Aviation Training Video – Weather Briefing
This is a small excerpt from disc 1 of the aviation training video course available at http://www.FlywithB.com. In this clip certified flight instructor Brendan Quinn-Narkin calls a flight service station to request a standard weather briefing.
It is important that before each flight a pilot receive a weather briefing. Even if you know that the weather is clear, it is important because the briefer will inform you about any NOTAMs or Notices to Airmen which might affect your flight. NOTAMs can include such things as runway closures or temporary flight restrictions.
In the aviation training course at http://www.FlywithB.com you learn exactly how to obtain a standard weather briefing from a flight service station.
