Airborne-Unmanned 09.03.19: Stratospheric HiDRON, Pilot Fine, Restrictions Eased

Also: New Drone Study, Triton UAS Development, X-naut, Small UAS Threat Tracking

UAVOS and Stratodynamics have have conducted a flight of the HiDRON stratospheric glider to a new altitude of 98,450 feet breaking their previous 82,000 feet record.

From the start of the HIDRON until its landing in an automatic mode, the flight was conducted in a beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) mode. All went according to the plan with the UAVOS ground crew lifted HiDRON by a balloon to the 30 km target altitude and released in -76° F stratospheric winds. Following an investigation of two incidents in downtown Toronto, Transport Canada has issued Notices of Assessment of Monetary Penalties to an individual for 11 violations of the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARS) related to the operation of a remotely piloted aircraft system. During celebrations after the final game of the National Basketball Association Championship on June 13, 2019, and during the Toronto Raptors' victory celebration four days later, an individual flew a drone over both outdoor events. The flights appeared to be in violation of several provisions of the Canadian Aviation Regulations. The FAA is working with other federal agencies to minimize the impact of flight restrictions on drone operators flying near select federal facilities. The agency is working with the DoD to establish intermittent restrictions on drone flights within the lateral boundaries of select federal facilities during specified times. Currently, drone operators are prohibited from flying at these locations at all times. The FAA is working to ensure that these restrictions are narrowly tailored and remain in effect only when necessary. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
