Whether it’s federal regulations, civil law, or just to neighbors they can’t get along, small multirotor drones are providing lawyers a new way to make a few bucks. Eric Joe was visiting his parent's home and flew his Hexacopter low and slow over what he says was private property and a shared county access road. Joe's neighbor had his son blast the $1,500 aircraft out of the sky with a 12-gauge shotgun ... and admitted it to Joe. The neighbor said he thought it was a "CIA surveillance device."

The short story of this new product is that you can simply plan a flight on your home computer, transfer the flight on to your iPad ForeFlight app, and have everything in place and ready to go when it’s time to fly. McBride points out that no special software is needed for this new feature. The planning is all done through ForeFlight.com, and it looks like you would expect ForeFlight flight planning to look. In other words, you don’t have to learn a new program.

Also: Spectra Reserves, Aero-Calendar, New Airman Standards, Spaceport America, Pointing Lasers, C-17 Training Network, Seaplane Sim

Supporters of the Santa Monica, California Airport have established an online campaign urging those concerned about a meeting between the City of Santa Monica and the FAA scheduled for July 8 to get involved by contacting members of the local Congressional delegation. The Santa Monica Airport Association has established a presence on the website One Click Politics with a form letter that will be sent automatically to the correct representative. It appears that Aspen Avionics is targeting the market of people who already have an avionics system they like but simply want to upgrade for ADS-B operation.
