GA Pilots, Your Input Wanted
Researchers working on NextGen are looking for general aviation pilots to contribute to a study on weather technology in the cockpit. The brief online survey aims to collect information about how GA pilots use weather technology now and what options they would like to have available in the future. The data collected will help researchers at the University of North Dakota to assess user needs for different phases of flight. The UND team will report their results to the FAA to help in designing and implementing the Next Generation Air Transportation System. The survey is short and completely anonymous.

Along with UND, the University of Alaska and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University are contributing to this project, which is also exploring the best ways to implement and educate pilots on the use of in-cockpit weather technology. If you have any questions, please contact Leslie Martin, associate professor at UND.
