CONFIDENT UAS DEADLINES WILL BE MET
Acting FAA Administrator
Michael Huerta was long on optimism but short on specifics in a pointed
Q & A session at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems
International conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday. The FAA is under
congressional order to integrate most UAVs into the national airspace
system by 2015 (2014 for UAVs weighing less than 55 pounds) and Huerta
told a room full of people with a lot riding on those deadline the
agency will get it done. "I am very optimistic that we will get there,"
Huerta said. "Rest assured that the FAA will fulfill its statutory
obligations to integrate unmanned aircraft systems." Just how it's going
to crunch that deadline is not something Huerta wanted to elaborate on,

TEST CRASH MAY AFFECT RELENTLESS
The crash of a decades-old
Bell 414 helicopter in Texas on Tuesday could have an impact on the
development of Bell's latest high-tech helicopter, the 525 Relentless.
The 414 is a technology demonstrator for Bell's Xworx development center
in Arlington, Texas, and was apparently testing gear for the Relentless
when it went down about 30 miles from Arlington. Both pilots escaped
injury after making an emergency landing in a cotton field after
reporting tail rotor problems. The aircraft flipped on its side on

WILL BUILD ICON COMPONENTS
Cirrus Aircraft will build "a
significant portion" of the composite airframe components for the Icon
A5 light sport aircraft, the two companies announced on Monday. Cirrus
will add up to 60 jobs over the next 18 months or so to handle the extra
work, Cirrus spokesman Todd Simmons told AVweb. "It could be even
more," Simmons said. Composite component production will begin by the
end of this year at the Cirrus facility in Grand Forks, N.D., and the
first production aircraft will be completed next summer, according to
the news release. Icon expects the effort to produce about 50 airframes

AID HELO LANDING
A medical helicopter broke a skid in flight
when it hit a cellphone tower early Sunday morning, but the crew landed
safely at San Antonio International Airport after firefighters built a
pile of mattresses to take the place of the missing skid. The Bell 407
helicopter, with three crew and a patient on board, was headed for the
San Antonio Military Medical Center about 3:30 a.m. when the accident
occurred. "[The pilot] knew if he landed, that he would crash,"
firefighter Kevin Campbell told the San Antonio Express-News. "He
suggested mattresses, and I told Engine 23 to grab three or four
mattresses from the dorm." They also brought 45-pound weights from the
firehouse gym to hold the mattresses down. Campbell said the
helicopter crew hovered for a short time before attempting the landing.
"It was tense for a little bit," he said. But the helicopter landed
safely, and nobody was hurt. "It worked great," Campbell said.

FLIGHT TRIAL -- DYNON'S NEW D1 POCKET PANEL
It was only a matter
of time before someone stuffed a full-up EFIS into a portable box the
size of drink coaster. It didn't exactly take Dynon very long to get
around to it, either. In this video, AVweb takes a tour of the
new D1 Pocket Panel, and while it's not really a full EFIS, it's close
enough a clever combination of MEMS gyro and GPS aiding.
