Weather Statement Groundschool is a CD-ROM-based course on METAR’s and TAF’s. Nearly 2 hours of stunning, interactive training is provided.
This tutorial on METAR’s and TAF’s is unlike any other such training.
It not only teaches the most basic aspects of METAR’s and TAF’s, but also provides training on components that most pilots are unaware of. Still, learning is made easy and fun, through full voice narration and easy-to-use controls.
Weather Statement Groundschool promotes learning through human interaction—not just rote memorization. A remarkable feature is the interactive weather controls, which enable the user to “control the weather.” For example, the user can specify wind speed, gust factor, direction, and other variables, and can then view how the weather statement displays this information. Since weather codes are confusing to interpret, the user can click the “Speak-It” button to hear a verbal translation. This allows the user to correlate codes with a true, visual picture and understanding of the weather.
This tutorial CD is perfect for all pilots, from students to rated pilots who wish to remain sharp and proficient. It’s also ideal for airport personnel, dispatchers, and anyone else who needs to view aviation weather information.
