NASA is asking general aviation pilots to participate in two special studies it is conducting with the FAA based on data collected through the Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS), according to a report at AOPA.org. The first is “Aviation Weather in the Cockpit and Aeronautical Information Services via Data Link,” which seeks information from pilots about incidents that occurred while they were using weather or AIS information in the cockpit. The second is a study examining wake vortex encounter events. Find out more here.
