Obtaining and interpreting weather information

Meteorology is a complex but essential subject that directly affects the outcome of our drone operations. A grasp of the principles is essential to allow us to plan our operation safely, always making sure we can operate within the limitations of our aircraft and operations manual.

The weather is one of the hardest things to judge if you’re a drone operator. With practice however and using the right tools, it’s usually possible to reach an informed view of what the weather will bring.

Fortunately, we have a lot of useful weather aids that we can use to help us build up a good picture of the forecast.
