Additional or supplemental publications may be obtained as needed. The Chief Pilot must approve all airport-related subscriptions and major purchases of publications. Contract aircraft suppliers shall provide all required documents, manuals, approach and navigation charts and maps, certificates, licenses, logs and other written information for the aircraft being supplied. All contractor-supplied material must be complete and current. WEATHER Prior to each flight, the PIC will obtain aviation weather reports and forecasts and analyze the following data to determine the effect on the proposed operations: Latest NOTAM for the point of departure, route of flight, the destination and the alternate destination.

Safety Best Practices Manual Surface weather observations for pertinent stations. Forecasts for all pertinent routes and stations. Reports or forecasts of severe weather, turbulence or icing which could affect the proposed flight. Any known air traffic delays. Pilots will check weather forecasts sufficiently in advance of a proposed flight and notify Flight Dispatch of any conditions that may affect passenger schedules. This includes checking weather forecasts the night before an early morning scheduled departure. The PIC may delegate some of these duties, but will retain responsibility. SEVERE WEATHER AND WEATHER DETECTION DEVICES Flights into areas of known or forecast severe weather will be avoided to the maximum extent possible. When flight is necessary into areas of reported thunderstorms, icing, turbulence, etc., avoidance will be accomplished using visual means, airborne radar and, when available, air traffic control assistance. An operable weather radar must be installed in the aircraft if operation is planned into areas of known or forecast thunderstorm activity where avoidance cannot be accomplished by visual means. APPROACH AND LANDING MINIMUMS Each Department pilot making an IFR takeoff, approach, or landing at an airport (domestic or foreign) shall comply with the applicable instrument approach and weather minimums published for that facility. At airports where weather reporting services are available, Department pilots shall not initiate an instrument approach procedure unless the latest weather report for that airport, reports the visibility at or above the published IFR landing minimums as depicted on the applicable instrument approach procedure chart consistent with the operational status of the approach facility being used. If during an instrument approach that utilizes RVR for landing visibility, the RVR is reported to be below the required minimums before the aircraft has passed the FAF, the approach shall be aborted and a missed approach shall be executed. If the aircraft is inside of the FAF when the RVR is reported to have gone below minimum conditions, the pilot may continue the approach to DH or MDA.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
