A Meteorological Self-Briefing System for Glider Pilots

The speaker, with the German Weather Service (DWD), has developed a glider pilot self-briefing system for Europe. The system resides at www.flugwetter.de. Using the system, a pilot is able to 'fly' a planned task through a numerical weather prediction to determine the task's feasibility. After the flight, the forecast can be checked using the resulting flight-recorder file. During the 2009 soaring season, as an experiment, the DWD operated the system for the East Coast USA and Colorado. The East Coast system was validated using data from glider contests and, with a few qualifications, it was found successful (no contests occurred in Colorado). This revolutionary system will be explained and demonstrated.
