Backed by popular demand, you will have the opportunity to purchase an annual subscription for online training with aviation weather expert, Dr. Scott Dennstaedt. This service allows you over the next year to book up to ten 1-on-1 training sessions each lasting 60 minutes. The cost of the annual subscription is $695/year. That's a $200 savings over purchasing each hour separately! You will have the opportunity to renew for an additional year when your subscription expires. This is a limited time offer and will expire when all slots are filled.
Update: Now begin offered is a plan that allows you to book ten 30-minute sessions that you can use over the next year for only $450. This plan is perfect for those quick sessions to provide training for preflight sessions to look over a route you are proposing.
With this subscription you can book a private online session to dive deeper into any aviation weather topic. Want to learn more about what causes icing, turbulence or thunderstorms, then book an hour-long session to discuss that topic with this subscription. Perhaps you want to review the weather along a route for a flight you are contemplating. While we are not your formal briefer, these route-based sessions are designed to help you better understand how to interpret the observations and forecast guidance available in the EZWxBrief progressive web app so that you gain more confidence in your decision to depart.
Here is the fine print. Each training session must be scheduled in 60- or 30-minute increments depending on the plan purchased. In other words, sessions cannot be split into shorter lengths. All sessions must be booked for available times Monday through Friday with the first session on these days beginning at 9:00 am eastern time and the last session ending at 5:00 pm eastern time on most days. Weekend and evening sessions are not available at this time. Scheduling is subject to schedule Scott's current availability which can be determined when you reserve a session. There will be blackout times due to aviation events (e.g., AirVenture), holidays and for other circumstances as they arise. Unused training sessions cannot be carried over to the next subscription year and will be forfeited.
