Airborne 01.21.19: SubSonex Upgraded!, Aero Club Of Atlanta, Snow v Citation

Also: Aerocor-Apex Aviation, Sikorsky Presents $ To Make-A-Wish, Chinese Av Mkt, JetBlue Donating

One of the coolest little sportplanes to ever work its way out of the feverish and somewhat convoluted imagination of Sonex Boss, John Monnett, is the SubSonex -- a single-seat kitjet powered by a small jet turbine engine... resulting in an aerobatic bird that is about as unique as anything currently offered. However; Sonex has upped the ante and announced a number of upgrades for their SubSonex kitjet program. Three new kit features are now included under current SubSonex pricing, and upgrade kits are available to existing customers. And... another aviation program gets hit by the government shutdown... with the industry wondering just how much damage will be done by the reduced staffing levels in most facets of aviation and aerospace government programs.

AUVSI tells us that the much anticipated FAA UAS Symposium 2019 that was scheduled to take place in February is being postponed due to the government shutdown. The new conference dates will be announced after furloughed FAA employees return to work. Brian Wynne, president and CEO of AUVSI, issued the following statement regarding the FAA’s notice of proposed rulemaking on small UAS operations over people and the advanced notice of proposed rulemaking on the safe and secure operations of small UAS: "These FAA rulemakings will help advance the commercial UAS industry beyond the current regu

Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, has announced Canada’s new rules for remotely piloted aircraft systems. The new rules, which will come into force on June 1, 2019, apply to all drone pilots flying drones between 250 grams and 25 kilograms that are operated within the drone pilot’s visual-line-of-sight, regardless of whether the drone is flown for fun, work or research. The new simplified rules reflect significant consultations with Canadians and the industry. The final regulations introduce two main categories of drone operation: basic and advanced. The categories are based on distance from bystanders and airspace rules. State Farm has reportedly been granted the first national waiver to any company in the U.S. by the FAA. The national waiver allows State Farm to conduct drone operat
