This month, Aurora’s Autonomous Aerial Cargo Utility System (AACUS) successfully delivered cargo to U.S. Marines in the Integrated Training Exercise at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms in California. AACUS completed its first closed loop mission from takeoff to landing for its intended purpose of actual cargo resupply to Marines, as it successfully completed an autonomous cargo sustainment flight delivering more than 500 pounds of water, gasoline, MREs, and replacement communications gear including a packed cooler to represent urgently required cargo such as blood. Aurora says that this was the first ever “autonomous point-to-point cargo resupply mission” providing critical logistics support to Marines in need. The HorseFly truck-launched Autonomous Drone Package Delivery System is now making real-life package deliveries to homes in the Cincin

Oshkosh 2018 is ramping up to be an outstanding addition to an aviator’s MUST-SEE list... especially now that we’ve learned that one of the homebuilt aircraft community’s most amazing efforts is due to make an appearance. Known as ‘Bally’s Bomber’ the third scale B-17 that has been painstakingly crafted over the course of more than 17 years is now looking to make its debut at Oshkosh, this July 23-29. The Bally Bomber for the first time last November 14th, though builder Jack Bally originally envisioned the project to require some five years or so... The result is gorgeous.... One of the seven wonders of the homebuilt aircraft world... this one requiring 25,000 rivets, and some 40,000 man-hours. One of the more intriguing offerings we’ll see at Oshkosh 2018, and undoubtedly an upcoming OSHStar, is the Chipper STOL -- a two place aircraft kit from Bel
