TWEB and TIBS in Alaska to Sunset

As part of FAA efforts to modernize and streamline service delivery, Flight Service will discontinue the Transcribed Weather Broadcast (TWEB) and Telephone Information Briefing Service (TIBS) in Alaska, effective January 1, 2020.

The TWEB is a continuous broadcast of aeronautical and meteorological information over a limited network of Very High Frequency Omni-Directional Range (VORs) and Non-Directional Beacons (NDBs) across Alaska. A similar broadcast service, the Hazardous Inflight Weather Advisory Service, known as HIWAS, is being discontinued in the contiguous United States (CONUS).

TIBS is a continuous telephone recording of meteorological information that pilots can access without going through a Flight Service specialist. TIBS was discontinued in the CONUS in September 2018.

A notice announcing the FAA�s intent to discontinue TWEB will be published in the Federal Register later this month. Please contact Flight Service on our feedback email if you have any questions at 9-AWA-ATO-SYSOPS-FS@faa.gov.
