This is a live recording of the Weather Essentials for Pilots live workshop that was held in Fort Worth, Texas. Most of our weather education has been through reading text books, magazine articles and the occasional seminar or online tutorial. This material is filled with generalizations and rules of thumb that don't always apply especially when Mother Nature is at her worst. With respect to weather, the devil is in the details. Very few of these traditional learning resources are up-to-date with the latest technology and weather guidance freely available online. Traditional material tends to lack a detailed description on how to interpret and utilize these high resolution tools within the context of your preflight planning regiment. During your primary and instrument training, your formal weather instruction was either very general or vague - enough to pass the written and practical exams. As a result, many pilots feel their aviation weather knowledge is seriously behind the technology that has emerged online. Weather Essentials for Pilots provides an opportunity to build your weather acuity beyond the standard briefing.
Weather Essentials for Pilots is a unique two-day aviation weather workshop developed and taught by CFI and former NWS research meteorologist, Scott C. Dennstaedt. This workshop is designed to remove much of the guesswork out of your preflight analysis by filling in those gaps in knowledge and take over where your primary training has left off. If you want to enhance your preflight and situational awareness beyond the standard weather brief, be sure to purchase Weather Essentials for Pilots. It will challenge your most basic understanding of the weather.
