The pilot of the last piston airplane based at San Francisco International Airport has sued the airport, claiming he is being pressured to move his Cessna 182 to a new home base. Courthouse News Service reports that Robert Reinheimer says in his suit that his flight privileges were illegally suspended by then-airport director John Martin for alleged safety violations. Those allegations were determined to be unfounded by the FAA. However, it’s reported that Reinheimer was not notified by the airport that the charges had been dismissed by the agency, and Martin did not respond to his request to have his privileges reinstated. Legal wrangling in a drone shootdown incident may set a national precedent. A judge is expected to determine which court should hear the case involving a drone that was shot down in Kentucky. The owner of the drone is David Boggs, whose neighbor, William Merideth, admits to shooting down Boggs' $1,800 drone. Merideth has gone so far as to dub himself the "Droneslayer." EAA is honoring five new inductees into their Sport Aviation Halls of Fame at a dinner ceremony on November 10, in the Founders’ Wing of the EAA AirVenture Museum.
