If winter's inclement weather has grounded you, put that time to good use with one of the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's many online courses. WeatherWise: Ceiling and Visibility will give you the tools to cope with two of the most challenging weather phenomena known to pilots. Many pilots don't realize that low ceilings and restricted visibilities are aviation's most deadly killers. With a little knowledge, you can minimize the risks that these conditions pose. The self-paced course is designed to take 45 to 60 minutes, and it qualifies for the ground training requirement of the FAA Wings program.
