Airborne 02.05.21: Airspeeder!, Drones Deliver COVID Tests, EBACE2021

Also: No More Mr. Nice Guy On SFAR, M600/SLS Simulator, Gulfstream Expansion, AW139 20th Anniversary

Airspeeder is revealing first looks at what they call the world's first fully functioning electric flying racing car.

The Airspeeder Mk3, is a full-sized remotely-operated electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle (eVTOL). It will compete in an upcoming remotely-piloted Airspeeder racing series that will stand as a technical test-bed and feeder series to a manned racing series in 2022. A full grid of Mk3 electric flying race-craft is currently being manufactured at Airspeeder and Alauda's technical HQ in Adelaide, South Australia. More than 10 identical racing vehicles will be produced and supplied to teams in 2021. Flirtey and Vault Health have successfully conducted drone deliveries of the first FDA authorized saliva based COVID-19 test. In November 2020, Flirtey and Vault Health announced a partnership to test drone delivery of the at-home saliva based COVID-19 test. Using Flirtey's drones to deliver the test kits to homes helps eliminate exposure risks and creates further convenience, especially for those who do not live in proximity to on-site testing locations. Flirtey has now successfully conducted drone deliveries of at-home COVID-19 test kits. Due to the global COVID-19 crisis, the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) have confirmed that they have cancelled the 2021 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2021), while making plans for some sort of virtual EBACE programming from May 18-20, the previously planned dates for EBACE2021. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
