During AOPA Aviation Summit, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA) has been holding presentations and question-and-answer sessions at the exhibit hall’s “Controller’s Corner.” The Nov. 7 forum, titled “From Takeoff to Touchdown,” emphasized some new procedures, pet peeves, a few reminders, and a review of common goofs. Here are some notable samples involving IFR operations at towered airports.
Dale Wright, NATCA’s sirector of safety and technology, wound up the session by referring pilots to www.natca.com for answers to any questions that pilots may have about air traffic control procedures and related issues.
Nextant Aerospace, adding a remanufactured King Air to its remanufactured Hawker 400 offering, says the King Air (Nextant G90XT) will fly early next year.
Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of airports and state advocacy, brought Indiana aviation community members up to date on the association’s initiatives.
Elbit Systems has upgraded infrared systems that see through darkness and weather for nearly visual landings and takeoffs, as well as taxi operations.
