Airborne 04.11.18: Aviat Husky Update, Google Workers v Drones, NASM

Also: PS Engineering, Nalls Aviation, Lakeland Wants An Airline, Love Field Closed Briefly

One of our favorite taildraggers, the Aviat Husky, just got a makeover... Upgrades include the addition of a new trim system, replacing the previous bungee system.

The elevator trim tab that reduces trim workload and system pressures and also increases control stick feedback. An extended landing gear option makes the aircraft more stable for landing on terrain or slopes and adds propeller clearance by extending the gear four inches, moving the tires forward two inches and making the gear 12 inches wider... Google employees are asking company management to end its participation in the Department of Defence Project Maven, which would incorporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) in drone surveillance software. More than 3,000 employees have reportedly signed a letter requesting that the company withdraw from the project, citing the company's motto "Don't Be Evil". Ellen Stofan, currently consulting senior scientist at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, has been named the John and Adrienne Mars Director of the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum effective April 30. She is the first woman to hold this position. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
