Effective Oct 1, 2016 the FAA will require Airports to use the new TALPA/RCAM Field Condition Reporting. Just wonding how this is effecting your Airport, and any thoughts on it. Our Supervisory staff have really begun dive into the respective A/Cs and other training materials. The reason I decided to make this a topic, is because in conversations, Im finding that alot of people within the industry are not yet abreast of this new reporting practice. The new RCAM is sophisticated and marks a number significant changes that will reduce the "subjectivity of Pireps and/or use of Friction measuring equipment. If you are not familiar with this, act on it fast, as Oct 1st is when this goes into effect. Along with this, there is a change to Notam Manager, which is a reconfiguation of the software interface adding new fields and drop-downs. Anyway, most of you are more than likely aware; and already engaged. But just wanted to put this out there, because it is the new hot topic, at least at my Airport.
