Our Weather module provides the required understanding and knowledge for flight crews to assess weather conditions that may be potentially hazardous to flight. The module covers the types of weather frontal systems that may be encountered and general conditions associated with each type. The following topics are presented in this module: Different types of cloud formations; Thunderstorms and the associated hazards of icing conditions, microburst, and windshear; high altitude weather, volcanic activity, and various regional weather phenomena; reading and understanding METAR and TAF products and a downloadable METAR/TAF key; and 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) 00-06B Aviation Weather, AC 00-24C Thunderstorms, AC 00-45H Aviation Weather Services, AC 00-54 Pilot Windshear Guide, and AC 91-74B Pilot Guide: Flight in Icing Conditions
  • Information for Operators (InFO) 18011, Updated Coding Requirements for Snow Pellets and Small Hail


After customization, this module satisfies your training program Airman Specific Basic Indoctrination curriculum on Weather and Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) information as well as the Meteorology section. We have organized the module to meet the training requirements required under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 135.345 and the testing requirements of 135.293 (a)6 and 7. During the customization process, our standard module is tailored to the guidance in your General Operations Manual (GOM) on operations near thunderstorms, icing conditions, and any other meteorological information published in your manuals.
The module is not required by the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) or Business Aviation Safety Consortium (BASC) standard. We do offer an IS BAO required Winter Operations/Surface Contamination module that includes some meteorology information, an IS BAO required High Altitude module that covers high altitude meteorology, and a Weather Radar module that addresses hazards of operating near thunderstorms.
