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

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

Airborne 07.12.19: 737 MAX RTS?, Virgin Galactic Merges, UK Pilot Record

Also: Teenagers Fly Sling 4, Infrastructure Grants, Turtle On The Tarmac, Focus On Aviation Safety

EASA has sent a letter to the FAA and Boeing outlining five major requirements the agency says need to be addressed before it will allow the Boeing 737 MAX to return to service in Europe. The issues identified by EASA parallel the FAA's concerns. The FAA said that the agency "confirm(s) the specific matters being raised by EASA but said: “The FAA continues to work closely with other validating civil aviation authorities on our review of Boeing’s certification documentation for the 737 MAX. This process involves regular communications among all parties" but did not confirm the items specified by EASA. Virgin Galactic and Social Capital Hedosophia, have announced their upcoming merger, with SCH owning up to approximately 49% of the company. Upon closing of the transaction, w

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.
