Airborne 05.20.19: Icon Layoffs, Perlan Mission II, Lilium Air Taxi

Also: #HonorTheWASP, NASA Funds Research, Boom Supersonic And Dassault, New FlightSafety CEO

Amid recent reports of yet another sinking of an Icon A5 airframe, a heretofore unsuccessful attempt to raise more capital, and GAMA stats showing that Icon’s promised production targets are not being met, along comes news of company layoffs. An Icon A5 was sunk in Washington state last week after witnesses reported it to have suffered a hard landing... not the first such report. The airframe sunk to wing level and required winching out of the water, for repair. Reported attempts to raise additional capital appear to be unproductive and promises of completing as many as 12-20 airframes per month have definitely not been reached as GAMA noted that their First Quarter production total tallied only 14 aircraft... less than 5 birds per month. Airbus Perlan Mission II has launched its fourth season of ope

Airborne-Unmanned 05.14.19: Unlawful Drone Demo?, UAS Detection, Schiebel Wins

Also: UK Considers Drone Fee, Drone Finds Radioactivity, 500th Student Trained, Delair UX11 UAV

Questions have arisen over the use of anti-drone jamming technology during the recent Ultra Music Festival in south Florida. A company called "Rational Point" said that it, along with its partners Vigilant Drone Defense and Pemica provided counter-UAV services to protect the Ultra Music Festival from ‘unauthorized’ drones. The company claims they were able to "intercept a total of 61 drones that were attempting to enter the secure airspace above the festival. All 61 drones that were intercepted were visually confirmed intercepts. During our three days of service, no unauthorized drones were able to penetrate the secure airspace protecting the Ultra Music Festival." Vigilant hasn't defined what was unauthorized, and the FAA says that they did not give them such authority. However, ANN has lea

AMA Drone Report 05.16.19: FAA Memorandum, Spark 2?, Illegal Anti-Drone Ops?

Also: FAA UAS Symposium, Alpha Electro, Osmo Action Camera, Hummingbird Robot

The net has been awash with copies of a memorandum that may foretell the future of the UAS community. This memorandum was intended as FAA guidance to educate air traffic control facilities (ATC) on best methods to respond to recreational flyers seeking authorization, not as guidance to recreational operators. Recent legislation under Section 349 (c) states operators in controlled airspace will be required to seek authorization from towered airports, unless flying from a charted flying site. AMA successfully championed that if you are flying at an AMA flying field or sanctioned event, you can continue flying by following AMA’s safety program and within the existing agreements your club or contest director has with nearby airports. DJI introduced the Spark drone back in 2017, and a follow-on aircraft may be among the

ANN Keeps Pushing Aviation Media (Kicking and Screaming) Further Into The 21st Century...

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)....
