AvWxWorkshops offers interactive weather training
There’s a new place to go for additional weather training. AvWxWorkshops is offering detailed weather training on specific topics with Web-based videos in a subscription service.
The site has a growing library of short videos that are “designed to take you beyond the basics and help fill in those gaps in knowledge and touch on areas you have yet to explore.” Most of the workshops are based on scenarios from real or theoretical flights.
Topics range from TAFs and convective outlooks to cloud types and air mass modification. The majority of the videos run between eight and 18 minutes; however, the Web site currently offers a two-part series on ice that runs more than four hours and a piece on the skew-T log that is more than two hours.
Individual videos can be purchased for less than $10, or yearly subscriptions are offered for $99.
