AMA Drone Report 10.19.17: Drone/Airliner Midair?, FAA Sued, CNN 107 Waiver

Also: Swedish Drone Ban Lifted, Rocky Mountain Hobby-Expo, Drone Shark Detection, Kittyhawk DJI Sync 2.0

Recent reports about a midair collision between a jet and a drone have been mis-stated or based on pretty tenuous detail.

Worse; Canada’s Marc Garneau, their Minister of Transport has jumped all over the story, even issuing a press release long before any real detail has emerged. What do we know? On 12 October 2017, a Skyjet Beech King Air A100 (a turbo prop... NOT a jet) was on an IFR flight to the Jean Lesage International Airport in Québec City, Quebec with 8 souls on board. The aircraft was approaching runway 24 and had just passed the final approach fix when the crew claims to have seen a drone at the extremity of the left wing. A drone operator from Arkansas named Michael Reichert has filed a class-action lawsuit against the FAA because he has not yet received a refund for his $5 drone registration fee. Reichert registered his drone as was required by the FAA. But when a federal judge deemed that the registration was in violation of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, he contacted the FAA for a refund... The FAA has awarded the first Part 107 waiver for operation over people to CNN. This approval represents an industry milestone, as this new waiver for the first time will enable real-world UAS operations over people.  The waiver allows CNN to fly the Vantage Robotics Snap UAS to conduct operations over open-air assemblies (crowds) of people, up to 150 feet AGL. “This waiver signifies a critical step forward not only for CNN’s UAS operations, but also the commercial UAS industry at large,” said David Vigilante, SVP of Legal for CNN. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!
