Also: Swedish Drone Ban Lifted, Rocky Mountain Hobby-Expo, Drone Shark Detection, Kittyhawk DJI Sync 2.0

Recent reports about a midair collision between a jet and a drone have been mis-stated or based on pretty tenuous detail. Worse; Canada’s Marc Garneau, their Minister of Transport has jumped all over the story, even issuing a press release long before any real detail has emerged. What do we know? On 12 October 2017, a Skyjet Beech King Air A100 (a turbo prop... NOT a jet) was on an IFR flight to the Jean Lesage International Airport in Québec City, Quebec with 8 souls on board. The aircraft was approaching runway 24 and had just passed the final approach fix when the crew claims to have seen a drone at the extremity of the left wing.

Airbus SE and Bombardier are to become partners on the C Series aircraft program according to an agreement signed Monday.

Under the agreement, Airbus will provide procurement, sales and marketing, and customer support expertise to the C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP). Upon completion, Airbus will acquire a 50.01% interest in CSALP. Bombardier and Investissement Québec (IQ) will own approximately 31% and 19% respectively.
