It is written with a minimum of mathematics and a maximum of practical information.
Using the time-tested, proven study/review concept pioneered by Jeppesen, Aviation Weather delivers everything a budding weather expert needs. Plus, this new edition updates much of the previous content and adds new material on recent developments in weather science and technology so your studies are as current as possible.
In this fourth edition of Aviation Weather, the author has added information about new developments in the acquisition of weather data and how pilots can access and apply that data. Examples of available weather products have been updated and the text revised to reflect the shift toward electronic access to weather reports and forecasts. Reader input prompted the addition of many new NTSB reports to illustrate relevant flying hazards. The author added an additional real-world scenario to demonstrate how weather information can be applied during flight planning. He also clarified several explanations of the basic physical concepts that create weather and updated many of the descriptions of atmospheric phenomena.
