From 2009 to 2018, turbulence accounted for 42% of weather related accidents according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) database. This makes turbulence the leading cause of weather related accidents for Part 91 general aviation pilots. To help pilots mitigate these types of accidents, the Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) FLYERS (FLYing Education, Resources, and Safety) team will be hosting a virtual webinar on turbulence education and avoidance. This free virtual webinar will cover the basics of turbulence and low level wind shear, including how NWS aviation forecasters warn pilots of these hazards and where pilots can find turbulence information online. The webinar will last approximately 1 hour.
