Airborne 01.28.15: AMA Steps Up, AirAsia Stall Warnings, Obama Wants Carbon Cuts

Also: Ridiculous Arkansas Regs Proposed, Tecnam Juggernaut, New EC135 T2+ Training Helo, NBAA Joins 'Know Before You Fly', Wipaire Grand Opening, AirVenture SkyDive Record

As the media hype continues to grow regarding the occurrence of a small unmanned aerial system landing on the White House lawn, Bob Brown, President of the Academy of Model Aeronautics, sent a letter to FAA administrator Huerta indicating AMA’s continued interest in working with the FAA to resolve UAV issues. In Brown’s letter, he said in part, that the “AMA has always believed that the best, and perhaps the only, way to successfully manage the recreational community is through a community-based set of safety guidelines and the combined efforts of the FAA and AMA.” An investigator on the team working to determine what happened to AirAsia Fight 8501 says that the Cockpit Voice Recorder captured the sound of stall

Airborne 01.27.15: USCG Rescue!, Two Eagles Over Pacific, UAV v White House

Also: Hartzell/Red Bull, GA Coalition, Aero-Calendar, Commemorative Air Force, Sarah Brightman To ISS, Hot Air Balloon Endurance Record

The pilot of a single engine Cirrus SR22 aircraft that was being ferried across the Pacific Ocean reportedly ran into fuel transfer problems short of the Hawaiian Islands, Sunday and realized that he was going to come up short--and notified the Coast Guard. Subsequently, the pilot ultimately ran out of fuel some 253 miles northeast of Maui, Hawaii and deployed the BRS-designed parachute recovery system to ditch the aircraft. Troy Bradley and Leonid Tiukhtyaev departed Japan for the United States in a gas filled balloon named the Two Eagles on Saturday, January 24. Their plan is to cross the Pacific to the West Coast of the North American continent, but where they will reach North America depends on the winds aloft. When first reports emerged yesterday that a small Quadcop

Airborne 01.26.15: Pirker Settles w/FAA, Harrelson's Polar Journey, FAA Sued

Also: Airborne Unlimited Under The Weather (In More Ways Than One), House GA Caucus, New CubCrafters Boss, NAB Featuring UAVs, House Checks FAA Cert Processes, FAA Goes Off On Sleep Apnea... Again

A quick caveat... Ashley is REALLY under the weather and the entire ANN crew is traveling this week/scattered all over the known universe... which required some highly imaginative substitute tomfoolery to take Ashley's place for a day or two. So Jim Campbell steps in, where he's stuck in the middle of a snowstorm in the boonies of Indiana, in a hotel room with really lousy net access. But, as always, we persevered (ANN's specialty--no matter how great the odds). The results are acceptable, but let's just say that Ashley will NEVER have to worry about Jim competing for her job. With luck, we can get her back to work in a day or two and quit subjecting you to that ugly Jim guy...

Airborne 01.23.15: Google/SpaceX Bucks, Pet Aero-Rescue, Return of the P-3?

Also: Disruptive Innovation, V22 Ospreys, USAF Lets Bluebook Loose, Dawn and Ceres, FAASTeam Virtual Safety Stand Down

As SpaceX’s Elon Musk pushes ahead on his development of rocket and delivery systems to supply the International Space Station, he is also looking at finding a way to provide high-speed Internet communications for the entire world. If that sounds like an ambitious plan… it is…and it’s reported that Google and Fidelity seem to agree to the tune of $1 billion. General aviation comes to the rescue. More than 200 dogs and cats were flown from Greenville Airport in Alabama to various locations in Florida last Saturday in an effort to find new homes for the animals. Called the "Plots N Paws Sunshine Flyway", the effort was coordinated by pilots Devon and Jill Barger. It involved 15 Florida planes and pilots working together with 22 sending rescue organizations in Alaba
