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.

AMA Drone Report 05.25.17: Court Kills FAA Model Drone Registration, DJI Spark!

Also: AMA Reacts To Court, FAA Reaction, AUVSI Reaction, Kittyhawk Flight Deck APP

Score one for us little guys... As you may have heard, 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. In Section 336 of the law, Congress specified that the FAA "may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft.” The Act defines “model aircraft” as “an unmanned aircraft that is — (1) capable of sustained flight in the atmosphere; (2) flown within visual line of sight of the person operating the aircraft; and (3) flown for hobby or recreational purposes.” Maryland attorney John Taylor challenged the registration requirement based on Section 336, saying that the rule was unlawful as a

DJI has just introduced the Spark, which they call an "easy-to-use, fun-to-fly mini camera drone that lifts off from the palm of your hand to capture and share the special moments in your life on the go." The little drone’s aims are clear... keep it simple... using a number of new control concepts that range from an ingenious cadre of specialized hand gestures to mobile device control to quasi-conventional Flight controllers... and to incorporate scads of accessories and additional functionality. The revised DJI APP support is impressive. Triton Aerospace, a Chinese corporation with U.S. operations based in Washington State, has purchased the South Lakeland (FL) airport for $2 million with plans to establish a training and support center. The airport, on the south side of Lakeland Linder Airport has had its share o
