with meterologist Scott Dimmich

Thursday, July 18 – 8pm ET

Flying and weather are inseparable.  Every pilot must understand weather fundamentals and possess a healthy curiosity of the unknown.  In addition to weather theory, never has there been more weather information more readily available to pilots. To use this information for your maximum benefit, you need to know where to look and how to make effective use of the available weather tools.

Broadcast Meteorologist Scott Dimmich goes beyond the basics of weather theory to help you, as a pilot, make better, more informed interpretations of weather and make sound weather decisions in this free webinar presentation sponsored by Sporty’s.

Adds mobile compatibility and new scenario 

The FAA recently released an enhanced Runway Safety Pilot Simulator. The program was released last year as an interactive, self-guided resource designed to assist with teaching pilots surface safety best practices. The new and improved version is based directly on valuable feedback from pilots.

The simulator features interactive scenarios and supporting documents so you can utilize all available resources to make the best decisions.

The simulator is compatible with mobile devices and features a new 3-D animation, “Use The Airport Diagram.” Explore the Runway Safety Simulator at RunwaySafetySimulator.com.

The summer is still young and adventure awaits!  The good weather is upon us, Fly Ins are scheduled, and you can smell the pancakes in the air.  The freedom and adventure of general aviation knows no bounds.  Seize the moment this summer and stop dreaming, start flying.

1) Finish-Up – Are you (or someone you know) one of the thousands of aspiring pilots who started a flight training program, but didn’t finish? If so, you’re not alone and it’s probably a lot easier to pick back up then you think.  Whether your personal schedule became too hectic or you simply weren’t able to achieve the right continuity with an instructor or flight school, now is the time to engage a flight school and enroll in a “completion” program. Yes, we have those available at Sporty’s Academy.

2) Attend a Fly In – The Fly In represents one of the best opportunities to meet new friends and experience the warm community of aviation. Local Fly Ins are happening all over the country every weekend and often feature exhibits, activities for the entire family.
