Flight Watch Services Consolidated, Now on 122.2 MHz

Lockheed Martin Flight Services (LMFS), the company that operates U.S. flight service stations (FSS) on behalf of the FAA, will consolidate Flight Watch services with other routine FSS in-flight frequencies to eliminate duplication of pilot services, effective September 24 , the FAA announced last week. Traditionally the En Route Flight Advisory Service (EFAS)—Flight Watch—has been available anywhere in the U.S. on 122.0. The FAA will discontinue using 122.0 for both Flight Watch and Hi-Watch and make those services available on 122.2 and all remote communications outlet frequencies.

Dover Airforce Base wants to expand & lower pattern

Table 1. Elements of the Proposed Action
Proposed Action
Benefit to Flying Operations at Dover AFB

1. Establish “Monster West” Low – Level training route :
Establishment of this pattern will allow C17 pilots to conduct low-level, land based navigation in a simulated GPS-degraded environment. This pattern would utilize more land area than the currently utilized “Monster Mile” which primarily occurs over the Delaware Bay. This is the only action element that affects states other than Delaware.
