NTSB Warns Pilots About Weight & Balance

Monday, March 19, 2018 @ 8:00 AM

‚ÄčThe National Transportation Safety Board has issued a Safety Alert for General Aviation pilots, called “Minding Weight, Maintaining Balance: Improper or Unperformed Calculations Can Be Fatal.”

Between 2008 and 2016, the probable causes of 136 general aviation (GA) accidents were related to pilots improperly conducting preflight performance calculations for weight and balance or not conducting them at all. One-third of these accidents resulted in pilot and/or passenger deaths.

iFlightPlanner makes it easy to calculate your Weight & Balance based on your specific make/model aircraft, your passenger and cargo load, and planned fuel burn so there's no excuse not to!

FAA to Allow Ownship Display on EFBs

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 @ 8:00 AM

This story originally appeared on AIN.

The FAA has signaled a sea-change in its attitude about display of own-ship position on electronic flight bags (EFBs) and has issued new Advisory Circular (AC) guidance supporting that feature. The agency also is stepping back from in-depth involvement with operators in managing their EFB programs.

AC120-76D replaces the -C version issued in 2014, which for commercial operators specifically prohibited use of geo-referencing or own-ship position display while using moving-map features in the air. Use of geo-referencing on the ground was previoulsy considered acceptable by the agency.

This new guidance applies to Part 91, 91K, 121, 125 and 135 operators, but only 91K through 135 operators are required to seek FAA approval of their EFB programs. Part 91 operators can use EFBs as they wish, without formal approval, and many pilots have been using geo-referenced moving maps and approach charts to aid situational awareness since the iPad entered the market in 2010.

FAA Removes SID Chart Obstacle Notes to Cut Clutter

Wednesday, August 16, 2017 @ 8:00 AM

With the August 17 AIRAC cycle, pilots will find revised Standard Instrument Departure (SID) charts easier to read because the FAA is removing the takeoff obstacle notes from them.

The obstacles are still there, said Rich Boll, chair of the Airspace, Air Traffic, and Flight Technology Working Group of NBAA’s Access Committee. “If these obstacles are a factor on departure, pilots will find the necessary information in the Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedure section, which are located on the front of the government charts and on the back of Jeppesen’s 10-9 airport chart.”
