Our first story this week is about the forthcoming drone conferences in 2020 and 2021. Taking into account the current situation, DJI has decided to go virtual with Airworks 2020. And drone pilots will be glad to learn that they won't have to shell out hundreds of dollars to attend this conference. Now, you can attend this conference for just $35. It shall be interesting to see if other conferences like the FAA Symposium and CES shall follow suit by making these conferences more affordable in these trying times.
Next, we discuss how some irresponsible drone pilots have taken to skies to film protests being held in cities across the US. While we strongly condemn the sad death of George Floyd, flouting drone laws and flying recklessly is both dangerous and downright foolish. Listeners will learn how a drone flying over a protest came unnervingly close to an LAPD helicopter.
We also have some interesting news to share about the current state of the drone industry. As US-China tensions reach an all-time high, certain factions in the government are discouraging the use of DJI drones. But, can any industry incumbents really match DJI in terms of production capabilities and affordability? When the Skydio 2 came out, many in the industry (including us) were hopeful that Skydio would be able to fill DJI's rather large shoes. However, as per the latest industry reports, Skydio is finding it

On this episode of AvTalk, we see what the initial data tells us about the crash of Pakistan International Airlines flight 8303. And we sit down for a roundtable discussion about the state of the industry and where aviation is headed as the normally busy summer travel season begins.
PK8303 crash in Karachi
Pakistan International Airlines flight PK8303 crashed while attempting to landing in Karachi on 22 May. Flight 8303 was en route from Lahore when it crashed near the airport after conducting a go around and during its second landing attempt. We walk through the initial ADS-B data and the progress of the investigation so far.
Sichuan Airlines flight 8633 final report
Chinese investigators issued a final report on Sichuan Airlines flight 8633 this week. The Airbus A319’s right main windscreen ruptured and separated from the aircraft, partially pulling the first officer out of the aircraft. The aircraft diverted safely to Chengdu. The investigators found that the likely cause of incident was a damaged windscreen seal leading to water damage to the anti-ice heating wire near the windscreen, which in turn led to electrical discharge and the eventual rupture of the entire windscreen.
ICAO releases CART framework for restarting flights
ICAO’s Council’s Aviation Recovery Task Force (CART) released guidelines this week designed to help airlines and airports restart flights in safe manner. We discuss some of the basics of the guidelines and where we think there might be room for improvement.

Max talks about a rash of plane crashes in a 2-day period in which pilots lacked proficient. Many of these were landing gear collapses or gear up landings. One was a student pilot who died in a base to final stall spin, while on a long cross country flight.

Episode 27Air crash investigators Greg Feith and John Goglia have seen too often that the safety of general aviation aircraft can be compromised by lack of maintenance. Their special guest this week has an hourly cost maintenance program to address that. PistonPower™ is a comprehensive protection program for piston aircraft. Guest Remi Szymanski, Vice President for Business Development, discusses how the program works. With a fixed monthly cost, PistonPower creates a predictable maintenance budget for business and personal flying. Turbine aircraft have had programs that cover maintenance costs for a long time. Now piston aircraft can have the same type program. Listen to the episode to explore the details from John’s perspective as a wrench turner, Greg’s as a pilot, and both of their experiences as accident investigators. Viewers can also learn more at the PistonPower website, https://pistonpower.com/
