Meet the flight service specialists on the other side of the phone and radio during a tour of Lockheed Martin’s state-of-the-art Fort Worth Automated Flight Service Station hub during AOPA Aviation Summit.
Learn how to use flight planning apps while still accessing new safety services from briefers as well as how to create a pilot profile and register for Lockheed’s route-specific adverse condition alerting service or surveillance-enhanced search and rescue.
Pilots attending Summit can catch a free shuttle at 1 p.m. daily, Oct. 10 through 12, at the Fort Worth Convention Center, and ride to the flight service hub. Seats are limited, so sign up for the tour in Booth 1641, by the Flight Services Cessna in the convention center. The tour also will count as Wings credit for those who register in advance through the FAASTeam website. For more information about getting Wings credit, contact Bill Lamb with Lockheed Martin Flight Services.
FAA Information and Services
With solid instrument meteorological conditions extending hundreds of miles in every direction, a VFR-only pilot was stuck on top. The controller who helped him was among those honored March 4 with the Archie League Medal of Safety Award.
AOPA’s Air Safety Institute has awarded Flight Assist Commendations to 10 air traffic controllers who guided general aviation pilots to safe landings despite thunder storms, icing, mountainous terrain, and inoperative instruments and radios.
The FAA needs to be more efficient and complete critical projects, House leaders said during a hearing on FAA reauthorization.
