The National Aeronautic Association announced Tuesday that nine aerospace projects and accomplishments will compete for the 2015 Robert J. Collier Trophy. For 104 years, The Robert J.

Once again it’s time to play the amusing and informative community game of, “Who owns this airspace?” A townhome development homeowners association in Mendham, New Jersey has passed a resolution banning the flight of model airplanes and drones in the neighborhood.

Flight Design USA signed a production and distribution agreement with AeroJones Aviation of Taichung, Taiwan to supply Flight Design aircraft and spare parts for the U.S. market. AeroJones Aviation has been producing the CTLS series for primarily the Southeast Asian market and has been working with Flight Design for more than two years.
