Courtesy Aircraft of Rockford, IL announced at the National Warbird Operators Conference a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: A three-aircraft Harrier package has been placed on the market.

PHASA-35, a 115-foot wingspan solar-electric aircraft, has successfully completed its maiden flight. PHASA-35 has been designed, built and now flown in less than two years.

A drone capable of carrying a person and performing aerobatics has been built and flown by Drone Champions AG as a way to promote its Drone Champions League video game. The DCL has released a video of the drone flying in Croatia. While the aircraft is designed to carry a person, that person is not the pilot. The aircraft is intended to be flown from the ground. The so-called "Big Drone" is built around an all-carbon aerodynamically-faired frame with six arms supporting two coaxial rotors for a total of 12 rotors. After more than a year in the making, the challenge to a drone ordinance passed in Genesee County, Michigan has resulted in what is being described as "a huge win" for drone operators.
