Aviation and Meteorology: Weather Fundamentals
By Rob Helfenstein
Edited by Rick Stevens
Understanding weather is critical for every pilot. Aviation and Meteorology: Weather Fundamentals provides pilots with the fundamental meteorology knowledge required for flight. Written by pilots from the pilot’s perspective in an easy-to-read format, the book has hundreds of diagrams illustrating the concepts and information. The book is divided into two sections: Meteorology Theory and Meteorology Practical. The theoretical section discusses in detail the environment that pilots operate in; in other words, the atmosphere. This includes such topics as fog, clouds, precipitation, and thunderstorms. The practical section details how this information is communicated to pilots through such tools as Aviation Routine Weather Reports (METAR) and Graphical Area Forecasts (GFAs). Each section is broken into chapters and sub-chapters for clarity, as well as to allow one to easily research a particular subject. We are sure you this will be an invaluable resource. Includes the latest Transport Canada Updates.
The book is 219 pages plus glossary.
