Red Bull Air Force Team member Miles Daisher chose Petra, one of the Wonders of the World, as a stunning location to celebrate his 4,300th BASE jump.

The American BASE jumper, who has completed an impressive 7200 skydives, travelled to Jordan intent on becoming the first to BASE jump Petra with amazing scenery at the UNESCO World Heritage site. Setting up his early morning gear, Miles waited for the right conditions to let go with the help of his teammate Andy Farrington. With no tourists in sight and the light yet to reach the top, Andy leaned over the edge on a rope and held Miles’ parachute to secure a static line for him to jump. At 0700 local time, Miles then said “See ya” to Andy and jumped, opening the chute very quickly. Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) celebrated the production of its 100,000th engine this month. The company has 60,000 in-service engines operated by 12,300 customers in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. Its engine families span across general aviation, regional turboprops, business aviation, civil helicopters and auxiliary power units (APUs), and total an impressive 730 million flight hours logged. A little bit of unmanned editorial history is being made today as the first XPONENTIAL Innovation Preview hits cyberspace. ANN and AUVSI are pleased to debut the NextGen Airborne Innovation Preview for AUVSI’s XPONENTIAL 2017 -- this time, adorned with the moniker, the “XPONENTIAL Innovation Preview” (XIP2017!). Our inaugural program with AUVSI is nearly an hour long, and is being webcast to the Unmanned community via Vimeo, YouTube, ANN, and AUVSI -- as well as many other online outlets.
