Podcast: What You Need to Know About TALPA and Winter Operations

Nov. 9, 2020

First implemented in late 2016, the Takeoff And Landing Performance Assessment (TALPA) offered a significant step forward in providing pilots with accurate information about runway conditions and contamination. Industry experts are now working to further refine this valuable tool and educate business aviation pilots about its benefits. “It’s important that we incorporate TALPA into our operations and training,” said Rich Boll, chair of the Airspace, Air Traffic and Flight Technologies Working Group of the NBAA Access Committee. “The increased availability of operational performance data hopefully will bring it more into the training side.”

In this episode of NBAA’s Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Rich Boll, chair of the Airspace, Air Traffic and Flight Technologies Working Group of the NBAA Access Committee
  • Ben Kohler, Gulfstream G650 captain for a Part 91 operator and a member of the NBAA Safety Committee
  • Brian Lewis, director of operations for Centennial Airport (APA) near Denver, CO
