Lightning Detection Systems Computer-based Trainer
Computer-based Lightning Detector Trainer

The CD-ROM based training program from ElectronicFlight Solutions highlights the two lightning detection systems, the L3 Goodrich Stormscope™ and Insight StrikeFinder™. The overall general theory of thunderstorms and lightning detection is explained before progressing into the specifics of strike interpretation. The self-guided training then highlights the operation of the StrikeFinder™ and Stormscope™. The training continues with the specific operation of the Stormscope™ on Goodrich’s own CRT display, the Avidyne FlightMax, Bendix/King KMD-550/850 and Garmin GPS-430/530 display systems.

The training implants the knowledge of lightning strike symbology, thunderstorm depiction, weather environment interpretation, limitations, operation modes and the formulation of weather avoidance strategies.

After successful completion of this training module, the operation and familiarity of the lightning detection systems should become second nature when it counts the most—under high-workload situations. At the very core of the self-paced CBT (computer-based training) program is the ElectronicFlight Complete Learning™ Methodology that focuses on the following basic elements:

  • Instill conceptual knowledge, instead of rote memorization
  • Implant mental models (a picture imprinted into permanent memory)
  • Present the conceptual organization of a system
  • Provide requisite knowledge using highly graphical methods
  • Reinforce knowledge with targeted practice exercises
  • Implement feedback and remedial review when checked for retention
