AMA Drone Report 05.24.18: Drone Rescues, AMA Celebrates, Onerous Ohio Regs

Also: Drone Ops Over DoD Facilities, Space Needle Drone Crash, NAA’s Most Memorable, Textron's X5-55

As the reputation of the drone community, hobby and professional, continues to evolve, drones involved in rescue and recovery efforts are making our rep shine ever brighter... and we could use all of that we can get. A recent example resulted in the the recovery of two hikers and an incapacitated dog who found themselves stranded in New Mexico along a wooded hiking trail -- and who now owe their well-being to the use of a firefighter's personal drone. A five member search team was deployed when one of hikers, a man and a woman, called 911 at 1700 local time, to request help. The couple and their dog were lost in Otero Canyon, according to reports from the  Bernalillo County Fire Department. AMA has been busy and has reported what’s been a successful year lobbying in Washington on b

Aurora says that this was the first ever “autonomous point-to-point cargo resupply mission” providing critical logistics support to Marines in need.

Aero-News AirVenture Update: This Is So Cool! #OSH18COOL

We Need YOUR Help To Find AND Celebrate The Coolest Stuff At EAA AirVenture 2018, #OSH18COOL

Stuff that’s new is cool… we get it… that’s why we’re bringing our AirVenture Innovation Preview webcast to you on Saturday evening, July 21, to introduce the things that are new and unique at EAA AirVenture 2018. However, there is a lot of cool stuff that has little to do with being new stuff, but still deserves the designation of 'cool.' This is where we need your help. Despite the fact we have the largest news staff on the ground at AirVenture, our nearly 30 staffers still aren’t enough to find out what’s ‘really cool’ because what’s really cool is not all about us or what we think, it’s about what the thousands of people think who attend this great adventure known as AirVenture. To help us share what’s really cool to you, we are initiating our first time ‘#OSH18Cool’ program that allows you to tweet

ANNouncement: Now Accepting Applications For Oshkosh 2018 Stringers!!!

An Amazing Experience Awaits The Chosen Few...

Like in years past, we have something up our sleeves -- actually SEVERAL big somethings -- BUT, this year, they could be some of the biggest upgrades/surprises we've pulled off yet -- so we're going to be changing quite a few things about how we cover Oshkosh, as a result. IF YOU want to be a part of this unique adventure, speak up NOW, rather than later, because we're going to looking for the best volunteer folks we can find and are planning to do so ASAP. You've been warned (grin)....
