After sitting on a runway in Roswell, NM for more than 30 years, a significant piece of Elvis memorabilia is about to go under the auctioneer's gavel. The King's private JetStar airplane will be auctioned on May 27 by GWS Auctions in California. The opening bid is $10,000, but the auction house estimates the value of the airplane, which is missing its engines, at between $2 and $3.5 million. The aircraft is said to be the "lost" jet that Elvis owned with his father, Vernon Presley. Airbus Corporate Jets has launched a private jet version of its new A330neo. Called the ACJ330neo, it will fly 25 passengers 9,400 nm or 20 hours, enough to fly nonstop from Europe to Australia. The ACJ330neo cabin readily accommodates conference/dining areas, a private office, bedroom, bathroom and guest

AMA Drone Report 05.25.17: Court Kills FAA Model Drone Registration, DJI Spark!

Also: AMA Reacts To Court, FAA Reaction, AUVSI Reaction, Kittyhawk Flight Deck APP

Score one for us little guys... As you may have heard, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. has ruled that the FAA violated the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 when it required the registration of model aircraft, including drones, that are flown strictly for recreational purposes, and has vacated the Registration Rule for those aircraft. In Section 336 of the law, Congress specified that the FAA "may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft.” The Act defines “model aircraft” as “an unmanned aircraft that is — (1) capable of sustained flight in the atmosphere; (2) flown within visual line of sight of the person operating the aircraft; and (3) flown for hobby or recreational purposes.” Maryland attorney John Taylor challenged the regist

Airborne-Unmanned 05.23.17: Courts Nix Model Regs, Autonymous Flt, WATT 300

Also: King Schools Update, Kittyhawk APP, Robird And Integrated Drone Solutions, ICAO Drone Tracking

The unmanned community got a bit of a jolt late last week when the US Court of Appeals shot down the FAA’s regulation of recreational unmanned aircraft systems... Industry reaction has been swift... AUVSI has some concerns with the aftermath of the ruling, as President and CEO, Brian Wynne clearly expressed, “AUVSI is disappointed with the decision today by the U.S. Court of Appeals to reject the FAA’s rule for registering recreational unmanned aircraft systems. A UAS registration system is important to promote accountability and responsibility by users of the national airspace, and helps create a culture of safety that deters careless and reckless behavior. We plan to work with Congress on a legislative solution that will ensure continued accountability across the entire aviation

Memorial Day Celebration Turns Bad With Leap Frogs Accident

Navy SEAL Dies After Parachute Malfunction In New Jersey

Normally; Memorial Day is a celebration of those who have fought for the freedoms so many of us take for granted. It's a great day to get out, catch an airshow, a barbecue and hopefully, just take a break and give thanks for those who got us here. And sometimes, its a sad day when one of those celebrations goes badly... as it did Sunday, as part of "Fleet Week." A member of the US Navy's elite parachute team, the Leap Frogs, was pronounced dead Sunday at 1310 after his parachute malfunctioned and he landed in the Hudson River during an aerial demonstration at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Aero-Help Wanted: ANN Needs Good Honest Marketing Staff

ANN/Airborne/Aero-TV Marketing Department Needs Part or Full Time Personnel

E-I-C Note: After months of hints, we've unveiled the next steps in the Airborne programming initiative with massive efforts that now position ANN as a major media partner to two of the most pivotal players in the drone arena... with AMA for the hobby drone market, and with AUVSI representing the Commercial Unmanned technology biz.
