AMA Drone Report 10.19.17: Drone/Airliner Midair?, FAA Sued, CNN 107 Waiver

Also: Swedish Drone Ban Lifted, Rocky Mountain Hobby-Expo, Drone Shark Detection, Kittyhawk DJI Sync 2.0

Recent reports about a midair collision between a jet and a drone have been mis-stated or based on pretty tenuous detail. Worse; Canada’s Marc Garneau, their Minister of Transport has jumped all over the story, even issuing a press release long before any real detail has emerged. What do we know? On 12 October 2017, a Skyjet Beech King Air A100 (a turbo prop... NOT a jet) was on an IFR flight to the Jean Lesage International Airport in Québec City, Quebec with 8 souls on board. The aircraft was approaching runway 24 and had just passed the final approach fix when the crew claims to have seen a drone at the extremity of the left wing. A drone operator from Arkansas named Michael Reichert has filed a class-action lawsuit against the FAA because he has not yet received a refund for hi

Airborne-Unmanned 10.17.17: Eagles v Drones, DJI AeroScope, Drone Policy

Also: AeroVironment Award, Washington State Patrol, Altavian Nova UAS, Robotaxis

The French Military is training four Golden Eagles to attack drones in flight as a way to defend against potential spying or attacks from the unmanned aircraft. The idea came up after several drones were flown over the French Presidential Palace. But they were not the first to consider such a plan. The Dutch National Police recently released a video showing an eagle taking down a DJI drone. That bird was trained by a company that is specializing in teaching birds of prey to attack unmanned aircraft. DJI has unveiled AeroScope, a new solution to identify and monitor airborne drones with existing technology that can address safety, security and privacy concerns. AeroScope uses the existing communications link between a drone and its remote controller to broadcast identification information such as a registration or seri
