Aero-News: Quote of the Day (01.22.17)

Aero-News Quote of the Day "During the holiday season, it's especially important to give back.

Airborne 01.20.17: Astro-NIMBY!, Airbus Flying Car, JetSuiteX v KSMO

Also: Daher Delivers, Aviation Progress, Tecnam P2012, D.B. Cooper, MH370 Search, T-45C Accident, Piper

We previously reported that studies indicate many complaints about airport noise come from a few people with a dedicated mission to file the complaints. It seems that one such person has been identified in the Washington DC area. Well known ESA astronaut, Roberto Vittori, moved his family to the Washington DC area where he bought a house in the Hillandale neighborhood north of Georgetown. After moving there, instrument procedures at Ronald Reagan National Airport were changed because of NextGen shift in flight patterns. Vittori claims the noise is now intolerable and he admits to filing some 3,000 complaints since the changes in the flight patterns were implemented. The Airbus Urban Mobility Division may conduct tests of an autonomous "flying car" later this year, according to Airbus CEO Tom End

A settlement agreement has been reached between the FAA and the drone operating company, SkyPan International of Chicago.

Under the terms of the agreement, SkyPan will pay a $200,000 civil penalty. Additional penalties apply if the company fails to comply with the terms of the settlement agreement.

Airborne 01.17.17: Gene Cernan, KSMO NIMBY's Threaten AvBiz, Lily Drones Kaput

Also: Gone West: Bill Bordeleau, Aero-Calendar, Duncan Aviation, Norwegian Air, Drone Advisory, QinetiQ, Drone v Space Needle

We’re sorry to report that, according to a Tweet from NASA, Apollo 17 Commander Gene Cernan passed away on Monday at the age of 82. Captain Cernan was one of fourteen astronauts selected by NASA in October 1963. He logged 566 hours and 15 minutes in space-of which more than 73 hours were spent on the surface of the moon. It’s reported that Cernan’s flight to the moon was the most scientifically rewarding of all the lunar flights. When speaking of all the crazy happenings going on at Santa Monica Airport in California, it leads us to paraphrase the statement from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, which goes something like this, “The protesters doth protest too much, methinks.” In modern English, we might say the protesters are making fools of themselv
