Weather Flying is regarded in the industry as the bible of weather flying. Robert Buck, a general aviation and commercial pilot with tens of thousands of hours of flight time, explains weather in a non technical way, giving pilots useful understanding of weather and practical knowledge of how to judge it and fly it. Covers weather flying psychology, en route weather changes, radar and how to use it, taking off in bad weather, and much more. Winner of the Flight Safety Foundations Publication Award; recommended by the FAA.

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 unforeseen 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-hand seat.
