Podcast: Long-Term Weather Implications for Aviation

Aug. 8, 2022

  • John Kosak, CAM, weather program manager, NBAA Air Traffic Services
  • Judy Reif, flight attendant, JR Flight Services and chair, NBAA Weather Subcommittee
  • Dr. Paul Williams, professor of atmospheric science, Department of Meteorology, University of Reading
