Airborne 08.19.19: Blue Angel Incident, Tecnam P2012, New Orleans Tragedy

Also: VMS Eve Arrives 'Home', Bell 407GXi IFR Cert, Advanced G550 Course, Fake Mechanic

Somewhere, there are two US Navy Blue Angel pilots who possess some very LUCKY rabbit's feet. The US Navy has confirmed that a Wednesday practice flight went awry when two Blue Angel F/A-18s came into contact with each other... thankfully, without any serious damage or injury. Blue Angel Spokesperson, Lt. Michelle Tucker, described the incident on behalf of Rear Admiral Daniel Dwyer, chief of naval air training... "The No. 3 canopy made momentary contact with the underside of No. 1's outer wing during the Diamond 360 maneuver," she noted. Tecnam has announced that the FAA has awarded a full Type Certificate to the P2012 Traveller with the number A00076CE under Part 23 of the Federal Aviation Regulations. Tecnam is now on track to commence deliveries, beginning with the first 20 of the one hundred P2012 Travelle

AMA Drone Report 08.15.19: Amazon Petition, Mavic-Mini?, Eek! Drone Flamethrower

Also: Drone Shooter, DJI Pocket, DroneResponders, Passenger Drone Test

Amazon has petitioned the FAA for a waiver from several current rules governing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to allow the company to begin delivery services with its MK27 drone. Waivers requested by Amazon would, among other things, allow the aircraft to operate without a certificate of airworthiness and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). They further request that the aircraft be exempted from rules governing altitude, VFR fuel requirements and maintenance documentation. The rumor mill is ripe with the possibility that DJI may soon be unveiling a ‘Mini-Me’ version of the popular Mavic. While many hoped to hear the announcement in the same session that revealed the latest variation of the DJI Osmo 3 (which we want... bad), DJI remains mum for the moment. Video has surfaced though, as well as a spec sheet, and the detai
