You KNOW something's wrong with the education system when people hope for disasters, fake illness, consider killing themselves, hoping they have an appointment, or hoping they're going on a trip and they're leaving on a school day. Basically, hoping for ANYTHING to get out of school.
Alenia claims success in UAV sense-and-avoid tests | Italy’s Alenia Aermacchi has successfully validated a sense-and-avoid system designed to allow the integration of unmanned air vehicles into civil airspace.
Saab 2000 - Aerospace TechnologyFLIGHT DECK The aircraft is equipped with a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 avionics suite with integrated avionics processor (IAP), an engine indication and crew alerting system (EICAS) and a traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS). The flight control systems include an Attitude Heading and Reference System (AHRS) and a Digital Air Data System (DADS).
Aerialtronics pushes forward the agenda of safe flight operations for small commercial UAVs and RPAS, developing a novel Collision Avoidance System (CAS), while implementing its Intelligent Transport System (ITS) and “virtual fence” technology as well as adhering to the “Know Before You Fly Drones” campaign.
The aircraft [HK-4455] was landing in Santa Marta after a flight from Cali when it skidded off the runway, broke through the perimeter fence, and slid into the sea while landing in heavy rain. Six of the 54 aboard were injured, none seriously.
