Online Training

Private 1-on-1 expert aviation weather training

     Weather plays a critical role in our decision-making and is probably the number one worry that every pilot faces 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 replace real weather analysis, 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 by registering for a one-on-one online session today.

     Each online session is an hour long and will cover many adverse weather topics where your primary training left off. Whether you are a seasoned pilot or just received your private pilot certificate, let Scott show you how to get the most out of an online weather briefing and build your confidence in preflight weather analysis.

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 strongly recommended).

Online training curriculum?

     If you feel that your weather analysis is like building a jigsaw puzzle, then you’ve come to the right place. We can help you build your weather acuity through an online training program tailored specifically for you. Simply dedicate a few hours per month and integrate this training with your ongoing preflight planning activities.  In fact, if you are planning to make a flight in the next few days, we will walk through the briefing process together so you can learn how to integrate this guidance and training to make an informed decision to go or stay.  Please note that we provide training only and do not offer an official weather briefing.
