Overview of the Integrated Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Wind Shear Program Plan 861702
Presented in this paper are efforts undertaken by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to address the wind shear issue, as stated in the Integrated FAA Wind Shear Program Plan. Program elements include Education and Training, Ground Sensors, Airborne Sensors and Flight Guidance Systems, Terminal Information Systems and Low-Level Meteorological Hazard Characterization. The plan emphasizes how each program element operationally relates to the others and incrementally adds to the overall National Airspace Safety. Besides the FAA, other branches of the government, the industry, the aviation community and the academic sector are also involved in the development of this program.
