Do you have an opinion about the FAA's current technology for disseminating Notam information? If you do, and if you can be in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Jan. 10, then the FAA wants your input. A one-day focus group for general-aviation pilots will be held to gather feedback on the current Notam system and suggestions for the Notam System Update, now in the works. American Institutes for Research, an independent research organization, is coordinating the stakeholder input for the FAA, and they are hoping to learn how GA pilots use Notams now, what they like and don't like about the system, and what changes they would like to see. The GA pilots' input will be considered by the FAA along with input from airline pilots, airline dispatchers, and military pilots. The meeting will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1000 Thomas Jefferson Street NW. Brett Brunk of the FAA Aeronautical Information Management group will give a briefing on the current status of the project. Registration is free and is open until Tuesday, Jan. 6. Space is limited, so sign up now.
