Norwegian Air Shuttle has decided to change its cockpit procedures so that two crew members always are present in the cockpit. There’s no getting around it, people are concerned about the issue of privacy when it comes to UAV operation. A bill introduced in the Maine legislature would make it a crime to fly a UAV over someone's property without their express permission.

Also: ALPA v UAVs, Aero-Community Update: XPrize, FAA Streamlines UAS COAs, Airport Infrastructure, ATC Reform, New SpaceX Rocket

Data retrieved from the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) aboard the Germanwings Airbus A320 that went down in the French Alps indicates that the pilot had been locked out of the cockpit before the plane impacted terrain. A senior French military official involved in the investigation said that initially there had been a light knocking on the door, then more insistent knocking and shouting.
