Pagination or Media Count:
The report presents results of an automatic transcribed pilot report PIREP system fabricated at the National Aviation Facilities EXPERIMENTAL Center NAFEC. The system used an off-the-shelf endless loop tape recorder which was integrated in the Flight Service StationVery High Frequency Omnirange configuration at selected sites. Live operational tests were accomplished to determine equipment deficiencies and operational suitability for consideration of expanding the PIREP concepts to other sites. From the operational tests, the concept was not adopted because of pilot apathy to transmitting PIREPS.
