AMA Drone Report 02.27.17: DJI Rumors, UAV Sighting Report, Another City Ban

Mon, 2017-02-27 21:59
Also: Hover Camera Passport, Utah Drone Festival, An Early Report on AMA Expo East Generating buzz is good marketing, and DJI was doing so with a Tweet announcing new products for the Mobile World Congress 2017 -- with a date, time and location -- and a suggestive image which had the drone press speculating/drooling over what may lie ahead. And that included us. The first theory had DJI taking the wraps off a Phantom 5. The Phantom 4 was introduced last year, but speculation suggested that people who just bought a Phantom 4 might be unhappy if an upgraded drone was released too soon. There was also buzz about a possible Mavic Pro or another update for the Inspire lines. But, the doubting Thomases were right. The FAA has released an updated list of pilot, air traffic controller, law enforcement and citizen reports of potential encounters with unmanned aircraft systems. Reports of possible drone sightings to FAA air traffic facilities continued to increase during the past year. There were 1,274 such reports from February through September, compared with 874 for the same period in 2015. Although the data contains several reports of pilots claiming drone strikes on their aircraft, we must stress that to date, the FAA has not verified any collision between a civil aircraft and a civil drone. Drone paranoia rages on in the cities and towns of America... this time in Atherton, CA. The Atherton City Council has given initial approval to an ordinance that severely limits how drones can be operated in the city... which used a wide-ranging privacy argument to make its case. The ordinance says that drones cannot be operated "in a manner that violates an individual’s reasonable expectation of privacy." That mandate covers A LOT of ground, legally speaking. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!

Airborne 02.27.17: Skydive Myrtle Beach, P-51 Mustangs!, Piper Positive

Mon, 2017-02-27 19:29
Also: ANN's Infamous April 1st Edition, Giant OV-10, Thrush 510P, Aerojet Rocketdyne, FAI Air Ambulance, Daher, NASA Art Following years of egregious county misbehavior, the owner of Skydive Myrtle Beach is suing members of the Horry County Council for alleged violations of his constitutional rights under the 14th Amendment. Aaron Holly, the owner of Skydive Myrtle Beach, explained in his 160-page complaint that the council, working with the FAA, wrongfully closed his business by claiming more than 100 violations. As ANN has learned and observed, the complaint holds that no investigation has been conducted, and there is no evidence of any alleged violations. Holly also has not been charged with violating any local ordinances, nor paid any affiliated fines or penalties. RUN... do not walk... to Lakeland this April. In what may be the largest gathering of P-51 Mustangs in a decade or more ... on Wednesday, April 5th, 2017, Stallion 51 is organizing a formation arrival with a massive assembly of P-51 Mustangs at Sun 'n Fun. Following the release of GAMA's mostly disappointing Annual Industry Review, Piper CEO and GAMA chairman Simon Caldecott announced that Piper has thankfully experienced a 26.7% increase in aircraft billings for 2016. The substantial growth was driven by the certification and delivery of the new Piper flagship M600 and a 68% year over year increase of Piper Archer aircraft -- which helped drive Piper’s total billings up by nearly $32M vs 2015. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!

Airborne 02.24.17: RV-10 Suit Dismissed, 2016 GA Sales, Red Tail Legacy

Mon, 2017-02-27 17:05
Also: Falcon 9 Landing, TFR Busts, Denton Airshow, QF-16, Treasure Coast, 'Fly Safe' Campaign, Juno Mission When the news first came out, in 2015, that Van's Aircraft was sued for a considerable amount of money and that the law firm pressing the action was being VERY public about it, many feared the worst. Two years later, though, the lawsuit against the company has been dismissed. The news is pretty much all bad, and some of it is really bad. GAMA Chairman and Piper boss Simon Caldecott, announced at the GAMA “Annual Industry Review” press conference, that airplane shipments globally fell 3.9%, from 2,331 units in 2015 to 2,241 units in 2016. Airplane billings declined 14.1%, from $24.1 billion to $20.7 billion. Worldwide rotorcraft shipments fell 16.9%, from 1,036 units in 2015 to 861 units in 2016. The rotorcraft billings declined from $4.7 billion in 2015 to $3.6 billion in 2016. Airmen assigned to the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing take great pride in the heritage created for them by the Tuskegee Airmen. The legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen was born in Montgomery, Alabama, when the Tuskegee Institute’s application to conduct civilian pilot training was approved in 1939. More than 75 years later, a red-tailed fighter jet from Montgomery again flies with the 332nd. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
