Sporty’s latest DVD, “Airspace and Weather Format Review,” provides an introduction to or refresher of aviation weather and airspace.
With 3-D graphics and animation, this program demystifies the complex types of airspace. The DVD explains the various classes of airspace, their operating rules, dimensions and charting symbols.
Examples are given for each class of alphabet airspace as well as Special Use Airspace. Also included are sections on TFRs, national security areas, military intercept procedures and the Washington, D.C., ADIZ and its laser-based Visual Warning System.
The weather format portion takes you through the ICAO weather formats and abbreviations of METARs and TAFs. You will learn to read and interpret aviation weather reports and extract additional clues they provide about atmospheric conditions.
This program also covers the basics of ASOS and AWOS reports and includes an interactive on-screen weather decoder that puts more than 1,500 weather contractions at your fingertips.
