Airborne 01.14.19: Air Race Classic, Student In Distress, AirCam Bahamas

Also: AvGroups Urge End To Shutdown, USAF Accepts KC-46A, Hubble Images, New Airport for Knoxville?

Registration is open for the 43rd Air Race Classic (ARC), the annual all-women cross-country airplane race. More than 100 women pilots from around the world are expected to compete in this year's ARC, which begins Tuesday, June 18 in Jackson, Tennessee, and ends Friday, June 21 in Welland, Ontario. The oldest race of its kind in the United States, the ARC traces its roots to the 1929 Women's Air Derby, in which Amelia Earhart and 19 other daring female pilots raced from Santa Monica, California, to Cleveland, Ohio. That contest, aka the Powder Puff Derby, marked the beginning of women's airplane racing in the United States. On the morning of August 30, ATC Specialist Ken Stanley was working in the Tower at Ormond Beach Municipal Airport (KOMN) when he noted a student pilot getting ready to land on t

AMA has received a lot of questions regarding FAA registration requirements. On December 12, 2017, Congress reinstated FAA registration for all unmanned aircraft weighing over .55 lbs. For those that registered before then, the FAA extended their expiration date to December 12, 2020. Drones are exciting new technology that have the potential to enhance public safety and save lives, b

Also: Fairfax Public Safety UAS, First Responder Scholarship, DeFazio Confirmed, Mid-Michigan College

The FAA is set to authorize as many as eight industry-financed projects to examine various options for airborne drone identification, according to a notice published in December in the Federal Register. A report from the Wall Street Journal indicates that the goal of the program is to "verify technologies and provide real-world data to hasten broader regulatory steps aimed at significantly expanding commercial uses of unmanned aircraft." The inability of authorities to identify and track drones has been a major hurdle to the integration of UAVs into the National Airspace. The SAFIR consortium, a group of 13 public and private organisations, has been selected by Single European Sky ATM Research Joint Undertaking (SESAR JU) to demonstrate integrated Drone Traffic Management for a broad range of dron
