NATA Safety Briefing Program Finding Favor

Since last June, more than 80,000 visits have been recorded on the crew briefing site for Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. Consistently one of the busiest general aviation airports in the country, Teterboro is also located within some of the most complex and congested airspace. To help pilots negotiate arrivals and departures involving Teterboro, the National Air Transportation Association launched to familiarize flight crews with some of the safety considerations of the field, both in the air and on the ground. For example, the site illustrates "with unusual clarity and effectiveness" the typical approach procedure that involves descending below airline traffic approaching nearby Newark Liberty International Airport.
