Instructor: David Balcaen

Automated flight monitoring and weather services play a crucial role in enhancing flight safety by addressing multiple safety challenges 24 hours a day, ensuring that operational control is always prioritized. This technology assists in making informed go/no-go decisions quickly and accurately, especially in marginal weather conditions, by providing thorough and precise weather analyses. It’s essential to remember that one should never launch into known instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) along a route, as these services are designed to prevent high-risk flights from taking off, thereby significantly mitigating flight risks.
