Also: USCG Awards Air Medal, Liberty University Aviation Program, Sen. Moran, UAL HQ

No one has to tell you that the cost of ‘just plane flying’ keeps getting greater... and greater. And the cost of airplane ownership has done likewise. However; a new offering from James Wiebe of Belite fame may be just the thing that allows flyers to find an affordable way back into the aviation game. The Chipper SS is a Single Seat Aircraft that can be operated as a Part 103 Ultralight or as an Experimental  airplane. Wiebe reports that it will be easy to build, and economically priced. The design features a 28 mph stall speed with a Max cruise of 62 mph. With five gallons of fuel, the bird’s gross weight is tallied at 484 pounds.

Also: AUVSI Startup Showdown, senseFly eBee X, Airbus' Skyways Drone, Airborne Programming!

As State Farm launched their new drone program to better assist customers after storm damage, they needed to recruit and train employees to become drone pilots. Jessica Hodge, Joy Hillsman-Caffie and Shelley Cole are three of the six drone pilots for State Farm who are women. Her selection came as a shock to State Farm claims specialist, Jessica. Jessica explained that, “I consider myself an early adopter of the technology. State Farm is one of the first insurance companies to use drones and I’m one of the first drone pilots for State Farm. It’s cool to be on the cutting edge.” AirMap and Honeywell are developing a cost-effective drone tracking solution to provide airspace safety authorities with situational awareness of manned and unmanned aircraft operations within

Airborne 03.15.19: 737 MAX Reaction, JetPack Aviation, Aviation Rideshare $$$

Also: Next FAA Administrator?, Costin Airport Acquired, Atlas Air Accident, CA Paraglider Accident

The industry is weighing in on the FAA's decision to ground the domestic fleet of Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 airplanes following the accident in Ethiopia last weekend which fatally injured all 157 people on board the airplane. Boeing said in a statement that it continues to have full confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX.

*’What Would Bob Do?’

‘If You Want To Know Someone’s Heart…You Have To Know What Breaks It.’ (Attributed to part of a conversation with George HW Bush, 41st President of the United States) Commentary/Opinion/Analysis By ANN CEO/Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell There is this guy… a kind soul… named George Conn.
