SE070: Thunderstorm Clearance Standards

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. SE070 calls for the standardization of vertical and horizontal clearance distance from thunderstorms.

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.
