Airborne 08.15.17: Lycoming AD, Reno Drone Racing!, Santa Monica NIMBYs

Also: Icon A5 Accident, Aero-Calendar, Land Remote Sensing, Storm Aviation, Frontier, World Helicopter Day, Hubble

The FAA has issued an Airworthiness Directive (AD) for the connecting rods in certain models of Lycoming engines, and asked for comments on the AD (2017-16-11). The AD requires an inspection of connecting rods and replacement of affected connecting rod small end bushings. It was prompted by several reports of connecting rod failures resulting in uncontained engine failure and in-flight shutdowns (IFSDs). The FAA says it has received 5 reports of uncontained engine failures and IFSDs due to failed connecting rods. The Reno Air Racing Association has signed an agreement with MultiGP Drone Racing League to host the National Drone Racing Championship during this year’s National Championship Air Races. The drone racing championship will be held in the Air Races on-site drone zone. &l

Airborne 08.14.17: Concorde Return?, KSMO RWY Plans, DC Overflights

Also: San Mateo $$, Verhees Delta, Midwest Express, BizAv Activity, Cal Fire, AAR Ldg Gear, jetAVIVA

The Concorde SST was retired in 2003 by British Airways and Air France after the plane's popularity waned following an accident in 2000 in Paris. But there are some who hope to see the airplane fly again, and they have been engaged in a years-long fundraising effort to make that happen. Now, Club Concorde says it has raised the $156 million to acquire one of the retired aircraft and bring it back to flight status both for private charters and air shows. The plans for the destruction of the Santa Monica airport continue. The Santa Monica City Council approved a Guaranteed Maximum Price of $3,517,320 and contract to shorten the runway at Santa Monica Airport in alignment with our Consent Decree with the Federal Aviation Administration. Shortening the runway to 3,500 feet will reduce jet traffic, "bri
