Oakland FSS Schedueled to Close – Provide Your Feedback

An article in the latest issue of the online AOPA magazine that Lockheed Martin is planning on closing five satellite flight service stations (http://www.aopa.org/advocacy/articles/2008/081015fss.html) by February 2009. Included in the list is the Oakland Flight Service Station. I find it troubling that Bay Area pilots will loose the local knowledge possessed by the Oakland team of flight service specialists. After the closing calls from the Bay Area to 1-800-WX-BRIEF will most likely be routed to the Prescott, AZ hub.
