The expression, “breaking news,” seems to be highly overused nowadays, but to hear that an autogyro has just received FAA type certification is truly - breaking news.

They decided to go with an aircraft that has a service ceiling of 41,000 feet and will cruise at 415 KTAS. Amid claims of the misuse of a federal authority, the FAA has placed a temporary flight restriction over the area where protesters are attempting to stop the Standing Rock oil pipeline in North Dakota.
