Airborne 06.24.19: StratoLaunch 4 Sale?, Canada Needs Pilots, MidEast NOTAM

Also: NAC Acquiring ATRs, Kopter’s SH09 Third Proto, UK Red Arrows, Gone West-Jack Swope

The Stratolaunch aircraft, developed to launch small payloads into space from a conventional runway, is being offered for sale by Vulcan, the holding company founded by the late Paul Allen. Stratolaunch, which has flown once, is being offered for $400 million. The price includes the airplane, intellectual property, and associated facilities. Neither Stratolaunch or Vulcan would comment on the rumors of a proposed sale, saying that the company "remains operational. We will provide an update when there is news to share." But the company has been downsizing during the first half of this year, and much of the workforce has been laid off even with a valid contract to launch a small rocket for Northrop in 2020. In June 2019, programs were launched to ensure the continuing health of the Royal Canadian Air Force

Airborne-Unmanned 06.25.19: Falco Xplorer, AUVSI On UAS Security, Japan UAV Regs

Also: Howler Counter-UAS, Drones v Forest Fires, Corgan Design, Raytheon-AirMap Collaboration

Leonardo introduced its largest-ever Remotely-Piloted Air System (RPAS), the Falco Xplorer, last week at the Paris Air Show. The new drone features a payload capacity of 770 pounds, more than 24 hours flight time and a satellite communications capability for beyond-radio-line-of-sight operations, all within a 1.3 ton maximum take-off weight (MTOW). At a hearing held by the US Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee Subcommittee on Security last week, Brian Wynne, president and CEO of AUVSI, called for accelerated federal rulemakings and the development of holistic policy solutions that provide the framework to keep the nation’s skies secure. In his testimony, Wynne emphasized the importance of approaching UAS security from an overall airspace management perspective, rather than focusin

AMA Drone Report 06.20.19: FAA LoA, SAFEDrone, EU-Wide Rules

Also: ANN Oshkosh Coverage, Uber Eats Delivery By Drone, CA State Fair Drone Show

The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 requires all flying sites within controlled airspace to have a letter of agreement (LOA) with air traffic control (ATC) facilities. AMA is working directly with the FAA to prioritize this work and ensure that you have the protections you need to continue to fly. However, we need some additional information to accomplish this. Recently, emails have been sent to club officers to ensure correct completion of an FAA questionnaire to obtain the information needed for this LOA. Multiple submissions for the same flying site will delay the process of an LOA, so the email was sent only to club officers to coordinate this effort. SAFEDrone is a classroom protocol for training students to operate drones indoors, assuring proper training to mitigate risk. Students will apply classroom math, sc

ANN Social Media Program (ANN-SMP) Expanded For Oshkosh 2019!

ANN Keeps Pushing Aviation Media (Kicking and Screaming) Further Into The 21st Century...

ANN is, again, radically updating its social media campaign for the upcoming 2019 Oshkosh AirVenture Fly-In. This is just the latest step in a series of massive upgrades we're making as Aero-News becomes the 'Aero-Verse.' This program will concentrate on the three most persuasive forms of social media outreach -- short succinct messaging, compelling high-resolution still photography, and carefully formatted HD video. Our staff of journalists will be beating up Wittman Field all week long looking for suitable subjects for this effort, and you’re welcome to help us make sure that YOU don't get left out. You are welcome to text suggestions to 863-860-5790, or email news@aero-news.net with your suggestions. You can also Skype us directly at AERONEWSNET.
