Podcast: Summer Storm Prep – 2022 Guidance from NBAA, FAA and National Weather Service

April 18, 2022

Every day, personnel at the FAA’s Air Traffic Control System Command Center in Warrenton, VA work to keep aircraft flying safely across the National Airspace System and far away from the worst of what has already been a very active thunderstorm season. “The current reroutes page [www.fly.faa.gov/] is always going to be your best bet for seeing what all the current routes and route restrictions are on any given day,” says John Kosak, CAM, with NBAA Air Traffic Services. “Nobody’s happy about [thunderstorms], but we must do what we can to keep the environment safe for everybody, and that means slowing flights down so there’s room to deviate.”

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

  • Christopher Citrola, FAA national traffic management officer
  • John Kosak, CAM, program manager, weather, NBAA Air Traffic Services
  • Brian Waranauskas, national aviation meteorologist, National Weather Service
