This is a video screen capture and audio recording of the Skew-T Weather Essentials live workshop that was held in Charlotte, North Carolina. In this workshop you will not only learn how to use the Skew-T log (p) diagram to drill down and find the location of nasty adverse weather, but will also learn the basic principles of weather to include what causes icing, turbulence, thunderstorms, LLWS and more. Learning how to recognize these key signatures will keep you a step ahead of the weather along your proposed route of flight.
Even if you have attended a prior workshop offered by AvWxWorkshops.com, you won't want to miss this recorded version. Skew-T Weather Essentials for Pilots teaches you how to use the Skew-T log (p) diagram in the context of other weather planning guidance. The focus will be on preflight analysis and learning how to minimize your exposure to adverse weather while gaining the most utility from your aircraft. This includes recognizing the presence of turbulence and icing as well as how to determine the cloud tops and bases of most clouds. Moreover, this workshop covers how to determine if there's sufficient moisture and instability to produce deep, moist convection, better known to pilots as thunderstorms. We'll also explore other topics such as how temperature inversions affect LLWS, icing and thunderstorms.
Skew-T Weather Essentials is a unique 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 Skew-T Weather Essentials. It will challenge your most basic understanding of the weather.
