Airborne 01.15.18: SpaceShipTwo Update, Intel CEO Flies Volocopter, R66 Global

Also: Workhorse SureFly Not Flying Yet, GovSat-1, ‘Even More Girls-In Tech’, Alaska A/L

VSS Unity has successfully completed her seventh glide flight. In the few months since Unity's last flight, the team has worked through a planned period of focused ground time. This involved extensive analysis, testing and small modifications to ensure vehicle readiness for the higher loads and forces of powered test flight. That work was tested Thursday by pushing Unity’s atmospheric capabilities hard, touching top-end glide speeds as pilots Mark ‘Forger’ Stucky and Michael ‘Sooch’ Masucci completed a busy test card. During last week’s Intel keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show, German Air Taxi company Volocopter said that it has flown Intel CEO Brian Krzanich as the very first passenger of a Volocopter. “That was fantastic.

GoPro announced in its most recent earnings report that it is exiting the camera drone market after it sells off its existing drone inventory. The company is reportedly laying off between 200 and 300 people, mostly from the Karma segment of the business.
