Pilots Needed for Study on Meteorological Wea
 
We are seeking pilots to volunteer for a study examining how meteorological information displays affect pilot weather decision-making. Licensed pilots and currently enrolled student pilots who are at least 18 years of age and live in the US are eligible to participate.
As you know, adverse weather conditions in aviation can lead to delays, deviations, and even accidents. As a result, the Georgia Institute of Technology is conducting a study on how different weather display technology influences pilot decision-making.
As a participant in this study, you will be asked to complete an online demographic questionnaire regarding your flight experience, ratings, and other items. Following the demographic questionnaire, the participant pilots will be asked to evaluate various weather scenarios. The study will take roughly 1-hours to complete, and the participants will have to evaluate 30 weather situations. We hope that you will consider participating and assisting us in learning more about weather display technology. Participation will assist us in learning more about weather display technologies with the goal of improving aviation safety. The supported internet browsers are Chrome 4.0 or higher, and Firefox 4.0 or higher. In addition, JavaScript must be enabled. We recommend using a laptop or a desktop. If you work at a secure government facility, you may need to use a personal device due to security constraints.

This study will produce bogus results.

If the TAF is above mins we're going. Thunderstorm, ice, wind equal more fuel, might land, might not. Done in 30 seconds. Next.
