Systematic Review of Weather Observation and Forecast Resources Available to General Aviation Pilots
Weather continues to be a consistent hazard for pilots despite decades of progress in both pilot education and weather observation and forecasting technology. Much research has been done on the various facets of this problem, from pilot psychology to the weather information sources themselves. Weather-Intelligent Navigation Data and Models for Aviation Planning (WINDMAP) is a NASA University Leadership Initiative (ULI) that aims to use Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to improve the accessibility and accuracy of weather information for General Aviation (GA) pilots and UAS operators. This paper aims to produce a systematic review of research on the topic using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta Analyses (PRISMA) method that will then guide a further survey-based study of source utilization by GA pilots and UAS operators. Through the survey, we aim to evaluate satisfaction and need for improvements among weather products and education.
