All pilots must learn to deal with weather: to appreciate good weather, to recognize and respect marginal or hazardous weather, and to avoid violent weather. Recognition of this and sound weather decisions are critical to the successful outcome of all flights. This book discusses each aspect of weather as it relates to aircraft operation and flight safety.
The information in Aviation Weather is applicable to students, instructors, and experienced pilots alike. It is a comprehensive resource for what you need to know about weather in order to fly safely in both visual (VMC) and instrument (IMC) meteorological conditions.
Subjects covered include the earth’s atmosphere, temperatures, atmospheric pressure and altimetry, wind, moisture, precipitation, clouds, air masses and fronts, turbulence, icing, thunderstorms, common IFR producers, high altitude weather, arctic and tropical weather, and soaring weather. Illustrations throughout; also includes a glossary and index.
