Also: Airport Discrimination, Jeff Skiles, EAA Chapters, NBAA's Quiet Guidelines, United Consolidates, Dreamliner Display, Iraqi General F-16 Loss

Whether it’s federal regulations, civil law, or just to neighbors they can’t get along, small multirotor drones are providing lawyers a new way to make a few bucks. Eric Joe was visiting his parent's home and flew his Hexacopter low and slow over what he says was private property and a shared county access road. Joe's neighbor had his son blast the $1,500 aircraft out of the sky with a 12-gauge shotgun ... and admitted it to Joe. The neighbor said he thought it was a "CIA surveillance device." A U.S. District Judge in New York has delivered a win-win ... or some might say a lose-lose ... decision on helicopter restrictions at East Hampton Airport. The judge said that the town of East Hampton could not impose a "one-flight-per-week" limit on h

Also: Spectra Reserves, Aero-Calendar, New Airman Standards, Spaceport America, Pointing Lasers, C-17 Training Network, Seaplane Sim

Supporters of the Santa Monica, California Airport have established an online campaign urging those concerned about a meeting between the City of Santa Monica and the FAA scheduled for July 8 to get involved by contacting members of the local Congressional delegation. The Santa Monica Airport Association has established a presence on the website One Click Politics with a form letter that will be sent automatically to the correct representative. It appears that Aspen Avionics is targeting the market of people who already have an avionics system they like but simply want to upgrade for ADS-B operation. Now, the Aspen ATX100 ADS-B transceiver interfaces with the Garmin GNS 430W and 530W series of GPS navigators. As it appears Congress is moving closer to proposing privat
