Offshore Meteorological Observer – Training Course ONLINE



The role of the meteorological observer has grown crucial in the oil and gas sector. It has been demonstrated that a more accurate weather report provided by a qualified meteorological observer has improved flight safety records. The present weather at the helideck must be described in a radio message weather report that meteorological observers are expected to produce.
