General Aviation Pilot’s Weather Guide

image The FAA has published a terrific Web page to help pilots collect and analyze weather information before, during, and after a flight.

The General Aviation Pilot’s Weather Guide is a portal to many useful resources, including VFR and IFR weather worksheets, and sources of information about the weather. Many of the references and guides are available as free .pdf downloads; check the Downloads tab at the site.

This well-organized and easy-to-use online Guide could also serve as an excellent lesson plan or template for a preflight briefing with students.

Most of the information on the site is available in a single document, General Aviation Pilot’s Guide to Preflight Weather Planning, Weather Self-Briefings, and Weather Decision-Making (.pdf).

The VFR and IFR weather worksheets (also available in .pdf format) will help you systematically collect and organize weather information and make good weather-related decisions.
