AMA Drone Report 09.20.18: Section 336 Update, LAANC Course, Drones In Florence

Also: FAA Reauthorization Stalled, Golf Course Drone Delivery, eBee X Fixed-Wing, Drone Locates Missing Woman

It is still uncertain if Congress will pass an FAA Authorization bill by the September 30 deadline, but legislators have begun work to resolve some of the issues surrounding the Special Rule for Model Aircraft (Section 336), which may include remote ID requirements on some aircraft. A congressional update on Section 336 was just released via a video from Interim Executive Director, Chad Budreau. Drone pilots can take a new free King Schools course titled Using LAANC to Fly Drones in Controll

Airborne 09.17.18: Round The World Spitfire, Reno MidAir, Loon Program

Seriously... just say the name, SPITFIRE, and you have nearly any pilot’s immediate attention as they consider the iconic airplane that so many have admired and so few have actually flown. And as exciting as the aircraft and its warrior history may be, there is one thing that this infamous aircraft has never done... fly around the world. BUT... two adventurous aviators seem intent on changing all that. The two British flyers, Matt Jones and Steve Brooks, intend to leave Southern England on a trans-global journey by next fall in a brightly polished silver Spitfire Mark IX, returning the following Christmas after an adventure that should require some 150 stops in over 30 countries
