New Advisory Standardizes Non-Towered Airport Flight Operations for All Users


As an added safety enhancement for the general aviation community, the NBAA Access Committee has worked with the other members of the FAA's Aeronautical Charting Forum to standardize traffic pattern altitudes and procedures at airports without operating control towers. This effort has culminated with the new Advisory Circular (AC) and replaces two previous advisories. "No matter what a pilot flies they should read this AC, because it clearly presents the standards for operating at a non-towered airport," said Richard Boll, a member of the NBAA Access Committee who participated in the ACF effort.

What Does it Take to Fly a 'Climb Via' SID?


Last week's NBAA Flight Plan podcast looked at the phraseology "climb via," which has caused some confusion since it was introduced in 2014. This week, the podcast examines the practical implications of flying a climb via departure. "NextGen is all about fitting more aircraft in a smaller airspace and the intent of the procedure designers, both SIDs and STARs, is that they be auto flown," said NBAA Access Committee member Keith Gordon, who participated on the team that led to climb via implementation. "However, we have to be trained, we have to be skilled enough that when something happens. whether a controller has to intervene, that we have the ability to do it."

Business Aviation Insider: Vetting Supplemental Lift Providers


It's inevitable that at some point a company's business aircraft will be out of service. When that happens, business trips still need to be taken, so operators often look for supplemental lift. "When you look at the provider through the lens of how your passengers will view the experience, you should be able to easily determine if they [the service provider] will be able to replicate what your passengers are accustomed to," said Terry Lascher, director of operations, L.J. Aviation. Read more here:: Business Aviation Insider: Vetting Supplemental Lift Providers… Read more ...

UAS Operators Must Understand What Commercial Use Entails


Ever-expanding use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in commercial operations has brought with it the unwelcome matter of recreational operators flying drones for compensation. Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations requires that commercial operators flying UAS weighing less than 55 pounds pass an initial knowledge test for certification. Recreational UAS operators are not required to hold that certification but are prohibited from operating a drone for commercial use. "This is different than the long-held distinction between Part 91 and Part 135 operations," explained Sarah Wolf, NBAA's senior manager of security and facilitation. "Not only are for-hire drone operations considered commercial under Part 107, any not-for-hire drone operations in support of a business are considered commercial as well."
