We train pilots to simply, quickly & accurately identify the SIX Aviation Weather Hazards in a Preflight Weather Brief.

Whether you’re a student or experienced pilot,  we teach what no one else does: Not just weather. Not just inflight weather avoidance or equipment, but preflight weather risk assessment.

Most aviation accidents occur because the pilot failed to identify the weather hazards BEFORE the flight.

Our classes, books and webinars teach pilots how to quickly and correctly analyze the risk of encountering any of the six aviation weather hazards to dramatically improve safety.
