It remains as the most beautiful commercial aircraft ever been in the sky... that's my opinion.

Agnès FAURY CEDIOLI's curator insight, September 9, 2013 7:28 AM

De très beaux souvenirs ! J'étais alors à Air France à la documentation technique Concorde/Airbus. Et un vol technique inoubliable vers Shanon sur ce bel oiseau. Une belle rétrospective.

Rural pilots won't be happy about the FAA's new drone rules

Rural pilots won't be happy about the FAA's new drone rules | Positive climb | Scoop.it

The FAA is preparing to release its first set of rules governing how everyone from hobbyists to movie producers to ranchers can use drones. That’s good news, in the sense that some regulation is probably better than none—what we have now—when it comes to flying machines.

The risk posed to aircraft by airborne volcanic ash is as bad as ever, but airlines are better equipped to spot and avoid trouble---and save money---than they were four years ago.

As Texas celebrates winning SpaceX spaceport, Florida regroups | Space Politics

On Monday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry confirmed what had neen widely speculated for weeks, if not months: SpaceX would establish a commercial launch site on the Gulf of Mexico near Brownsville, Texas. The state is providing about $15 million in funds to support spaceport development, although the release notes that construction will involve “$85 million in capital investment,” presumably from SpaceX.

 

The announcement was the culmination of several years of efforts by local and state officials, including Perry, to lure SpaceX to establish the launch site there. The letter noted state officials first talked with SpaceX in the spring of 2011, and Perry had since met with SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and “provided letters of support” as SpaceX worked through launch site regulatory efforts with the FAA.

Boeing to pack fliers tight on high-density 737 model

Boeing to pack fliers tight on high-density 737 model | Positive climb | Scoop.it

Already squeezed for space on many flights, economy class passengers may soon lose another two inches of legroom when the fly on no-frills airlines.

That comes after Boeing confirmed on Sunday that it's planning to offer a "modified" high-density version of its popular 737 that will seat up to 200 passengers -- 11 more than on the comparable current model of the 737. The high-density version of Boeing's 737 MAX 8 jet will be targeted to bare bones, low-cost carriers that want to squeeze as many customers as they can onto their flights.

Mark Strozier's curator insight, October 1, 2014 10:12 AM

The ability to shoot outstanding video footage, is taking a giant leap forward going into 2015.


The specs on GoPro's new Hero 4 are jaw-dropping-- UltraHD 4k video at 30 frames per second?! 1080p HD video at 120 frames per second?! WiFi & Bluetooth all in a box that weighs about as much as a Snicker's bar and priced at only $500?!


Jaw appropriately dropped.


Along with the continually improving camera technologies, drone tech is keeping pace and it's giving cinematographers options for new perspectives that up until a year or two ago were imaginable only with CGI.


To get a sample of the creative options this combination offers filmmakers and cinematographers take a look at PlexiDrone's video: http://youtu.be/hROA-vOyId4 ;

Branson Reiterates Plan to Fly By End of Year | Parabolic Arc

Branson Reiterates Plan to Fly By End of Year | Parabolic Arc | Positive climb | Scoop.it

Parabolic Arc sources say that Virgin Galactic is operating under a Dec. 31 deadline to fly Branson into space from its primary backer, aabar Investments. Virgin Galactic denies it is under any deadline from aabar, which is owned by the Abu Dhabi government.

SpaceShipTwo has flown three times using rubber-nitrous oxide engines that burned for 16, 20 and 20 seconds apiece. On the final flight, the spacecraft reached 71,000 feet after being dropped from its WhiteKnightTwo mother ship from about 50,000 feet.

Seven months have passed since that Jan. 10 flight. SpaceShipTwo has been modified to use a new nylon-nitrous oxide engine that burns smoother and will take the ship to a higher altitude. The goal is to get above 50 miles or 264,000 feet.

Airbus Thinks Big With Small Electric Plane

Airbus Thinks Big With Small Electric Plane | Positive climb | Scoop.it

Airbus Group, the international consortium that makes huge jetliners, has debuted a new kind of aircraft: a tiny, electrically powered plane called the E-Fan.

The experimental plane is a two-seater and measures a mere 19 feet in length, with a wingspan of just over 31 feet. The twin-engine E-Fan’s power comes from 120 250-volt lithium-ion polymer batteries that can move the craft at speeds up to 136 mph.

“It's a very different way of flying,” said Jean Botti, chief technical and innovation officer at Airbus Group. “Absolutely no noise, no emissions.”
