FAA Safety Briefing

The FAA Safety Policy Voice of Non-commercial General Aviation

Weather Technology | March/April 2020

The March/April 2020 issue of FAA Safety Briefing focuses on the variety of tools and technology aviators can use to avoid and/or safely mitigate what we’ve dubbed as UMC, or Unfriendly Meteorological Conditions. Feature articles cover some of the FAA’s weather research work and programs, including more effective ways to convey cockpit weather imagery, icing avoidance, and the use of weather cameras. We also sit down with the new FAA Administrator, Steve Dickson, to discuss his take on general aviation safety.
