AMA Drone Report 10.11.18: MultiGP/DRL Join Up, Hurricane Warning, EAA Support

Also: Airspace Authorization Expire?, MOSAIC Proposal, New LAANC Providers, FAA Targets UAS Violators The 2018 MultiGP Drone Racing Championship and 2019 DRL Swatch Tryouts eSports Tournament will be held together in Las Vegas, Nevada over the weekend of February 8-10, 2019. The competitions merge real-life drone racing with an eSport drone racing tournament with the best pilots in the world meeting to compete. For the first time ever, the winner of the MultiGP Drone Racing Championship will be offered a contract for the upcoming 2019 DRL season, airing on ESPN. While Hurricane Michael was bearing down on those of us in the south, the FAA took a sharp tone right from the get-go by warning drone owners and operators that they could be subject to significant fines that could exceed $20,000 if they interfered with emergency response operations in the areas affected by the storm. On September 26, The Experimental Aircraft Association sent a letter to the chairpersons and ranking members of both the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation regarding language concerning model aviation in the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018. The letter notes that although EAA “applauds the bipartisan effort of both houses to draft the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 and pass an FAA reauthorization bill before the close of this session,” EAA “join[s] the Academy of Model Aeronautics’ concern regarding an inconsistency in the language of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft in the bill, which specifically restrains model aircraft to flying at or below 400 feet above ground level in Class G airspace.” All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!

Airborne-Unmanned 10.09.18: FAA Reauthorized, MQ-9B SkyGuardian, MultiGP/DRL

Also: V-247 Vigilant UAV, ParaZero FAA Waiver, AUVSI'S Trusted Operator, Augusta Drone Company The President of the United States has signed the long-term FAA Reauthorization that was finally approved by both the House and Senate over the past several days. Not everyone is happy (least of all, the model aviation community--for good reason), but most of the truly onerous aspects put forth in the last few years, especially the push for ATC Privatization, have gone by the wayside... for now. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) completed the first flight of its second MQ-9B SkyGuardian Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) (YBC02) aircraft on September 26. The flight of the company-owned aircraft was conducted at Laguna Army Airfield in Yuma Proving Grounds. The second MQ-9B SkyGuardian gives the GA-ASI program team another aircraft to perform important development testing and demonstrations. New capabilities that weren’t available when the first prototype was completed in 2016, such as lightning protection, an upgraded avionics and software suite, and a de-icing system, have been included as part of MQ-9B’s roadmap to become the first RPA to be certified to fly in civil airspace. The 2018 MultiGP Drone Racing Championship and 2019 DRL Swatch Tryouts eSports Tournament will be held together in Las Vegas, Nevada over the weekend of February 8-10, 2019. The competitions merge real-life drone racing with an eSport drone racing tournament with the best pilots in the world meeting to compete. For the first time ever, the winner of the MultiGP Drone Racing Championship will be offered a contract for the upcoming 2019 DRL season, airing on ESPN.

Also: NetJets Global 7500, New Tower At KGSO, Dassault FalconConnect, Bent Wing Flight Services The PC-24 is taking hold across the globe... Following the TC issuance last December, Pilatus has delivered twelve aircraft to the United States, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Southern Africa. By the end of this year, the company expects 23 PC-24s will be in customer operation. The global fleet of in-service PC-24s have accumulated 1200 flight hours, with the fleet leader already clocking up over 620 flight hours. This aircraft, the first serialised production PC-24, is owned and operated by the U.S. fractional ownership company, PlaneSense. The FAA and EASA have both certified the Falcon 8X for an enhanced flight vision system capability that gives operational credit for poor visibility approaches down to 100 ft, greatly improving access to airports in bad weather. The new EFVS capability, provided through the 8X’s FalconEye combined vision system (CVS), was certified for operational use following the completion of a joint EASA/FAA certification campaign earlier this year. EFVS to 100 ft is expected to be approved for the Falcon 2000LX and Falcon 900LX shortly. Honda Aircraft Company announced the addition of a performance package for the HondaJet HA-420. The company's new Advanced Performance Modification Group (APMG) engineered the upgrade, enabling existing HondaJet owners to enhance their current aircraft with several new performance and software features. The APMG Performance Package offers current HondaJet owners the opportunity to implement Honda Aircraft Company's latest performance upgrades on their aircraft; among those are a shorter takeoff field length, an increased maximum takeoff weight and more mission capabilities.

Also: TBM 930 Charter, Bell And Yamato, 2019 WAI Scholarships, AS365 Dauphin/Universal Avionics To a number of us at ANN, Paul Allen was a friend, an inspiration, and a fellow space aficionado. Paul passed away Monday from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in Seattle. He was 65 years old. Speaking on behalf of Vulcan Inc., the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers, Stratolaunch Systems, the Allen Institute and the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Vulcan CEO Bill Hilf said, “All of us who had the honor of working with Paul feel inexpressible loss today. He possessed a remarkable intellect and a passion to solve some of the world’s most difficult problems, with the conviction that creative thinking and new approaches could make profound and lasting impact... Gulfstream has announced a second range increase for its Gulfstream G600 business jet. The aircraft will deliver 5,500 nautical miles of range at its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90, a 700-nm increase over original projections. The G600 can travel 6,500 nm at its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85. The maximum operating speed for the aircraft is Mach 0.925. Since December 2016, the five aircraft in the G600 flight-test program have accumulated more than 2,600 flight hours over more than 685 flights. Talk about being the big man on campus... Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) has delivered the first BBJ MAX airplane to a customer. The aircraft is scheduled to fly to an interior finishing center. Customers have placed orders for 20 BBJ MAX airplanes. Most recently, Seacons Trading Ltd announced in July it is purchasing a BBJ MAX 7 at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow. To commemorate the first delivery, Boeing Business Jets unveiled a new interior concept by award winning aviation design firm SkyStyle. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
