Product Summary

Richard Collinss new edition of his book, Thunderstorms and Airplanes, provides in-depth understanding of why, when, and where the most lethal of weather hazards are likely to develop and gives practical advice on flying well clear of them

Much research is done on the subject of thunderstorms, usually resulting in an admonition to stay out of storms. But staying out of trouble takes more than a resolve it takes savvy. Richard Collinss new edition of his book, Thunderstorms and Airplanes, provides in-depth understanding of why, when, and where the most lethal of weather hazards are likely to develop and gives practical advice on flying well clear of them. Chapters are dedicated to weather basics, thunderstorm research, storm forecasting, accidents related to thunderstorms, and more.

Flying defensively in thunderstorm country.

Staying out of trouble takes more than a resolve it takes savvy. Richard Collins provides an in-depth understanding of why, when, and where the most lethal of weather hazards are likely to develop and gives practical advice on flying well clear of them.

Only the view and feel from the left front seat, and the knowledge of what creates thunderstorms can equip the pilot to make good decisions that lead to a safe flight. Legislators want to regulate and require complete abstinence from areas that are candidates for storms, but storms defy precise definition. It's nearly impossible to pinpoint in advance the exact time and place they will occur.

What really happens when machine meets storm is explained here, with sound advice on how to manoeuvre your way out. Collins brings you to the scene of aircraft that danced one-on-one with the ultimate weather phenomena; detailed analyses that help you improve your own weather-related decision-making. In this way he sheds light on how the airlines reduce their exposure to storms, with intriguing, possibly life-saving reading for all pilots who must safely share the skies with thunderstorms.

The pilot had extended the landing gear of the airplane, which is a good thing to do when turbulence becomes severe and control doubtful. If control of the airplane is lost with the gear down, the speed will build more slowly, allowing more time for recognition and correction of the situation

Weather forecasters often include the chance of thunderstorms to cover every eventuality not probability which leaves pilots virtually on their own to decide whether or not thunderstorms will be a consideration along the flight path.
