Airborne 09.13.19: Lost Plane Reward!, Hurricane Hunters, EASA v FAA

Also: New K-MAX Order, $514,558 Civil Penalty, Boeing 702X Satellites, JetBlue Foundation

The pilot and owner of a 1945 Grumman TBM Avenger is asking for help locating the airplane he was forced to abandon during a flight last year, and he's willing to pay $20,000 to anyone who finds the airplane. That's not as easy as it sounds. Ron Carlson, explains... "...I just want to refresh my offer of $20,000 cash to find my still missing 1945 Grumman TBM Avenger. Many of you are probably familiar with the story, but for those who are not, it crashed a year and a half ago after a catastrophic engine failure and fire, in early May of 2018." The Air Force Reserve’s 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, aka the Hurricane Hunters, have flown 25 missions, from Aug. 25 to their last, Sept. 6, in support of Hurricane Dorian. Operations began with three WC-130J aircrafts and one C-130J Super Hercules aircraf

Also: Drone Threat Against Heathrow, Football Foul-Up, Iran Arrests Drone Pilots, Flirtey Unveils 'The Future'

The ANAFI FPV drone from Parrot puts the operator in the cockpit of Parrot’s new ultraportable UAV. The aircraft delivers live, immersive video from its 180-degree tilting camera to the included Cockpit Glasses. Parrot says that the ANAFI FPV boasts in-depth manual controls for piloting and imaging, 4K HDR video and 21-megapixel images, easy-to-use modes and presets, portability, long battery life, and on the go USB-C charging. The FPV experience is undertaken by pairing a smartphone to ANAFI FPV with the FreeFlight 6.6 app, placing the phone in the included Cockpit glasses, placing them on your head, and taking flight.

Airborne-Unmanned 09.10.19: Remote ID NPRM Delay, UAvionix, ANAFI FPV

Also: Drone Delivery Test, AiRXOS UTM Pilot Program, FAA/UAS Partnership, Altitude Angel

DoT has delayed the publication of an NPRM concerning remote identification of UAVs until December of this year. According to the DOT Significant Rulemaking Report, the action would implement system(s) for the remote identification of certain unmanned aircraft systems. The remote identification of unmanned aircraft systems in the national airspace system would further address security and law enforcement concerns regarding the further integration of these aircraft into the national airspace while also enabling greater operational capabilities by these same aircraft. UAvionix offered free pingRX unmanned aircraft system (UAS) ADS-B receivers to first responders and UAS service organizations participating in rescue and recovery efforts associated with Hurricane Dorian. PingRX is a dual-frequency ADS-B receiver d

ANN FAQ: How Do I Become A News Spy?

We're Everywhere... Thanks To You!

Even with the vast resources and incredibly far-reaching scope of the Aero-News Network, every now and then a story that should be reported on slips through our fingers. There's a lot of news out there, and sometimes we just don't get to all of it. Fortunately for us, we realized early on we couldn't be everywhere at once -- curse the laws of physics! -- so we came up with the idea of News-Spies. Just as the title suggests, a News-Spy is a reader who notices a news item -- be it in the newspaper, on television, or something they came across at their own airport, town hall, at the office water cooler or just by walking down the street -- basically, any item a reader may think is newsworthy, that pertains to the world of aviation.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (09.16.19): Flameout Pattern

Flameout Pattern An approach normally conducted by a single-engine military aircraft experiencing loss or anticipating loss of engine power or control. The standard overhead approach starts at a relatively high altitude over a runway (“high key”) followed by a continuous 180 degree turn to a high, wide position (“low key”) followed by a continuous 180 degree turn final. The standard straight-in pattern starts at a point that results in a straight-in approach with a high rate of descent to the runway. Flameout approaches terminate in the type approach requested by the pilot (normally fullstop).
