Airborne 04.11.14: Lear 85 Flies, FAA v UAVs-Again, CAMA Demands Med Oversight

The Learjet 85 aircraft has successfully completed its first flight that marks the start of the aircraft’s flight test program leading up to the first customer delivery.

The flight departed from Wichita-Mid Continent International Airport and lasted approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes. Once again the FAA has gone after drone flying as if they actually had regulations to control it. Only last month, an NTSB judge ruled that the FAA did not have control over drone flights because they have not gone through a regulatory process to control them. The Civil Aviation Medical Association (CAMA) representing doctors who perform FAA medical exams, are pushing back against proposed legislation that would do away with a requirement for a third class medical certificate for some pilots. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
