Summary159 Pilots need to know how to do a weather briefing before they fly, and there are several other things you are required to do by FAR 91.103. For some flights, you’re not required to get a weather briefing, and we explain why. We’ll show you how to get a weather briefing from a free weather source. If addition to weather, you’re also required to consider fuel, alternatives and known ATC delays.
