Additional Event Information & Acknowledgement of Industry Sponsor(s):

Continuing the tradition of fantastic aviation weather seminars, Michael Cetinich of Jeppesen will present this three-part seminar about mountain weather.

The first part is a look at the nuances of weather caused by mountainous terrain.

After a short break, we will have an in-depth (non-political)  look at climate and change, what causes climate to vary and annual influences to weather such as the ENSO pattern.

Finally we'll have a near-real time flying scenario and look at the weather to help determine a go/no-go decision and/or alternatives.

Seating is limited, so please sign up only if you are likely to attend.  If you sign up and are unable to attend, please let us know.

This is part of the monthly seminar series sponsored by Independence Aviation, based at Centennial and Rocky Mountain Metro Airports.
