A couple very interesting articles about the dismissal of Timberline's lawsuit against the BLM.  Wonder why Vertical didn't cover it at all this time around.  Ideally a trade magazine would cover all sides of a story

Not really that interesting.

tldr: Timberline got shut out because they didn't have civil assets to cover the contract, timberline got upset, timberline sued, timberline lost.

Using restricted aircraft for utility operations is normal in the USA however the contract stated that the aircraft had to be up to the civil standards.  There is a reason that we don't allow the use of those types for civil operations.
