Airborne-Unmanned 09.02.20: Prime Air Pt 135, Autonomous Cessnas, SumoAir

Also: Multi-Lingual Drone Program, Vue TZ20, 1st Agility Prime 'Flying Car', KSU Polytechnic

If you thought that you saw too many Prime trucks around the highways and byways of America, it may be time to look skyward.

Amazing Prime Air has been granted a Part 135 ticket ("Part 135 air carrier certificate using unmanned aircraft systems") to start trial operations of drone deliveries... something that has been on their drawing board for years. this allows Amazon to join the ranks of UPS and Alphabet-owned Wing, who have already pioneered some limited FAA approval for their drone delivery aspirations. Reliable Robotics has reportedly achieved successful test flights of remote-piloted passenger airplanes in United States airspace. In the first flight, the pilot pressed a button on a remote user interface and an unmanned four passenger Cessna 172 Skyhawk (C172) automatically taxied, took off, and landed. Most recently, the company demonstrated fully automated remote landing of an even larger aircraft, the Cessna 208 Caravan (C208), capable of carrying 14 passengers. The UAVOS all-electric, tandem rotor helicopter concept consists of a five-seater passenger including the pilot cabin that can be attached to either a car or a flight module. The helicopter will be operated both manually and autonomously. The project is a part of UAVOS’ R&D efforts to explore and understand the fundamental technologies behind electric aircraft and the urban air mobility (UAM) market. The SumoAir unmanned helicopter has a tandem rotor configuration with two large horizontal rotors mounted one in front of the other. The UAV features two redundant high-lift propulsion units. Their three - bladed rotors are driven by two electric motors at around 520 rpm to ensure a low acoustic footprint. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
