The Lakeland, FL City Commission has given unanimous approval to a plan that will see an Amazon cargo facility built at Lakeland Linder International Airport (KLAL). The 20-year deal gives Amazon a 20-year lease on 47.2 acres at the airport. The company plans to build a seven-jet cargo hangar and bring between 800 to 1,000 jobs to the region. Airport director Gene Conrad called the deal "a home run for us." Amazon will pay some $80,000 per month in rent, and 85 cents per 1,000 pounds of cargo landed at the airport. They will also pay a 3-cent per gallon surcharge on fuel purchased at the airport. The deal includes an option to expand on an additional 62 acres of land, with three renewal options that could extend the deal to 50 years. While Boeing is playing it close to the vest, rumors

Airborne-Unmanned 05.21.19: Rec Drone Changes, Lilium Electric, Int'l Drone Conf

Also: Langley Aerodrome, $9.3 Million For ResponDrone, DJI Drones Comply, Restrictions Near Navy Vessels

The FAA is implementing changes for recreational drone flyers. While recreational flyers may continue to fly below 400 feet in uncontrolled airspace without specific certification or operating authority from the FAA, they are now required to obtain prior authorization from the FAA before flying in controlled airspace around airports. The new requirement to obtain an airspace authorization prior to flying a drone in controlled airspace replaces the old requirement to notify the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower prior to flying within five miles of an airport. Lilium has taken the wraps off its new five-seater air taxi prototype. The Lilium Jet completed its maiden unmanned flight in Germany earlier this month. The full-scale, full-weight prototype is powered by 36 all-el

AMA Drone Report 05.23.19: DAC Appointments Questioned, TFR Violated, AlphaPilot

Also: Changes Coming For ANN/Airborne Drone Coverage, FAA Restrictions, DHS Alert, FAA UAS Symposium

SecTrans Elaine Chao has formally announced new appointments to the FAA Drone Advisory Committee (DAC). The DAC is said to be a broad-based, long-term federal advisory committee that provides the FAA advice on key unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) integration issues by helping to identify challenges and prioritize improvements. The committee helps to create broad support for an overall integration strategy and vision. The list is devoid of working drone pilots or real-world drone service providers... leaving many in the drone community feeling as if their interests are unwelcome and unrepresented. A drone pilot has been charged with violating TFRs over two NFL stadiums in California on November 26, 2017. According to an affidavit attached to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in San Jose, CA, 5

ANN Keeps Pushing Aviation Media (Kicking and Screaming) Further Into The 21st Century...

ANN is, again, radically updating its social media campaign for the upcoming 2019 Oshkosh AirVenture Fly-In.
