Airborne 08.13.18: Bizarre Q400 Theft, Female Hurricane Hunters, One Week Wonder

Also: Colorado Reservists, Flight Examiner Bribe Attempt, Boeing 737 Logjam, World Helicopter Day

An airport worker, first identified as a mechanic, and then as a ramp agent, apparently took unauthorized possession of a Horizon Air Q400 twin turboprop, powered it up, and somehow took off without permission from Sea-Tac Airport late Friday night. There are extensive questions (and few answers) as to how he took control, got the aircraft powered up, and then gained access to a runway to engage in a takeoff -- and how much supervision/surveillance surrounded the airplane. Throughout the flight, the only person on board, Richard Russell, engaged in sightseeing and radical maneuvers that included rolls and inverted flight. Russell admitted that much of his flight experience came from flight simulator gaming. A recent flight by a NOAA Gulfstream IV Hurricane Hunter aircraft to Hawaii is thought to be th

Also: Cyberhawk, Oceans Unmanned, VerdeGo Aero, Swift Engineering

A pioneering commercial BVLOS delivery by drone brought ice cream to a two-year-old in a demonstration conducted in Virginia by Alphabet's Wing. The delivery flight covered 1.4 miles, and arrived within eight minutes from the time the order was completed by the mom of the lucky toddler. It was conducted under new rules that allow some states and other government entities to experiment with BVLOS drone flights put in place last year. Among those in attendance at the demonstration was Earl Lawrence, director of the FAA's UAS Integration Office. “You did see something historic today,” Lawrence said. “They can share the fact that the U.S. does have package delivery in its future.” dvancements in unmanned technology and the possibility that actual pilots may be minimized, as a result, is creating some turbulence a

AMA Drone Report 08.09.18: UK Kid/Drone Ban?, FAI Int'l, UAV 'Attack' Fallout?

Also: FAA: NO Drones Near Wildfires, Solar-Powered Record, Louisiana UAVs, Drone Center Of Excellence

The U.K. has new drone rules under consideration that would ban people under 18 years old from owning a drone weighing more than 250 grams... or 0.55 pounds. The proposal could allow youngsters to fly heavier drones under adult supervision if the aircraft is owned by and registered to an older person. The restriction is pegged to the age at which an insurance policy can be issued. Other suggestions in the proposed bill that is targeted for implementation later this year are online safety tests and required registration for drones over 250 grams, as is required in the US. FAI, the World Air Sports Federation, has released a detailed conference program for the FAI International Drones Conference and Expo 2018. Top drone experts from around the globe will present the latest developments and technolog
