Airborne-Unmanned 11.14.17: Drone Registration, AT&T's Flying COW, Pilot Charged

Also: Boeing Completes Acquisition, Drones For LAFD, DJI Seeks Transport Canada’s Help, Uber and NASA

A defense authorization bill that includes a return to civilian drone registration has been approved by a House/Senate conference committee, and is expected to be passed by both chambers and signed by President Trump. The language is included in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018. It would again require the registration of drones weighing more than about half a pound with the federal government. AUVSI president and CEO Brian Wynne has expressed support for the policy, saying a drone registration system "promotes responsibility by all users of the national airspace." This COW might not be able to jump over the Moon, but it is helping residents of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico make phone calls. COW is an acronym for Cell On Wings, It is a helicopter drone that is being used by AT&a

Airborne 11.13.17: AK Aero-Taxes, T-50A Milestone, Turbo Bonanza AD

Also: Drone Registration-Part 2, Juneyao Airlines, Space Needle Drone Bust, Canadian Airlines v St. Maarten

Airplanes are vital to Alaska.... there are six times as many pilots per capita, and 16 times as many airplanes per capita, as compared to the rest of the US... BUT Governor Walker (I) wants to make it more expensive to fly there. The Governor has proposed a state airplane registration system that would be used to create a database for instituting an airplane tax. The tax would be $150 on any private plane, single engine, twin, reciprocating or turboprop, and $250 on any commercial aircraft of any size. Walker has openly called the tax a user fee. Lockheed Martin test pilot Mark "Red" Ward reached a new milestone by becoming the first pilot to reach 100 flight hours in the T-50A, their offering for the USAF's Advanced Pilot Training (APT) competition. Ward passed the 100-hour mark shortly af

Airborne 11.10.17: TruTrak Vizion, AeroShell's McNeely, Wittman Airport

Also: Gone West-Richard Gordon, StandardAero Buys Vector Aerospace, Alaska Airlines, Piper ADs

Possibly one of the best deals in general aviation, TruTrak is now delivering both Cessna 172 and Cessna 177 Vizion autopilot systems. AND... the company says the price is the same as when the system was announced at AirVenture 2017 - just $5000. This price includes pretty much everything needed to complete installation of the Vizion autopilot in a 172 or 177, autopilot controller, roll servo, pitch servo, mounting brackets, pushrods, AND hardware, even the wiring harness.  Add in the affordably-priced STC from EAA for $100 and pilots can install a two-axis autopilot that will not only make cross-country trips easier, but safer too. As the 2017 Stuart Air Show closed at Witham Field in Florida on November 5th, aviation enthusiasts bid a fond farewell to AeroShell Aerobatic Team member, Gene McNeely,
