Advancements in modern aviation technology have produced aircraft of increased capacity, faster speed and longer range. With these advancements, the understanding of atmospheric phenomena becomes more critical as weather conditions place the aircraft in a vulnerable position. Despite the availability of forecasts and reports, flight planning and decision-making can be challenging under adverse weather conditions. Encounters with unfavourable weather elements can impact all phases of flight and affect safety, decision-making, fuel costs and profits. Therefore, analysing weather encounters would play a critical role in the operators’ overall safety programme.
This course will equip participants with the skills and methodology required to develop and implement the Weather Risk Control System (Wx-RCS) which is designed to enhance and support decision-making relating to changing weather conditions. Emphasis will be placed on identifying and understanding weather hazards and the contributing factors through investigation using a sound framework for analysing weather-related hazards and incidents. Through the fundamental understanding of risk control and management systems, the course aims to promote a healthy safety culture with a focus on Meteorology to reduce the probability of aircraft accidents.
