Redesigning Weather-related Training and Testing of General Aviation Pilots: Phase II

The purpose of the research is to conduct a comprehensive review and evaluation of weather-related flight training, testing, and standards for general aviation (GA) pilots using criteria derived from the analysis of factors known to contribute to visual flight rules (VFR) flight into Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) accidents. Also, to develop advanced flight simulation scenarios, based on known VFR flight into IMC accident profiles, to empirically train, test and evaluate the skills of VFR-only pilots in applying basic weather knowledge.
