Another US AOPA case study...

#1 Post by TheGreenGoblin » Sun Aug 02, 2020 6:02 am

Today I am off to an advanced tutorial at my nearest friendly flight training establishment in the use SkyDemon VFR planning and navigation application and the integration thereof with other flying aids such as ADS-B and P3i and I was wondering whether the application will one day be able to be connected to something akin to the US NEXRAD system here in UK/Europe?

In anticipation of which I was looking at NEXRAD and then came across this salient lesson, once again, in the need to really understanding what you specific tool is really telling you! Yet another superb and thought provoking video from the ever active and supportive US AOPA and their Air Safety team.

You have to give to the USA they are on the mark with their roll out and use of these technologies in the GA space as well.

I will continue to buy sharpeners for my chinagraph pencil and study and mark up the relevant charts and produce a traditional PLOG but this product is also going to be a permanent fixture from now on. More features than my current Garmin GPS which will be used as a backup. Only a luddite would be blind to the huge advantages a well hooked version of this product can give a pilot.
