This is the audio version of an FAA Safety Briefing LiveVideo Broadcast.

The original LiveVideo broadcast can be accessed at https://www.FAASafetyBriefing.com/March-April2020.html and qualifies for FAA WINGS and/or AMT Credits.

The MarApr 2020 issue focuses the variety of tools and technology aviators can use to avoid and/or safely mitigate what we’ve dubbed as UMC, or Unfriendly Meteorological Conditions.

Feature articles cover some of the FAA’s weather research work and programs, including more effective ways to convey cockpit weather imagery, icing avoidance, and the use of weather cameras. We also sit down with the new FAA Administrator, Steve Dickson, to discuss his take on general aviation safety.

NOTE: While many of the ideas covered in the quiz are included in the presentation, to complete this course you may need to download a copy of the magazine from: https://www.faa.gov/news/safety_briefing/2020/media/MarApr2020.pdf
