Snow causes flight delays in Istanbul

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

While snow isn’t often a factor in Istanbul it seems as though it was playing quite the devil’s advocate with flights and travel in general this week. A massive snowstorm is to blame for numerous closures and flight delays in Istanbul and the airport itself went through a three-hour suspension. This Wednesday saw a total of 200 flights that were cancelled on Turkish Airlines and at Ataturk Airport. An incredible 24 inches of snow fell in the city over the course of two days. Turkish Airlines just so happens to be Europe’s fourth-largest carrier, so the weather affected a large amount of travelers.

St. Anthony airport – business as usual

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

It seems as though it’s back to business as usual at St. Anthony Airport according to a spokesperson at Navigation Canada. The airport had been suffering from a software issue that required repairs over the weekend. There had been issues with instruments related to the airstrip, which are vital for pilots to use in order to assure safe landings. The instruments that were malfunctioning are needed to identify the planes’ speed values, direction, and altitude.

As of this Monday the software has been tested and is running again but Liberal transportation critic Tom Osborne has warned that pilots should know that flights to the airport could be diverted.

FAA will allow commercial drone flights in U.S.

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

The FAA has made a proposal that will allow commercial drones permitted in U.S. airspace. Operators will have to pass a test on FAA rules to get a certificate for drone flying. Pilots must also agree to comply with FAA safety requirements. The test has to be passed every two years. The rules state that flights must be kept below 500 feet, during daylight, and must be kept within sight of the operator. No drones will be permitted near airports or over people not involved in its flight. The proposed rules are open now for a 60-day period of commentary, which the Federal Aviation Administration will consider before publishing the final regulations.
