Airborne 04.22.19: Cirrus Emergency AD, Indoor Skydiving, Praetor 600

Also: CFI PROficiency Initiative, Damaged Falcon Heavy Core, Enhanced MD 969, ICAO’s 193rd Member

To the surprise of few who have chronicled the many issues troubling the Cirrus SF50 program, the FAA has issued an emergency AD for SF50 Vision Jets following multiple reports of the stall warning and protection system (SWPS) or Electronic Stability & Protection (ESP) System engaging when not appropriate. The SWPS or ESP systems may engage even when sufficient airspeed and proper angle of attack (AOA) exists for normal flight. This AD requires replacing the AOA sensors with improved AOA sensors, before further flight. Some 300 world-class indoor skydivers from 31 different countries are participating the third edition of the FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championships, which kicked off April 17 in the French city of Lille. Through this past weekend, they were fighting it out for a place on the

Airborne-Unmanned 04.23.19: AUVSI Comments, Parrot ANAFI Thermal, Rega Drone

Also: MetaVista World Record, Family Drone Festival, Drone Workforce Solutions, Intelligent Energy

AUVSI says the FAA's proposed rules for operating sUAS over people and for safe and secure small UAS operations are too restrictive and do not consider the safety or societal benefits of the technology. In comments submitted to the FAA, AUVSI also urges the agency to adopt rules for flying UAS at night and requiring the use of remote identification. “The FAA has taken a prescriptive approach to these two proposed regulations, which are overly conservative and too restrictive,” said Brian Wynne, president and CEO of AUVSI. “Existing data and emerging UAS capabilities and applications should instead guide rulemaking and help advance the commercial use of unmanned systems.” Parrot has launched ANAFI Thermal: a new drone capable of capturing both live and recorded 4K HD video and

AMA Drone Report 04.18.19: Flt Over People, Not Drone Fault, FAA ANPRM

Also: Gatwick Drone 'Chaos', Fenway Park Foolishness, Utah Legislature, Parrot ANAFI Thermal

AMA has responded to the FAA's NPRM on the Operation of sUAS Over People. Overall, the AMA believes the proposed rulemakings on flying over people and night flying are a step toward opening the airspace for more commercial unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operators. For model aircraft hobbyists, however, they do not anticipate these rules will have a significant impact on their existing guidelines for safe and responsible operation. "...For years, our National Model Aircraft Safety Code has been recognized by Congress, as well as state legislatures, as a safe and effective means of managing the model aircraft community. Our members know where, when and how to fly safely and they do not present a risk to the airspace," the AMA commented. On March 29, 2018, a pilot and passenger departed Thames Aerodrome in N

Airborne 04.01.19: ANN's Infamous April 1st Episode! Drone Skeet, ADS-B Boots...

Also: AOPA Hacking EAA Drone Show?, Campbell Joins SnF Board, Jet Teams Go Retro, Methane-Power,

YUP... its THAT time of year again! This is ANN's infamous April First Episode... strap in, and get ready to be fooled, bamboozled and led astray! Drone Skeet has been selected as a demonstration sport for the 2028 Summer Olympics, which will be held in Los Angeles, CA. Teams will consist of shooters and pilots competing in timed rounds. Each team will have 5 minutes to shoot down as many of the opposing team's drones as it can, then they will switch sides and the other team will have an opportunity to shoot. At the end of 6 rounds, the team which has downed the most drones will be declared the winner. Partial credit will be awarded for drones that are damaged but can still fly. SpaceX engineers are scrambling to resolve a possible orbital conflict 500 miles above the surface of Mars. W

ANNouncement: Now Accepting Applications For Oshkosh 2019 Stringers!!!

An Amazing Experience Awaits The Chosen Few...

E-I-C Note: There's very little we can say yet, but there is a reason why this may be a TRULY exciting year to throw in with ANN to cover the extraordinary event that is OSHKOSH. Like in years past, we have something up our sleeves -- actually SEVERAL big somethings -- BUT, this year, they could be some of the biggest upgrades/surprises we've pulled off yet -- so we're going to be changing quite a few things about how we cover Oshkosh, as a result. IF YOU want to be a part of this unique adventure, speak up NOW, rather than later, because we're going to looking for the best volunteer folks we can find and are planning to do so ASAP. You've been warned (grin)....
