Lunch & Learn: The Weather Analysis Behind Every Flight You Take
May 14 @ 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm
Aviation depends heavily on the weather, and they’ve been collecting data on it as long as anyone. While they’re busy flying, they need a data nerd to comb through all those numbers and find something interesting.
A ridiculous amount of planning goes into every flight and every airport that most flyers never know about, much of it centered on the weather. You’re safer than you realize up there, because of what we measure down here.
Who Should Attend?
Anyone who gets excited about finding interesting things buried in millions upon millions of numbers.
