Warm Weather Operations (eLearning)

Many aviation accidents and incidents are caused by warm weather meteorological phenomena. In this course, the pilot will gain a better understanding of meteorology and will be better equipped to make safety decisions during hail, lightning, high and low altitude turbulence, low level wind shear, strong surface crosswinds, and heavy rain. By improving the pilot’s ability to interpret warm weather hazards, they will be able to assess the risks involved in trying to beat hazardous weather to the runway or rushing a departure before hazardous weather arrives.

This course is compliant with Transport Canada CASS 724.115(6)(j).

This course is also available via Adaptive Recurrent eLearning, which provides a more targeted online training experience. Learn more on the Adaptive Recurrent course page.
