Airborne 04.17.15: DC Gyroplane Fallout, ICAS Airshow Update, Message To Space

Also: Blue Origin, Flying Cucumber?, BBJ Combi, NetJets Partners w/Ohio State, ExIm Helo Deal, Long-Range Navy UAS

Obviously, the stunt pulled by Douglas Hughes of Ruskin, Florida on Wednesday afternoon of landing his small autogyro on the capitol building lawn did not receive a kind welcome. It appears his attempt to deliver a message protesting campaign financing is lost in the media hype regarding the lack of security in the sky over Washington. Unfortunately, his choice of a protest vehicle also delivers an incredibly bad impression of those of us who enjoy responsible recreational aviation. Airshows are exciting and it can be fun to plan a day trip to a place where one is occurring. Now, The International Council of Airshows, known as ICAS, which is a trade association representing the airshow industry, has posted its 2015 air shows calendar in a new format. Just enter ICAS in your web search engine to go to the ICAS website, and you can access the new calendar features
