Academy of Model Aeronautics Fun 2016

January 15, 2016

Interested in UAS ? – ( unmanned aircraft systems ) – Earlier this week ANN’s CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, attended the Academy of Model Aeronautics Expo that was held in Ontario, California. To say that Jim was like a kid in a candy store is an understatement, but he also reports there is concern about the recreational model aircraft flyer being regulated by the FAA for the first time.

Despite the fact that the more than 185,000 members of the AMA have for many years operated their model aircraft safely under AMA guidelines, they have been grouped in with drone flyers and are now required under FAA rules to register their aircraft. As Jim put it, “What is the FAA going to do next?” Typical of large aircraft fly-ins, a special operational NOTAM has been issued that addresses pilots who are flying into and out of the Sebring Regional Airport during the operation of the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo that starts next week. Of course, the only way to understand all the details of the NOTAM is to download it and study it carefully.

Final assembly of the first F-35A Adir, which means, “mighty one” in Hebrew, manufactured for Israel got underway at Lockheed Martin’s facility in Fort Worth, earlier this month. It is expected to roll out of the factory in June and be delivered to the Israeli Air Force later this year. All this — and MORE in today’s episode of Airborne!!!
