Christmas Gift Ideas
Christmas is not that far away and I have some great Weather School gift ideas for you. There's my book and DVD (The Pocket Weather Forecaster and the Weather Why's DVD) and I am offering Weather School gift vouchers enabling you to buy Aviation Weather School vouchers (for Parts 1 and 2) and exchange them any time for Weather Schools as they are announced.
Aviation Weather Information Service (AWIS)
Your feedback to the flying forecasts (at http://www.weatherweb.net/awis/awis2.php) continues to be excellent. I have and will be adding more areas but have spent this week developing the feed for freezing levels, cloud bases and tops. Let me know what else you would like to see. AWIS exists not to replace the forecasts for flying today (F214/215, METARs and TAFs etc…) but to help you plan ahead and get the most for your flying). Once again, please send your feedback to me at emailing email@example.com
Weather School news
I have a tentative date of Saturday 12th March 2011 for the next Aviation Weather School (Part 1) to be held here in Wombourne. I am awaiting confirmation of the venue, but it will be here I Wombourne. If you would like to reserve your place, please do let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
For those of you who would like a more intensive weather learning experience, or if you have completed Part 1 and 2, I’m running Advanced Flying Weather on the weekend of 27 th/ 28 th February 2011. This will be an intensive two days of weather training from understanding how the weather works to using weather models, Internet data and making your own forecasts. It is being run for a maximum of three people and I currently have one space left on this course. For more information see http://www.weatherschool.co.uk
