Experience real-life weather briefing for home simulation or Aviation Training Device and practice your aviation decision skills!
ClimaDrive for PPN members improves flight training and simulation by allowing instructors, pilots, and student pilots to recreate challenging, historical weather events to test their decision skills. ClimaDrive access is a part of your regular Pilot Proficiency Network membership and is available for your local group's president via the PPN Chapter membership. ClimaDrive provides access to terabytes of historical weather products published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for the continental United States. It allows users to re-create historical flight scenarios, including full, aviation-standard, professional, pre-flight weather briefings.
If you are already a regular Pilot Proficiency Member,
please log in to your personal ClimaDrive account using this link.
Users can optionally access ClimaDrive's SimConnect software that links the weather briefings to compatible simulators to fly historical weather scenarios (see www.ClimaDrive.com). In fact, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) uses ClimaDrive to investigate weather-related flight accidents like the tragic accident involving Kobe Bryant.
