Getting its first electric-powered aircraft off the ground was a pretty big deal for MagniX late last year. But the company shows no signs of resting on that success, with another test flight last week of a larger prop. There’s clearly a market for this sort of operation, though we’re still a ways out from it being commonplace.

- Several Canadians are challenging their national airlines to finally follow the rules and the US DOT to actually enforce them
- SpaceX launched crew successfully to the International Space Station and it was an incredible spectacle
And plenty more. Enjoy the show!
