Free Aviation Weather Theory Course

The National Weather Association is offering a free ?Weather Theory for Pilots? interactive course on its website. The course covers basic atmospheric theory, including moisture, vertical motion and stability, and is designed for new or low-time pilots. This course compliments other online courses already offered by the NWA that address flying when thunderstorms are present or forecast and winter weather flying.

The NWA is a nonprofit professional organization made up of more than 3,000 meteorologists and students who work in broadcasting, research and operational forecasting. To access the course go to the NWA website at nwas.org.
