Accident Report Detail

Weather Information Dissemination

Executive Summary

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is providing the following information to urge the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to take action on the safety recommendations in this report. These recommendations address weather information dissemination and are derived from recent accident investigations, which revealed that some critical weather information is not being made available to air traffic controllers and, ultimately, to airborne pilots in need of timely, accurate weather information. Further, when weather information is not readily available to air traffic controllers, many air traffic controllers and their supervisors are unfamiliar with how to solicit alternate sources of weather information. As a result of these investigations, the NTSB is issuing four recommendations to the FAA.
