Are you interested in listening to a quick weather overview each day of the week? If so, you are in luck. Starting Tuesday, March 1, the founder of EZWxBrief, Dr. Scott Dennstaedt, will be hosting a 7 to 10 minute live video broadcast every weekday for the general aviation community. The goal is to provide general aviation pilots with a quick weather overview of that day's weather impacts across the conterminous U.S. and southern Canada. Therefore, if you have a flight planned sometime during the day, we hope you will take a few minutes and tune in. In fact, you can listen to the first video here that was recorded earlier this morning.
How can you watch? If you get up early, the actual broadcast will be live on the EZWxBrief YouTube channel (https://youtube.com/avwxworkshops) beginning around 7-7:15 a.m. eastern time (assuming there are no technical glitches). If you have not done so already, please take a moment today to subscribe to the EZWxBrief YouTube channel at https://youtube.com/avwxworkshops and turn on this channel's notifications to be reminded when the live event happens. With a few exceptions for illness, holidays and travel, there will be a live broadcast every weekday (Monday through Friday) morning with Friday's broadcast offering a brief weather outlook for the weekend. If you miss the live broadcast, the video will be published on the EZWxBrief YouTube channel shortly thereafter. Any changes to the daily schedule will be posted on the EZWxBrief social media sites including the EZWxBrief Facebook page.
Here's where we need your help! If you are enjoying these daily videos, please feel free to post a link on your social media accounts, forums and other outlets as well as sending a quick email to all of your friends who you believe will benefit. If you have any specific feedback, praise or other constructive ideas, please feel free to contact us. We'd love to hear from you. There's no doubt that this concept will evolve over time as feedback is received.
For now, there's no fee to view this broadcast or watch any of the recorded videos. It would be awesome to see hundreds if not thousands of pilots tuning in every day. Having said that, we are also looking for a sponsor for these daily videos. Please understand that this daily weather overview is being offered for educational and entertainment purposes only and does not substitute as a formal weather briefing for a route of flight as required by 14 CFR § 91.103.
