This official handbook provides an authoritative weather tool for pilots, flight instructors, and those studying for pilot certification. From the Federal Aviation Administration with contributions from the National Weather Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this edition offers up-to-date information on the interpretation and usage of U.S. aviation weather products and services. Revised to take into account the phasing-out of some traditional weather products in favor of newer web-based tools, this newly organized guide can help pilots and operators use every available tool to plan safe and efficient flights. Color photographs, satellite images, diagrams, charts, and other illustrations enhance understanding of weather as it applies to flight and make this book an exhaustive resource no aviator or aeronautical buff should be without.
Chapters included in the Aviation Weather Services Handbook are: Aviation Weather Service Program, Aviation Weather Product Policy, Observations, Analysis, Forecasts, and Aviation Weather Tools. Readers will also find useful appendices with definitions of common terms used in en route forecasts and advisories, a standard conversion chart, density altitude calculation, and a map of weather radar network sites. Educational, comprehensive, and potentially lifesaving, this is an indispensable manual for anyone involved in handling a plane.
