The effective use of airborne weather radar is essential to anyone flying radar-equipped aircraft. Most seasoned professional pilots will admit, though, that there has always been a lack of adequate weather radar training. The mantra has always been, “fly the airplane, and figure it out as you go.” While this style of on the job training may work in a two-pilot airline crew or corporate aviation environment, it doesn’t help the GA pilot much when transitioning to larger, radar-equipped aircraft. Fortunately, a new Airborne Radar training app is now available for iPad that can help solve this problem.
