11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Location: EAA Pilot Proficiency Center
Presenter: Richard Mamrosh
Today’s automated weather observing systems have the advantage of being able to constantly monitor the weather, but have some disadvantages compared to human weather observers. Knowing how these systems work can help you use them effectively for a safe flight! This presentation will show how computer algorithms use the data from weather sensors to produce the METARs that pilots rely on for a safe flight.
