Airborne 07.06.15: Solar Impulse 2, FAA Reauth Delay, Airline Investigation

Also: SpaceX Test, The G500, Senate Appropriations, TSA Causes Cash Confiscation, NASA v Thunderstorms, Virgin Atlantic Cuts, Bristow Scholarship

Even those of us who love flying will have to admit that being cramped into a single place cockpit for 5 days in an aircraft that is lucky to hit 50 miles per hour has got to be pushing the limits of having a good time. That’s exactly what Pilot Andre Borschberg had done when he landed the solar-powered Solar Impulse 2 airplane at Kalaeloa Airport, Hawaii last Friday. The flight from Japan lasted 118 hours and covered about 5,144 miles across the Pacific Ocean. We had expected to see the draft FAA Reauthorization Bill release by now, but that isn’t going to happen. The U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee cancelled its planned release of a draft this month and it appears the bill now won't be shown to the public until sometim

Airborne 07.07.15: Stratus ADS-B Update, Top Gun Returns, Yuneec's New 4K UAV

Also: Jet Racing, Aero-Calendar, FAI Confirms Borschberg Record, Progress Reaches Orbit, Third Runway For Heathrow, EAA Tony Bingelis Award, Sporty’s Catalog Update

Appareo, ForeFlight and Sporty’s have introduced a new family of Stratus ADS-B receivers. The new Stratus 1S and Stratus 2S models offer improved performance, including better ADS-B reception, enhanced thermal capabilities, and a next generation power connector. It also offers a suite of security options, including the ability to hide the device’s WiFi network and add a password. It was inevitable, we suppose, that Hollywood would jump on the UAV bandwagon and make a movie in which they are the central focus. And so, it’s reported that a sequel to "Top Gun" is in the works, in which Tom Cruise will reprise his role as "Maverick," the irascible and cocky Navy fighter pilot.
