Authorities had first been alerted to the activity on April 7, but were unable to locate the field in the sprawling forest using traditional methods after covering some 11 miles of the forest on foot.

Airborne 04.18.17: Bk160 Gabriél, Fuller v Airlines, Drone NIMBYs

Also: Co WWII Museum, Aero-Calendar, AIAA, B/E Aerospace, Shuttle Tile, Gripen Biofuel, Drone Bust

Italian aircraft manufacturer Blackshape introduced the new Bk160 – Gabriél at AERO Friedrichshafen. The company said that the Bk160 – Gabriél represents a major milestone in the small aircraft sector with a full glass-cockpit resembling modern military trainers. The airplanes aggressive attitude with sporty finishing are inspired by the hand-made tailor style with a touch of "Italianness" in its design. Former AOPA Boss, Craig Fuller, continues to make a lot of sense as he opines that we should be wary of what he says are "alternative facts" around airspace modernization talks. Fuller says that White House Economic Advisor Gary Cohn participated in a recent "White House Town Hall meeting" focused on infrastructure and other initiatives.
