Understanding METARs Part 3 - Winds

Hey everyone and Happy Monday!

In continuing with the Understanding METARs series, this week I go over the Winds section and how to read the different types of coding as well as its role in which runway you take off from or land on. As a pilot, it is important to understand the differences in wind direction and runway headings.

Please post in questions that you may have as well as any tutorial requests. I hope that you find this tutorial to be helpful!

Happy and Safe Landings!

Nice. I watched all your tutorials. They are really helpful.

I have a request: I read online that airspace in the real aviation world is different from IF. Can you tell us when and how to contact ATC in certain spaces?
