The NWS, National Weather Service, Oakland Center Weather Service Unit and their meteorologists will be there to present a very interesting and timely weather related briefing They are located in the FAA Oakland ARTCC Facility in Fremont and work closely with the ATC controller staff and management of the facility with all things weather related and their effects on Aviation and Air Traffic in the Northern California

The ZOA CWSU supports FAA ZOA/ZAK Int'l Operations airspace for aviation hazards/forecasts and special weather support for SFO airport Ground Delay Programs(GDP)/Traffic Management Initiatives(TMI). Also unique is ZAK (FAA Oakland International airspace) which encompasses all flights over the entire Pacific Ocean. This includes coordinating Oceanic SIGMETs from multiple agencies for TURB/ICE/TS and Volcanic Ash. Volcanic Ash can often impact the daily North Pacific Tracks developed by ZOA Traffic Management Unit (TMU).

This should be a great presentation given the recent weather events!

NBAA Flying Safety Awards

Deadline - Postmarked by March 1, 2017

For 60 years, NBAA’s Flying Safety Award program has brought worldwide attention to the business aircraft safety record. These awards recognize member companies for exceptional achievement in maintaining safe flying operations. Much more than a member benefit, they serve as testimony to the high degree of professionalism inherent in business aircraft operations, and as tribute to the skill of a company’s management, maintenance, pilot and support personnel teams.

NBAA encourages all eligible operating member companies and their employees to apply and gain well-deserved recognition for their outstanding safety records.

Award recipients are acknowledged by mail and during the annual NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition.
