Just as we were tucking this episode of Airborne away, we received confirmation that Google had acquired UAV Startup, Titan Aerospace, run by Eclipse Founder, Vern Raburn.

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has granted an STC to Piper Aircraft and the Continental Motors Group for the installation of the Centurion 2.0S diesel engine aboard Piper Archer aircraft. Ground and flight tests on the Piper Archer, powered by a Centurion 155 horsepower Jet-A compression ignition engine, were conducted from Technify’s airport facility at Altenburg, Germany. If looks could kill and a name means anything, you’ve just got to love the Textron AirLand Scorpion. The company says it has now completed 50 hours of flight time since the start of flight testing. Flight Design has announced the last major component and supplier to be selected for their all-new four-seat aircraft. The Avionics suite for the $250,000 composite aircraft will be provided by Garmin, and is named the Flight Design Vision Touch by Garmin. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
