Dear Friends and Partners in Aviation Weather,

We greatly appreciated your active participation in last week’s FPAW Fall Meeting, which led to stimulating discussions.  Thank you!

As you may recall, at the very end of the day on Thursday, we examined the possibility of moving the FPAW Planning Meeting from Wednesday, October 28 to Monday, October 26 in an attempt to mitigate a schedule conflict for some folks.  However, this option created other, equally difficult conflicts. Consequently, we decided to keep the FPAW Planning Meeting as originally scheduled on Wednesday, October 28 from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM Eastern Time.

If you are among the lucky ones without a schedule conflict, please do plan to participate, using the following link and call-in information: Join Microsoft Teams Meeting +1 540-492-5664 United States, Roanoke (Toll) Conference ID: 551 258 351# Local numbers | Reset PIN | Learn more about Teams | Meeting options

Please think about and be ready to discuss topics that you feel should be part of future FPAW meetings. Ideally, you should submit them ahead of time on the FPAW website:  Thank you!


With best wishes, Matthias Steiner and Matt Fronzak


We are about one month away from the FPAW Fall meeting.  Attached is an updated agenda for the plenary meeting on 13-15 October 2020 and the planning meeting on 28 October 2020.

Please note that this will be a virtual meeting again. Call information for each day is included in the agenda. Also, please register at the FPAW website register on the event website if you plan on attending the Fall Meeting. Registration closes October 12. 

Moreover, don't forget to use the FPAW website link, submit topics, to submit topics that you would like to see discussed at a future FPAW meeting.  Thank you!

With best wishes, Matthias Steiner and Matt Fronzak


FPAW Agenda


The 2020 FPAW Fall meeting will be a virtual meeting again given the significant uncertainties remaining with the current pandemic situation.  The meeting will be spread over four days, albeit with shortened daily duration to accommodate four time zones from the East coast to Alaska.  The plenary meeting will be on three consecutive days from 13-15 October, followed by a planning meeting on 28 October two weeks later

We wanted to give you as much lead time as possible to allow you to keep those days and times blocked for FPAW.  We hope that you can participate and look forward to another stimulating FPAW meeting this fall.

PS:  Please don’t forget to submit your topics of interest on the FPAW website.  Thank you!

With best wishes,

Matthias Steiner and Matt Fronzak
