There’s a New Way to Spot Troublesome Aviation Weather

Last fall, the Collaborative Convective Forecast Product (CCFP) was automated, becoming the Computerized Convective Forecast Product, allowing the Aviation Weather Center to expand CCFP coverage to 24 hours a day, year round. As a result, a new collaborative product was needed, and after years of work the Collaborative Aviation Weather Statement (CAWS) has been implemented. CAWS can highlight specific, smaller areas of concern. Air traffic managers will be able to make more accurate decisions regarding traffic management initiatives, and CAWS will help to reduce weather related delays throughout the national airspace system, said John Kosak, a specialist with NBAA’s Air Traffic Services, who advised Members to make CAWS a part of their flight-planning routine. .
