July 7 (Sat) 12:00pm Weather Rules of Thumbs

Event Date: 
Saturday, July 7, 2018 - 12:00pm

As pilots we fly with rules of thumb.  Between aviate, navigate and communicate, we are simply too busy in the cockpit to focus on one thing too long.  In this seminar, Dave will take a look at 21 weather rules of thumb you can count on and use them as a canvas to enhance your understanding of the atmosphere.  Flying is all about options and knowing where the bad weather is as well as the good in both space and time. This will add to the safety of your flight.

 

Dave Kramer MD, an ophthalmologist for over 30 years, is an instrument rated, tailwheel, complex and high performance endorsed private pilot as well as a basic and instrument ground instructor with an interest in weather. He has been flying since 2012, has over 1000 hours of which over 400 have been in the IFR system.  He also enjoys long cross country flying, night flying and flying in the LA area.
