Strap into a Cessna P210 & Cardinal RG with weather flying expert Richard L. Collins and learn all about summer weather flying in this classic video – now available as an app. With over 110 minutes of expert weather instruction shot in and around airplanes, you’ll go beyond the basics to learn how to apply weather theory to real-world situations. You’ll go on actual flights with Collins to explore the relationship between forecast weather and real conditions, and how complex weather systems affect the airplane.

Using a visual menu system, Advanced Summer Weather Flying is broken down into 19 individual video segments, allowing quick access to each topic.

Also included is a review quiz based on content from the videos. After finishing the questions, you’ll receive instant feedback on your score and be able to review missed questions. There’s even a way to quickly review the video segment from which the question is based.
