FAA Debuts Data Initiative At Sun ‘n Fun


“We have the data,” says the FAA, and they are looking for your ideas about how you can use it. The FAA wants to know what kinds of aeronautical data pilots would like access to in the cockpit, and what kind of data developers need for use in creating aviation products. “Our goal is to help industry be in a position to create innovative products and technologies that improve safety and efficiency,” FAA Deputy Administrator Mike Whitaker said in a forum at Sun ‘n Fun this week.

The FAA invited interested parties to take a survey or participate in an online forum to generate ideas about how they can work with FAA data. Interested individuals also can email the FAA directly at [email protected].
