Lockheed Flight Service upper level management have recently stated that every specialist can brief anywhere in the country regardless of where they work. It is true that specialists workstations can pull up weather anywhere in the country. However, there are 3 service regions (West, Central, and East). Specialists ONLY receive training and education on 2 flight plan areas WITHIN a service region. They receive a quick overview of the remainder of their service region. Specialists are NOT taught or trained on ANYTHING about other service regions. So, if a California pilot in the western service regions calls in and asks for any briefer and gets a specialist who works New England in the Eastern Service region, odds are that specialist wont be as helpful as a briefer trained in the Western service region. Many pilots get rolled over to other flight plan areas and service regions due to high call volume. This is how management has decided to do things whether people feel it is right or wrong. Therefore, as a specialist I would just ask that pilots be patient and bear with us. Its not an ideal situation, but it is what it is and specialists have no control over the situation. I would like to thank all the pilots who call us and bear with us when we aren't trained in the area they are flying in.
