Summer Meeting 2007

FAA Headquarters – 800 Independence Avenue SW – Washington, D.C. Third Floor Auditorium

Sponsored by National Business Aviation Association

June 27, 2007

The Goal of this meeting is for the JPDO Weather Working Group (WWG) to share with the broader aviation-weather community of interest the status of “NextGen Weather”.

The aviation-weather community of interest will have an opportunity to provide feedback to the JPDO Weather Working Group on the “NextGen Weather - Concept of Operations” and overall plans for transforming how the Air Traffic Management (ATM) and Weather communities work together to mitigate the impacts of weather in the NAS.

The scope of this Vision meeting is the medium and long term R & D and implementation of ATM-Weather operational solutions. Short-term (12-36 months) operational issues and the resultant solutions are the scope of the 27 September, 2007 FPAW forum at NBAA in Atlanta.
