Airborne 02.16.24: SnF Constellation!, Drone Soccer, VTOL Challenge

Also: Mandatory CVR Upgrades?, Joby Air Taxi, Hartzell in India, Tuskegee NEXT Summer Program

A rare appearance by the Lockheed VC-121A “MacArthur Bataan” is scheduled for this year's Sun 'n Fun 2024, granting attendees a chance to see one of the last 2 survivors of the type. 

MacArthur Bataan, manufactured in 1948, cuts a familiar cold war figure as a classic rendition of a 4-engined prop airliner. The quintessentially post-war design language has yet to be seen again, with a distinctive tri-tail design, sloping roofline, rounded wing, and 4 monstrous radial engines. The Academy of Model Aeronautics reiterated a partnership it's held iwth the US Drone Soccer program, drawing additional attention to the group's STEM-focused educational opportunities. The AMA boosted a statement from USDS announcing preparations for the first District Championships next month, marking off a big milestone in the fledgling activity organization. A new incentive campaign seeks to seed out the design for a single-occupant, autonomous, emergency response aircraft with a $2 million dollar prize up for grabs. The deal was announced at the Vertical Flight Society’s Transformative Vertical Flight meeting earlier this month as the GoAERO Prize. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
