Private/Instrument/Commercial/Helicopter Pilot Initial Training requires studying, understanding and memorizing and so many aviation weather terms ranging from METAR-TAF, SIGMETs, PIREP to Weather Fronts, Lifting Forces, High-Low Pressure Systems.
This Poster is called ‘Aviation Weather & Chart, Limitations and Recommended Techniques ` and covers the essential aviation weather terms, definitions and techniques. The main purpose of Aviation Weather & Chart, Limitations and Recommended Techniques is to give you some self-confidence during your training period and help visualize the subject matters in your mind. This poster provides an effective and practical approach to your initial flight training. As long as you succeed in visualizing all aviation weather terms and definitions presented in the poster, this daily & hourly exercise will make your theory & practical flight training shorter, more successful, and sustainable.
Why is visualizing the subject matters in our mind so important in Flight Training?
Visualizing the images is a learning style. Information may be learned in a variety of ways: by seeing or hearing, by reflecting or acting, analyzing or visualizing, or it may be learned piecemeal or steadily. Evidence from the scientific community has shown that Visualization and Imagining allows us to remember effectively and mentally rehearse our intended movements. Visualization and action are intimately connected, involving the motor cortex. Over time the brain learns our routine movements, allowing these actions to become more automatic and fine-tuned.
This unique ` Aviation Weather & Chart, Limitations and Recommended Techniques ` poster has been designed in the light of aforementioned information, using colorful graphics and definitions in colored boxes, step-by-step procedure descriptions, helpful hints to help grab the information ASAP while keeping all visualized images in your mind.
What’s the technique in visualizing the images and essential data? How frequently should this be practiced?
Hang up the poster in front of you.
Look at the images for a few moments, several times in a day. (Perspective is also important. )
Close your eyes, and try to visualize the object as clearly as you can, without opening your eyes, for as long as you can, even if it is only for a few seconds at first.
Try to see and remember all the details. (For example, Weather Fronts, VFR, IFR and SVFR Limitations, TAF & METAR Terms, Severe Weather Reports
