Weather Challenge

You don’t need a meteorologist-level understanding of weather to be a good pilot—though to judge from some of the educational materials out there, you might think so. Skew-T diagrams and moist adiabatic lapse rates are all well and good, but for most of us it’s the practical stuff that matters.

With that in mind, our new seminar is aimed at bolstering your real-world weather wisdom—and having a little fun, too. As with our recent “Chart Challenge” seminar, we’ll put your knowledge to the test, quizzing you on everything from METAR/TAF decoding to real-world weather scenarios. Along the way we’ll cover:

  • The most important weather resources for pilots
  • Critical tie-ins with risk management and decision making
  • Weather-related accidents that didn’t need to happen
  • The promise (and pitfalls) of cockpit weather
