Criteria for Aviation Weather Hazard (Avoid vs. Go through?)



  • I have heard that a pilot may have to re-route his/her trajectories if weather hazards (e.g. icing, convective, volcanic ash, and turbulent) are showing up to the original planned trajectory. In the meantime, I have also heard that the pilot may not avoid the weather hazards but go though them because he/she is able to do it. I am wondering what is the criteria for him/her to make the decision? For example, what makes him/her to go through or to avoid the weather hazard? I am guessing that the pilot has to avoid severe convective; however, it's fine to go through them if visibility is guaranteed?

    This is not really the place to get an answer like that but the correct (and compliant) answer will reside within the “Aeronautical Information Publication”, or “AIP” document for your respective country (sometimes it's called an Airman's Information Manual, or 'AIM') which can usually be found at the website of your national civil air services agency, i.e. the agency in your country you would lodge a flight plan with.

    For instance in Australia’s case this would be the answer:

    And with respect to pilot observational requirements and equipment it says this:

    The reference to "Gen 3.3 Section 2.13" given above just states this:
