Scott's Story...

Out of college Scott Dennstaedt was employed by the NWS as a research meteorologist then received his Master’s degree in Computer Science. He stepped out of the weather business for about 15 years to pursue a career in software engineering. In the late 1990s, Scott left Northrop Grumman as a fellow engineer to earn his commercial pilot certificate and become full-time flight instructor where he was able to marry up his meteorology background with his new love for aviation. In 2003, he founded AvWxWorkshops Inc. (https://avwxworkshops.com) to teach pilots at all experience levels how to minimize their exposure to adverse weather.


Scott has written over 200 magazine articles focused on aviation and weather. He grew up in the Baltimore area and he now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. Scott is working to finish his Ph.D. in Infrastructures and Environmental Systems at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
