Real World Weather

Weather is the single biggest variable in flying. It can turn a long-awaited vacation into a long wait at the FBO, a quick two-hour flight into a tedious four-hour slog, or a stress-free jaunt into a skill-testing ordeal. The variations are infinite, but for pilots it all boils down to two questions:

What’s really going on out there, and what does it mean for me?

The day-to-day challenge of answering those questions is the focus of our new seminar. We’ll take a no-nonsense look at how you can get better, more complete weather information—and make better, more informed decisions as a result. We’ll talk about:

  • The best weather resources, and when to use them
  • Situations that tempt smart pilots to make dumb choices
  • Weather-related accidents and the factors that led to them
  • Knowing what’s safe and what isn’t when things get “complicated”

Here's what pilots are saying about our safety seminars

"...a pilot who saw the TOLDs seminar last year says that she thinks our advice to "land straight ahead" may have saved her life this past year when she had an engine out. She uses the technique we teach of "spring loading" herself on every takeoff, and so she was able to instantly respond when the engine did fail. Even was able to stay on the runway!"

"A very potent presentation. Left me with a few, but powerful tools that I feel I could stick to in an emergency."

"The best I have been to — this was extremely beneficial."

"Good, fast-moving presentation — very practical with varied examples."

"Very good presentation! The instructor had the audience thinking through the entire evening."
