Airborne Radar is the ONLY interactive course teaching the use of airborne weather radar and thunderstorm safety. This is no simple slideshow or video – it's full hands-on interactivity that you won't find anywhere else. Drag items, turn knobs, and interact with radar and thunderstorms, all with your comfort of your iPad. Three hours of training, full audio narration, and over 130 quiz questions make learning easy.

Airborne Radar goes beyond use of airborne radar, teaching thunderstorm theory, hazards of thunderstorms, airborne radar theory, and airborne radar techniques. A Final Exam concludes the course, enabling the user to test their knowledge. FAA WINGS credit may be obtained upon completion of the Final Exam.

Why Airborne Radar?

Most seasoned professional pilots will admit that there has always been a lack of adequate weather radar training. The mantra has always been, "fly the airplane, and figure it out as you go." But, that's no way to learn to avoid thunderstorms and use radar. Now, Airborne Radar gives you the knowledge and comfort to fly safely, providing the only source of thorough, interactive training on airborne weather radar.

The effective use of airborne weather radar is essential to anyone flying radar-equipped aircraft. Numerous aircraft accidents have occurred due to flight crews’ inadequate knowledge of thunderstorms and the use of radar. Airborne Radar helps provide that basis of knowledge. The goal is to provide the best radar training available, to make the pilot confident and knowledgeable about thunderstorm hazards.
