Let's look at the reports and forecast you should be getting to ensure you're fully prepared for your flight.
Again, we recommend the aviation specific products available from MetService, they are designed for your needs.
Before you can understand the aviation meteorology products you need to know how to decode them. The CAA has produced a number of resources to help you do this:
- VFR Met Gap booklet
- Met Info poster
- Our website section on how to interpret Met
- Weather Card
- The last section in this course
In addition we have also developed a tool to automatically decode the Met information you get from the MetFlight website. This can also be downloaded as an app for your smart phone.
