Also: Textron Drone, Aero-Calendar, Aviation Gateway Park, NASA And FAA, R22 Flashcards, MI Av Program, ArcaBoard

At the time we put this report together, the Solar Impulse 2 had said goodbye to the Silicon Valley and was headed for Phoenix Arizona.

Delta may elect to convert a number of these aircraft into CS300’s at a later date. Based on the list price of the CS100 aircraft, the firm order is valued at approximately $5.6 billion.
