The FAA has launched its "12 Days of Drones" campaign to educate the public about the best practices inherent to the hobby. While drones have settled into a somewhat common and well understood hobbyist aircraft or videography assistant, public understanding and familiarity with UAV regulations remains lower than desired.The agency is sharing a specific topic or bundle of knowledge for each of 12 days through December 17th, building a short and effective knowledge base for incoming drone pilots. Skyborne Airline Academy celebrated the achievement of 2 recent ATPL UK graduates joining Flyby Technology as Beyond Line of Visual Sight Drone Operators. The students now put their training to use, supporting flight operations for an NHS trial to evaluate drug delivery for the Isle of Wight. Belgian developer LuGus Studios has released the newest addition to its Liftoff series of

The US Senate has confirmed the nomination of C. B. “Sully” Sullenberger III to be the U.S. representative on the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who along with fellow “Miracle on the Hudson” pilot Jeff Skiles, became instantly known on January 15, 2009, when they successfully landed an airliner on the Hudson River following a complete loss of engine power after the aircraft struck a flock of geese. A joint study on the impact of 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on both engines of a commercial jet have shown highly promising results in the early phases of analysis, says Airbus. Working with fellow industry veterans Rolls-Royce, fuel production specialist Neste, and German Research Centre DLR, the test is the first time that both engines of a comme

Airborne 12.01.21: A-4 4 Sale!, Aura Aero Approved, Blue Origin's Next

Also: Kelowna Expands GA, NASA Delays SpaceWalk, A350 Paint Quality Complaint, DA62 MPP Sale

For those of you looking to make sure that ANN’s Jim Campbell gets a great Christmas gift, we have an idea for you... A 1960 Douglas A-4 Skyhawk has been listed for sale at an asking price of $995,000. Downright cheap in comparison to other veteran aircraft, often in multiples of the price when available at all. Not only collectible for its civilian airworthiness, combat pedigree, or historical value, the Skyhawk represents one of the few aircraft on the market that could provide a user with the full fighter-jet experience. Aura Aero has received Part 21 Subpart G approval for the entirety of its industrial facilities. The French civil aviation authority took 18 months to audit the Toulouse-Francazal and Bernay fabrication sites as well as the primary subcontractors for the company before approval. This will allow for serial production and assembly

Also: Commemorative Air Force, Skydiving Museum Fundraiser, SmartSky, Shadin Avionics

The Experimental Aviation Association has passed a big milestone for the once niche aviation organization. Begun in 1953 by a group wanting grassroots, enthusiastic support for aviation, the EAA has grown to over 250,000 members for the first time in history. The quarter of a million mark comes at the tail end of a bonanza over the last 5 years that saw group membership grow by 25%. Daher's Kodiak celebrated a milestone when it recently delivered the 300th plane, an important moment for the high-wing, turboprop workhorse. Introduced in 2007 as a STOL option for those needing reliable, capacious, hardy aircraft for remote missions, the Kodiak saw itself quickly pressed into service in humanitarian, medical, governmental, and special mission sectors. The Kodiak squared off with similar backwoods aircraft in offering an unimproved, dirt-strip performance

The SportPlane Resource Guide RETURNS!!!!

Emphasis On Growing The Future of Aviation Through Concentration on 'AFFORDABLE FLYERS'

It's been a number of years since the Latest Edition of Jim Campbell's HUGE SportPlane Resource Guide first saw the light of day. That massive 1100 page book last featured over 800 exciting sport aircraft from all over the SportPlane universe... at a time when the SportPlane industry was still a healthy, thriving enterprise (those were the days...). While there has been some consideration, off and on, toward updating the nearly 5 pound book, the near implosion of the SportPlane and kit industry over the last decade has made such a pursuit an unwieldy one... until now.
