Airborne-UnCrewed 05.17.22: FAA Diverts eVTOL, DJI’s Mini Pro 3, Drone Fishing!

Recognizing the importance of keeping abreast of the technological developments in the industry, the FAA is reconsidering its approach to the certification of eVTOLs.

On 16 December 2016, the FAA published the final rule representing an overhaul of airworthiness standards for GA airplanes, specifically in an attempt to enable faster adoption of “innovative safety-enhancing technologies into small airplanes, while reducing costs for the aviation industry.” DJI recently launched its DJI Mini 3 Pro, a palm-able device weighing a tad over 0.5 lbs, featuring tri-directional obstacle sensing, true vertical shooting, focus track, and 4K HDR video. DJI promises extended flight time of just over 30 minutes, however, with the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus, you may expect a bit above 45 minutes. The Hawaiian fishing community is awaiting the outcome of Governor David Ige’s actions regarding the use of drones to fish in or near the state’s waters. Mr. Ige, Governor of Hawaii is expected to either vote yes or veto Senate Bill SB2065 which had already passed Hawaii’s House of Representatives and its Senate earlier this month. SB2065 permits the use of drones for “simple reconnaissance”, and those wishing to use a drone for the approved purpose must then apply to the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) for a permit. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-UnCrewed!!!
