Pilot’s ready-to-use, instant weather guide

Fly safely in all weather conditions as you master the flying skills and strategies of expert aviators. Terry Lankford’s Aviation Weather Handbook gives you flying strategies for every imaginable weather condition: low ceilings and visibility due to haze, smog, dust, sand, smoke and ash; turbulence; icing and other cold weather phenomena; thunderstorms; wind shear and more. You learn basic weather theory and how to interpret area, TWEB route, terminal aerodrome, and winds and temperatures aloft forecasts.
