Take observations at airfields, supplementary weather stations or any of the other jobs that require accurate observations and data, or learn as a hobby.

Learn terms, concepts, processes and procedures that Aviation Weather Observers need to understand for accurate professional observing.

If you need weather certification from the National Weather Service, this course will prepare you to take and PASS the certification examination.

After years of teaching weather observing to many hundreds of students, we have identified which concepts "throw" students and how to explain them in a way you will understand and remember. The text and illustrations along with the video on the website clearly communicate the information you need to take complete observations. Each chapter even has a "quick and dirty" section with terms and concepts that are critical to a successful observation.

Also included is a bonus CD with the complete SAWRS training manual to supplement the WeatherWing training manual, the Weather Service Operational Handbook #8, the FMH-1, and other interesting and useful supplements.

"I'd worked as an observer for years, but needed to re-certify.  I learned more in this course than I ever imagined I could and I passed the exam with flying colors. I am also definately a better observer"  TS, Louisiana


I knew nothing about weather at all.  My new job depended on passing the weather observer certification test.  Thanks to the patience and personal attention you gave us all, the entire class passed. JB, Texas


"When my company sent me to this class I thought I didn't need the training.  I was wrong.  Thanks"   RB, Texas


You are the "Gold Standard" of teaching.  Absolutely the best teacher I have ever had.  DG, Louisiana
