Weather can play a huge factor in any pilots pre-flight planning and actual flight.  Weather is a complex subject that can affect an aircraft’s performance, ability to generate lift, along with many other things.  From the subtle forming of clouds, to thunderstorms and microbursts, how can you stay safe in the air?

San Carlos Flight Center invites CFI Russell Bowerman to cover the topic of weather theory. In this seminar he will provide a general outlook on weather and how it is created, how the coriolis effect affects weather, how to detect adverse weather patterns, fog, and much more.  Be more confident on your next flight knowing that you have made the right decisions for your flight.

If you have ever had difficulties trying to grasp the complexities of weather, then this is the seminar for you.



Russel Bowerman has always maintained an interest in aviation, visiting aviation museums, taking sightseeing flights, and staying up to date on all the newest fighter jets and airliners.  After receiving his Private Pilot Certificate in 2018, he decided to make a career of it, attaining his Commercial and CFI ratings. Russell has been teaching and loving it ever since. Beyond flying, he really enjoys travelling and feels lucky to meet new people and learn about their diverse backgrounds in the process of flight training.
