Air Transport Pilot's Licence (ATPL) Aviation Meteorology
The main aim of this CBT is to give pilot-oriented training in Aviation Met theory and to teach pilots to use this theory to interpret met forecasts and reports in order to plan safe and expeditious flying sorties. The secondary aim of the CBT is to teach pilots how to extract and interpret met information from the Met Office's web site.
Suitable for: Beginners, CPL and PPL pilots.

Oxford Aviation Training and the Met Office have developed a self-teach, media-rich, interactive Computer Based Training (CBT) course of theoretical and practical Meteorology aimed at both student and qualified pilots. Instruction is up to JAA ATPL level, but as the course is designed for beginners it is suitable for CPL and PPL pilots, too.
- A self-teach, media rich, interactive computer based training (CBT) course in Aviation Meteorology.
- Covers JAA ATPL Theoretical Knowledge Learning Objectives.
- Also suitable for PPL and CPL.
- Includes both JAA and FAA style self assessment test questions up to ATPL.
- Comprehensive coverage of all types of forecasts and reports: TAFs, METARs, Spot Wind charts, etc.
- Links to Met Office and Aviation Weather websites.
Part 1 - Aviation Meteorology Theory
This section covers the requirements of the JAA ATPL theoretical knowledge syllabus for Meteorology and much more besides. Emphasis is placed on the practical significance of meteorological phenomena for pilots. The self-assessment tests, with feedback, are available both in the form of general tests and tests in JAA and FAA formats. As the theory course is designed for beginners it is suitable for CPL and PPL pilots, too.
Part 2 - Flight Briefing Information
This section contains instruction on types of forecast available to pilots and interpretation of forecasts for flight planning purposes, e.g. METARs, TAFs, spot wind charts, significant weather charts, etc. In the case of METARs and TAFs, there are seperate lessons covering both the JAA and FAA conventions.
