Dr. Scott Dennstaedt has always had a love for aviation and weather. He graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Atmospheric Science from University of Maryland at College Park. Out of college 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 senior fellow engineer to earn his commercial pilot certificate and become a full-time flight instructor where he was able to marry up his meteorology background with his new love for aviation. In 2008, he founded AvWxWorkshops Inc. to teach general aviation pilots at all experience levels how to minimize their exposure to adverse weather.
