Aviation Weather (FLT230)


Course Memo

Multiple phases of meteorology are examined and applied by students. Principles of meteorology, familiarization with pre-flight weather briefings, enroute weather reports and weather hazards are studied, preparing students for flight applications. The laboratory portion ensures that the use of Direct User Access Terminals (DUATs) is completely integrated in flight plan preparation by using weather maps and forecasts. This course can be taken as a basic science elective and any students wishing to participate in the College’s partnership program with the Federal Aviation Administration, the Air Traffic Collegiate Training Initiative (ATCTI) program. Students not in the AT-CTI program can take an alternative section of the weather course, ATC220, ATC Weather. See the Student Advisement Center for more information.
