The Weather Radar module is designed to provide the required understanding and knowledge for flight crews to assess summer time weather conditions that may be potentially hazardous to flight. The module includes a detailed operational perspective on using onboard airborne and data uplinked NEXRAD weather radar. We also present specific incidents about weather-related accidents and incidents in turbine business aircraft flown by professional flight crews.
This module also includes information on the following documents:
- FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 00-24C Thunderstorms and AC 00 45H Aviation Weather Services
- NTSB Safety Alert 11 Thunderstorm Encounters and Safety Alert 17 In-Cockpit NEXRAD Mosaic Imagery
