Ya had to see it to believe it... An ingenious Latvian UAS operation has pulled off an exercise in which a skydiver used one of their massive 28 rotor multi-copters to make an eye-popping skydive.

On May 12, a 28-propeller drone built by Aerones lifted skydiver, Ingus Augstkalns, to a height of nearly 1100 feet, from where he accomplished the planned jump. The company, Aerones, has already demonstrated a number of dramatic heavy lift missions and solutions. GAMA has released first quarter 2017 aircraft shipments showing that both total airplane and rotorcraft shipments increased compared to the same period in 2016, while combined billings declined to a total of $4.1 billion. Piston airplane shipments increased in the first quarter of 2017 to 203 compared to 2016, a 6.3 percent increase. Business jet shipments also increased by 6.6 percent to 130 units. The Airlander 10 resumed flight testing on Wednesday, May 10. All objectives of the planned flight were accomplished. It flew for a total of 180 minutes. This test flight marked the resumption of the flight test program of the Airlander 10, which started on August 17, 2016.  During each of its 3 phases, the Airlander will perform more tasks and be permitted to fly further away from its base in Cardington. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
