Understanding weather is critical for every pilot. Aviation & Meteorology: Weather Fundamentals provides pilots with the fundamental meteorology knowledge required for flight. Written 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-sections for clarity, as well as to allow one to easily research a particular subject. We are sure you this will be an invaluable resource. Second edition includes the Transport Canada updates as at 05/2020.
