Airborne 02.14.20: Airbus Blended Wing, GoFly FlyOff, Boeing Woes

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. The GoFly Prize, a $2 m

Also: Madrid Airport Drone Sighting, UAV Power Line Inspection, senseFly, Remote ID NPRM

The New Zealand Government and Wisk have announced an MOU to establish a passenger transport trial in  Canterbury, New Zealand. Wisk’s self-flying, all-electric air taxi, called Cora, is the aircraft selected for the trials. In October 2019, the New Zealand Government announced that it was establishing an industry-wide Airspace Integration Trial to work with leading, innovative domestic and international industry partners to safely test and demonstrate unmanned aircraft. Wisk, based in the United States and New Zealand, was announced as the first industry partner to join this program. Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation (NASC) has successfully completed a test flight of the NASC TEROS UAV, Technology Demonstrator at the NASC Unmanned Aerial Systems Flight Operations and Training Center at the Griffi

AMA Drone Report 02.13.20: Huge NPRM Response, Horizon Hobby, FAA UAS Symposium

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. A Horizon hobby video, narrated by Horizon Hobby Marketing Director, Steve Petrotto, has many in the drone community, especially FPV flyers, up in arms. The video was published in order to address Horizon’s concerns about the remote ID proposal... but over the course of the few minutes of the vid

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (02.17.20)

“Based on the TBM’s proven design, the upgrades that Daher brings to each new model amply justified our purchases of the four aircraft... The TBM fits our transportation profile: I can plan for a 1,000-nautical mile flight under almost any conditions. And it is a pleasure to work with many of the same people for years, which is a credit to Daher. Additionally, I consider the five-year warranty of significant value alone in justifying a new acquisition.” Source: From comments made by Dr. Ian Blair Fries, as Daher has announced the delivery of its 300th TBM 900-series aircraft, which incorporates a personalized paint scheme for its owners, who received their TBM 940 version as the fourth TBM-family airplane they have acquired over the past 20 years.
