ANN's Daily Aero-Term (05.23.20): Precision Approach Radar

Precision Approach Radar

Radar equipment in some ATC facilities operated by the FAA and/or the military services at joint-use civil/military locations and separate military installations to detect and display azimuth, elevation, and range of aircraft on the final approach course to a runway. This equipment may be used to monitor certain non-radar approaches, but is primarily used to conduct a precision instrument approach (PAR) wherein the controller issues guidance instructions to the pilot based on the aircraft’s position in relation to the final approach course (azimuth), the glidepath (elevation), and the distance (range) from the touchdown point on the runway as displayed on the radar scope.

NBAA, NATA Debunk Bloomberg’s Caricature of COVID Impact on Business

"Your Recent Story Promotes An Unfortunate Caricature Of Business Aviation"

A recent Bloomberg article missed the astounding impact of the Covid-19 crisis on charter operations, and the citizens, companies and communities relying on this American industry, NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen and NATA President and CEO Tim Obitts told the publisher in a letter to the editor. "'...in this Covid-19 moment, companies have widely halted business travel, causing charter flights to fall so dramatically that air-taxi providers have requested aid for the same reason countless other small businesses have taken the same step: to keep employees on the job. It’s too bad those employees — line workers, pilots, maintenance specialists, facility managers, customer-service representatives and others — didn’t warrant your attention,' they wrote."
