Thanks for posting Klaus and reminding us. I am so used now to getting weather, auto flight plan filing, aircraft avoidance and everything off my GPS, that I tend to forget things like this. When I start seasonal flying upstate again, that stuff doesn't matter, but down here in the congestion it sure does.

I created an account and started learning the website. There's a lot of information. It will take a while to learn it all.

First place you'll go once the account is created is the "Pilot Dashboard" then in small blue type click "Edit Favorites". Enter the tree airports that you fly to then change the four weather maps.
