WSI Joins Jeppesen As FAA-Certified Commercial Online Weather Provider
WSI Corporation this week announced it had received FAA certification for its Internet-based weather and NOTAM delivery system, WSI Pilotbrief Online. The service's certification is under the FAA’s Qualified Internet Communications Provider (QICP) program, which means that WSI Pilotbrief Online meets the agency's standards in areas like reliability, security and accessibility. The WSI service joins one offered by Jeppesen as the only two commercially available QICP-certified providers. One other provider is the FAA's own, internal, NAS Aeronautical Information Management Enterprise System, which is used at the agency's Herndon, Va., Air Traffic Control System Command Center. According to the FAA, two other applications for QICP certification from commercial vendors are pending.
