    A robot pilot is learning to fly. It has passed its pilot’s test and flown its first plane, but it has also had its first mishap too.
    Unlike a traditional autopilot, the ROBOpilot Unmanned Aircraft Conversion System literally takes the controls, pressing on foot pedals and handling the yoke using robotic arms. It reads the dials and meters with a computer vision system.


    The robot can take off, follow a flight plan and land without human intervention. ROBOpilot is a drop-in system meaning that the pilot’s seat is removed and replaced with the robot.


    ROBOpilot has passed the Federal Aviation Administration’s Practical Test for piloting light aircraft and carried out its first flight on August 9 in Utah. A few weeks later it also had its first incident where the robot was damaged, although the extent of the damage is not known.


    The system was developed by US-based DZYNE Technologies as an easy way to make any aircraft autonomous. At present, turning an aircraft into a drone can be lengthy and expensive.
    A recent conversion of US military F-16 fighter jets into drones cost more than a million dollars each. ROBOpilot can be inserted into any aircraft and just as easily removed afterwards to return it to human-controlled operation.

    An American Airlines mechanic was arrested Thursday on a sabotage charge accusing him of disabling a navigation system on a flight with 150 people aboard before it was scheduled to take off from Miami International Airport earlier this summer.
    The reason, according to a criminal complaint affidavit filed in Miami federal court: Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a veteran employee, was upset over stalled union contract negotiations.

    Around 17,000 passengers were stranded overnight at Tokyo's Narita Airport, an official said Tuesday, after it took a direct hit from a powerful typhoon that caused transport chaos throughout the capital.
    The typhoon caused more than 100 flights to be scrapped and road and rail links to the airport were also badly affected, leaving many with no transport options to the city -- 70 kilometres (45 miles) to the west.
    Airport spokesman Kei Miyahara told AFP that a total of 16,900 were stuck at the airport at midnight.

    No problems. Just smaller. And now with two types of aircraft in ORD, the routes we fly will be split between the two. So less flying options on the 777 that we have now. And I won't be as senior, so crappier schedule.

    Facebook of the Sky: Airbus Tests Program to Track Everything You Do During Flights

    https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/...uring-flights/

    LUCAS NOLAN 13 Sep 2019

    Airbus is reportedly testing a new digital platform on its A350-900 test plane which would monitor every passenger action, from chosen meal preferences to in-flight purchases and even bathroom habits.

    Business Insider reports that the aviation giant Airbus announced this week that it has started in-flight trials of its newest cabin technology which will connect passengers and crew to different elements of the plane such as seats, cargo, and bathrooms. Airbus unveiled its plans for its Connected Experience at the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) Expo last year.

    The platform links real-time information generated from cabin components such as meal trolleys and overhead bins to passengers and crew members on the flight in an effort to create a more personalized experience. Of course, all of this information is digitally traceable and just another example of modern companies collecting mass amounts of personal data from its customers.

    Airbus stated that the data collected from the platform will be uploaded to the “Skywise” cloud service, an open data platform developed by Airbus. The firm claims that the platform provides significant benefits to flight crews and will allow them to access passenger information such as meal and seat preferences more easily. Airbus claims that this will provide a more personalized travel experience for passengers while airlines will be able to utilize cabin equipment trends to perform “predictive maintenance” on the most used facilities on the plane.

    Ingo Wuggetzer, Airbus’s vice president of cabin marketing, said at the aviation trade show in Los Angeles this week that the technology could help flight crew to determine if a passenger in the lavatory may need assistance. The firm plans to roll out the technology on A321 planes in 2021, and its larger A350 series in 2023. Wuggetzer commented on the new system stating: “It’s not a concept, it’s not a dream: It’s reality.”

    Panic in the sky: Delta flight from Atlanta plunges nearly 30,000 feet

    https://www.wsbtv.com/news/local/pan...feet/987851866

    By: Justin Wilfon

    Delta flight from Atlanta plunges nearly 30,000 feet

    ATLANTA - A Delta Air Lines pilot had to make a rapid, controlled descent of nearly 30,000 feet after getting an alarm on an Atlanta flight.

    Delta told Channel 2 Action News that while flying to Fort Lauderdale Wednesday night, pilots learned of a depressurization issue. The pilots deployed oxygen masks for the passengers and made the "controlled descent."

    Flight 2353 diverted to Tampa where it landed safely.

    Passengers described panic as they grabbed for oxygen masks.

    "Air masks, the oxygen masks dropped from the top of the plane. Chaos sort of ensued amongst the passengers," passenger Harris Dewoskin said.

    Dewoskin snapped pictures during what he described as a panic on board.

    "One of the flight attendants, I believe, grabbed the intercom and was just repeatedly over the intercom stating, ‘Do not panic. Do not panic,' but obviously it's a hectic moment so the passengers around me a lot of people were kind of hyperventilating, breathing really hard," Dewoskin said.

    Another passenger said he was so scared by what was happening, he told his family he loved them and hugged his son.

    "Life is fragile like. There was a scary 60 to 90 seconds where we really didn't know what was going on. At 15,000 feet in the air, it's a scary moment for sure," Dewoskin said.

    Delta said the aircraft is being evaluated by maintenance technicians.

    Buses were used to take customers to Fort Lauderdale from Tampa last night.

    Delta Air Lines said it apologized to everyone on that plane and said the plane diverted to Tampa "out of an abundance of caution."

    Nairobi lawmaker wants to put an end to farting on airplanes


    https://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/ny-nairobi-lawmaker-stop-farting-on-airplanes-20190912-wknbvyysmrc3bgq6onrogiwm64-story.html


    On Sept. 11, a Kenyan lawmaker put forth a plan to end what she considers a big problem — mile-high flatulence.


    Range Constituency representative Dr. Lilian Gogo of Nairobi called for resolution to people passing gas in airplane cabins during a parliamentary debate Wednesday regarding the National Assembly Committee on Transport, Public Works and Housing, according to Nairobi News.


    “There is one irritant that is often ignored, and this is the level of farting within the aircraft," Gogo said. “There are passengers who literary irritate fellow passengers by passing bad smell and uncomfortable fart. If there is anyone given irritant that makes people fight on board, it is the fart, it is terrible within the plane.”


    When pressed by another member of parliament on how exactly Gogo would implement such reform, she said it starts with staff training.




    “We need special training on aircraft crew so that they provide medicines like bicarbonate of soda to passengers after meals and drinks have been served,” Gogo reportedly answered. “We should also have paramedics, who are trained in basic first aid included in the international and local flights.”


    [More News] More than 30,000 sign petition calling for Oxford English Dictionary to remove sexist words »

    Gogo told fellow legislators that if she’s the only one among them who’s encountered this problem, they should consider themselves “very lucky.” The longer the flight, she argued, the worse the problem.


    “We cannot be secure on board when the other passengers are experiencing discomfort,” she said. “Farting and flatulence is done progressively and can be contained.”


    Gogo also suggested limiting alcohol consumption on flights could amount to less cheese-cutting as well.

    ‘Someone Locked Themselves In The Bathroom’; San Francisco United Flight Diverted To Denver

    https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/20...san-francisco/

    September 26, 2019 at 7:15 amFiled Under:Bathroom, Diverted, Flight, Jennifer Gettman, San Francisco, San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco News, SFO, United Airlines

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — We have all experienced airline delays, but Jennifer Gettman and her fellow passengers on United Airlines Flight 1554 have quite a doozy to tell after their flight to San Francisco was diverted because someone got locked in the plane’s bathroom.

    The incident took place as the flight was making its way to San Francisco from Washington on Wednesday night. Somewhere over the middle of the country, Gettman noticed a commotion up near the front of the plane.

    Then the pilot came on the microphone.

    “The pilot announced, ‘In case you guys haven’t heard the rumor, we are going to be landing in Denver because someone locked themselves in the bathroom’,” she said.

    “And of course we’re not going to make her stay in the bathroom until San Francisco,'” the pilot added.

    The plane made an unscheduled landing at Denver International Airport without incident. The Denver Fire Department was called around 7 p.m. to help the woman stuck in the bathroom. No one was injured.

    “Fire, police, someone had a big pick-axe thing,” Gettman told KPIX 5 after her flight arrived in San Francisco well after 11 p.m. “They managed to get the door open after about 10 minutes. Everyone clapped, the woman came out, and they all felt very bad for her. And she was safe, so that’s good.”

    Taylor Kimber was also on the flight.

    “Well folks it’s never a dull moment on @united, we have to make an “emergency landing” in Denver because a passenger got stuck in the bathroom,” she tweeted. “You can’t make this up…also the Wi-Fi is crappy and there is no way for me to charge my phone, happy travels.”
