An enterprising Pennsylvania man has been making a living by offering his drone services to local deer hunters, tracking down the game they hit in an effort to make good on their kills (and eliminate undue suffering to some animals)  - a job the state arrested him for. Wisk Aero has entered into a partnership with the City of Sugar Land, Texas, to bring their electric, 12-engine VTOL aircraft to taxi service in the area. Wisk has been hard at work pursuing regulatory approval for their 4-seat, 6th generation air taxi, looking forward to starting Part 135 passenger operations within a handful of years.

Flightcell Satcom Terminals Announced for Small to Medium Aircraft

Compact, Reliable Gear Grants Global Access to Iridium Certus 100

Flightcell's new DZMx has made the cut to offer access to improved satellite coverage when paired with the Guardian Mobility G6 and G6-S. The combination provides "cost effective mid-band mobile satellite services" for small to medium aircraft. The DZMx is optimized for aircraft that have strict size, weight, and power requirements, giving it a nicely compact footprint all around. It acts as an all-in-one cellular and satellite voice, data, and tracking system when used alone, but with the addition of a Guardian G6 modem, the global Iridium Certus 100 network can be used. That combination drew special attention from Flightcell, who profiled the capability of the new kit in an announcement to clients and operators.

Over-reach, maybe? EAA and the EAA Vintage Aircraft Association (VAA) have both filed comments opposing a sweeping airworthiness directive (AD) proposed by the FAA affecting almost every high-wing vintage Piper aircraft. The AD would require rudders built of 1025 carbon steel to be replaced with new rudders made from 4130N low-alloy steel.

NBAA Questions Sweeping IRS Plan to Audit BizAv Use

Is Uncle Sam Targeting Successful Businesses?

NBAA is questioning the Internal Revenue Service’s plan, announced this week, to “begin dozens of audits” of business aircraft use by American companies and entrepreneurs. “Today’s announcement by the IRS amounts to nothing more than an audit in search of a problem, and an attempt to broadly paint with a negative brush the thousands of U.S. companies of all sizes that rely on business aircraft to effectively compete in a global marketplace,” said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.
