Get Sector Briefed Like the Center Controllers Do

Want to get a quick big picture briefing for an area for a day? You can do this like the controllers to if you check out the Pre-Duty Wx Briefing that Center controllers get when the come on station each day.

A generally 2-3 minutes synopsis of the general conditions that will take place in a broad sector area, controllers get this briefing before they go on station and start working with pilots flying in their sectors each day.

You can check out the Pre-Duty Wx Briefing for controllers by clicking here or the image to the right above.
