Airborne 07.13.18: Tiny Twin at OSH, New Trig Radios, Noise Nonsense

Also: Whirly-Girls International, Aeolus Launch, Davenport IA Airport Accident, $150K Civil Penalty

Over the years, ANN’s Jim Campbell has often remarked about a fondness for the smallest twin-engine aircraft he ever flew and the half-a dozen varieties that he had the chance to test. This year, a Colomban CriCri, the smallest twin-engine manned aircraft in the world, will take off from the top of a moving Ford Explorer as part of the air show on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday night. The CriCri, designed by French engineer Michel Colomban in the early 1970s, will be flown by Lionel Adroit of Team Cricri. Lucie Chapirot-Sarda and Daniel Pratviel, will be in the Ford Explorer launch groundcraft. Trig Avionics has announced plans for a future Nav/Com product family, for early 2019 -- the newly designed TX56 Nav/Com. There is an introductory list price of $3,195 for the TX56A, the

AMA Drone Report 07.12.18: Drone Reg. Warning, Taylor v FAA, OSH DroneShow

Also: Drone Advisory Committee, OH Town Drone Regs, Drone Umbrella, AirVenture Schedule Update

The FAA is warning drone owners – especially hobbyists -- about people offering to “help” register their drones with the agency. The FAA Drone Zone is all you need – and it costs only $5.00. There are a number of entities that offer to help drone owners and operators file an application for a registration number. Some attempt to mimic the look of the FAA’s website with similar graphic designs and some even use the FAA logo to allegedly suggest they are somehow “approved” by the agency. They aren’t – and you could be wasting your money. The D.C. Court of Appeals has denied a petition for review of the FAA's rules concerning the registration of model aircraft under its drone registration rules. Attorney John Taylor had challenged the registration of mod

Details About ANN’s NEW Social Media Program (SMP) For Oshkosh 2018!

ANN Pushes Aviation Media Further Into The 21st Century...

ANN is radically updating its social media campaign for the upcoming 2018 Oshkosh AirVenture Fly-In. This is just the latest step in a series of massive upgrades we're making as Aero-News becomes the 'Aero-Verse.' This program will concentrate on the three most persuasive forms of social media outreach -- short succinct messaging, compelling high-resolution still photography, and carefully formatted HD video. Our staff of journalists will be beating up Wittman Field all week long looking for suitable subjects for this effort, and you’re welcome to help us make sure that YOU don't get left out. You are welcome to text suggestions to 863-860-5790, or email news@aero-news.net with your suggestions. You can also Skype us directly at AERONEWSNET.

One More Reason To Celebrate Oshkosh -- ANN To Select Best Sportplanes of 2018!

In An Age Clouded By Icon's Flim-Flammery, We Want To Suggest Companies/Planes We HONESTLY Believe You Should Trust As we have in year's past... ANN is dusting off one of our reader's favorite programs -- our "Flyer's Dozen" of the best SportPlanes and and companies we believe deserve your consideration for an airplane of your own. The SportPlane business has been through some rough times these last few years as a few companies let us down... badly... Icon Aircraft, chief amongst them. And face it, it didn't help that the economy was not in the best shape (until recently) and the struggle to enjoy aviation hasn't gotten any easier. So... here's the deal... we're going to be putting together profiles of all the likely suspects, and we want YOUR input as to what companies and airframes deserve top honors this year. Unlike some other so-called awards, our 'Best of Breed' is initially assembled by experts with a true passion for sport aviation and boast tremendous long-term expertise in the field... but also and unlike other such programs;

For the first time in North America, a drone light show will be part of an air show when EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 presents up to 100 lighted drones in flight during night air shows on July 25 and 28. Great Lakes Drone Company, based in Watervliet, Michigan, will be flying their drones and is one of just two U.S. companies authorized by the FAA for such displays. EAA’s Dave Chaimson notes that, “What makes this event especially memorable are the intricate maneuvers that are capable by up to 100 synchronized drones, highlighting the possibilities of safe and responsible drone flying. People come to AirVenture to see aerial excitement not seen anywhere else, and these performances certainly continue that tradition.” Scientific study of the evolution of the southern end of the S

Aero-News AirVenture Update: This Is So Cool! #OSH18COOL

We Need YOUR Help To Find AND Celebrate The Coolest Stuff At EAA AirVenture 2018, #OSH18COOL

Stuff that’s new is cool… we get it… that’s why we’re bringing our AirVenture Innovation Preview webcast to you on Saturday evening, July 21, to introduce the things that are new and unique at EAA AirVenture 2018. However, there is a lot of cool stuff that has little to do with being new stuff, but still deserves the designation of 'cool.' This is where we need your help. Despite the fact we have the largest news staff on the ground at AirVenture, our nearly 30 staffers still aren’t enough to find out what’s ‘really cool’ because what’s really cool is not all about us or what we think, it’s about what the thousands of people think who attend this great adventure known as AirVenture. To help us share what’s really cool to you, we are initiating our first time ‘#OSH18Cool’ program that allows you to tweet
