NBAA Offers Airspace Status Briefing
The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) this week announced releasing its National Airspace System Status Briefing (NASSB), which it bills as a "user-friendly," Web-based product providing "valuable, real-time information for anyone involved in flight operations." The NASSB is available only to NBAA members, as an extra-cost service, and gives operators an instant snapshot of domestic ATC traffic management initiatives and restrictions. Using the information provided, NBAA says operators can quickly generate information making U.S. flight operations more manageable and efficient. The NASSB was developed by the NBAA GA Desk at the FAA Air Traffic Control System Command Center and provides information on ground delay programs, ground stops, arrival and departure delays, en route constraints, reroutes and departure restrictions. An additional component includes a collaborative convective forecast product. The association has posted sample briefings on its Web site, here and here.
