Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).


Request for public comment.


The FAA is requesting public comment on the Airport Advisory Service provided at twenty (20) airports in the continental United States, excluding Alaska.

The Airport Advisory Service, Local or Remote, is an optional service provided by Automated Flight Service Stations for pilots of landing or departing aircraft at airports either without air traffic control towers or with part-time control towers. The Airport Advisory Service information includes weather updates, wind and altimeter information, runway usage, aeronautical data, and any known air traffic in the area.

Since Airport Advisory Service is provided full-time at many of the affected airports and part-time at others, with varying degrees of usage by the pilot community, it is important to obtain feedback from individual users and from user groups in order to ascertain the value of the service provided to the aviation community at those airports. The FAA is particularly interested in comments concerning the necessity of the service, the availability of the service, the importance of the service, and how often the service is used. Users are also welcome to include comments concerning any other aspect of your experience with Airport Advisory Service.

The request for comments includes Airport Advisory Service at the following airports: Altoona-Blair County Airport (AOO), Altoona, Pennsylvania; Anderson Regional Airport (AND), Anderson, South Carolina; Anniston Metropolitan Airport (ANB), Anniston, Alabama; Casper-Natrona County International Airport (CPR), Casper, Wyoming; Cedar City Regional Airport (CDC), Cedar City, Utah; Columbia Regional Airport (COU), Columbia, Missouri; Elkins-Randolph Airport (EKN), Elkins, West Virginia; Gainesville Regional Airport (GNV), Gainesville, Florida; Grand Forks International Airport (GFK), Grand Forks, North Dakota; Greenwood-Leflore Airport (GWO), Greenwood, Mississippi; Huron Regional Airport (HON), Huron, South Dakota; Jackson-McKellar-Sipes Regional Airport (MKL), Jackson, Tennessee; Jonesboro Municipal Airport (JBR), Jonesboro, Arkansas; Louisville-Bowman Field Airport (LOU), Louisville, Kentucky; Macon-Middle Georgia Regional Airport (MCN), Macon, Georgia; Millville Municipal Airport (MIV), Millville, New Jersey; Prescott-Ernest A.
