After sitting on a runway in Roswell, NM for more than 30 years, a significant piece of Elvis memorabilia is about to go under the auctioneer's gavel. The King's private JetStar airplane will be auctioned on May 27 by GWS Auctions in California. The opening bid is $10,000, but the auction house estimates the value of the airplane, which is missing its engines, at between $2 and $3.5 million. The aircraft is said to be the "lost" jet that Elvis owned with his father, Vernon Presley. Airbus Corporate Jets has launched a private jet version of its new A330neo. Called the ACJ330neo, it will fly 25 passengers 9,400 nm or 20 hours, enough to fly nonstop from Europe to Australia.

Airborne-Unmanned 05.23.17: Courts Nix Model Regs, Autonymous 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
