- Aviation Weather (AVF-203) 3.00 s.h.
Analysis of aviation weather which is appropriate for a professional commercial pilot. Weather hazards including thunderstorms, turbulence, wind shear, restrictions to visibility, icing and hydroplaning will be discussed; weather services will be explained. Details of using coded weather reports, forecasts, weather charts and prognostic charts will be utilized in class for flight planning and in-flight decision making.
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:
- Explain the theory of weather, and its impact on aviation and flight operations, including atmospheric composition and atmospheric circulation systems.
- Demonstrate or explain how to conduct basic aviation weather forecasting.
- Discuss aviation weather hazards such as wind shear, icing, severe weather, and other similar phenomena.
- Explain how to read and interpret weather charts and maps, routine meteorological reports and forecasts (METARs, TAFs, PIREPs, SIGMETs, etc.).
- Analyze and explain the impact of weather on aviation businesses.
- Demonstrate how to gather, analyze, and use weather data during preparation for flight operations, including the impact of such information on decisions to fly or not fly.
