In this course, students will learn that a fundamental understanding of meteorology is crucial for pilots. Despite advances in computerized forecasting methods, there are still limits to the accuracy of predictions because of our ever changing atmosphere. It is important that student pilots learn to decipher a multitude of printed reports and forecasts when planning a flight, because challenging, even hazardous weather conditions can develop that impact aircraft operation, as well as estimated time of arrival.
