WEATHER DECISION-MAKING PRIORITIES:

AN AOC PERSPECTIVE

TOM LLOYD | MANAGER METEOROLOGY & ROUTE OPTIMIZATION/AIR TRAFFIC SYSTEMS

jetblue system operations
JETBLUE SYSTEM OPERATIONS
  • SOC located atLong Island City, NY
    • Overall coordination ofall flight operations
    • Operational planning
    • Disruption recovery
  • SOC functions
    • Manager on Duty
    • Flight Dispatch
    • System Control
    • Crew Resources
    • Maintenance Control
    • Air Traffic Coordination
linkage of weather forecasts to key soc decisionmaking areas
LINKAGE OF WEATHER FORECASTS TO KEY SOC DECISIONMAKING AREAS
  • National Airspace System (NAS) Operations
  • Flight Dispatch / Operational Control
  • Ground Operations Support

CUSTOMERS CREWMEMBERS ASSETS

nas operations wx atm integration
NAS OPERATIONS: WX/ATM INTEGRATION
  • All airspace is not created equal
    • Up to 50% of Ground Stop/GDPs are at a NYC airport
    • 1/3 of all US flights are directly affected by NYC/PHL delays
    • Pre-DOT rule, vast majority of 3-hour tarmac delays departing NYC airports
  • “One-size-fits-all” products are less effective for NYC ops
collaborative decision making
COLLABORATIVE DECISION MAKING
  • Mission: Evolve the CCFP concept
    • Keep up with the state of forecast science
    • Incorporate new tech
    • Flexible and tailored to NAS constraints: focus resources, maximize efficacy
  • Operational Bridging
  • Aviation Weather Statement (AWS)

CDM: OPERATIONAL BRIDGING
  • OB Summer 2013 Demo is ongoing
  • Collaborative
    • NAS operator meteorologists
    • NWSChat
  • NWS/AWC support
  • Future considerations
    • FAA/NWS Budgets
    • Active operator collaboration
    • Tech/cultural integration

DISPATCH: SAFETY, LEGALITY, FUEL IN ACHANGING ECONOMIC & REGULATORY ENV.
  • Terminal Forecasts
    • Regulatory necessity (TAF)
    • C&V, Winds
    • Anticipate runway condition/performance
  • Turbulence/Icing
  • Other hazards
    • Volcanic Ash
    • Convective
  • Fuel: cost to carry,cost to divert
  • EWINS
ground ops infrastructure planning a current gap
GROUND OPS/INFRASTRUCTURE PLANNINGA CURRENT GAP
  • De-icing/anti-icing – holdover/allowance time
    • Currently based on P-type, intensity
    • Often difficult to forecast/plan
  • Gap in forecasting beyond 2 hours
  • TAF format restricts expressing forecast for low-probability/high impact events (FZRA, ice pellets etc.)
ground ops infrastructure planning a current gap1
GROUND OPS/INFRASTRUCTURE PLANNINGA CURRENT GAP
  • Infrastructure determines ops tolerance for bad weather
    • Navigation equipment
    • Lighting
    • Runways/taxiways
  • Natural hazards
    • “Snowtober” 2011
    • Sandy/Nor’Easter 2012
  • Budget constraints

FINAL THOUGHTS

  • The weather community succeeds when connected to its customers
    • Forecasts built around the needs of the user
    • ...but flexible to evolve with those needs
  • Lessons from the ATM world apply outside the field as well
