Airborne 04.22.19: Cirrus Emergency AD, Indoor Skydiving, Praetor 600

Also: CFI PROficiency Initiative, Damaged Falcon Heavy Core, Enhanced MD 969, ICAO’s 193rd Member

To the surprise of few who have chronicled the many issues troubling the Cirrus SF50 program, the FAA has issued an emergency AD for SF50 Vision Jets following multiple reports of the stall warning and protection system (SWPS) or Electronic Stability & Protection (ESP) System engaging when not appropriate. The SWPS or ESP systems may engage even when sufficient airspeed and proper angle of attack (AOA) exists for normal flight. This AD requires replacing the AOA sensors with improved AOA sensors, before further flight. Some 300 world-class indoor skydivers from 31 different countries are participating the third edition of the FAI World Indoor Skydiving Championships, which kicked off April 17 in the French city of Lille. Through this past weekend, they were fighting it out for a place on the

Airborne-Unmanned 04.23.19: AUVSI Comments, Parrot ANAFI Thermal, Rega Drone

Also: MetaVista World Record, Family Drone Festival, Drone Workforce Solutions, Intelligent Energy

AUVSI says the FAA's proposed rules for operating sUAS over people and for safe and secure small UAS operations are too restrictive and do not consider the safety or societal benefits of the technology. In comments submitted to the FAA, AUVSI also urges the agency to adopt rules for flying UAS at night and requiring the use of remote identification. “The FAA has taken a prescriptive approach to these two proposed regulations, which are overly conservative and too restrictive,” said Brian Wynne, president and CEO of AUVSI. “Existing data and emerging UAS capabilities and applications should instead guide rulemaking and help advance the commercial use of unmanned systems.” Parrot has launched ANAFI Thermal: a new drone capable of capturing both live and recorded 4K HD video and

Airborne 04.19.19: Spin Record Attempt, Falcon Heavy, BendixKing

Also: TBM 910 Model Year 2019, Gone West: Owen Garriott, Parrot ANAFI Thermal, SpaceIL $1 Million

Aerobatic pilot Spencer Suderman is gearing up to attempt a new world record for the most inverted flat spins in an aircraft. This will be Suderman’s second shot at the record after he aborted an attempt in February. “I entered the spin and the plane went around faster than expected at altitude, so fast that the transverse G-loads were far greater than I was prepared for, which made it hard to breath. That coupled with the negative G-loads from being inverted made the situation intolerable.” Rough seas caused damage to the SpaceX Falcon Heavy center core after its second flight. The company launched the Arabsat-6A communications satellite in its first commercial flight for Falcon Heavy. The two outer boosters landed safely back at Cape Canaveral, but the center core, which landed on

Airborne 04.17.19: HX-2 Flying Wing, Evektor SportStar RTC, 'Transwing'

Also: Me & My TBM V3, Dog In Cockpit, F-14 Monument, Special Skydive

After several years of development, the prototype of the Horten HX-2 made its public debut at AERO-Friedrichshafen last week. The single engine HX-2 was built at Horten headquarters at the Kindel airfield. The prototype, based on the original design by Reimar Horten, incorporates a blended-wing both technology comprised of carbon/glass-fiber materials. It is powered by a Rotax 912 engine turning a pusher propeller. It carries a little more than 60 gallons of fuel in two tanks. Evektor´s SportStar RTC has received EASA approval for night operation. The SportStar RTC is popular among European air clubs and professional pilot training organizations. The Night VFR version of the SportStar RTC is equipped with the certified Rotax 912S (100 hp), 3-blade ground adjustable propeller, a Glass Cockpit with Dual 10.6” Screen

AMA Drone Report 04.18.19: Flt Over People, Not Drone Fault, FAA ANPRM

Also: Gatwick Drone 'Chaos', Fenway Park Foolishness, Utah Legislature, Parrot ANAFI Thermal

AMA has responded to the FAA's NPRM on the Operation of sUAS Over People. Overall, the AMA believes the proposed rulemakings on flying over people and night flying are a step toward opening the airspace for more commercial unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operators. For model aircraft hobbyists, however, they do not anticipate these rules will have a significant impact on their existing guidelines for safe and responsible operation. "...For years, our National Model Aircraft Safety Code has been recognized by Congress, as well as state legislatures, as a safe and effective means of managing the model aircraft community. Our members know where, when and how to fly safely and they do not present a risk to the airspace," the AMA commented. On March 29, 2018, a pilot and passenger departed Thames Aerodrome in N
