Yes. If you'd like about a two-hour rant on PIREPs and NOTAMs, I can hook you up with one of my guys that's running our PIREP forum in a couple of weeks...

Some companies are real good about passing along PIREPs from their crews, some practically treat them like proprietary information.

The ATC process for getting them out of the building is all over the place: frequently, "Controller writes info on paper, calls supe, hands to supe, supe takes to either the facility meteorologist (if any), or gives to the flight data guy (often other side of the room) to enter into the system. Or the supe might call FSS to pass it along, if they answer the phone fast enough to fit within his other duties."

It's not good...




It's a mess with FSS in the air....I was talking to what's called "Cleveland Radio" in the vicinity of Sandusky today to give a pirep. "What's the identifier for Sandusky?" he asks...heck, he's Cleveland Radio, you'd think he'd know. Then he asks my destination. "What's the identifier for White Plains?" he asks. Must be a new guy, probably doesn't know Teterboro or Bedford, either. He finally got the pirep mostly right after we played the preliminary 20 question game.
