Airborne 03.13.24: We Fly Deltahawk!, Kite Magnetics eTrainer, Pulsejet!

Also: FAA's New Budget, EUTELSAT Via BelugaST, SnF Warbirds, 2025 World Games Drone Race

ANN had an exceptional opportunity this week, with a chance to get a little operational experience flying an aircraft equipped with the Deltahawk DHK180 aviation diesel engine. 

The flight down from Racine, WI, the day before, covered a total of 818 NM, at an average 148 Kts True Airspeed and a total fuel burn of 45 gallons of Jet A -- nonstop. CKD Aero has partnered up with Kite Magnetics to create the Dakota e-Hawk, the “world’s most cost-effective two-seat electric aircraft”. The e-Hawk is intended to be the first in a lineup of kit aircraft using Kite’s KM-60 electric engine and running gear. The KM-60 is much like an old-school piston engine, offering air-cooled, direct drive propulsion with 60 kW (about 80 horsepower). The legendary sound of the old V-1 of WWII fame is back, except this time it's powering an uncrewed, combat-ready, UAV. The autonomous aspects of drones have finally caught up to the point where having a super cheap, simplistic jet engine makes sense. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
