Course Description

Weather is an integral part of aviation and affects flight in many ways before you ever take to the skies. It’s extremely important sUAS pilots not only know current conditions but what is forecast to come. Learning about thermal inversions, wind shear (both speed and directional), circulation and local weather dynamics will help sharpen your skill as a sUAS pilot. Understanding weather, what certain conditions may mean to each flight will allow operators to better manage their time and their assets. This course provides an overview of aviation weather that sUAS pilots will find useful when planning day-to-day operations.
