Q and A video streaming session (31 Mar 2020)

Would you like a live-streamed Q and A session?

It can be hard to learn in isolation. We don’t know when the classroom can return, but could help bring the classroom to you.

Would you find its valuable to participate in a live-streamed Q and A session?
You can submit questions prior to the event, as well as submit them during live chat.

Would you sign up for this?
We would love to hear your feedback.

Met - SIGMET, SPECI & AIRMET

I am going through PPL practice exams and notes, but a few meteorological terms keep tripping me up.

As I understand it --

SIGMET - An AIREP detailing that conditions have deteriorated below certain criteria in a specific area (but can be below 20,000ft)
AIRMET - Widespread, Limited below 12,000ft (though I have also read 10,000ft...?); details deteriorating conditions, but less significant
SPECI - Significant Change, issued by MET reporting station

Also, I am not entirely sure on the difference between an AIRMET & AIREP, and SIGMET & SPECI

I will keep re-reading the books, but any useful pointers would be greatly appreciated!
