This was the second time that the delegates of IACE visited the Observatory.
The delegates spent an educational and enjoyable afternoon in the Observatory, visiting the Central Forecasting Office, seeing the weather observing equipment and attending talks on aviation meteorology and the Observatory's aviation weather services. The delegates were all aviation enthusiasts and expressed interest in aviation meteorology. Committed to promoting meteorology education, the Observatory is glad to see more and more youngsters are interested in this area.
