The National Weather Service is pleased to announce our 2013 aviation weather safety workshop. Get ready for an evening of engaging talks covering a number of topics related to aviation weather pertinent to those flying in West Texas. Presented by the individuals who collaboratively contribute to aviation forecasting in West Texas.
This year’s program focuses on enhancing one’s knowledge of the boundary layer—the region of the atmosphere in which almost all aviation accidents occur. Tips for anticipating approach conditions as well as for identifying shear and icing potential along your route of flight. This year’s program will also include a virtual up-close tour of the WSR-88D weather radar.
