GETTING IN WHEN RADAR IS OUT (AND OTHER UNEXPECTED SCENARIOS)
What operating rules apply to VFR flights in controlled airspace when the controlling air
traffic facility has an unscheduled shutdown? Temporary shutdowns and service reductions
have been ordered at numerous air traffic control facilities in recent months after ATC staff
tested positive for the coronavirus, raising that question for pilots flying VFR in airspace
controlled by an ATC facility or to an airport with a tower that finds itself suddenly unable to
function. Read more.

ENHANCED HEMS TOOL BOOSTS WEATHER AWARENESS
Pilots don't have to fly from hospital helipads or from offshore oil rigs to want to keep an
eye on fast-changing low-altitude weather. HEMS, a source of digital weather information
that recently took on enhanced features, gives any pilot improved weather awareness for
planning flights in the lower levels.
COLLEGES COLLABORATE ON RETURN TO FLIGHT TRAINING
Collegiate flight programs across the United States are sharing techniques to help get flight
training off the ground as coronavirus pandemic restrictions begin to ease. Read more.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FAA WINGS PROGRAM
The FAA's Pilot Proficiency program, also known as WINGS, has 511 online courses
for pilots to refresh their aviation knowledge. Most of the courses are free. And, if you
complete a phase of WINGS, the WINGS Industry Advisory Committee offers you a
chance to win in the Fran and Paul Burger Sweepstakes. Go to mywingsinitiative.org for
more information and to see the last two years' winners. Also, check out the WINGS Topic
of the quarter checklist.
CONNECTIVITY, TECHNOLOGY STREAMLINE FLIGHT SERVICE BRIEFINGS
Imagine a world where you can request an initial briefing from Leidos Flight Service and
then-prior to takeoff-receive an update briefing with the latest flight conditions without
duplicating all of the data you already have. The option is now available, provided Leidos has
your primary phone number and other pertinent pilot information. Read more.
