Airborne 09.18.19: Draco's Demise, Redbird Skyport Shutdown, tailBeacon STC

A PZL-104 Draco Turbine Wilga belonging to Mike Patey was substantially damaged departing from Reno-Stead Airport (KRTS) in Nevada Monday. The airplane ground looped during its takeoff roll at KRTS. The pilot was attempting to depart before a weather front arrived at the airport. Winds were picking up. He said the left wing lifted during takeoff and the aircraft swerved off the right side of the runway, coming down hard and causing a wing to collapse. The aircraft is an extensively modified PZL-104 Wilga 2000 airframe with a PT6A-28 turbine engine, redesigned wings. control surfaces and landing gear. This was a bit of a shock on first notice... but after consideration, maybe not so much. The fairly well-known Redbird Skyport FBO of San Marcos, TX, has shut down, as of September 14th according to Redbird&r

AMA Drone Report 09.19.19: Flts Over People, Women & Drones, China UAV Ban?

OK... this episode is loaded with a lot of regulatory stuff... so strap in and hang on... Since Part 107 came into effect in the summer of 2016, UAS operators in the United States have attempted to figure out how to get FAA approval to operate over people. These attempts had very limited success as thousands of waiver applications were rejected. All that changed this past June. Hensel Phelps, a general contractor out of Colorado, successfully secured a 107.39 for operations over people using the new ParaZero SafeAir + ASTM Professional Kit. The ASTM compliant SafeAir System broke through the waiver barrier and has proven to be the only truly scalable solution for operations over people. In the 3 months since the Hensel Phelps waiver, a total of 20 waivers for operations over people have been approved!

Airborne 09.16.19: Wagstaff Mishap, SPA Girls In Aviation Day, Flight Design

Also: New Stemme CEO, Airline Bankruptcy, Avemco Executives, Director Of Langley Research Center

No one in aviation is immune to having to deal with mechanical issues... not even our good friend and Champion aerobatic pilot, Patty Wagstaff, who just had to deal with a sudden issue with her beloved Bonanza -- which, unfortunately got dinged up pretty good... but Patty and her fellow pilot are OK. The famed air-show pilot was involved in an incident Wednesday in which her 1958 Beech K35 airplane was involved in a runway excursion and flipped over onto its back, according to local authorities. Local media made it sound like a massive accident, but the truth is simple... a mechanical failure put the aircraft off to the side of a runway, where it wound up inverted. Where is the next generation of pilots coming from? Well, with aviation currently being over 90% male, we hope that it will have a more equ
