The expression, “breaking news,” seems to be highly overused nowadays, but to hear that an autogyro has just received FAA type certification is truly - breaking news.

Stratos says they saw little advantage in developing a single jet-engine aircraft that has lower performance than an equivalent propeller aircraft. They decided to go with an aircraft that has a service ceiling of 41,000 feet and will cruise at 415 KTAS. Amid claims of the misuse of a federal authority, the FAA has placed a temporary flight restriction over the area where protesters are attempting to stop the Standing Rock oil pipeline in North Dakota. The TFR prevents all flights over the protest area except ai
