From tips on truly understanding the airspace in which we fly, to suggestions on how to effectively communicate with the tower, "Straight Talk: Featuring Air Traffic Control" provides great insight into the world of ATC.

New Sleep Apnea Rules March 2
Written by AV-WEB   
Monday, 26 January 2015 13:45

The FAA will impose new guidance on obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) to air medical examiners on March 2. The new rules are much different than the controversial 2013 edict that came from then-Chief Flight Surgeon Fred Tilton, which automatically grounded pilots with body mass index of 40 or more. But it does require AMEs to put more emphasis on the disorder during the medical and sets out the potentially costly steps that will follow if they suspect it. Overweight pilots will almost certainly be targeted under the new orders but they can keep flying until there is a definitive diagnosis and they agree to undergo treatment. Throughout the fact sheet issued on Friday, the FAA maintained that it's not changing any rules. "The FAA is not changing its medical standards related to OSA," it said. "The agency is revising the screening approach to help AMEs find undiagnosed and untreated OSA."

faastLockheed Martin Flight Service: Not the Flight Service Station you once knew
Notice Number: NOTC5815

General Aviation pilots are used to standard weather briefings that include extensive and comprehensive information about their route of flight and a whole lot more information that may or may not be pertinent to their flight. For years pilots have been asking for easy to understand weather and flight information specific to their needs with greater use of graphics and filtering. That is exactly what Lockheed Martin Flight Service is delivering online as a result of the feedback received from General Aviation pilots.

FAA Releases Super Bowl XLIX Flight Advisory
Written by FAAST   
Friday, 16 January 2015 23:50

faastIf you plan on flying in or around the Phoenix area in early February, be sure you check Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs) for information about temporary flight restrictions and special security provisions for Super Bowl XLIX that could affect your flight. The FAA recently released a Super Bowl flight advisory that provides an overview of the NOTAMs that will be in effect for the big game on Feb. 1, 2015, at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. From 1525 until 2359 local time on Feb. 1, you can expect a 30-nautical-mile-radius TFR over Glendale, with an inner 10-nm GA no-fly zone.
TFR information is normally disseminated via FDC NOTAM three to five days prior to the event. Once published, text and graphic depictions of restrictions may be found on It is recommended you check NOTAMs frequently during the event for any possible changes.
