Airborne 10.12.18: Soyuz Close Call, ONE Aviation BK, Balloon Fiesta v UAVs

Also: Pentagon Grounds F-35s, Pilot Fired, FedEx Offers Bonuses, United Airlines

A Russian launch to the ISS, carrying a Russian and American astronaut, was aborted early in the launch phase, but has resulted in the safe landing and recovery of both crewmen. Few astronauts will argue that a failure early in the launch phase is one of their worst nightmares, and for first time NASA Astronaut Nick Hague, this very short first rocket excursion had to be a stunning disappointment. NASA’s initial statement says, "The Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the International Space Station at 4:40 a.m. EDT Thursday, Oct. 11 carrying American astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin. Shortly after launch, there was an anomaly with the booster and the launch ascent was aborted, resulting in a ballistic landing of the spacecraft.” It’

Airborne-Unmanned 10.09.18: FAA Reauthorized, MQ-9B SkyGuardian, MultiGP/DRL

Also: V-247 Vigilant UAV, ParaZero FAA Waiver, AUVSI'S Trusted Operator, Augusta Drone Company

The President of the United States has signed the long-term FAA Reauthorization that was finally approved by both the House and Senate over the past several days. Not everyone is happy (least of all, the model aviation community--for good reason), but most of the truly onerous aspects put forth in the last few years, especially the push for ATC Privatization, have gone by the wayside... for now. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) completed the first flight of its second MQ-9B SkyGuardian Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) (YBC02) aircraft on September 26. The flight of the company-owned aircraft was conducted at Laguna Army Airfield in Yuma Proving Grounds. The second MQ-9B SkyGuardian gives the GA-ASI program team another aircraft to perform important development testing and demonstrations
