... 37 chapter six CONCLUSIONS AND FUTURE RESEARCH This report is intended to present a synthesis of current practice. In addition, conclusions can be drawn from the data gathered to arrive at a state of current practice.
From page 38...
... 38 Conclusion 1 Non-towered airports benefit from having a combined CTAF/UNICOM frequency or separate UNICOM frequency upon which airport advisories may be transmitted. Conclusion 2 Non-towered airports equipped with an on-field AWOS or ASOS receive fewer requests for airport advisories.
From page 39...
... 39 CONCLUSION 4 Although a combined CTAF/UNICOM frequency has been known to cause confusion with pilots, airports with separate CTAF/UNICOM frequencies also reported confusion on the part of pilots. In essence, it is important to inform pilots fully about frequencies in use at the airport and to ensure that the personnel issuing advisories are properly trained and issuing appropriate advisories on the appropriate frequency.

... 40 of AWOS and ASOS and the ability to append broadcasts, airport advisories have been issued with the same means for decades. CONCLUSION 10 Possibly the most important finding of this synthesis is that everyone at the airport can contribute to airport safety, including pilots, UNICOM operators, airport operators, FBOs, and flight schools.
