49 Hello, my name is Dr. Daniel Prather. Recently, you assisted us with a telephone interview on airport advi- sory practices in place at your airport. We would like to highlight your airport and the effective practices you have in place as a case example in our ACRP synthesis report. May I ask you a few more questions? 1. Who issues or provides airport advisories at your airport (i.e., who runs the UNICOM)? 2. Is training required? 3. Do you have a procedure/policy for UNICOM? 4. What percentage of pilots request an airport advisory at your airport? 5. Have advisories enhanced safety at your airport? How? 6. What would you say to other non-towered airports that do not issue airport advisories? 7. Any lessons learned? APPENDIX C Case Example Interview Script

TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 75: Airport Advisories at Non-Towered Airports documents the manner in which non-towered airports provide advisories to pilots regarding winds, traffic, and runways in use. Unlike with pilot advisories, there is little guidance available for airport operators in providing airport advisories. The objective of this report is to aggregate available guidance on this topic and document information from non-towered airports with at least 50,000 annual aircraft operations. The report includes a literature review and a telephone interview survey of 165 non-towered airports. Six case examples are included, documenting effective airport advisory programs in place at airports.
