Airborne 12.11.19: Granley's Airshow Record, Global Spitfire, AirVenture

Also: Tuskegee Airman's 100th, Blue Angels Update, Piper Aircraft, SpaceX In-Flight Abort Test

Walking the floor of the International Council Of Airshows convention is fun stuff... amazing people, amazing planes, amazing shows... But one of the most amazing stories of all has been a bit of a secret... until now. Long-Time airshow veteran, Bud Granley, of Bellevue, WA, is about to start his 60th airshow season. A record that may be unequaled (as far as we know) started nearly 6 decades ago as Bud undertook a military career before eventually transitioning to the airlines and civilian airshow gigs that made him a particular favorite on the West side of the US and Canada. A pair of British Pilots have completed the first circumnavigation of the Earth in a restored Spitfire. On December 5th, The Silver Spitfire Longest Flight expedition came to a triumphant end as friends, family, colleagues, and hund

Also: Recreational Drone Flying Aeronautical Test, Drone Poll, OSU Drone Project, AF Academy UAS Center

Lockheed Martin and The Drone Racing League have announced the winning AlphaPilot team of the 2019 Artificial Intelligence Robotic Racing (AIRR) Circuit. During Friday night's AIRR Championship, Team MAVLab, the drone research lab of the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands, won the coveted $1 million cash prize, sponsored by Lockheed Martin, after their drone autonomously zipped through the track at a top finishing-time of 12 seconds – 25% faster than the second-place drone. Dog Owners in the U.K. are being warned to be on the lookout for drones over their properties after a rare liver-and-white dalmation dog was stolen from a home in Leicestershire. The dog went missing on December 1 from the home of Chloe Hopkins. Earlier, Chloe's mother Gemma said she had seen a drone flyi

Airborne 12.09.19: DroneStrike... Or Not?, Rotax 2020 Fly-In, ICAS 2019

Also: Pensacola NAS Tragedy, DHS May Require Pix, UAL Leadership Shift, NASA Parker Solar Probe

While no actual physical or visual evidence has been confirmed at this point, a drone is being blamed for the damage to a news helicopter in Southern California. The crew of the KABC Air7 HD news gathering helicopter made an emergency landing Thursday after ‘something’ struck the helicopter's tail. Despite the current lack of substantiation, nonetheless, the crew believes their aircraft was hit by a drone. The new helo was flying at an altitude of about 1,100 feet when the crew heard a "pop," then a loud bang. Reporter Chris Cristi told KABC that at the time, they did not know what had hit them. Having become something of a juggernaut in the light aircraft powerplant arena, especially withe recent introduction of the 141HP Rotax 915iS, Rotax is reaching out to its customer base again, in ord

Also: Bob Hoover Legacy Foundation, IFR Checkride Webinar, Heli SAFO, DA42 MT-Prop, NORAD

Boeing and Kitty Hawk have rebooted their joint eVTOL project, rolling out a new brand for the Cora program. Now known as "Wisk", the new website explains that the recently-established company is a joint venture between The Boeing Company and Kitty Hawk Corporation. The aircraft is still called "Cora". The aircraft features a vertical lift system that includes 12 independent rotors. Each direct drive motor combination has only one moving part: the fan. Flight tests have shown that an issue with one rotor is automatically handled with no discernible change in the flight path. A unique public event on August 18, 2020 will commemorate the 80th anniversary of The Battle of Britain, the first campaign of WWII to be fought entirely in the air. Biggin Hill played a significant role in the battle, which culminated on
