Airborne 09.21.17: Pilot Runs 4 Senate, Seaplane Base Hit, Sonaca 200

Also: Mitchell Airport, AMA, Plane v Elk, Ariane 6, Lakeville Airport, Alaska Airlines

Airshow and test pilot Bob Bishop is launching a run for the United States Senate in 2018. He kicked off his campaign Monday with an event in Tucson which included a static display of a BD-5J campaign plane dubbed "Freedom". Bishop started his business career at the age of 13 while living in Phoenix, AZ. Flying and excellence have been his passions. "Being in service to others is his primary goal. He is a compassionate capitalist, who puts people before profits," the website states. Bishop built several examples of the BD-5J. He purchased 20 kits when they were first introduced, and some are still flying today. Over 300 people in Arizona are reportedly now employed due to his early investing activities. The Tavares Seaplane Base (FA1) and Marina in Lake County, FL was badly damaged by what authorities believe wa

Airborne 09.19.17: Avro Arrow, Virgin Orbit, No Pot Delivery By Drone

Also: NFlightMic Debut, Natl Av Hall Of Fame, Aero-Calendar, MD v FAA, Med Drone Transport, Ryanair, 'Black Sheep'

Kraken Sonar Systems, working with OEX Recovery Group, has discovered a long-sought free-flight Avro Arrow model on the floor of Lake Ontario. The sonar images were captured using Kraken's AquaPix Synthetic Aperture Sonar and revealed to media and project supporters. The sonar and underwater camera images showcase a free-flight Avro Arrow model that was launched over Lake Ontario in the 1950s as part of the Avro Arrow design test program. The new CEO of Virgin Orbit, which was spun off from Virgin Galactic to capture a share of the small satellite launch market, says the company will carry out two missions per month in 2020, despite a delay in the initial flight of the company's launcher. Dan Hart was promoted from company president to CEO in June. Hart  recently said that he had

Airborne-Unmanned 09.19.17: FAA OKs FL Drone Ops, ICAO Registry?, No Pot Drones

Also: FAA Reauthorization, Medical Drone Transport, USMC Quadcopters, Canister Launched UAS, Atlas Dynamics

Airborne, primarily based in Jacksonville, FL is starting to recover from Hurricane Irma, and we can thank the Unmanned community for much of that. After the widespread devastation Hurricane Irma wreaked on Florida, unmanned aircraft have been invaluable in supporting response and recovery efforts here. A wide variety of agencies sought FAA authorization to fly drones in the affected areas. The FAA responded quickly, issuing a total of well over 100 airspace authorizations. This could get ugly... The ICAO is backing an effort to create a single global drone registry with a goal of the adoption of common rules for flying and tracking UAVs. The idea will be discussed at a symposium planned for Sept. 22-23 in Montreal. Stephen Creamer, director of ICAO's Air Navigation Bureau, said that the sin

Airborne 09.18.17: Privatization Fight, NASA’s Cassini, ARAC Backs Rollback

Also: Parrot Mambo FPV, Blue Thunder II, NJ Helo Accident, Kenai Aviation, Mobile ATC Tower, USMC Quadcopters

Five GA organizations are urging transportation leaders in Congress to strip a controversial proposal to  privatize the nation’s ATC system from a pending FAA reauthorization bill. In letters this week, the groups urged that authorization for the FAA, scheduled to expire Sept. 30, be extended at least six months, so as not to distract from the important progress being made on NextGen ATC modernization and needed airport projects. A thrilling epoch in the exploration of our solar system came to a close Friday, as NASA's Cassini spacecraft made a fateful plunge into the atmosphere of Saturn, ending its 13-year tour of the ringed planet. "This is the final chapter of an amazing mission, but it’s also a new beginning,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for N
