As the efforts of American farmers bring about the onset of the nation’s growing season, the National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA) has respectfully requested that operators of UAS—drones, remote control aircraft, and the like—be mindful of low-altitude manned agricultural aircraft operations. 

Archer Aviation’s eVTOL, dubbed Midnight, had recently completed a six-week series of tests in RUAG’s Large Subsonic Wind Tunnel in Emmen, Switzerland. Archer stated that the tests had covered a range of data germane to the aircraft’s performance, stability, and control characteristics, as well as its resilience to icing. Dawn Aerospace has successfully completed the first series of rocket-powered test-flights of its Mk-II Aurora spaceplane. The flight-test campaign was carried out at New Zealand’s Glentanner Aerodrome on 29, 30, and 31 March. The accomplishment occasions an important milestone in the Aurora platform’s development and advances the company’s stated mission of “revolutionizing space access.” All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-NextGen!!!
