Airborne-Unmanned 05.23.17: Courts Nix Model Registration, Antonymous Flt, WATT 300

Also: King Schools Update, Kittyhawk APP, Robird And Integrated Drone Solutions, ICAO Drone Tracking

The unmanned community got a bit of a jolt late last week when the US Court of Appeals shot down the FAA’s regulation of recreational unmanned aircraft systems... Industry reaction has been swift... AUVSI has some concerns with the aftermath of the ruling, as President and CEO, Brian Wynne clearly expressed, “AUVSI is disappointed with the decision today by the U.S. Court of Appeals to reject the FAA’s rule for registering recreational unmanned aircraft systems. A UAS registration system is important to promote accountability and responsibility by users of the national airspace, and helps create a culture of safety that deters careless and reckless behavior. We plan to work with Congress on a legislative solution that will ensure continued accountability across the entire aviation community, both manned and unmanned." Virginia Governor Terry McAuli

The NTSB has released its preliminary report from an accident involving an Icon A5 airplane that resulted in the fatal injury of the two people on board the aircraft. According to the report, on May 8, 2017, about 0908 Pacific daylight time, the Icon Aircraft Inc. A5, N184BA, impacted terrain while maneuvering near Lake Berryessa, California. Representatives from Icon Aircraft reported that the pilot was conducting a new employee familiarization flight with the passenger, who was recently hired by the company. A witness observed the accident airplane flying over the lake about 30 to 50 feet above the water, at what seemed to be a low speed. AEA, AIA and GAMA have announced the approval of an updated United States FAA  Industry Guide to Product Certification. The last version of the guide was published in 2004. The updated guide will help institutionalize bes

Airborne 05.22.17: Court Nukes FAA Model Drone Regs, Lancair Moves, Virgin Orbit

The hobby drone industry just got a bit shook up... The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. has ruled that the FAA violated the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 when it required the registration of model aircraft, including drones, that are flown strictly for recreational purposes, and has vacated the Registration Rule for those aircraft. Maryland attorney John Taylor challenged the registration requirement based on Section 336, saying that the rule was unlawful as applied to model aircraft. The last two weeks of April have seen the Lancair Uvalde hangar complex bustling with activity. All hands have been hard at work unloading trucks, building storage racks and stowing a variety of molds, tools and fixtures essential for Lancair's return to kit manufacturing. In the weeks ahead, the team will inventory, refurbish a

NASA Delivers Detectors For ESA's Euclid Spacecraft

Spacecraft Scheduled For Launch In 2020

Three detector systems for the Euclid mission, led by ESA (European Space Agency), have been delivered to Europe for the spacecraft's near-infrared instrument. The detector systems are key components of NASA's contribution to this upcoming mission to study some of the biggest questions about the universe, including those related to the properties and effects of dark matter and dark energy -- two critical, but invisible phenomena that scientists think make up the vast majority of our universe.
