Webinar Highlights Inflight Hazard Avoidance

The AvWxWorkshops webinar will help you make weather decisions in flight. Pia Bergqvist

Many pilots lack a good understanding of how weather systems can affect the safety of a flight. If you’re one of those pilots, here’s an opportunity to learn. AvWxWorkshops is offering a webinar called Inflight Hazard Avoidance Strategies to help a pilot become better at deciphering whether to fly through a weather system. Topics such as icing, turbulence, convective hazards and more, will be covered in a four-hour seminar.

“If you’ve attended one of my live workshops in the past, you know that I’ve mainly focused on preflight weather analysis,” said Scott Dennerstaedt, founder of AvWxWorkshops, “This Webinar, on the other hand, will focus on how to use your preflight knowledge to make good in-flight decisions and minimize your exposure to adverse weather.”

The webinar will be broken down into two, two-hour segments and it will be offered twice. The first seminar series is scheduled on March 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. and March 14 from 9 to 11 p.m. EDT. The second session will take place on March 19 from 9 to 11 p.m. and March 21 from 7 to 9 p.m. EDT. If those times don’t work for you, the webinar will be available for purchase at a later date and those who register and attend the webinar live will be able to view them for free.

The price for the webinar is $69. A $20 discount is offered if you have an AvWxWorkshops membership, which includes the WeatherSpork app. To learn more about this webinar or to register, click here.
