Airborne-NextGen 11.28.23: Pegasus Gyroplane, Stratolaunch Hypersonic, ERAU UAVs

ARC AeroSystems announced the return of the Avian Pegasus Gyroplane.

Avian stemmed from employees of Avro Canada, designing their gyroplanes in Canada and ultimately producing 3 prototype pre-production aircraft to work through the certification process. Ultimately, the firm died out in the early 70s, with its assets put up for sale. One remaining prototype, along with the design's rights and type certification, found their way into ARC AeroSystems' hands in 2023. Stratolaunch LLC has continued its efforts to develop a Mach 5 capable aircraft, helped along by a familiarly Rutanesque design in the form of Scaled Composites' Roc. Stratolaunch had planned to offer satellite launch services by taking advantage of lower costs achieved by mid-air ignition, working with Scaled Composites of Burt Rutan fame to design a twin-fuselage aircraft capable of lifting a small rocket up as high as possible. A new program at Embry-Riddle has begun training Uncrewed Aircraft Systems students into becoming Remote Pilot Instructors. The program is reportedly successful so far, with 13 instructors produced, and each holding Trusted Operator Program credentials. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-NextGen!!!
