AOPA Objects to Sleep Apnea Screening for Overweight Pilots

AOPA is asking the FAA to indefinitely suspend implementation of a new policy that would require some pilots to be screened and, if necessary, treated for obstructive sleep apnea before receiving a medical certificate. The screening would initially apply to pilots with a body mass index (BMI) over 40. Over time, the FAA would lower the BMI requirement, compelling more pilots to be screened by a board-certified sleep specialist.

Lake Henry VORTAC Wilkes-Barre, PA Decommissioned

Lake Henry (LHY) VORTAC Decommissioning
Notice Number: NOTC5002

On Thursday October 17, 2013 the Lake Henry (LHY) VORTAC was decommissioned and Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes in the Northeastern United States that utilized LHY have been amended. With the decommissioning of the LHY VORTAC, ground-based navigation aid (NAVAID) coverage is insufficient to enable the continuity of all the airways, therefore, modifications were necessary to prevent a gap in route structures.

FAASafety.gov reminder about pills

Are You Taking Slow Pills Before You Fly?
Notice Number: NOTC4975

Many common medications are known to slow the thinking process and slow reaction times. When combined with bad weather, an unfamiliar area or unexpected flight events, this slowness caused by the medication may be the final factor that causes an accident. Pilots should preflight themselves before they preflight the aircraft.
