FAA Web Site Upgraded
For years, the FAA has been building up stacks of useful information on its Web site, but trying to find that information (if you even knew it was there to be found) could be cumbersome. A fresh new redesign that went online last week aims to make it easier for pilots to find the info they need. The home page has a list of links for pilots that lead to graphic TFRS, NOTAMs, weather, and a downloadable pilot certificate application. A couple of clicks on the "aircraft" tab will take GA pilots to links about registering an aircraft and flying a vintage or surplus military aircraft, as well as an outline of information available from the Small Airplane Directorate. We do wish those tabs on the home page came with drop-down menus, though, for easier navigation. Maybe next time.
