Garmin Aviation Weather Radar 2.0

The Garmin produced Aviation Weather Radar 2.0 eLearning course provides in-depth instruction on the fundamental operation of this highly capable weather radar system.
1.5 hours

Completing this course enables a pilot to perform basic tilt and range management functions while having a foundational understanding of how to analyze and interpret a weather radar display.
An airborne weather radar can be a great tool to help detect and avoid adverse weather during flight. The Garmin Aviation Weather Radar eLearning course goes beyond the content of weather radar pilot's guides to help you maximize the benefits of your weather radar system's capabilities. This course will introduce you to radar fundamentals, operational principles, industry standard practices and operational considerations and techniques for all phases of flight. This course also addresses the features, functions and operation of three of Garmin's airborne weather radars: GWX 70, GWX 75 and GWX 80, as well as reviews techniques employed for managing weather threats. The course culminates with an interactive exercise that allows you to manipulate the controls as various features and settings are reviewed.
