Weather situational awareness issue
In times of ever fiercer commercial competition, flight schedules are getting tighter and tighter: shortest possible turnarounds, four or more flights a day meaning for each pilot over 20 relevant airports, potential alternates included.
Then for each airport at a given time of arrival, a changing weather, approach minimas requirements, and how they relate to each other:
Creating a mental picture of the weather situation, and keeping it current through the day is absolutely critical, but can prove extremely challenging with today's solutions.
Pilots are required to have full control over all information messages, also called NOTAMs (Notice To Airmen), for all the airports and areas relevant for their working day.
Let alone their unfriendly format, the sheer volume of messages, containing about two-thirds of clutter, makes this requirement hardly realistic - to the point some pilots simply disregard this information flow.
The problem is: in every single corner of the information jungle above, can hide a serious safety hazard or a costly operational setback for the airline.
