The Met Office College offers a selection of courses covering all aspects of aviation meteorology for the general aviation community.
We help delegates prepare for the meteorological elements of the PPL, PPL(B) , CPL(B) and BGA Bronze 'C' badge and blend theoretical meteorological knowledge with practical exercises.
Training is aimed at aviators of all levels of competence.
Our courses and training include:
Meteorology for Aviators is aimed at light-aircraft pilots of all levels of competency and covers topics such as basic meteorological theory and the interpretation of meteorological charts.
Weather decision-making for pilots brings together knowledge in aviation meteorology theory and interpretation skills with Meteorological Threat and Error Management (TEM).
The two basic meteorology courses that the Met Office College provides for General Aviation pilots regularly receive fantastic feedback and have many returning customers.

Meteorology for Balloonists is designed to broaden and enhance the balloonist's knowledge of aviation weather.
Meteorology for Gliders is designed to broaden and enhance the glider pilot's knowledge of aviation weather, particularly in relation to low-level planning and safety.
A good understanding of meteorology is vital for safe and enjoyable flying. The Met Office and Oxford Aviation Training have produced a CD-ROM that helps pilots master aviation meteorology.
