8:00 - 17:00 Airborne Weather Radar - Presented by Radar Training International

 Presented By  Erik Eliel

Radar Training International Inc. (RTI) was founded in 2004, and specializes in customized airborne weather radar seminars for Fortune 500 companies and the manufacturers of aircraft weather radar. Although the foundation of the seminar is anchored in the tactics, techniques and limitations of airborne weather radar, this program has evolved into a comprehensive convective weather program for pilots and now includes other critical topics such as human factors, risk management and properly integrating NEXRAD technology into the overall weather strategy.

RTI’s program has been presented to pilots representing corporate flight departments, the Department of Defense, and aviation/owner-operator associations, as well as the dispatchers and meteorologists of aviation-related companies; industry safety standdowns; and the pilots, engineers and marketing representatives of a major manufacturer of airborne weather radar. This increasingly popular program is commonly booked more than a year in advance for large venues, and the critiques consistently rank it as one of the most popular.

RTI founder and president, Erik Eliel, is currently flying the Boeing 737 for a major airline and has logged over 11,000 total flying hours. From 1987 until 2001, Erik was an active duty Air Force pilot with assignments to the T-38, C-141 and U-2. His radar and weather-related articles have been published in the NBAA Journal of Business Aviation and in Business & Commercial Aviation. His input has also been solicited for safety-orientated publications such as the Flight Safety Foundation’s magazine AeroSafety World. Erik and radar legend Archie Trammell were also featured on Business & Commercial Aviation’
