SE068: Improved Turbulence Forecast Accuracy

Background

The purpose of this Safety Enhancement is to improve the quality and quantity of turbulence information used to support strategic flight planning and in-flight routing in order to efficiently avoid turbulence. SE068 calls for Improved turbulence forecast accuracy through improved forecasts based on multiple data sources, along with development of a turbulence forecast verification system.

This safety enhancement is not currently on the CAST Plan, but might be included in the future. In that event, the attached Implementation Plan would be revised prior to inclusion.
