Airborne-UnCrewed 08.09.22: VerdeGo Aero, Skylift UAVs, FAA Drone Regs Upheld

VerdeGo Aero, the Daytona Beach-based manufacturer of hybrid-electric aerospace power-plants, has succeeded in raising $12-million in a Series “A” funding campaign spearheaded by RTX Ventures (Raytheon Technologies). The monies will finance the expansion of VerdeGo’s operation and accelerate the development of emergent hybrid-propulsion technologies. Founded in 2017 by the grandson of Charles Lindbergh—yes, THAT Charles Lindbergh—VerdeGo initially set out to develop its own line of eVTOL aircraft. In 2018, however, the company executed a decisive pivot, shifting its objective from aircraft-maker to hybrid-propulsion pioneer. Skylift, the U.K.-based maker of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) founded by a pilot, a sailor, and software developer, is making ready to demonstrate the ability of its drones to deliver prescri

Joby Aviation Expands DOD Affiliation

USAF and USMC Partnerships Advance eVTOL

Joby Aviation, the California-based, Toyota-backed designer and builder of Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) vehicles, is expanding its existing contract with the U.S. Air Force’s Agility Prime program—an initiative the service launched in 2020 to experiment, test, and generally hasten the development of eVTOL for cross commercial and military use. Joby’s Department of Defense (DOD) contract now includes a partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps, which will test the suitability of Joby’s eVTOL to non-combat missions such as resupply, relocation of personnel, and emergency medical response.

The List Keeps Growing... Fighter Aircraft Lost at Sea

Third-Down and 300-Million

The notion that tragedies occur in sets of three has been proved apocryphal. There is no “Rule of Threes;” but there ought to be. Since November 2021, aircraft carrier mishaps have sent a trio of NATO fighter jets—two of them highly-advanced F-35 Lightning II variants worth well over $230-million—to watery and opprobrious graves.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (08.14.22)

“Our end goal is, the United States of America is half men, half women. Well, space should be at least that... If we cannot make these spacecraft equitable, and we can’t fly any type of person on them, then we need to look at our systems and reevaluate.” Source: Reid Weisman, chief over the astronaut program, parroting the Biden Administration's politically correct rhetoric, seemingly placing as much emphasis on social engineering as aerospace engineering.

ALPA: New FAA Data Shows Pilots Plentiful

ALPA Refutes Pilot Shortage Narrative

Amidst deafening caterwauling to the contrary, ALPA—the world’s largest pilot union—has consistently and confidently refuted claims that the airline industry is in the incipient throes of death by pilot shortage. On 11 August 2022, ALPA bolstered its position by citing data that establishes convincingly—if not incontrovertibly—that the ongoing racket being made about pilot shortages is more so an attempt by airlines to divert attention from their shabby performance and chronic mismanagement than it is an assertion of fact.
