What aviation weather training do you provide primary students
An email announcement about an upcoming aviation webinar had me recalling the amount of education I got on aviation weather when I was a primary student.
Which was not a whole heck of a lot.
I was shown how to understand the point observations of a METAR and a few of the forecast tools like the FA and the TAFs. But very little on how to find info on weather trends, weather products of significance, or how to interpret these items to make a go-no go decision.
So, for today's discussion...
1a) [CFI's], how much aviation weather education to you provide your primary student?
1b) [Non-CFI's], how much weather education were you provided as a primary student?
2) Would providing an increased depth of aviation weather education to the primary student be of value to the fledgling pilot?
3) if 2 is a "yes", what areas of aviation weather would you label as "must know", "should know", "it would be good to know", and "can be taught during instrument flying training"?
