In the fifth edition of “Weather Flying,” often regarded as the bible of weather flying, Robert O. Buck (son of the book’s original author) delves into how “computers, personal electronic devices, electronic flight instrument systems, and other technologies are changing the way general aviation pilots fly weather.”
Buck maintains an easy-to-read style that makes complex weather concepts easy to understand.
New to this edition are: Discussions of weather information; explanations of various weather phenomena; updates on GPS and smart technology; changes in weather information and briefings; improvements in anti- and deicing systems; and the all important pilot-electronics interface.
For any pilot who learned to fly more than 10 years ago, getting up to speed on the new ways of learning how to get weather information — and what to do with it — is key to safety. Buck’s Weather Flying will help with the journey.
At 416-pages, Weather Flying isn’t light on content or detail. The book, published by McGraw-Hill, is available in hardcover ($19.26) and Kindle Edition ($11.99) from Amazon.
