Also: Airborne at XPONENTIAL, AMA On Mil-Airspace, Canadian Drones, AMA Legislative Efforts

With an appearance not all that different than many of the multi-copters we’re all flying these days, Google’s Larry Page, has entered the aviation arena with a personal flying machine that is supposed to operate in the 'ultralight' category. The 'Kitty Hawk Flyer' is an all-electric aircraft. Page's effort claims the aircraft to be "safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes. We publicly revealed the working prototype in April 2017. The official Flyer will be available by the end of the year." Racing is all the rage among the drone community, of late... an

Airborne 04.25.17: Vietnam Helicopter Museum, Gleim Virtual Cockpit, Av Police

Also: Airport Fight, Aero-Calendar, H145, A321neo, Emirates, Airspace Workshops, Jeppesen

A claim of discrimination has been filed against Contra Costa County, CA by the Vietnam Helicopter Museum, which alleges that the county has discriminated by repeatedly blocking attempts to lease a hangar at Buchanan Field. Pacific States Aviation, the Conco Companies, and the museum, first attempted to rent a 39,000 square-foot hangar in December. The museum ranked third in the process. They filed an informal complaint with the FAA in January when the county refused a 2015 request by the former hangar tenant to transfer ownership of the hangar and assign the lease to the museum. Gleim Aviation has released the Gleim Virtual Cockpit. The all-in-one simulator platform, when used in conjunction with the Gleim X-Plane Flight Training Course, offers a home simulator platform with a f
