"Dan's passion and intensity about airborne weather radar is infectious!
with Dan at a fractional company many years ago I was fortunate enough to
things in using a radar. It is especially interesting and educational to fly
with Dan during thunderstorm season in the Midwest. At times flying with Dan was
like being with Capt. Ramius in the movie "Hunt for
Red October" ......."verify our range to target, one ping only". Dan is the
HAL 9000 of radar! The concepts that he teaches are not trivial. These are
concepts and skills that can be applied on every flight and ultimately save your
