Weather Patterns and Phenomena: A Pilots Guide
In this essential guide, you'll learn how to make informed, intelligent decisions about weather that could save lives. Thomas P. Turner breaks down this subject into four sections: Weather theory - Here, he tells you how to interpret the weather information you get from Flight Service, DUAT, and other approved outlets, and how to compare it with actual in-flight weather conditions. Actual aviation weather hazards - Turner provides in-depth coverage of the four classes of hazards: thunderstorms, turbulence, reduced visibility, and ice. You'll also learn techniques for hazard avoidance and what to do if, in spite of all efforts, you find yourself engulfed in Mother Nature's fury. Regional weather - Turner offers important insights into distinct regional weather patterns throughout the continental U.S. Making the "go/no go" decision - He tells you how to put it all together to make the safest possible choices about routes, altitudes, and whether or not to take off.
