How to use a weather radar like a pro

A lot of sim pilots (and real pilots) don't truly understand how a weather radar works and how to use it. We are prone to just assuming that if we see green, yellow, or red on the scope, there's a thunderstorm out there, and we should avoid it. And for a lot of weather radar simulations, that's good...

Hot Start! CL650 NetJets "Day in the Life" Challenge

Since there doesn't seem to be a forum thread for the Hot Start! CL650 NetJets "Day in the Life" Challenge, I thought I'd start one. For those who don't know, here's the itinerary (not sure who the original author is): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ngOgu651_QXAADWh4MJ7HVMFBWKrx_kW/view?...
