Weather is a major factor in the ability of pilots to safely and successfully conduct flights. It is the same for pilots seeking training. We all know that canceling training flights slows down training which can result in increased training costs, and if nothing else, can just be really frustrating for a pilot working to get a rating or certificate completed.
Florida is known as the Sunshine State so you may assume there is no bad time to start your career in pilot training. And that’s largely true as long as you’re ready for the heat and humidity in the summertime and sometimes chilly temperatures in the winter. When putting the weather into context, it’s important to remember how big Florida is. So the weather across the state, especially north to south, can vary quite a bit — especially during the winter.
