Don't waste time following the voice prompts on 800/WX-BRIEF. Get to a flight service station briefer faster with some simple short cuts from AOPA.
To help pilots, AOPA has prepared a briefing card that walks you step by step through the short-cut codes you can enter to reach a briefer in your area. AOPA handed out the cards at AOPA Expo and will insert them in the November issue of AOPA Pilot and December issue of AOPA Flight Training.
This is part of AOPA's latest effort to help pilots use Lockheed Martin's FSS system that has fallen far short of promised service levels. The association has been in daily contact with Lockheed and the FAA for months. In addition, AOPA is working with Congress to have member complaints addressed and on ways to correct the problems.
"The FSS system needs to serve pilots, and we are going to do everything possible to make sure that happens," said Andy Cebula, AOPA executive vice president of government affairs. "This card is a simple way to help while we continue to work with Lockheed, the FAA, and Congress to fix the system for our members."
