Airborne 07.17.19: Sling NGT, Twin Tigers Aerobatic Team, Able Flight

Also: PilotVision Augmented Reality, Becker Avionics, Unleaded Avgas Replacement, Missing Man Stole Plane

At the typical ‘Joe’s Flight School’ seen at many American airports, the average flight training aircraft often doesn’t look so much different than the one your father might have flown… or your grandfather, for that matter. The Airplane Factory has an alternative to yesterday’s battered trainers with the all-new Sling NGT (Next-Generation Trainer), a sporty, modern, FADEC-equipped, training aircraft. First; the Sling NGT looks like what a modern trainer should look like… with a big, high-visibility sliding bubble canopy, a modern Rotax engine, and a brand new G3X glass panel. The Twin Tigers Aerobatic Team is the 2019 recipient of the Bill Barber Award for Showmanship. One of the most prestigious awards in the airshow industry, the list of Barber hon

Airborne-Unmanned 07.16.19: Bahamas UAV Delivery, Fire Scout, Police Drones

Also: Citadel Counter-Drone Tech, UX11 Drone Family, Airobotics, ANN Oshkosh Webcast Schedule

A strategic partnership between Volans-i and Hogfish Ventures company Fli Drone to provide on-demand drone delivery services in The Bahamas recently resulted in the successful completion of the first long-range UAV delivery in The Bahamas on June 18. The delivery originated at Abaco Aviation Services, a private FBO at The Leonard M. Thompson International Airport in Marsh Harbour and completed its delivery at Green Turtle Cay in 28 minutes. Previously this same delivery would require transit in both a car and on a ferry. VTOL capabilities allowed the drone to land and safely deliver its payload without any infrastructure required. In total, the fully autonomous flight covered nearly 50 miles, crossing both land and water. The Navy declared initial operational capability of the MQ-8C Fire Scout unmanned he

AMA Drone Report 07.11.19: AMA Exec Council, DJI Objects, More FAA Restrictions

Also: Oshkosh Awaits!, MMC Partners W/Yuneec, Drone Strike Assessment, No Drone... Turtle!

Late last month, the AMA Executive Council and the Government Affairs team took a trip to Washington, D.C. to advocate for our hobby. Throughout these meetings, AMA emphasized their commitment to safety and education -- also highlighting examples of how flying model aircraft is a pathway to STEM-related to careers and the work we do to support local charities. Importantly, AMA discussed the upcoming FAA rule-makings for recreational UAS, and were encouraged by the positive dialogue. The FAA recognizes the importance of the model aviation community and wants to continue our longstanding partnership. On Capitol Hill, members of Congress pledged support to AMA and stand ready to weigh-in with the FAA on our behalf, as needed. DJI has released an open letter in which it expresses "deep disappointment" with

ANN Social Media Program (ANN-SMP) Expanded For Oshkosh 2019!

ANN Keeps Pushing Aviation Media (Kicking and Screaming) Further Into The 21st Century...

ANN is, again, radically updating its social media campaign for the upcoming 2019 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.

Aero-News AirVenture Update: This Is So Cool! #OSH19COOL

We Need YOUR Help To Find AND Celebrate The Coolest Stuff At EAA AirVenture 2019, #OSH19COOL

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 20, to introduce the things that are new and unique at EAA AirVenture 2019. 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 ‘#OSH19Cool’ program that allows you to tweet
