Also: Able Flight, Piper M600 Grounding, Avidyne Updates, Pelton Intvw Part 2

No one who goes to Oshkosh remains surprised… for long... at all the amazing things they see at Wittman Field... but reuseable rockets? ANN’s Jim Campbell went over to Blue Origin to see why they came to AirVenture 2017... and got a tour of their crew capsule. Rotax has had its new 915 iS engine in the works for quite a while, but the company says that they are closing in on European and U.S. Certification. ANN’s Tom Patton got an update on the engine from Marc Becker from Rotax.

Authorization requests are subject to long waiting periods and labor-intensive manual approvals, which can add more time to, or entirely halt, the process of commercial UAS operations. No surprise here, folks! When a student pilot and instructor approaching Parafield airport near Adela
