Also: Starliner Problems, NATA Update, NBAA v Congress, Iran Fails, Jerks on Planes

Airbus has revealed MAVERIC (Model Aircraft for Validation and Experimentation of Robust Innovative Controls) its “blended wing body” scale model technological demonstrator. At 6.5 feet long and 10.5 feet wide, with a surface area of about 24 square feet, MAVERIC features a disruptive aircraft design that Airbus says has the potential to reduce fuel consumption by up-to 20 percent compared to current single-aisle aircraft. Launched in 2017, MAVERIC first took to the skies in June 2019. Since then the flight-test campaign has been on-going and will continue until the end of Q2 2020. The culmination of the GoFly global competition ... the GoFly Final Fly Off ... is slated for February 27-29, 2020 at Moffett Federal Airfield at NASA's Ames Research Center, Mountain View, California.

Also: Drone Delivers Wine, UAV v Motorcycle Cops, Madrid Airport Hysteria, Daytona 500 TFR

If there was any doubt that the model aviation community has a problem with the current direction and policies of the FAA, the 13,000 comments posted to the FAA’s NPRM in just the last few weeks should kill those thoughts, pronto. Despite a short window for commentary and the FAA’s inexplicable denial of a deadline extension, thanks to the EAA, the comments are coming in at a near record pace... and while the current numbers aren’t a record for an NPRM, they could be, before this is all over.
