Airborne 09.25.17: PAL-V 'Flying Car', Tecnam P2012, G650 TC Anniversary

Also: Virgin Atlantic, SpaceX Video, Wipaire, Women And Drones, Boeing 787, Ameri-King, BelugaXL

A PAL-V vice president plans to fly around the world in his personal "flying car", though no firm date has been set to begin the attempt. PAL-V VP of sales Mark Jennings-Bates said that he plans to fly his personal aircraft on the attempt,  accompanied by a second PAL-V that will record the flight on video. Jennings-Bates said that he hopes to depart from and return to San Francisco with the flight taking about 90 days. The company has not officially announced the attempt, but plans for the flight are reportedly well underway. Fuel management will be a critical issue for the flight, as the PAL-V Liberty has a range of about 270 nautical miles while flying. Tecnam has announced an agreement with U.S.-based commuter airline Cape Air on a delivery schedule for the first 20 of 100 Tecnam P2012 Travell

That was the "psuedo-schedule" given to ANN CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell by ONE Aviation CEO Alan Klapmeier at AirVenture in July.

Airborne-Unmanned 09.19.17: FAA OKs FL Drone Ops, ICAO Registry?, No Pot Drones

Also: FAA Reauthorization, Medical Drone Transport, USMC Quadcopters, Canister Launched UAS, Atlas Dynamics

Airborne, primarily based in Jacksonville, FL is starting to recover from Hurricane Irma, and we can thank the Unmanned community for much of that. After the widespread devastation Hurricane Irma wreaked on Florida, unmanned aircraft have been invaluable in supporting response and recovery efforts here. A wide variety of agencies sought FAA authorization to fly drones in the affected areas. The FAA responded quickly, issuing a total of well over 100 airspace authorizations. This could get ugly... The ICAO is backing an effort to create a single global drone registry with a goal of the adoption of common rules for flying and tracking UAVs. The idea will be discussed at a symposium planned for Sept. 22-23 in Montreal. Stephen Creamer, director of ICAO's Air Navigation Bureau, said that the sin
