Airborne 08.21.19: F16s 4 Sale, Roadster In Space, 200th Bell 505

Also: NetJets Pilot Sues, United 'Bottle to Throttle', Inhofe Workforce Development, Earnhardt Update

An aircraft brokerage and leasing firm in Palm Beach, FL has listed an F-16AM Block 20 Mid-Life-Update aircraft for sale on its website, and the company says it has three similar aircraft available that could form a "mini-squadron" of the airplanes for a private owner. The plane is being offered by Jet Lease. It was acquired from Jordan which has been liquidating some of its older-model F-16s after that country bought newer models from Belgium and the Netherlands between 2008 and 2017. What is different about this sale is that these are not demilitarized airplanes to be used as status symbols for the uber-wealthy. A five-foot, two-inch tall female pilot has sued her former employer, NetJets, after being told she was too short to fly one of the company's planes. Pilot Shari Drerup filed the lawsuit

However, as legislators begin to have a better understanding about the importance of our long-standing hobby, most of these bills were not overly concerning. Depending on the proposed restrictions or requirements, the AMA Government Affairs team has determined a level of engagement... The FAA has issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking to work with stakeholders on the administration of a new aeronautical knowledge test for recreational drone operators.

The Air Force Research Laboratory and DZYNE Technologies successfully completed a two-hour initial flight of a revolutionary Robotic Pilot Unmanned Conversion Program called ROBOpilot Aug. 9 at Dugway Proving Ground in Utah. “Imagine being able to rapidly and affordably convert a general aviation aircraft, like a Cessna or Piper, into an unmanned aerial vehicle, having it fly a mission autonomously, and then returning it back to its original manned configuration,” said Dr. Alok Das, Senior Scientist with AFRL’s Center for Rapid Innovation. ROBOpilot interacts with an aircraft the same way as a human pilot would. Amazon has petitioned the FAA for a waiver from several current rules governing UAVs to allow the company to begin delivery services with its MK27 drone.
