NATA Launches Newark Flight Crew Safety Training

Online Training Tool Available To The Public At No Charge

The National Air Transportation Association's (NATA) Safety 1st program, together with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, have launched NATA's Safety 1st Flight Crew Briefing for Newark Liberty International Airport, a customized online training tool that provides pilots and other flight crew members flying into and out of Newark Liberty International Airport free access to critical safety information about the airport, including its location, layout, operations, regulations, and safety and security procedures.

Using interactive graphics, NATA's Safety 1st Flight Crew Briefing presents pilots with views of runway incursion hot spots, scenarios representing common pilot errors, security procedures, and other information that is critical to safe aircraft operations.

The Newark Liberty International Airport training tool is available to any interested person at no charge.

NATA launched NATA's Safety 1st Flight Crew Briefing for Teterboro Airport in June 2008. Since the training tool's inception, more than 250,000 "hits" have been recorded. "We are thrilled at the industry's acceptance, use and promotion of this effective educational and safety tool," remarked NATA President James K. Coyne. "The Newark Liberty International Airport module is a critical addition to this aviation safety initiative because the airport sees such varied types of aircraft traffic. We are also confident the Newark briefing will make great strides to prove the airport's commitment to safety to flight crews and members of the surrounding community as the Teterboro module has done."

Several aircraft operators are requiring their flight crewmembers to complete the Teterboro Airport course as part of their pilot training.  "We have noticed a widespread interest in NATA's Safety 1st Flight Crew Briefings as word of their importance has traveled to industry conferences and events. Crewmembers and pilots of all experience are discovering that they have much to gain through the Teterboro briefing and they've asked when more will be offered. We are pleased to make the Newark training available at this time and report that the FAA and other airport operators are interested in facilitating the development of additional modules," Coyne said.

Airports or aircraft operators interested in developing a similar module should contact NATA Vice President of Government and Industry Affairs Eric R. Byer at NATA.
