Wisk’s new eVTOL air taxi designed for FAA certification process

Wisk, the Boeing-backed developer of electric takeoff and landing (eVTOL) air taxis, has unveiled its sixth-generation passenger aircraft it calls the “first self-flying, all-electric, four-passenger… candidate for type certification” from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). That claim to precedence appears based largely on Wisk’s eVTOL conception of its future air taxi operating autonomously while monitored by ground-based obervers. That […]

Is Russia preparing to target vital Norwegian energy exports to Europe?

For all the recent talk that Russian President Vladimir Putin might use nuclear weapons to hold onto Ukrainian territory, Russia may have already begun hybrid warfare against Norway and northern Europe, especially Germany, to exploit Europe’s energy needs over the coming winter.

Is THIS the Most Versatile Aircraft Design? #drone #droneday « Adafruit Industries – Makers, hackers, artists, designers and engineers!

Very clever design from Nicholas Rehm. This tricopter has many modes. Taking off, hovering and forward flight all use different methods. In this video Rehm goes through the forward flight, which actually acts more like an airplane than a spinning drone. In part 1 of this series, we explored this unique drone concept and demonstrated […]

Austria Integrates Drones and Air Taxis GOF 2.0

Project GOF 2.0 Integrated Urban Airspace is designed to demonstrate how drone traffic and air taxis can be succesfully integrated with manned aircraft in Europe.    A series of test flights in Austria last month marked a milestone for the project, highlighting the need for integration between drone traffic control systems and air traffic control.

Scottish Water Using Drone to Reduce Carbon Emissions #drone #droneday « Adafruit Industries – Makers, hackers, artists, designers and engineers!

Scottish Water recently shared that they were using drones and lasers to survey sewers, particularly in areas where traditional survey methods can’t reach, in hopes of yielding a more accurate view of the sewers’ condition. This will, in turn, make the sewers more resilient, improve Scottish Water’s service to customers, and reduce the risk of […]
