Despite the FAA headquarters " general notice" issued Friday reopening flight service stations to walk-in pilot briefings, 14 of the 61 facilities still remain closed to pilots. AOPA has lobbied to reopen all FSS facilities, which had been closed to the public since the September 11 attacks. Two FSS facilities (Gainesville and St. Petersburg, Florida) are still closed to the public because of ongoing construction. Other facilities are citing security concerns or local management decision to remain off-limits to "over the counter" briefings. AOPA is continuing to press the FAA to reopen all facilities to walk-in pilot briefings. (See the current status of specific flight service stations.)
