GA FLIGHT SIM TRAINING
One of the most fascinating subjects in flying is meteorology - the study of weather. After all, flying is all about our motion through the same environment that generates all manner of weather. In this issue of our GA flight sim tutorial, we examine some of the basics that better prepare us for more complex navigation techniques.
