Airborne 01.24.20: AUS Firefighter Tragedy, MAX Update, PS752 Lawsuit

Also: Avidyne Helios, PS Engineering PAC45, Deployment Returns, Airport Chicken Politics

A C-130 Hercules water tanker owned by Oregon-based Coulson Aviation has gone down in New South Wales, Australia while fighting bush fires in the region. Three American crew members were fatally injured Thursday when the plane went down in the state's Snowy Morano region. Coulson Aviation said that one of its Lockheed-manufactured tankers went down after it left Richmond in NSW loaded with fire retardant. The company offered few details about the accident other than to say it was "extensive." Boeing has released a statement updating its situation with the beleaguered 737 MAX, which has been grounded since last March. "As we have emphasized, the FAA and other global regulators will determine when the 737 MAX returns to service. However, in order to help our customers and suppliers plan their operations, we peri

Apple has hired an attorney specializing in drone and aviation law to act as a lobbyist for the company in Washington, D.C. Lisa Ellman, who leads the UAS practice for the law firm Hogan Lovells, has joined the tech firm. Elllman was also a co-founder of the Commercial Drone Alliance.

AMA Drone Report 01.23.20: DJI Phantom ReIntro, Autel Evo II, EAA v RID

Also: Drone Test Site Program, FoxFury D3060, Airbus eVTOL Vahana, Super Bowl TFR

The DJI Phantom line of drones, considered by some to be the industry standard, vanished from store shelves about 14 months ago. At the time, DJI cited a "parts shortage" that prevented it from manufacturing new Phantom drones. Well, the Phantom 4 Pro is back. DJI posted a statement saying that the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is again available for purchase as of January 6, 2020. A new drone from Autel Robotics was introduced at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. The 8K Autel Evo II is billed as a potential "Mavic Killer" by the company. Autel Robotics says that the Evo II will have a standard 7100mAh battery that provides up to 40 minutes of flight time in forward motion or 35 minutes in hover. The drone can be controlled at a range of up to 4.8 nautical miles, and has a dozen computer vision sensors controlled by a dual-core processor
