FAA Safety Seminar – New Weather Tools
October 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
More weather data than ever is available to the pilot, both on the ground and in the air. The PIC now has visibility into observations and forecasting model data that until recently was available only to the professional forecaster. However, data is not the same as insight, and the difference between weather data and an accurate, reliable weather forecast still depends upon the experience and judgment of the forecaster. Some of this responsibility is now shifting to the pilot. Join us as we examine the aviation weather forecast process and its uncertainties, explore three new tools (GFA, MOS, and HEMS) in an interactive flight planning demo, and finish with a look at the weather products available in-flight using the FIS-B service. If you don’t recognize these acronyms, all the more reason to be there!
