Airbus is presenting a development study for an enhanced A380, the “A380plus”. The study includes aerodynamic improvements in particular new, large winglets and other wing refinements that allow for up to 4% fuel savings. Added to an optimized A380 maintenance program and enhanced cabin features, the overall benefit is a 13% cost per seat reduction versus today’s A380. The new winglets measure approximately 15 feet in height (an uplet of 11 feet, and a downlet of 4 feet). It is designed to improve aerodynamics and reduce drag. The FAA has granted Lycoming Engines a 200 hour extension to the TBO on certain engine models. Lycoming requested a global Alternate Method of Compliance to AD 2010-19-01 from the FAA to allow operators to use the time periods specified in

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

AMA Drone Report 06.15.17: AMA Museum-1999 Draganflyer, FPV Fest, Drone-Betting?

Also: AMA Outreach, Drone Theft, Dumb Drone Regs--In NJ, AMA Drone Report -- Help Wanted

It’s never too late to start documenting history... even when it comes to topics like the comparatively young hobby drone world. AMA’s Museum staff, who oversee what ANN CEO Jim Campbell calls, “one of the seven wonders of the aeronautical world...” is more than prepared to make sure that history is protected and has already reached out to start documenting the beginnings of the drone revolution. In the April 2017 issue of Model Aviation, the museum requested the donation of three Draganflyer products.  Thankfully, one of them, the Draganflyer I, dating from 1999, was donated by Daniel “Super Dan” Fetterly. FPV Pilots are invited to join in the fun, with Ready Made RC, at the AMA headquarters in Muncie, IN, this weekend, June 16th-18th! If you are familiar with the wond
