Airborne 05.22.19: RedBull Surprise, NASA Lunar Lander, TBM 940

Also: Pilatus PC-24, GAMA 1Q/19 Sales Report, Sikorsky HH-60W, Honda Expands

Aerobatic pilot and former US Serviceman Aaron Fitzgerald chose the open space of the Hudson River in New York to stun onlookers with a wide range of precision helicopter maneuvers. According to Red Bull, Fitzgerald performed the loops, barrel rolls and dives in front of the Statue of Liberty, Battery Park and alongside the West Side Highway. The pilot chose the unique practice course in preparation for the Memorial Day Weekend’s Bethpage Air Show. The Red Bull helicopter is able to perform the maneuvers through the use of a unique rigid titanium rotor. It allows Fitzgerald to reverse the airflow through the rotor without damage, ensuring he can safely execute the maneuvers.

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).

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

Airborne 05.20.19: Icon Layoffs, Perlan Mission II, Lilium Air Taxi

Also: #HonorTheWASP, NASA Funds Research, Boom Supersonic And Dassault, New FlightSafety CEO

Amid recent reports of yet another sinking of an Icon A5 airframe, a heretofore unsuccessful attempt to raise more capital, and GAMA stats showing that Icon’s promised production targets are not being met, along comes news of company layoffs. An Icon A5 was sunk in Washington state last week after witnesses reported it to have suffered a hard landing... not the first such report. The airframe sunk to wing level and required winching out of the water, for repair. Reported attempts to raise additional capital appear to be unproductive and promises of completing as many as 12-20 airframes per month have definitely not been reached as GAMA noted that their First Quarter production total tallied only 14 aircraft... less than 5 birds per month. Airbus Perlan Mission II has launched its fourth season of ope
