Airborne 11.13.19: Mooney Woes, Naval Museum Eviction, 737MAX Update

The Mooney factory in Kerrville, TX is currently closed, and all of its employees have been furloughed. A call to Mooney resulted in a recorded message saying that the employees had been furloughed. A post on the Mooneyspace.com indicated that the employees had been furloughed for a week and told to return to work a week from Monday. No other details were made available. There is no indication of the furlough on the company website. The company cut production and laid off some 60 employees in 2008, citing a weak economy and high fuel prices. The company continued to clear its backlog of aircraft, but no new airplanes were produced. Citing concerns over "general liability coverage" and "fluid spill violations" at Kalaeloa Airport, the Hawaii State Transportation Airports Division has i

AMA Drone Report 11.14.19: DJI Drone-To-Phone, Drone Corridor, Drone Workshop

Also: NOTAM Data Optimization Summit, CASA Warns Drone Pilots, Drones Reveal Iceland Glaciers, SeaWorld Drone Show

Well... we knew this was coming... DJI is now demonstrating a direct drone-to-phone, Wi-Fi based solution to remotely identify airborne drones. DJI’s remote identification solution, developed in collaboration with industry stakeholders and regulators, broadcasts information from drones directly to off-the-shelf mobile phones using existing Wi-Fi protocols. Using a simple app, anyone within radio range of the drone can receive that signal and learn the location, altitude, speed and direction of the drone, as well as an identification number for the drone and the location of the pilot. A state supported 50-mile unmanned traffic management drone corridor, which runs from Central New York to the Mohawk Valley has been completed. The first-in-the-nation corridor is the most advanced

Airborne 11.08.19: Epic Certified, Starliner Abort Test, DeLand Showcase

Also: Drone Operating Standards, New UK Regs, EAA Wright Brothers Banquet, Air Methods Troubles

The FAA has granted type certification to Epic Aircraft for its E1000 all carbon fiber aircraft design, concluding a rigorous seven-year program that the company says will establish a new industry standard for performance, price and ramp appeal in the personal aircraft marketplace. Epic has over 80 confirmed E1000 reservations from around the US, as well as Canada, Mexico, Central/South America, Europe, Russia, South Africa and Australia. One of the three parachutes designed to return the Starliner space capsule to Earth failed to deploy during Monday's pad abort test, but NASA officials said the system was designed to work with just two. The test was designed to verify each of Starliner’s systems will function not only separately, but in concert, to protect astronauts by carrying them safely away

Airborne-Unmanned 11.12.19: Drone Delivery $$, UK Regs, Alaska BVLOS

UPS Flight Forward Inc. (UPSFF) and CVS Pharmacy Inc. have successfully completed the first revenue-generating, residential drone deliveries of medical prescriptions from a CVS pharmacy to customers in Cary, North Carolina. One of the people on the receiving end of these landmark deliveries was a CVS customer with limited mobility, which makes it hard for them to make the trip to the store to pick up their prescription. Utilizing a Matternet M2 UAS, the flights launched from a CVS store in Cary. Once the UAS reached its destinations, it lowered the packages to the ground using a cable and a winch while hovering about 20 feet over the properties. The UK CAA has introduced a requirement for drone operators to register their aircraft, and the process includes an online test. The registration is about
