Dear Readers

Contrary to December 2017 January 2018 was a quiet month as regards powered flight. However, when we listen to the dicussions, the deliberations, and read all the reports and publications informing a wide audience on all aspects of future operations of drones, difficult times are ahead. Please remember: "Everything in the air not made of feather and bone should have electronic conspicuity" they say.

Besides this, the latest NPA 2018-01 on Instructions on Continuing Airworthiness (ICA) will require our full attention.
