FAA Safety Briefing October 2013 Department Profiles
Notice Number: NOTC5016

The September/October 2013 issue of FAA Safety Briefing, available at (, focuses on aviation citizenship. Articles highlight the shared values, customs, and culture we share as citizens of the general aviation community.

The issue’s Jumpseat department (p.1) explains the importance of being a good aviation ambassador, Checklist (p. 30) covers the Airman Testing Standards and Training Work Group’s progress on the “aviation citizenship test” (i.e., the knowledge test standards), and Postflight (p. 32) highlights an important example of professionalism and airmanship every aviation citizen should aspire to emulate.

Our Vertically Speaking department (p. 28) covers the new Moral Courage Safety Award, while Nuts, Bolts, and Electrons (p. 26) focuses on the importance of being a good citizen in aviation maintenance.

Finally, this issue’s FAA Faces department (p. 33) profiles Lou Volchansky, assistant manager with FAA’s Aircraft Certification Service. Volchansky helps communicates the impact of the FAA’s airspace modernization effort on general aviation and contributed to the latest edition of the NextGen Implementation Program, outlining how operators can take advantage of NextGen capabilities.
