FAA and GA Community to Launch Weather Safety Campaign

Friday, May 9, 2014 @ 8:00 AM

The  Federal Aviation Administration and general aviation groups will launch an eight-month national safety campaign titled, “Got Weather? #GotWx,” to help general aviation pilots prepare for potential weather challenges they may encounter during the 2014 flying season.  FAA Administrator Michael Huerta and GA leaders will kick-off the Got Weather? campaign this Sunday, May 4, in Anchorage at the Great Alaska Aviation Gathering.

“General aviation is a vibrant part of our country’s culture and our economy,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.  “But too many lives are lost each year in general aviation crashes related to weather.  This campaign will help ensure that our general aviation pilots are prepared in the face of bad weather and are as safe and well-trained as possible.”
