FAA TFR and Weather Brief Outages

Friday, November 16, 2012 @ 1:14 PM

Just a quick update on two FAA technology outages this week:

  • TFRs
    The FAA TFR website (http://tfr.faa.gov) has been offline since Tuesday, preventing us from acquiring real-time TFR data for display on iFlightPlanner.com and in iFlightPlanner for iPad.  We are still awaiting an update from them on when the website will be functional again.
  • Weather Briefings
    For a period between Thursday afternoon and early Friday morning, FAA weather briefings were not returning any data, resulting in our members seeing an error message when requesting a weather brief.
As always, we take every action available to ensure we are providing accurate and complete aviation information to our members.  To do this, we are reliant on an handful of third party services, including the FAA, which are out of our control.  In these cases, we'll do everything possible to keep you informed.  If you ever have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us!
