Webinar: Aviation Weather Hazards

May 23, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

“Weather is the most lethal of all major causes of aviation accidents.” – Former FAA Administrator

In this 60 minute webinar you’ll learn methods to do just that. Assess the potential hazards and how to avoid them.

  • The top resource for assessing potential turbulence or mountain wave.
  • Tools that most pilots rely on—that are not reliable (and what to use instead).
  • How to determine if thunderstorms will be a factor.
  • Recognizing turbulence or LLWS even when it’s not forecast.
  • Identifying mountain weather hazards in areas with few reporting points.

Delia Colvin is a 15 year veteran of Air Traffic Control and Flight Service and the author of the Aviation Weather Made Easy series. She was Flight Watch qualified and has investigated the cause of many aircraft incidents/accidents in a professional capacity with Quality Assurance, as well as conducting countless Operation Take-offs for pilots around the country.

Delia Colvin and Fly-Rite volunteer to do these webinars for the aviation community through the FAA Safety office. Because of that, and to improve the webinar experience, Delia Colvin and Fly-Rite come out of pocket. To help cover these costs, Delia may spend a 5-10 minutes of the 60-90 minute presentation sharing products that pilots often request
