FAA Reports Pilot Errors on Teterboro and Morristown Arrivals
Philadelphia TRACON has informed NBAA of a very high incidence of pilots not complying with the JAIKE Three RNAV standard terminal arrival route (STAR) on arrivals into New Jersey's Teterboro (TEB) and Morristown Municipal (MMU) airports. Pilots are missing the "at" crossing altitude at ILENE. On one shift the incidence rate was more than 50 percent. This places aircraft in conflict with other arrival and departure traffic for New York metropolitan airports, presenting a serious safety concern. The NBAA Access Committee's Flight Deck Avionics Subgroup has prepared a primer on the JAIKE Three STAR and the "Descend Via" procedure in general. Review the resource now.
'Green' Terminal Is a First for Michigan
Pilots, passengers and other visitors to Oakland County International Airport (PTK) in southeastern Michigan have a new attraction to visit at the busy Detroit-area reliever airport: A state-of-the-art general aviation terminal building that is both attractive and environmentally friendly, having been certified to the LEED Gold standard. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. County officials said the new terminal is the first in the state, and the first general aviation terminal in the country, to receive this certification. Read more about PTK's environmental efforts.

Building Career Pipelines in Business Aviation
The career pipeline is a concept used by many industries to help develop future leaders, and business aviation is no exception. "The pipeline program is a way to link the business aviation industry to collegiate aviation programs that have either a corporate course or a full, embedded business aviation program – or just an interest in having their students exposed to the business aviation world," explains Dr. Tara Harl of St. Cloud State University in this week's NBAA Flight Plan podcast. NBAA provides several resources for companies wishing to establish career pipeline programs of their own, including a Pipeline Program Guide, tips on establishing internship programs and many scholarship offerings.
