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 pilot/weather researcher for the Air Force, and as a general aviation and 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 sanner 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 most aviation aviation accidents are due to bad or unforseen weather conditions, what you know can save your life and the lives of your passengers. Having Buck's Weather Flying at hand is the next best thing to having him in the right seat.
