracking Starman's orbit, predicts that there will not be a truly close visit to the home planted until about 2091. There is a movement in Oakland, CA to rename

AMA Drone Report 11.08.18: FAI Championships, Drone Controller, Vaccines By Air

Also: Mavic 2 Pro Eval Starts, DJI Expands, FlightSafety Test Prep, What’s A ‘Hover 2?’

Imagine being a 15-year-old drone racer from Australia... and now imagine that you’re in China to win a $24K check. The new World Drone Racing Champion was announced after four days of competition at an event organized by the FAI’s World Air Sports Federation, running from 1-4 November 2018. Finishing at the top in a field of 127 drone racers from 34 countries, Rudi Browning, walked away from the experience clutching a $24,000 cash prize. Drone pilots, from commercial experts to novices, may now increase their flight precision and improve their image/video quality with a first-of-its-kind single-handed controller from Fluidity Technologies. The FT Aviator drone controller was designed by former NASA astronaut Scott Parazynski. Unlike traditional controllers, which most closely rese
