Garmin has started a Weather Radar Operations eLearning Course through the flyGarmin website. The course introduces pilots to basic and intermediate weather radar operations and goes beyond the pilot’s guide, ensuring pilots utilize the benefits provided by on-board weather radar.

· Understanding weather radar fundamentals
· Increasing situational awareness through a combined use of airborne weather radar and NEXRAD
· Weather avoidance decision-making and utilizing risk management practices
· Operational weather radar techniques with an emphasis on tilt and range management
· Weather radar display interpretation
· Automation management and competency
