Also: ATC Opposition, Want to Be An Aero-Stringer?, CAP's Next CEO, Hypersonic Jet, Spring Airlines, Leonardo, 505 Jet Ranger X

Following Wednesday’s release of the language proposed by the US House of Representatives, a consortium of general aviation groups has provided united opposition to the legislation introduced by Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pennsylvania). The latest documentation includes provisions, again, to turn the nation's air traffic control infrastructure and services to a privatized, non-profit board dominated by commercial aviation interests. The joint statement came from EAA, AOPA, NBAA, NATA, GAMA, and HAI. Boeing has announced the launch of the 737 MAX 10 as the newest member of the 737 MAX family at the 2017 Paris Air Show.

AMA Drone Report 06.22.17: FAA Reauthorization, Rotor Riot Int'l, DRL on ESPN

Also: Drones at Oshkosh!, Drone Regulatory Effort, AMA Drone Report-Help Wanted, Aero-TV: MultiGP Drone Racing

Airbus is presenting a development study for an enhanced A380, the “A380plus”. The study includes aerodynamic improvements in particular new, large winglets and other wing refinements that allow for up to 4% fuel savings. Added to an optimized A380 maintenance program and enhanced cabin features, the overall benefit is a 13% cost per seat reduction versus today’s A380. The new winglets measure approximately 15 feet in height (an uplet of 11 feet, and a downlet of 4 feet). It is designed to improve aerodynamics and reduce drag.
