Live aviation weather classes


Are you looking for a more structured approach to aviation weather training?  If so, you should plan to attend one or more 12-week live classes by AvWxTraining. Each class is taught by CFI & former NWS meteorologist, Dr. Scott Dennstaedt.  

At AvWxTraining, we use Google Meet for all of our live classes. Every class will have time reserved at the end for the attendees to ask questions. Each class will be recorded and a link to the recording will be provided the following day. Therefore, it is not mandatory that you attend each live class to get the most from the 12-week course. You must pay the full tuition to obtain the recording. Check back for new live classes being offered. 


Skew-T Weather Essentials

This class is less about learning how to use the Skew-T log (p) diagram and more about learning the fundamental principles and building blocks of aviation meteorology. The tool makes for a great canvas or backdrop to teach you about what causes the formation of clouds, fog, airframe icing, turbulence, and thunderstorms, just to name a few. In other words, you need to understand these basic principles of weather first, before mastering how to interpret the Skew-T log (p) diagram for your preflight weather planning and analysis.


In a nutshell, this 12-week course is specifically directed at certificated private/commercial pilots, flight instructors and designated pilot examiners that want to really learn the science and application of the Skew-T log (p) diagram. It is open to pilots with and without an instrument rating. Putting it succinctly, this is meant to be a slight notch above the intermediate level. For most students attending this 12-week course, 20% of the material will be a review of basic aviation weather concept and the other 80% will be new or untaught material to focus on those gaps in knowledge that most certificated pilots possess.
