Airborne 06.22.17: GA v House ATC Bill, 737 MAX 10, Solar Impulse 2 Anniversary

Also: ATC Opposition, Want to Be An Aero-Stringer?, CAP's Next CEO, Hypersonic Jet, Spring Airlines, Leonardo, 505 Jet Ranger X

Following Wednesday’s release of the language proposed by the US House of Representatives, a consortium of general aviation groups has provided united opposition to the legislation introduced by Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pennsylvania). The latest documentation includes provisions, again, to turn the nation's air traffic control infrastructure and services to a privatized, non-profit board dominated by commercial aviation interests. The joint statement came from EAA, AOPA, NBAA, NATA, GAMA, and HAI. Boeing has announced the launch of the 737 MAX 10 as the newest member of the 737 MAX family at the 2017 Paris Air Show. The planemaker says the 737 MAX 10 will have the lowest seat-mile cost of any single-aisle airplane ever produced. The airplane gained more than 240 orders

AMA Drone Report 06.22.17: FAA Reauthorization, Rotor Riot Int'l, DRL on ESPN

Also: Drones at Oshkosh!, Drone Regulatory Effort, AMA Drone Report-Help Wanted, Aero-TV: MultiGP Drone Racing

The House of Representatives has published initial language to reauthorize funding for the FAA. A move to privatize the ATC system is causing widespread concern among aviation groups and pilots nationwide. Our friend, Jonathan Rupprecht has furnished a few observations of interest to the drone community. The new language ‘upholds the protections of Section 336 regarding model aircraft flyers but DOES allow the FAA to create a registration system for model aircraft.’ The two largest names in the FPV culture are joining forces! MultiGP and Rotor Riot are combining forces to make sure the 2017 International Open is an event that gets chiseled in FPV history. MultiGP says this inaugural Rotor Riot themed version of the MultiGP International Open is your best opportunity to catch a

Airborne-Unmanned 06.20.17: UAS Orgs v Bad Regs, Anti-Collision, Drone Race $$

Also: Solar-Powered UAS, NK Drone, UAS Survey, Brian Wynne Interview

The team at AUVSI is staying plenty busy as they and 13 other organizations authored a letter to members of Congress urging them to consider the potential consequences for the UAS industry if legislation was enacted affecting the federal sovereignty of the airspace. One of the technologies on display at the Paris Airshow this week seeks to deal with anti-collision programs to separate UAVs form manned vehicles. To integrate UAVs into the national airspace, the National Research Council of Canada has developed the Passive Intelligent Collision Avoidance Sensor (PICAS) system, allowing UAS to detect oncoming aircraft more accurately than ever before. PICAS allows UAS to detect aircraft that are not able to communicate their position to other aircraft. And... the big money deals just keep rolling in... The Drone Racing League has ju

NASA And Honeywell Aim To Bring Supersonic Flight To The 'Masses'

New Technology Will Help Mitigate Sonic Booms Over Populated Areas

NASA and Honeywell have completed a two-year test to determine the most effective way to show pilots flying supersonic jets where people on the ground may hear sonic booms, potentially eliminating one of the primary barriers to the broad adoption of supersonic flight. The testing program successfully integrates predictive software and display technology into business jet cockpits, and demonstrated how pilots can see where, and how, sonic booms would affect the population on the ground.
