Brief Description:

AOPA Air Safety Institute Investigates Weather Accidents 

Weather is often blamed as the cause of accidents when, in reality, it’s poor decision making that’s the culprit. Arm yourself to make the right weather choices at crucial moments before and during flight.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why getting the big weather picture is important
  • How to improve your go/no-go decision-making process
  • Tips to “weatherize” your mindset and avoid traps like flying VFR into IMC
  • Why technology can be a great tool and your worst enemy in weather flying
