UK Weather Training Courses

Related to the helicopter safety evenings, I am talking to the Met Office about running some aviation weather interpretation course for helicopters pilots.

Can we have a show of hands, so I can see if there is enough demand for them to put the course on. They will be chargeable and I need to give them an idea of group size(s) so they can give me an idea of cost.

It'll probably be cheaper if we go to Exeter, but I will try and persuade them to come out to a more central location also.

appreciate what you said about the cost... but would be helpfull if you could give a rough idea as that will determin numbers too.

I suspect many people would be interested though?

I'm up for it. Midlands area would be easiest for me. Nice one for organising it

In theory, I would also be keen but Exeter would be pretty tricky from Norfolk, even if I flew down. Actually, I reckon I could drive it in less time than it would take me in a Schweizer!!!

Just hope that the nice man from the Met Office could be persuaded somewhere more central!

Cheers

I agree that you can never learn enough about weather. Count me in...but only if it's within a couple of hours drive of the Midlands; don't have time to go to Exeter or similar.

I'm interested, but cost and location will be the final determiners for me, unfortunately.

Gary dependent on exact date / time / cost / location you can count me in!

Especially after yesterdays bizarre weather - knowledge is power and all that.

At slight risk of thread creep, I am looking for a decent weather station (not specifically for aviation use). Does anyone have any recommendations.........?

Also interested potentially, depending on dates and cost.

(Prefer Gloucester or Cardiff but could do Exeter at a pinch.)
