Abstract : The major objective of this workshop, has been to provide on an annual basis a collective view of aviation weather from the users, suppliers, regulators, researchers, and educators as to (1) specific recommended actions relative to aviation weather needs and the responsible agencies; (2) current status of operational procedures, design criteria, safety regulations, and training techniques; (3) deficiencies and voids in current systems; (4) on-going research and development and; (5) new and future programs. These objectives satisfy the needs of the sponsors relative to knowledge of the interaction of the atmosphere with aeronautical systems, to better define and implement meteorological services, and the collection and interpretation of data for establishing operational criteria relating to the total meteorological inputs from the atmospheric sciences to the operational and educational needs of the aviation community. A collective view is achieved by assuring that representation on the committees is obtained from a wide range of government and private organizations.
