Also: Rocket Lab Selects Wallops, Corporate Angel Network, Airbus Helicopters, Air Force Funding

International media reports have confirmed that deliveries of the Terrafugia ‘flying car’ will start next year. Answering the question that had yet to be fully answered, Terrafugia’s ‘Transition’ will only be sold in the US, at first, and for an initial price of $279,000. Terrafugia started taking $10,000 deposit/reservations for the vehicle last July. They also announced new  features for the Transition production vehicle, a two-seat auto and aircraft, including updates to the interior, safety systems, motor, and flight instrumentation.

Airborne-Unmanned 10.23.18: DJI Refutes, UAVOS-Stratodynamics, Dave Mathewson

Also: FlightSafety Pt 107 Test, Global UAV, Rugo Drone Light, PAE ISR Partners With NASA

DO NOT tick off DJI with bogus info... DJI has demanded the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) withdraw a misleading video and blog post which claim to depict a collision between a DJI Phantom 2 drone and the wing of a small airplane. DJI notes that UDRI staged its video to create a scenario inconceivable in real life, at a higher speed than the combined maximum speed of the drone and airplane, which is also faster than FAA testing guidelines. UDRI has not disclosed its testing methodology or the resulting data, and while it acknowledged that a similar test with a simulated bird caused “more apparent damage,” it has only promoted the video showing damage from a DJI drone. UAVOS Inc., along with Stratodynamics Aviation Inc., is finalizing manufacturing of HiDRON, a stratospheric aircraft
