Customized Airborne Weather Radar Seminars

RADAR TRAINING INTERNATIONAL INC. (RTI) specializes in customized on-site seminars, tailored to your specific aircraft radar and mission. The cornerstone of the training is our comprehensive 6-hour program which begins with a brief overview of radar basics and progresses into advanced concepts necessary to properly use on-board radar to its fullest potential.

Focused Training

RTI’s training, developed by pilot and instructor Erik Eliel, is geared toward highly-skilled professionals who seek increased confidence with their radar systems.

The seminars

  • are operationally practical, delivering information in a highly efficient, cost- effective manner;
  • provide an objective and unbiased source of information regarding radar technology and capability;
  • discuss NEXRAD radar capabilities/limitations and how to properly integrate this technology into operational decisions.
  • include quality take-home seminar materials, including RTI’s color Airborne Weather Radar PILOT’S OPERATING GUIDE.

Extensive Network

Our commitment to clients from the beginning is for an exceptional program, but it does not end there. For over ten years, we’ve been building relationships with industry experts. An important component of our service and long-term commitment to clients is our access to this extensive network:

  • meteorologists
  • severe-weather scientists
  • vendors of aviation weather products
  • representatives of the radar and radome manufacturers

Enhanced Safety

RTI’s goal is to enhance aviation safety. Our programs have benefited an array of aviation professionals who seek uncompromising standards of safety and excellence:

“After 25 years of conducting radar training sessions worldwide without a successor in sight, I was deeply discouraged until Erik came along. He’s a most worthy successor to those pioneers in airborne weather radar use and training, Bob Buck, Jim Cook, and Jean Lee.”
