LIghtning is a big problem at NASP. Pensacola has one of the most frequent occurrences of lightning strikes in the United States. When LIghtning is in the area, aircraft cannot be refueled. The NAVTRAMETOCFAC FDO monitors the NEXRAD and LPATS located within the operational spaces. Together, these systems provide accurate lightning strike direction and distance information and are superb tools for determining fueling operations recommendations for the ODO. The ODO determines when fueling operations will commence or cease.
