Airborne 04.02.20: Sun 'n Fun Cancelled, Elixir Cert, Thrush 2020

Also: NASA Adds Shannon Walker, Gone West: Joe Clark, NASA’s Artemis, Spirit Airlines

The much-feared decision was made late yesterday... there will be no Sun ‘n Fun for 2020.... Another casualty of the global pandemic. Sun 'n Fun president and CEO John Leenhouts posted remarks on their website late Wednesday. "This year, we will serve those same communities by assisting in the defeat of the COVID-19 pandemic. We stand with our local, state, and national leaders in supporting the social distancing and other health practices that will bring this outbreak to a halt as quickly as possible. Unfortunately supporting these initiatives will mean that the 2020 Sun 'n Fun Aerospace Expo will be unable to proceed as originally planned...." EASA has granted CS-23 certification to Elixir Aircraft for its 100 hp VFR aircraft. The certification was awarded March 20 unde

AMA Drone Report 03.26.20: Remote ID RFI, UAV Dodgeball, UAS Reg Extended

Also: Mars Rover Takes Selfie, AMA Working Remotely, Drones Save Koalas, ANN's Infamous April 1st Edition

The FAA has posted a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input from the manned aviation community regarding whether and/or how they can potentially receive and use UAS remote ID information to further enhance safety, by reducing collision risks at lower altitudes. The FAA says the posting is not an RFP. Drones can do many things, but avoiding obstacles is not their strongest suit yet – especially when they move quickly. Although many flying robots are equipped with cameras that can detect obstacles, it typically takes from 20 to 40 milliseconds for the drone to process the image and react. It may seem quick, but it is not enough to avoid a bird or another drone, or even a static obstacle when the drone itself is flying at high speed. This can be a problem when drones are used in unpred

Airborne-Unmanned 03.31.20: BVLOS in Canada, UPS Flight Forward, Continental

Also: ANN’s April 1st Episode, Parrot And DroneLogbook, ‘Pandemic Drone’, AVIUS Air Delivery

MVT Geo-solutions and Iris Automation have been granted the first BVLOS Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) by Transport Canada using only onboard Detect-and-Avoid (DAA). The approval was granted based on the utilization of Iris Automation’s DAA system, called Casia, which provides commercial drones with automated collision avoidance maneuvers. The waiver permits flights within the UAS Center of Excellence’s controlled airspace Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) test range in Alma, Quebec. This is the first BVLOS flight at the location leveraging only onboard DAA for air risk mitigation, and does not require ground-based observers or radar. UPS Flight Forward (UPSFF) will collaborate with German drone-maker Wingcopter to develop a next generation of package deliv

GAO Says FAA Aircraft Registry Process Needs Review

Needs To Better Prevent, Detect, And Respond To Fraud And Abuse Risks In Aircraft Registration

The U.S. aircraft registry, managed by the FAA, maintains information on approximately 300,000 civil aircraft. The FAA issues aircraft registration to individuals and entities that meet eligibility requirements, such as U.S. citizenship or permanent legal residence. Registry fraud and abuse hinders the ability of law-enforcement and safety officials to use the registry to identify aircraft and their owners who might be involved in illicit or unsafe operations.

Also: 737 MAX and CDC, ‘Steam Gauge’ Rating, OneAviation Bids For Cirrus, EAA Water Park

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg has announced that he will start his own commercial space company in an effort to spend the money he has earmarked for his Presidential campaign. But rather than start from scratch, he is making a bid for NASA. Bloomberg joins a small but growing club of billionaires who have made their fortune in the tech industry and then started launching rockets into space. But rather than build something from the ground up, Bloomberg is exploring what it would take to buy NASA from the U.S. Government. The NBAA has announced that Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been added to the roster of business aviation boosters as part of its “No Plane, No Gain” campaign. Sanders, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, has made extensive use of corporate jets in his run

The FAA has released a Safety Alert For Operators (SAFO) regarding the potential effects of parking overflow aircraft in excess of airport capacity.
