What Is Weather To Fly?

Weather To Fly Helps You “Get Smarter Each Time You Fly”.

Weather to Fly takes pilot capabilities plus aircraft limitations and weights them against the weather in the ultimate decision of “whether to fly”. Applying this methodology each and every flying day will help insure that you have some of your best, as well as safest flights.

This web site is designed to facilitate the Weather To Fly system and documentation of sources of weather information as outlined in the successful and extremely popular Weather To Fly programs. It is THE instructional program on meteorology for all types of light sport and ultralight aviation including sport planes, sailplanes, weight-shift control trikes, powered parachutes, powered paragliders, paragliders, hang gliders, and balloons. It is accompanied by a Log Book.
