Airbus Perlan Mission II, an initiative to fly a glider to the edge of space to collect insights on high-altitude flight, weather, and climate change, returned to flight this week. Pilots Jim Payne and Miguel Iturmendi achieved its highest altitude to date, reaching 30,615 feet. Perlan 2 will spend spring soaring in mountain wave conditions in the skies above the Sierra Nevada, before deploying in May to Argentina. “This past year our team gained invaluable insight and experience from flying the glider in and around the Andes Mountains,” said Ed Warnock, CEO of The Perlan Project. Dronemaker DJI has released more details about its soon-to-be-available first person VR goggles which have been in development for a year or so.

AMA Drone Report 04.27.17: Kitty Hawk Flyer, College Drones, DJI VR Goggles

Also: Airborne at XPONENTIAL, AMA On Mil-Airspace, Canadian Drones, AMA Legislative Efforts

With an appearance not all that different than many of the multi-copters we’re all flying these days, Google’s Larry Page, has entered the aviation arena with a personal flying machine that is supposed to operate in the 'ultralight' category. The 'Kitty Hawk Flyer' is an all-electric aircraft. Page's effort claims the aircraft to be "safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes. We publicly revealed the working prototype in April 2017. The official Flyer will be available by the end of the year." Racing is all the rage among the drone community, of late... an

Blue Angels Mishap Occurs During Formation Flight with USAF Thunderbirds

Two Navy F/A-18s 'Swap Paint' But Recover and Land Safely

The need for precision in any formation, much less the tolerances demonstrated by a number of the world's finest military jet demonstration teams, is unquestioned. On a highly anticipated combination formation flight series conducted with the USAF Thunderbirds, late Wednesday, two of the Blue Angels made glancing contact due to what is suspected to some unanticipated wake turbulence from the other jets. Upon recovery in Pensacola, both jets received 'minor' maintenance and were quickly returned to service. Both pilots are also back in the active roster, as well, and were part of this past weekend's performances in Beaufort, SC. The incident occurred in close proximity to Pensacola Beach, out over the water, in trail behind the USA Thunderbirds.
