FAA Evaluates Airport Advisory Service

 - October 9, 2006, 9:58 AM

The FAA is requesting public comments on the usefulness of airport advisory services now available at 20 airports in the continental U.S. The agency does not give a reason why it’s asking for comments, but it could be collecting data to help decide whether the cost of continuing the service is justified. The agency did say that since airport advisory service has “varying degrees of usage by the pilot community, it is important to obtain feedback to ascertain the value of the service.”
