Airborne 10.03.17: FAA Drone Restrictions, AF1 Nixes Refueling, Elon Musk

At the request of U.S. national security and law enforcement agencies, the FAA is using its existing authority under 14 CFR § 99.7 – “Special Security Instructions” – to address concerns about unauthorized drone operations over 10 Department of the Interior (DOI) sites, including the Statue of Liberty and Mount Rushmore.

This is the first time the agency has placed airspace restrictions for unmanned aircraft, or “drones,” over DOI landmarks. The FAA has placed similar airspace restrictions over military bases that currently remain in place. The restrictions will be effective October 5, 2017. In a hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee on his renomination as chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford told the committee that it was the White House, not the Air Force, that decided to cut aerial refueling capability from the new Air Force One Boeing 747s as a cost-saving measure. The Air Force announced in August that it had reached a deal with Boeing to buy two inventory 747-8 aircraft that had been intended for a Russian airline but never delivered for the new Presidential planes, rather than having them built from the ground up. At the time, the Air Force said the aerial refueling capability would not be required. At an international space industry conference, Elon Musk laid out a potential new transportation program, last week.... Using new generation SpaceX vehicles to send people... From Earth -- to Earth. The plan involves a large new generation rocket, known as the ‘BFR’ (figure out what stands for by yourself, please), designed to loft passengers from larger cities to other larger cities a long distance away -- but in a very short period of time. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
