3(3 + 0)

Prerequisite: AES 1400, At least junior standing or Permission of instructor

This course builds upon the basic aviation weather knowledge required of pilots with particular emphasis on those aspects of weather affecting advanced flight operations. Stability and turbulence, clear-air turbulence, icing, jet stream weather and the use of airborne radar are considered. Weather-related aircraft accident reports with analysis of the influence of the weather factors involved are reviewed in detail. Students will develop the ability to project their knowledge of weather to conditions at airports in unfamiliar locations.
