Topic from the latest AOPA infomail. Posted in a couple of places so it gets visibility (no pun intended)
'FLY' REAL-WORLD SCENARIOS IN WEATHERWISE ONLINE COURSE
Low ceilings and restricted visibilities are aviation's most deadly killers. But thankfully, with a little knowledge, you can minimize the risks these conditions pose. And you can do it without leaving the ground. By using special Microsoft Flight Simulator scenarios, you can "fly" many of the conditions explained in the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's new online course, "WeatherWise: Ceiling and Visibility." See what MVFR looks like, how fog really looks when it hangs out around rivers and lakes, and what happens if fog doesn't burn off as expected. You can even experience the eerie sensation of running into fog and clouds at night. The scenarios are available at the end of the free course. Or you can download them directly from AOPA Online if you have Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 version 9.1 or above.
Cool. That nice to hear. i'll have to check out AOPA's site and check it out.
Have d/loaded the flight scenarios and will try them later
