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 last 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 t

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

Airborne 07.14.17: XP-82 Twin Mustang, KSFO Near-Miss, Pelton's Appeal

Also: Commercial Pilot Database, AEA ADS-B Sweepstakes, F-35s, ecoDemonstrator, Heathrow Expansion, Sun Country, Draken Deploys

Tom Reilly's XP-82 Twin Mustang restoration project reached several milestones over the past month, and the aircraft restoration expert says that the project is "nearing completion." On the blog on which he provides updates, Reilly wrote at the first of the month that in the past month, the outboard fairings from each leading edge to trailing edge of the fuselage-to-wing have been completed. The final seam welding of the two outboard forward fairings was completed as June came to an end.  The last two parts to complete are the two lower halves of the inboard side of each fuselage-to-center-section fairing. This could have gone really really badly... The pilot of an Air Canada A320 on approach to San Francisco International Airport lined up to land on a taxiway on whi
