Online WX Briefings?

Tue Nov 27, 2001 8:30 am

Is there a URL to get online weather briefings for GA flying?

Thanks,

You might try:

http://www.dispatcher.org and look for the weather briefing link. Pretty good collection of stuff...

If you can't get access to DUATS, this page is nice...just like what you'd get in a standard briefing from an FSS.

You need a valid medical and pilot certificate to get into duats.com.

I recommend duats.com.
you can also try www.duat.com.

go to http://www.aeroplanner.com
You have to register and it's free. you can enter your hours into the logbook and check weather.

You can use your student certifcate on DUATs.
At worst, you screw up and die.

So can I get the same info online at DUATS that I get when I call FSS for a weather briefing? I really hate calling for weather briefings...no matter how many times I ask them to slow down they still talk too fast!
