Weather Checklist

Soaring Pilot's Weather. This set of links is a very abbreviated form of the self-briefing soaring weather check list supplied by our resident Met expert Dr Nils Wedi. These are useful if you would like to plan a flight about 18 hours or less before take-off. Some of the links also provide forecast maps 2-5 days ahead.

If you click on each of the links in turn you end up with a seperate browser tab open with each site displayed.

Advanced Checklist

If the list above is gobbledegook to you, then you need to attend Dr Nils Wedi's annual weather lecture for Cross Country Pilots.


Webcams are a great way to track the arrival or clearance of weather.
