Maryland attorney John Taylor challenged the registration requirement based on Section 336, saying that the rule was unlawful as applied to model aircraft. The last two weeks of April have seen the Lancair Uvalde hangar complex bustling with activity. All hands have been hard at work unloading trucks, building storage racks and stowing a variety of molds, tools and fixtures essential for Lancair's return to kit manufacturing. In the w

The company, Aerones, has already demonstrated a number of dramatic heavy lift missions and solutions. Janis Putrams, Aerones' chief engineer, and the drone pilot on this mission, added, "Already in the near future, our technology will save human lives, will help to fight fires and carry out other challenging and significant work. With this project, we show that we are ready for serious tasks in the field of civil defence and sports." AMA has revie
