Welcome to Weather Clinic Confidential!
Your Aviation Weather Webinar Resource

Nothing creates more doubt, changes more flight plans, or grounds more aircraft than weather. It’s the most dynamic force on the planet; it’s also the least controllable. In our all-new weather webinar series, Jeppesen’s aviation experts will give you an insider’s view of the ins and outs of all things weather--so that we can all be a little more 'Wx wise!'

Turbulence can run the gamut from a choppy annoyance to creating loss of control and safety of flight events. Knowing how to detect and avoid turbulence is a critical part of flight planning, managing passenger expectations or even making a go/no go decision. In this encore presentation of our Taming turbulence webinar, we'll review the latest tools to help you determine where turbulence currently exists, where it's forecast to develop and how to better use those insights to plan and operate in order to minimize the impact of turbulence on future flights.

Climate and Global Weather Patterns - How They Impact Your Flying

2016-01-20 2:00 PM 2016-01-20

"Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get." This Robert Heinlein quote describes the difference between climate and weather. Pilots are trained to know WHAT the weather is doing and what it is expected to do during a flight. But have you ever asked WHY? Why do you get the weather you get where you fly? Where does it come from? How does it arrive? Where does it go? Where does it end, or does it? In this webinar, we'll look at weather on a global scale, show you how the weather around the world is interconnected and help you see how a weather system in Shanghai, China can impact flying over Sheboygan, Wisconsin... and every point in between.
