Although business aviation is not a cause of aviation system delays, weather and other factors can pose unexpected travel challenges. If business aviation is in your planning this holiday season, it’s best to prepare for potential delays and have alternatives at the ready. “Historical volume days are always important, [as are] early filings and looking at both the national and the international landscape as a whole,” says FAA National Operations Manager Jason Rooks. “When I say that, I mean checking NOTAMs [and] understanding system impact reports. All of that gives [insights] into what’s going on.”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Janice Planten, manager, NBAA Air Traffic Services
The FAA has been working with NBAA and others to address privacy concerns with the Privacy ICAO Address program (PIA), which recently was expanded beyond the contiguous U.S. to include overwater routes.
Flight data monitoring and data sharing are important tools to help identify potential safety risks before they become serious issues. That said, many operators are uncertain about how they work, what equipment is needed and what this information can offer their operations. NBAA has developed a new, comprehensive resource to answer those and other questions.
In this special edition of NBAA Flight Plan, podcast host Rob Finfrock gets a few moments in between conference sessions with NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen to discuss the latest efforts by the association to highlight business aviation's societal benefits.
NBAA, with input from its Emerging Technologies Committee, Access Committee and Advanced Air Mobility Roundtable, recently joined with other industry partners to declare there are good reasons for the FAA not to use the term advanced air mobility in the agency's proposed revised definition of aeronautical activity.
