Airborne-Unmanned 12.11.18: NYPD UAVs!, Airobotics Waiver, National Park Service

Also: Schiebel Wins, New Generation Robot, 'Buzzy The Drone', DHS Selects PAE ISR The NYPD has unveiled a new UAS program, which will be comprised of newly acquired UAVs, and the licensed NYPD officers of the Technical Assistance Response Unit (TARU) who will operate them. The TARU provides specialized investigative equipment and tactical support to all bureaus within the NYPD, from officers on patrol to the Emergency Service Unit (ESU). The unit's expertise in audio/visual technology helps: enhance investigations through the recovery of surveillance video footage; record police action at large-scale demonstrations and arrest situations; and provide crucial live video to incident commanders during ongoing emergency situations. Just a few weeks after announcing that it had received $30 million in funding, Airobotics has now announced that it has become the first company in the United States to receive a Certificate of Waiver (CoW) from the FAA that combines three elements: flying Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) for automated UAS operations, over human beings, with a visual observer that is not required to keep a visual line of sight on the UAS. The waiver, which allows Airobotics to operate from its Remote Operations Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, will primarily be used within the mining sector, but it will also be used for other industrial facilities in the U.S. as well. The National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring Program used AeroVironment’s Quantix hybrid drone and Decision Support System (AV DSS) advanced data analytics platform to assess the environmental impact of the Woolsey wildfire. Burning over 96,949 acres, the Woolsey wildfire destroyed more than 616 park structures and consumed approximately 88% of NPS land within the recreation area. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!

AMA Drone Report 12.06.18: No Drone Zone Nonsense, FAA's 'Buzzy', Airport Probs

Also: FAA Exec Appointment, Drone Use Standards, Censys BVLOS, Woolsey Fire Recovery Drones OK... it’s getting a little out of control... Signs have been popping up saying drone flights are prohibited on trails and in parks in and around Sedona, AZ, but there is apparently no way for anyone to enforce the "No Drone Zones". The signs say drone flights are prohibited within five miles of an airport, and refers potential drone users either to the airport authority or the US Forest Service. The airport website has a link to "Report" drone flights, which are referred on to Deborah Abingdon, Sedona’s airport manager. But the FAA says that airport operators cannot ban drones, according to FAA regional spokesman Ian Gregor. Getting a drone for the holidays? The FAA's “Buzzy the Drone” will help you learn the do’s and don'ts of being a responsible drone operator and flying your new purchase safely. Too many times, the FAA hears sad stories about what happens when inexperienced flyers take their drone out for its first flight. Sometimes a nasty tree will jump right into your flight path. All too often, the drone gets scared and flies away if you let it out of your sight. And upset neighbors may knock on your door if you fly over their backyard while they’re outside. Buzzy, a whimsical four-rotor drone, can help new operators avoid being “that guy or girl.” C’mon folks... we’re MUCH better than this. Reports of unmanned aircraft (UAS) sightings from pilots, citizens and law enforcement have increased dramatically over the past two years. The FAA says it now receives more than 100 such reports each month, and the agency wants to send out a clear message that operating drones around airplanes, helicopters and airports is dangerous and illegal. Unauthorized operators may be subject to stiff fines and criminal charges, including possible jail time. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!

Airborne 12.12.18: BBJ 777X!, Lunar Landing Checklist, R66 Cargo Hook

Also: Virgin Orbit Update, FAA-Super Bowl LIII, Gone West: WASP Alma Fornal, Skydiving Hall Of Fame Could this be ANN’s next corporate aircraft? Boeing Business Jets is launching the BBJ 777X, a new Boeing Business Jet model that can fly more than halfway around the world without stopping, farther than any other business jet. Customers can choose between two models: the BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9. The BBJ 777-8 offers the longest range of 11,645 nautical miles. The BBJ 777-9 provides a larger cabin, while still offering ultra-long range of 11,000 nautical miles. This model opens up almost unlimited interior design options to ensure comfort for long distance travel. An anonymous American collector has purchased the checklist used by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin for landing on the moon. The document, signed by Aldrin, went for $62,500 at Sotheby's. The Lunar Surface Checklist traveled to the surface of the Moon 50 years ago. "It records the steps that they were to follow before they stepped out on the lunar surface," explained Sotheby's vice president and senior vice president for books and manuscripts Cassandra Hatton. But that was not the most expensive Apollo 11 artifact to go under the gavel. An unnamed American collector paid $75,000 for a Flight Plan Sheet for the mission used by Neil Armstrong. On 8 November 2018, Transport Canada approved Robinson’s R66 cargo hook installation, providing Canadian commercial lift operators with a high performance, low cost solution giving them a leg up on the competition. The optional cargo hook carries external loads up to 1200 lb., and the R66’s maximum gross weight increases from 2700 lb. to 2900 lb. The cargo hook installation allows solo flight from either front seat. Optional extra-large bubble windows enable the pilot to view the load for precision placement.
