Under the FFSP contract, Leidos will help the FAA achieve its vision to transform and modernize the delivery of flight briefing services by reducing program costs, providing technology enhancements, and by engaging the broader general aviation community. Leidos was awarded the FAA's predecessor Automated Flight Service Station (AFSS) contract in 2005. Since then, the company has continued to deliver a full range of cost-effective flight services through its flight specialist and self-service options via 1800wxbrief.  

As a valued partner of the FAA, Leidos leveraged its expertise as a trusted technology provider and systems integrator in the global aviation market. With continued FAA oversight, Leidos will provide weather data, aeronautical information and flight planning services to the general aviation community under the agency's strict safety and service requirements. Services will be provided in the contiguous United States, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii.

"Leidos is proud to continue our briefing services for the general aviation community," said Jim Moos, Leidos Civil Group acting group president. "We look forward to delivering enhancements, like our interactive map application, to keep general aviation pilots better informed as they plan their flights with the FAA."
