Oxford Aviation Training has developed this self-teach, media-rich, interactive Computer Based Training (CBT) course of theoretical and practical Meteorology aimed at both student and qualified pilots. Instruction is up to JAA ATPL level, but as the course is designed for beginners it is suitable for CPL and PPL pilots, too.

The main aim of this CBT is to give pilot-oriented training in Aviation Meteorology theory and to teach pilots to use this theory to interpret weather forecasts and reports in order to plan safe and expeditious flying sorties. The secondary aim of the CBT is to teach pilots how to extract and interpret weather and forecast conditions information from the various aviation weather reporting services.

Part 1 - Aviation Meteorology Theory

This section covers the requirements of the JAA ATPL theoretical knowledge syllabus for Meteorology and much more. Emphasis is placed on the practical significance of meteorological phenomena for pilots. The self-assessment tests with feedback, are available both in the form of general tests and tests in JAA and FAA formats.

Part 2 - Flight Briefing Information

This section contains instruction on types of forecast available to pilots and interpretation of forecasts for flight planning purposes, e.g. METARs, TAFs, spot wind charts, significant weather charts, etc. In the case of METARs and TAFs, there are separate lessons covering both the JAA and FAA conventions.
