9780071799720: Weather Flying, Fifth Edition

THE BEST RESOURCE A PILOT CAN HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HOW TOFLY IN ALL TYPES OF WEATHER

How do you improve on the best guide for pilots to learn how to fly in all kinds of weather? The answer is the Fifth Edition of Weather Flying. Regarded as the bible of weather flying, this aviation classic not only continues to make complex weather concepts understandable for even the least experienced of flyers, but has now been updated to cover new advances in technology. At the same time, this respected text still retains many of its original insights from over four decades of publication, provided by renowned weather flying veteran Robert N. Buck.

In a straightforward style, new author Robert O. Buck (son of the book's original author) delves into how computers, personal electronic devices, electronic flightinstrument systems, and other technologies are changing the way general aviation pilots fly weather. He addresses the philosophy and discipline required to use these systems, what they are really telling us, and their task as supplement to good flying sense. The updated Fifth Edition also discusses how to handle changes in FSS weather briefing, including a look at new weather information products and airborne datalink weather information as they affect weather flying.

This new edition features:

  • Discussions of weather information--what it is, how to get it, and how to use it
  • Explanations of various weather phenomena and how they affect a flight
  • Updates on the new GPS and smart technology used in weather flying
  • Changes in weather information and briefi ngs
  • Descriptions of improved anti- and deicing systems
  • Serious discussion of the pilot-electronics interface

Now more than ever, having the Bucks' Weather Flying at the controls is the next best thing to having the authors with you in the cockpit.
