One of the world's most respected veterans of the cockpit gives you the
benefit of his decades of experience flying weather--as a world-record holder,
as a commercial pilot with tens of thousands of hours in the air.
Weather Flying is regarded throughout the industry as the bible on the topic
of weather flying: How to judge it before you take off, how to handle it when
you're in the air, and how to decide when it would be saner to take those
suitcases back to the hotel.
Explaining clearly, with a practical eye to putting the information to use in
the air, Buck tells you how to: cope with en route weather changes; fly
turbulence and thunderstorms; get the most from your radar; deal with dangerous
ice. When the most aviation accidents are due to bad or unforseen weather
conditions, what you know can save your life and the lives of your passengers.
