Flight Service Improvements
Director of Lockheed Martin Flight Services, Jim Derr, spoke with AVweb Thursday to discuss new tools rolled out this week to aid pilots in their flight planning and flight plan filing through AFSS.com. The web portal offers pilots the ability to create profiles based on the aircraft they fly, routes of flight and frequent destinations. It also offers a free Adverse Condition Alerting Service (ACAS) that can provide a pilot with warnings if conditions arise (including, among other things, TFRs and severe weather) that affect his or her route of flight.
