The FAA is providing detailed pilot training for easier access and improved safety to Teterboro through a presentation that basically serves as pre-packaged local pilot experience available online, free of charge. We might hope to eventually see these for every airport, but Teterboro Airport is a 13-mile drive from the Empire State Building and that proximity makes it one of the busiest (and most expensive) general aviation airports in the country. The Teterboro Airport Flight Crew Briefing offers interactive graphics and a voiced briefing that presents pilots with an overview of the airport layout, its normal operations and relevant regulations, along with airport-specific safety and security procedures. Included are runway incursion hot spots and an interface that allows clickable access to the nuances of each one. Pilots are also given access to a review of frequently used air traffic control procedures, including common departures, and are briefed on the most common errors flight crews make while accessing the airport.

The presentation even details what the Air Charter Safety Foundation calls Teterboro's "best practices for aircraft lighting configurations and taxi procedures." Funded by the FAA and produced by the National Air Transportation Association, it's available online and again, it's free.
