Airborne-Unmanned 07.25.17: Airspace Auto-Authorization, False Drone Hit, CA Regs

Greatly anticipated, it appears that this fall, some 50 airports will begin providing Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), which will give UAS operators the ability to “apply for instant, digital approval to fly in U.S. controlled airspace using the same applications they use for flight planning and in-flight situational awareness.” Currently, FAA authorization is required for flights in controlled airspace, at certain times of day, or near sensitive locations. Authorization requests are subject to long waiting periods and labor-intensive manual approvals, which can add more time to, or entirely halt, the process of commercial UAS operations.

ANN’s Tom Patton got an update on the engine from Marc Becker from Rotax. Piper president and CEO Simon Caldecott said at AirVenture on Monday that a possible material specification issue had cropped up with the M600, leading to a precautionary grounding of the fleet of 36 delivered airplanes. Caldecott said that there was a material thickness issue with the aft wing spar that was discovered in one airplane that had been delivered to a dealer. Out of a
