Abstract : This report is the first up-dating of detailed operational requirements for aviation weather service. The FAA's National Aviation Meteorological Requirements Through 1975issued in October 1961 has been modified in content, where necessary. In addition, sections have been added which (1) define the relative priority of different services, products, and meteorological parameters in aviation operations, (2) discuss user application of forecast accuracy information, (3) define operational weather products and their distribution, and (4) describe needed methods for presentation of operational information. The added sections pinpoint not only that information needed for strictly operational use but its relative worth and most easily assimilable form. The report finds that while much needs to be done in observing and processing meteorological information, and in re-aligning operational product distribution, the primary deficiency in operational aviation weather service today - and for the foreseeable future - lies in the area of presentation of weather information to users in a form and with the content that they can apply directly to their operational decisions.
