Here's what others are saying about online training...

"I flew today with my instructor to do some refresher IFR training in actual IMC. Due to the online training you gave me, plus all our conversations about convection, stability, CAPE, lifted index, SPC discussions, etc. I had very high confidence that the large areas of moderate rain over our area were non-convective and would be smooth air. We had stable conditions in widespread rain today, and my instructor was very impressed with my ability to explain why I was certain we'd be in smooth, non-convective rain. I don't think we had a single bump the entire flight, even with rain pounding down on the windshield as we flew through some areas showing yellow on my satellite weather radar display. Thanks for the added confidence you've given me."

"The trip on Friday went perfectly, the weather behaved as we had discussed in our online training session. Since I ended up leaving later than planned it was VMC all the time. On Sunday on the way back I was IMC all the time. I have to say that, thanks to all of your great teaching, I was confident, dare I almost say knew, that there were no issues with the weather. It was clear that the the atmosphere was stable along my route of flight and that the freezing level was way above my intended altitude."

Online Training

Private one-on-one aviation weather training


Weather plays a critical role in our decision-making and is probably the number one worry that every pilot has before many of their flights. The weather does not discriminate; it doesn’t matter if you are a student pilot, 20,000-hour seasoned professional or somewhere in between. Every pilot must yield to Mother Nature’s bad side.


Most of our weather education has been through reading textbooks, magazine articles and the occasional online tutorial. This material is filled to the brim with generalizations and rules of thumb that rarely apply, especially when Mother Nature is at her worst. With respect to weather, the devil is in the details. Very few of these traditional resources are up-to-date with the latest technology and weather products available online. Traditional materials are inadequate and lack a detailed description of how to interpret and integrate these tools within the context of your preflight planning effort. Stop worrying and start learning now by registering for a one-on-one online session.


What is online training?


Through the magic and bandwidth of high-speed Internet and the newest web-conferencing software, live online training can now be part of your formal education process. Web-conferencing software such as GoToMeeting™ enables a peer-to-peer or many-to-many medium for formal training as well as exchanging ideas or information. More than just a simple web cam, online training offers live video and audio web-conferencing and web-casting tools with advanced features such as PowerPoint™ presentation support, screen annotation and most importantly, desktop sharing.


The typical private or tailored online session may consist of a PowerPoint™ presentation with the ability to share the presenter or participant’s desktop applications including an Internet browser. Desktop or screen sharing enables the presenter to surf the Internet in real time while the participant follows along as if the participant is looking over the presenter’s shoulder in the same room. Audio is accomplished via a telephone conference (toll call may apply) or using voice over IP (VoIP) via the Internet (a headset is recommended).
