We are happy to announce that the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will return to their 2016 demonstration schedule July 2-4 in Traverse City, Michigan. The Blue Angels temporarily stood down, canceling three weekend shows following a crash on June 2 during a practice in Smyrna, Tennessee, in which Marine Captain, Jeff Kuss, lost his life. The Team will fly a modified five-jet demonstration in Traverse City, along with Fat Albert, the Blue Angels C-130 transport plane. The town of Hempstead, New York on Long Island has voted to prohibit the operation of unmanned aircraft over town-owned property, including public beaches, parks and golf courses. Town officials said that the ban was necessary to protect the privacy of people using those areas. UAV owners, civil liberties attorneys, and some residents argued against the ban, saying it infringes on their right to fly their aircraft in public spaces. They also argued that the FAA controls airspace and the town does not have the right to put such a ban in place. Jet fuel taxes may be on the way as lawmakers in New Jersey consider how to build up a $20 billion, 10-year infrastructure fund. The proposed collected funds would be for general infrastructure purposes, but the FAA requires that all fuel taxes be used only for airport infrastructure improvements or operating costs.
