FAASafety.gov recently launched a new online course Conducting Preflight Self-Briefings for IFR Pilots to provide important guidance to instrument pilots on how to conduct a safe and thorough preflight self-briefing using automated weather resources. Developed by Flight Service, the course will help ensure pilots understand aviation weather basics and how to apply meteorological and aeronautical information in a systematic manner to plan a safe flight. It includes scenarios, real-life examples, videos, reference materials, and even practice exercises.
