As requested, a translation of the message in Czech at the end of the TWR recording:

[after TVS1200: Vacate via Papa, Sky Travel 1200]
TWR: 1200, just for information, a drone was reported on final of runway 12, so I had to give a go-around to the aircraft behind you and it would be too close, so vacate to Papa.

On 2016-05-06, after 08:41Z, a drone sighting on the final of RWY 12 on Prague Airport (LKPR/PRG) caused the TWR controller to abort the takeoff of TVS1200 (B738) and order a go-around for landing LZB301 (E190). Four other aircraft (CSA961, CSA505, and DHL6HX, BEL2WB) were put into holds for about 10 minutes until the situation was resolved.

Attached TWR communication with the rejected takeoff and the go-around, and (edited) APP with holding (and a bit impatient) BEL2WB.

 sad  Very sad.  I do not think that ATC did anything wrong.  They in fact tried to help.  I believe the pilot was perhaps too casual about the situation.  He had an absolute emergency and should have stayed VFR if at all possible.  With 2 hours of fuel remaining, he probably could have landed VFR.  Hartford wasn't too bad at 1,600', but he'd have to descend through the clouds to get there and that could have been a problem. 

Vacuum systems suck!!!  Now, with the $900 Stratus there is NO excuse for anyone not to have a digital system.  I have dual GTN750's and dual G500's, plus an L3 digital backup artificial horizon and just started trying the Stratus 2 just for fun and I'm blown away with how good it is compared to my very expensive panel.  I believe it would have saved this poor guy's life.

Basic equipment that every pilot should have: Digital ADHRS of some sort - could be ForeFlight on an iPad with Stratus and a floating ePERB.  Total cost: 2 to 3 hamburger runs or around $1,200 (not including the iPad as everyone has that already). 

The FAA was unbelievable slow in approving backup artificial horizons to replace the 100 year old turn and bank indicator (Sperry won the Colliers Trophy for inventing it in 1916).  Now, perhaps they should move fast to mandate that all pilots have some sort of digital back up.  Time has come.

A couple of guys I work with knew the pilot and I was kind of wondering. Isn't this whole vacuum pump system kind of antiquated? Instead of ADS-B being the big priority why couldn't it be to retrofit all aircraft that use a vacuum pump system to something electronic with a battery backup. I'm thinking and Ipad or even Iphone with the proper app could have save these lives. Foreflight with the synthetic vision option would have been a game changer in this one.
