SE069: Standardized Turbulence Terminology


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. SE069 calls for the standardization of turbulence terminology. It additional calls for the use of turbulence forecasts and warnings that are specific to the various aircraft categories.

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.
