Weather is one of the most unpredictable factors in aviation and constantly affects flight operations. Weather conditions such as thunderstorms, sandstorms, crosswinds, snow, hail, volcanic eruptions, etc., create hazards and risks that affect the safety and performance of flight operations as well as take-off and landing approaches. The course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to determine the hazards and risks under adverse weather conditions. The methodology behind the development and implementation of the Weather Risk Management System, which is designed to enhance and support decision-making relating to the changing weather conditions at all phases of flight, will be covered. The course will also provide a better understanding of how human factors concepts, proactive forecasting systems and meteorological products and services can be utilized to support decision-making whether as a pilot, an air traffic controller or a forecaster.
