Noncommissioned and senior noncommissioned officers interested in transferring to the Air Force’s newest enlisted aviation Air Force Specialty Code have until Nov. 15, 2017, to submit their applications to meet the next selection board. More than 800 applicants applied for the program last year.

“This is an opportunity for active-duty Airmen in the ranks of staff sergeant-select through senior master sergeants who meet and complete the application requirements to be considered for the 1U1X1, Enlisted Remotely Piloted Aircraft Pilot, career field,” said Master Sgt. Mark Moore, Air Force’s Personnel Center Career Enlisted Aviator Assignments Manager. FAI, the World Air Sports Federation, has chosen Shenzhen, China to host the 1st FAI World Drone Racing Championships in the first half of November 2018. The FAI Executive Board decided to award the event to Shenzhen after a specially appointed committee evaluated the three qualifying bids from Albuquerque (USA), Barcelona (Spain) and Shenzhen (People's Republic of China). FAI President Frits Brink announced the decision at the 111th FAI General Conference in Lausanne, Switzerland. A wild YouTube video posted by a group known as 'Rotor Riot' has drawn the attention of police in Delta, British Columbia in Canada. The video shows a drone flying only a few feet away from The Alex Fraser Bridge, one of the most heavily-traveled bridges in the region. Delta police are studying the video to see what, if any charges could or should be brought against the operator. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
