Status: NOT CURRENTLY ON CAST PLAN


Background

The purpose of this Safety Enhancement is to improve the quality and quantity of turbulence information used to support strategic flight planning and in-flight routing in order to efficiently avoid turbulence. SE066 calls for increased quantity and quality of manual Pilot Reports (PIREPs) through aircrew training and improved distribution within airlines. It also calls for automated turbulence reporting based on Eddy Dissipation Rate (EDR).


This safety enhancement is not currently on the CAST Plan, but might be included in the future. In that event, the attached Implementation Plan would be revised prior to inclusion.
