Lockheed Martin Opens Registration for Adverse Condition Alerting Service Website

Tue, 6 Nov 2012 09:59:33 EST

ASHBURN, Va., – Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] Flight Services (LMFS) today announced open online registration for the Automated Flight Service Station (AFSS) Pilot Web Portal and new Adverse Condition Alerting Service (ACAS). ACAS and the Pilot Web Portal will enhance safety and convenience for pilots who use LMFS to file flight plans.

The Pilot Web Portal, accessible through AFSS.com, allows pilots to file flight plans online directly with LMFS and retrieve the same briefing information and weather graphics provided to LMFS Specialists. In addition, pilots will be able to input additional information including favorite flight plans and personal aircraft data.

Pilots who register online and opt-in for ACAS via the Pilot Web Portal will receive alerts of new adverse conditions specific to their LMFS filed flight plans via text, email and Iridium satellite devices. The alerts prompt pilots to call or radio LMFS to receive an abbreviated briefing addressing the new adverse condition.

'Lockheed Martin is excited to release the Pilot Web Portal and ACAS to the general aviation community,' said Jim Derr, director of Lockheed Martin Flight Services. 'Whether you prefer to self-brief or to call us, these new services will enhance safety for general aviation pilots and make it easier than ever to file flight plans with LMFS.'

Lockheed Martin has operated Flight Services on behalf of the Federal Aviation Administration through the Automated Flight Service Station contract since 2005. In fiscal year 2012, Lockheed Martin Flight Services accomplished the following:

· Filed more than 1.06 million flight plans for aviation pilots;

· Provided more than 1.5 million pilot weather briefings;

· Answered 447,462 aviation radio contacts; and

· Helped pilots in 7,058 aviation search and rescue events.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.
