November 19–The November/December 2012 issue of FAA Safety Briefing, posted on the FAA website at http://www.faa.gov/news/safety_briefing/, explores the significance of general aviation on a global scale and focuses on several tools and resources that can help you operate safely beyond our borders.
Among the articles in this internationally-themed issue include: a review of overseas flying requirements, how to master the language of aviation, island-hopping in the Caribbean, and an inside look at how the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) can impact your flying. In addition, the issue’s Checklist department (pg. 27) explores the International Flight Information Manual (IFIM), a useful planning tool for flights outside the United States.
The issue also contains information on Aviation Maintenance Technician career opportunities with “A License to Skill” (pg. 24), and how to make sure you’re using approved parts for your aircraft in Nuts, Bolts, and Electrons (pg. 28).
