Inhaltsangabe: This is a comprehensive authoritative text for all levels of pilots. It presents weather theory, weather hazards, and weather flying skills used by expert aviators. It covers "sight-reading" instruments; low ceilings and visibility, i.e., haze smog, dust, sand, smoke and ash; turbulence; icing and cold weather specialties; thunderstorms; wind shear; and more. Recognition and flying strategies are given for each. It also, comprehensively presents aviation weather services and resources, how to use them, and reporting systems for which pilots are responsible.The easy, immediate look-up organization by weather condition makes "Aviation Weather Handbook" user-friendly. Flying strategies appear with the hazard, as does fundamental theory needed to put it all together. Instrument knowledge which is not required in training or certification for private and recreational flying, but critical to surviving unexpected weather conditions is included. Included is information on where to get accurate, up-to-the-minute weather data and what, how, and where to file weather reports as a pilot.
