Airborne-Unmanned 07.09.19: NUAIR-Flytrex, Airbus Delivers, Impossible Aerospace

Also: Oshkosh Coming Soon!, Drone Investment, DJI Objects, VerdeGo Aero Following tests completed by Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research (NUAIR) at the New York UAS Test Site in Rome, New York, Israel-based drone company Flytrex, has had the parachute on its package delivery drones validated as compliant with industry standards. This is the second parachute standard validation performed by NUAIR. Currently, the FAA prohibits most drones from being flown directly over people. Professional drone operators can apply for a waiver from that restriction if they can demonstrate they have robust safety mitigations in place including having a validated parachute. Airbus and the Hauts-de-France region have signed a partnership agreement to assess the economic development potential of air deliveries on a regional scale. The Hauts-de-France region aims to become Europe’s logistics hub. Regional authorities are particularly supporting the creation of the ‘e-valley’ park, a logistics park dedicated to new e-commerce services, on the site of the former Cambrai airbase. For this activity, air delivery is an innovative development focus. US-1 unmanned aircraft from aero-tech firm, Impossible Aerospace, made another public demonstration on Friday June 28th -- this time at a four-alarm construction site fire burning only minutes away from the company's Santa Clara headquarters. Equipped with thermal and optical sensors, the aircraft hovered on station for one hour and six minutes before the fire was extinguished. The US-1 delivered high-def thermal video to ground crews, allowing them to identify hot spots to share with first responders. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!

AMA Drone Report 07.11.19: AMA Exec Council, DJI Objects, More FAA Restrictions

Also: Oshkosh Awaits!, MMC Partners W/Yuneec, Drone Strike Assessment, No Drone... Turtle! Late last month, the AMA Executive Council and the Government Affairs team took a trip to Washington, D.C. to advocate for our hobby. Throughout these meetings, AMA emphasized their commitment to safety and education -- also highlighting examples of how flying model aircraft is a pathway to STEM-related to careers and the work we do to support local charities. Importantly, AMA discussed the upcoming FAA rule-makings for recreational UAS, and were encouraged by the positive dialogue. The FAA recognizes the importance of the model aviation community and wants to continue our longstanding partnership. On Capitol Hill, members of Congress pledged support to AMA and stand ready to weigh-in with the FAA on our behalf, as needed. DJI has released an open letter in which it expresses "deep disappointment" with the way drones were depicted in two reports televised by the BBC. The reports, one which aired in April and the second on July 1, focused on the dangers posed by drones operating near commercial airports. The BBC reports that DJI asserts that the reports were based on "hearsay" and say the broadcaster was not true to its public charge to "inform, educate and entertain." The FAA has announced new airspace restrictions effective today, July 11, 2019, on UAS attempting to fly over national security sensitive locations. The FAA has been cooperating with federal partners to address concerns about malicious drone operations by using the agency’s existing authority under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations Section 99.7 (14 CFR § 99.7), Special Security Instructions, to establish UAS specific flight restrictions over select, national security sensitive locations.

Despite the fact we have the largest news staff on the ground at AirVenture, our nearly 30 staffers still aren’t enough to find out what’s ‘really cool’ because what’s really cool is not all about us or what we think, it’s about what the thousands of people think who attend this great adventure known as AirVenture. To help us share what’s really cool to you, we are initiating our first time ‘#OSH19Cool’ program that allows you to tweet us about your opinion of what is ‘so cool.’ No matter what it is, if it’s cool to you, it’s cool to us.

Also: Teenagers Fly Sling 4, Infrastructure Grants, Turtle On The Tarmac, Focus On Aviation Safety EASA has sent a letter to the FAA and Boeing outlining five major requirements the agency says need to be addressed before it will allow the Boeing 737 MAX to return to service in Europe. The issues identified by EASA parallel the FAA's concerns. The FAA said that the agency "confirm(s) the specific matters being raised by EASA but said: “The FAA continues to work closely with other validating civil aviation authorities on our review of Boeing’s certification documentation for the 737 MAX. This process involves regular communications among all parties" but did not confirm the items specified by EASA. Virgin Galactic and Social Capital Hedosophia, have announced their upcoming merger, with SCH owning up to approximately 49% of the company. Upon closing of the transaction, which is expected in the second half of 2019, VG will be introduced as the first and only publicly traded commercial human spaceflight company. VG is a vertically integrated aerospace company specializing in commercial human spaceflight. Using proven and reusable technology, it intends to offer its customers a unique, multi-day experience culminating in a personal spaceflight that includes out-of-seat zero gravity and views of Planet Earth from space. British pilots Mike Roberts and Nicholas Rogers have successfully flown a Piper Malibu to 16 countries in 24 hours to claim a new World Record. Mike, owner of flying club and flight training school Take Flight Aviation, based at Wellesbourne Airfield, Warwickshire and Nicholas Rogers, a B737 Captain based at Birmingham Airport, undertook the challenge on Tuesday, June 25th. They now await formal verification of their feat from Guinness, which currently lists the most countries visited by a fixed wing aircraft in 24 hrs as 11. Mike and Nicholas embarked on the initiative to raise awareness of the ongoing campaign to Save Wellesbourne Airfield, which since 2015 has been under threat from closure from its Landlords.
