Airborne 09.01.16: SpaceX Accident, AMA Exemption, FAA v Lithium, Viking Engine

Also: Kespry Drone, Upcoming AIPs!, Gogo Promotes, Enlisted RPA Pilots, Boeing Exec to Sukhoi, Yuneec Update, Return Robot Competition

While there’s a lot of buzz about the new FAR 107 regulations regarding non-recreational operation of small unmanned aerial systems, the Academy of Model Aeronautics is telling their members that this new regulation probably does not apply to them. While this new federal rule applies to many sUAS operators, the AMA says in a blog post that its members flying under the AMA safety program for recreational operations are not affected by FAR 107, which includes the requirement for the sUAS operator to hold an FAA issued Remote Pilot Certificate.

As new lithium batteries are approved for use on U.S. airliners and business airplanes, the FAA is reportedly applying more stringent safety standards for the power cells that power many critical systems on those aircraft. The Wall Street Journal reports that the higher safety standards apply to both rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries, as government documents show that many of the recognized risks are similar between the two types. Last week we reported that EAA Chapter 1083 and John Robinson, the founder of AV84all.org, have joined forces to build a Zenith CH 750 Cruzer in Salisbury, North Carolina to benefit all pilots with disabilities. The EAA chapter members will launch a Zenith build-project on September 10, of this year at Rowan County Airport. Zenith Aircraft will provide engineering oversight to help customize this Zenith CH 750 Cruzer to fit the needs of the pilots with disabilities who are involved in the project. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
