FAA Problems

We Apologize.

The FAA is seeking to use digital content as a revenue source. As a result they have slowly been squeezing the access to the content via the Aeronav website. Starting this cycle they have removed the database which allows automatic download of the files. We are working on getting the data via DVD, however we do not yet have an availability date for this cycle. When we do we will send out an email to all registered members.

What can you do? First, we suggest writing your congressman. The Senate committee reviewing the FAA’s changes has already slapped them on the wrist, but no decision has been made and the FAA appears to be taking more aggressive steps to block access to the data.

Site Troubles

Sorry to report we’ve had some troubles with hacking of our site. The membership database was corrupted and as a result we have removed the login/membership requirement to access the site FAA data.

Depending on the outcome of the FAA plan for charging for access to the data we will re-evaluate the future of the site and membership access procedures.
