simon-keeling-813029616Simon says ... "The tick box exercise of the PPL leads to little actual weather knowledge. This course teaches you what you need to know to get the most from your flying."
aeroplaneDelegates say ... "What a great course! Outstanding and pertinent content delivered perfectly. Many thanks!"


What topics are covered?
How to maximise your flying time and get the aircraft booked before anyone else. We’ll use todays charts to investigate how our flying would have been affected today (for example, would the cloud in the photograph have stopped you flying?). Topics covered included airmasses, the atmosphere, frontal systems, pressure systems, cloud development & forecasting, weather data as well as a Q & A session.

I am an experienced pilot, should I attend? 
Yes, this course has been attended by those with no flying experience, through to 777 pilots and everyone said they learned a lot from it.

Will this course help me with my PPL? 
You will get under the skin of weather during this course. It will help you think like a weather forecaster and explain why weather happens. It is not a crash-course for passing the PPL, but it will make you think and help you pass your exams.

What is included? 
Lectures, lunch and refreshements through the day are all included (the biscuits are fab!).
