Airborne 03.23.15: Amazon Gets UAV OK, 10K ADS-B Equipped A/C, CS100 FTV5 Flies!

Also: White House UAV Update, AVW: Glider Looping, Rockwell Collins, UAV v News Helis, ERAU Award, Leonov's Spacewalk Remembered

The FAA has issued an experimental airworthiness certificate to an Amazon Logistics unmanned aircraft design that the company will use for research and development and crew training. Much like any experimental airworthiness certificate, it comes with some restrictions. All flight operations must be conducted at 400 feet or below during daylight hours in visual meteorological conditions. The UAS must always remain within visual line-of-sight of the pilot and observer, and the pilot actually flying the aircraft must have at least a private pilot’s certificate and current medical certification. The march towards the overhaul of the national airspace navigation system continues as the General Aviation Manufacturers Association relayed an announcement that ADS-B equipment is no

Also: MAGIC CARPET, Hart Sworn, Battery Burns, IAM Seeks Union Rep At Boeing's SC, New Hartzell Service Ctr

The Honda Aero HF120 turbofan engine that powers the HondaJet and other customers' aircraft has been issued a PART 21 Production Certificate from the FAA. Initial production of the HF120 engines took place at GE's Lynn facility in Massachusetts. At the end of 2014, Honda Aero started assembly of the HF120 under GE Honda Aero Engines Type Certification and with FAA oversight. Here is another example of general aviation serving a community that needs it the most. The Veterans Airlift Command is a volunteer organization that coordinates a U.S. network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots to provide free air transportation to post-9/11 combat-wounded veterans and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes.

Counting Down! ANN's Infamous April 1st Edition's Just Around The Corner!

Get Your Wacky Ideas In NOW!

ANN E-I-C Note: Folks... we gotta warn you... based on all the nonsense we've had to endure in 2014-2015 (which we are duty-bound to lampoon), this may be one of our best year's yet... and as always... NO ONE IS SAFE. We're going to have some fun with EVERYONE... the FAA, USA Today, Congress, TSA, EAA, AOPA, Sun 'n Fun, Dale Klapmeier, every UAV ever flown, every UAV-phobe in the known universe, every self-appointed aviation expert who can't spell aileron, the USAF, Cessna, Cirrus, NASA, you name it. If you want to be a part of the foolishness, get your ideas and submissions into us ASAP! Time is fast ticking down to a date the entire ANN staff looks forward to every year. See, each April 1st, we have a problem getting our stories straight... we make things up, we get silly, we exaggerate and lampoon. In other words, we act weirder than the loons who run the FAA, Congress, Cirrus, and/or the TSA... and in this group, that's really saying something. (At least we get group rates on appropriate profess

ANN Is Hiring! Videographers Needed For Airborne Unlimited Program Staff

Videographer/Reporters Needed For Airborne Unlimited Program Expansion

Aero-News and Airborne are expanding--and innovating! And we're seeking additional on-air video journalist(s) to assist us with our Feature and Scheduled programming. These are autonomous `one man/woman band` positions where you must be as comfortable behind the camera as in front of it. You will be responsible for presenting aviation/aerospace related news stories on camera while often handling all audio, video and lighting as well as editing the final product. The ideal candidate will be an experienced videographer and editor, with prior on-air experience. Being knowledgeable of the Aviation Industry is highly recommended (and will need to be learned, regardless).
