Introduction to WeatherSpork
Preflight weather planning using WeatherSpork
Date and Time:
Tuesday, April 10, 2018, starting at 13:00 Eastern Daylight Time Download Calendar File
David A. Buser
Brief Description:

It's no secret that weather can be quite complex at times keeping you grounded.  Sifting through dozens of weather charts and sorting through a bunch of antiquated text isn't a very effective way to make a go or stay decision. But there are better ways to make your preflight flight planning a breeze.  In this discussion we will plan a cross country flight using WeatherSpork and demonstrate how to use its visualization tools and the "Wheels Up Departure Adviser" to find that perfect time to depart.
