Airborne 06.17.19: Riley Flies!, An-124s Ordered Seized, Contaminated Fuel

Also: FAA Revokes, SAIB For Collins Pro Line, EAA Chapter 534 Scholarship, AAR Airlift Penalized

Some times... we forget what this aviation gig is all about... we get so wrapped up in the technology, the regs, the numbers, the physics, the business... that we often forget that flying is fun, inspirational, joyful and a motivating force in many a young life. Meet Riley Speidel... a 14 year old young lady who has been her Dad’s flying buddy for quite a while and his student throughout... over 100 flight hours, so far. Riley has been training in a motorglider, which allows her to solo at an earlier age than a conventional powered aircraft... and this one, the Pipistrel Sinus, is a particularly good trainer with excellent visibility, solid handling and serious soaring ability, to boot. Here’s one major ‘repo’ job... A Court in Kiev has ordered the seizure of five An-124s operat

Also: Wheeler Joins AirMap, GA-ASI And Team SkyGuardian Canada, Drone-Based AI Platform, FAA Partnership Opp's

Acting FAA Administrator Daniel Elwell announced National Drone Safety Awareness Week, a planned series of nationwide events focused on the safe operation of drones, at the UAS Symposium held last week in Baltimore, MD. "We want everyone in on the conversation," he said. AUVSI will be a key partner in the week, including through Know Before You Fly, the public education campaign started by AUVSI, the Academy of Model Aeronautics and the FAA. "We're thinking outside the box," Elwell said. "We want to be more than the regulator" and to be an enabler. The FAA has issued Hensel Phelps Construction Company of Washington, D.C., a Part 107 waiver to operate a DJI Phantom 4 drone, equipped with a parachute, over people. A waiver is required to operate a drone contrary to the rules in part 107. Th

AMA Drone Report 06.13.19: UK Drone Protest, New Amazon UAV, SafeAir Mavic

Also: Drone Safety At UAS Symposium, Microsoft FlightSim, Urban Air Mobility, Drone Airspace Webinar

Model airplane pilots in the UK are taking issue with proposed drone regulations set to go into effect in November, saying that the new rules could cause harm to their long-standing hobby. Representatives of the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) met the Aviation Minister Baroness Vere last week to discuss the situation. Under the proposal, the UK CAA would require the operators of all unmanned aircraft, including model airplanes, to pay a registration fee equivalent to about $21, acquire a license and take a competency test every three years. BMFA chief executive David Phipps said the proposed regulations should not be applied to model airplane pilots. Amazon has taken the wraps off their latest drone concept -- combining elements of a rotorcraft and fixed wing airframe. This concept may serv
