I’ve found that my page, How to Read a Sectional has been pretty popular. I’m not surprised since it was something I struggled with at points in my training. While, I’m working on one for high altitude charts for instrument (and dispatch) students, I have added a new page. I’ve now added How to Read a METAR to my pages! My friend, Emily (yay! shout out!), was the one who did suggest it since she isn’t a student pilot but would love know how to read them.
As a student pilot, I knew how to get the information I needed from METAR and TAFs, but there were still things I didn’t understand in them. When I got my dispatch certificate I learned a lot more about these and now I feel much more confident that I’m not skipping over something or don’t understand it in the remarks section. Who really understands SLP? I know I didn’t!
Check out the page and let me know what you think! If you have any suggestions for other pages please comment, I’d love to know what other students struggle with in their training!
