The FAA’s Aviation Weather Services Advisory Circular (AC) has been updated with the latest NWS procedural changes and now includes Change 2, effective March 2009.
The Aviation Weather Services AC features full-color illustrations throughout, and full coverage of weather-related tools to assist pilots with flight planning and in-flight decisions. The text explains the many U.S. aviation weather products and services available to pilots. It details the interpretation and application of advisories, coded weather reports, forecasts, observed and prognostic weather charts, and radar and satellite imagery. Weather product examples and explanations are taken primarily from the Aviation Weather Center’s Aviation Digital Data Service website Adds.AviationWeather.NOAA.gov. Hundreds of weather website addresses are provided for weather resources, definitions, and additional information available in other FAA publications.
An electronic copy of this printed book is available on the ASA website for pilots to access these clickable links – an unprecedented level of convenience and education for pilots planning their flights and researching weather.
Includes weather station location tables, lists of contractions and acronyms, weather symbols, conversion charts, internet links, and more.
The AC is also available as part of the Aviation Weather Combo, which includes Aviation Weather (AC00-6A) and newly-updated kneeboard-sized laminated weather code cards with TAF/METAR and ASOS/AWOS abbreviations and decoding tips.
Price: $24.95; Aviation Weather Combo, $34.95
