The Forecast

AVN FPS

$100

What is 5 miles?

The terminal Aerodrome for which a TAF is valid, consists of a radius this many miles around the runway.

$100

$100

$100

This product will be issued by SJU upon “formal” notification of an aviation accident.

What is an OAV (Aircraft Accident Notification Report)?

$100

This acronym stands for “Visual Flight Rules”

What is VFR?

$100

$100

What are Flight, or Operational, Categories?

One should avoid writing TAFs with unnecessary meteorological detail and instead focus on adhering to these categories

$100

Who is Ro?

If you glance over and find a Christmas-Tree looking TAF GUI, it’s most likely to be this forecaster

$100

$100

$200

The area 5 to 10 miles in radius from the runway.

What is Vicinity (VC)?

$200

$200

What is the Intrahome Page?

Detailed aviation accident procedures can be found electronically here

$200

$200

What is MVFR?

$200

What is the 0 to 6 hour time frame?

What is Yellow?

$200

$200

A ceiling between 1000 and 3000 feet puts you in this flight category

Most of your forecasting energy should be spent on this time frame, also known as the critical TAF period

$200

$200

The METAR section of your AVNFPS gui will turn this color, to let you know your forecast is in disagreement one category from the ob

This new binder, found in the HMT area, can be used to obtain detailed information on our local airports.

$300

$300

What is the Airports Information Binder?

$300

What is the NWS or DOC?

$300

Where liability falls when accidents involving bad weather forecasts occur

$300

$300

What is BKN or OVC?

To be classified as a ceiling, sky coverage must be in one of these two descriptors (i.e. SKC, FEW)

$300

Amendments should be issued when a change of one category or more is expected, or observed to last more than this amount of time.

What is 30 minutes?

$300

What is the Climate tab?

$300

$300

Detailed wind rose, ceiling, and visibility climatology data for all local and MLB sites can be found under this tab

CapeAir provides observations for this local airport, which resumed reporting in the last several months.

$400

What is the Mayaguez Airport TJMZ?

$400

Normally, we will be notified of aircraft mishaps by this organization

$400

$400

$400

What is VFR?

What is HYSPLIT?

$400

What is after ½ past the hour?

$400

Who is the FAA?

Specifically, the FAA Southern Region ROC

$400

A visibility of 6SM, commonly reported locally with HZ from diffuse VA or SAL, puts one in this operational category

$400

These model runs, accessed from the upper-right hand corner of the intrahome page, can help in the forecasting of VA

$400

When issuing an amendment, a TEMPO group cannot be used for the current hour after this point in time.

$500

These graphical representations give a view of wind speed and directionalclimatological distribution at a particular location

What is a Wind Rose?

$500

What is PROCOMM PLUS?

$500

$500

If the closest ob to the accident is an ASOS, this program will be used to retrieve 5-minute observation data

$500

A change in wind speed to over/under 12 knots and more than X degrees direction change requires amendment.

$500

$500

What are the first 9 hours?

The use of PROB30 is not allowed within this time frame of the TAF

What is the Remarks (RMK) section?

It’s important to keep an eye on obs through the text window since these parts of a METAR will not make into the AVNFPS gui

$500

$500

What is 30 degrees?
