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!

As always, fly safe.
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.
