The third aircraft in the Cessna Citation Longitude flight test program recently completed its first flight. Test pilots Corey Eckhart and UJ Pesonen, along with flight test engineer Mike Bradfield, successfully tested various systems throughout the one-hour and 40-minute flight. The aircraft will be used in the program for avionics and systems development, as well as collecting flight simulator data. The company has started assembly line flow in the company’s east campus Plant IV manufacturing facility, with the first four production Longitude aircraft currently in progress.

The Canadian government has recently released new regulations for recreational drone operators that carry hefty penalties for violators... Even more so than those here in the US.

The rules also prohibit flight in controlled or restricted airspace, within about 5.6 miles of a forest fire, or anywhere the aircraft could interfere with police or first responders. Positing that we need anti-drone instruments, the folks of the TU Delft Micro Air Vehicle Lab (MAVLab) will

The new rules apply to aircraft weighing between about half a pound and 77 pounds being flown non-commercially. Under the rules, recreational drones may not be flown higher than 90 meters (about 295 feet) above the ground; closer than 75 meters (about 245 feet) from buildings, vehicles, vessels, animals, people/crowds; and closer than 9 kilometers (about 5.6 miles) from the center of any "aerodrome" ... defined as anywhere that aircraft take off and land.

Writing in The Hill, former AOPA president and CEO Craig Fuller, now a consultant on aviation issues, says that spinning
