ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (07.09.20)

Aero Linx: Texas Aviation Association Our goal is to preserve and protect Texas airports and to advance public understanding of general aviation to the citizens of Texas. In 1999 there was a grass roots effort to save Robert Mueller Airport in Austin, Texas. “Friends of Robert Mueller” was formed after it was learned that the city of Austin planned to close the airport and move all commercial and general aviation facilities to the new Austin Bergstrom International Airport. “Friends of Robert Mueller” successfully raised awareness of the impending loss of facilities but could not save Mueller and Austin Executive airports, both of which closed in the summer of 1999.

Mother Of ALL Cubs Proclaimed!

Legend Cub Evolves to the Extreme with MOAC

American Legend Aircraft Company has unveiled its MOAC, a.k.a. the Mother Of All Cubs, a backcountry edition of the Legend Cub. While rooted in the legendary Super Cub, MOAC is a thorough remake and all new construction from the expert hands of American Legend. MOAC incorporates numerous performance enhancing features and is purposely built for backcountry operations. MOAC is the most exciting way to fly low, and slow, while driving performance to the extreme. Horsepower on the Legend Cub has more than doubled with MOAC and current availability of Titan engines from Continental. Up to 208 horsepower (187–195 continuous) results in remarkable takeoff and landing performance on its already strengthened airframe. A Catto fixed pitch, Whirlwind ground adjustable, and Hartzell constant speed are among the many propeller options.

Airborne-Unmanned 06.24.20: Bogus Drone Arrest, Deuce Drone, Kitty Hawk Flyer

Also: Another Starlink Mission, Honeywell Pursues UAM/UAS Mkt, Drone Delivery Canada, Altitude Angel-Inmarsat

In late 2018, during the height of paranoia over unproven drone sightings near Gatwick Airport, which shut things down for days, Sussex's finest carried out an assault with at least a dozen officers on the home of Paul and Elaine Gait -- holding them for 36 hours. Eventually; the two were released -- without charge --  whereupon the pair sued Sussex PD for wrongful arrest and false imprisonment. Now, there has been a resolution to the matter and Sussex PD will have to dig deep into their piggybank -- to the tune of some 200,000 pounds for the settlement and legal fees. Deuce Drone has signed a Demonstration Agreement with Potters Wings Mobile, LLC, a Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee, to conduct a demonstration of the company’s drone delivery system. The demonstration will be conduc

Gogo Inflight Connectivity Now Begins At 3,000 Feet

Delivers Up To 15-20 Minutes Additional Connectivity On Many Flights

Gogo will lower the altitude at which passengers can begin using its connectivity services from 10,000 feet above ground level (AGL) to 3,000 feet AGL for a significant portion of its air-to-ground (ATG) fleet beginning July 20, 2020. By enabling connectivity to begin at 3,000 feet, passengers will receive up to an additional 15-20 minutes of connectivity on many flights. The service will be available on business aviation aircraft equipped with AVANCE L5 or L3 systems, and on commercial aviation regional jets equipped with Gogo ATG-4 and ACPU2 technology. The lower service altitude will enable aircraft that fly shorter flights and spend little to no time above 10,000 feet the opportunity to take advantage of in-flight connectivity for the majority of their flights. Approximately 25% of flights by Gogo equipped regional jets have durations under 60 minutes.
