Airborne 02.24.20: New Bell EDAT, Jetman Upgrades, Amateur Rocket Fatality

Also: Artemis Lunar Exploration Program, X-57 Undergoes Tests, Airport Grants, Kuwait v Airbus

A bit of a surprise media leak made the ever-innovative folks at Bell Helicopter take the wraps off one of the more intriguing helicopter configurations we’ve seen in many years. Marrying a Bell 429 to something of a quadcopter-style electric multi-rotor tail assembly, the Bell EDAT (Electrically Distributed Anti-Torque), may offer some exciting new capabilities and efficiencies to the already rugged 429 and other Bell airframes. When the sport aviation world was introduced to ‘Jetman’ inventor Yves Rossy, he showed the world what could happen when you strapped a few small hobby-jet engines to a wing and strapped it to a skydiver. The result was a joy to behold a few years back. But recently, things have taken on a whole new aspect with the continued development of the Jetman program to

Also: King Air 350ERs, Space Camp, Fly Your Pitts To SnF 2020, Blue Origin

The benefits of immersive, small group flight instruction are coming to Oshkosh again in 2020, as the EAA is hosting five Sport Pilot Academy sessions this year, beginning in May. The EAA Sport Pilot Academy offers a direct path to sport pilot certification through a three-week training program that eliminates obstacles such as scheduling conflicts and instructor availability. The program takes participants from the first flight through their sport pilot checkride at EAA facilities. AEA has released its 2019 year-end Avionics Market Report, and total worldwide business and general aviation avionics sales for 2019 amounted to $3,005,839,505, or more than $3 billion as reported by the participating companies.

AMA Drone Report 02.20.20: Aerobatic Drone, Michigan Ruling, AMA v SecTrans

Also: 19000 NPRM Comments, ABA on Drones, RID Flyer, DJI Releases RID Video

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. Writing on the UAV Legal News and Discussion Facebook page, Ryan J. Latourette, Director of Regulatory Affairs at Great Lakes Dron
