|Advanced weather planning||Plan your flying 2-weeks ahead|
|Get the max from web weather||Which weather models to believe?|
|Practical hands-on weather prediction for your flying||Forecasting cloud, showers and more using the skew-t|

|Simon says ... "Building on the knowledge gained from Aviation Weather (Part 1) this course brings hands-on forecasting techniques, enabling you to plan your flights with confidence days in advance. "|
|Delegates say ... "I've learnt so much at Weather School. I now have confidence in my ability to plan my flying days in advance. This course should be compulsory for all pilots!"|
What will I learn?
Maximising your advanced flight planning, right up to flight day is what this course is all about. We deal with topics such as Skew-t & Tephigrams, Advanced Chart Reading, Jet Stream Forecasting, Upper Air Chart Analysis, How to use Skew-T diagrams, Forecasting cloud bases/tops & freezing levels, Icing, fog and thunderstorms. Practical examples are used throughout the course to illustrate real life situations.
Who is it for?
A practical, hands on course suitable for those pilots who want to get down and dirty with the weather! A level of knowledge is assumed and so I strongly strongly recommend attending Part 1 first as topics covered in Part 1 are expected to be understood on this course.
How do you learn?
Using real life examples the course is highly practical. It builds on the information imparted on Part 1 and features many examples of skew-t’s and using these diagrams to forecast the weather for flights.
It focuses on using freely available existing data and forecasts. By integrating these forecasts with additional information such as skew-t data, the pilot can create his own forecasts and confidently predict the weather during a flight. This course is for the more experienced pilot or those flying in IMC or further a field.
What time does the course start & end?
The course last for a full day and runs from 10am to approximately 4.00pm.
