Books on aviation weather abound: Its the one thing all pilots have in common. You can learn about air mass theory, Coriolis force, and how thunderstorms are created and then dissipate in any number of different books. But how do you learn about regional weather, in the places youll be flying, before you get there? How do you understand the larger forces that affect your flight, as you make your way from Amarillo to Texarkana? Flying Americas Weather offers just this kind of information.
In this fascinating and unique text, the author, an AOPA Pilot contributing editor and weather writer for several years, shows how global forces create understandable and repeating patterns as they act on regional geography. Riding along with the jet stream from west to east, Horne shows us why one side of Hawaii is wet and the other dry, what conditions we can expect in the Northwest for a large part of the year (IFR), and which extremes of temperature and precipitation will define our seasonal flying weather in Minnesota and the Dakotas. Every region of the country is detailed. Using decades of climate research, a new understanding of climate and weather phenomena, his own experience, and case studies of weather-related accidents in each region, Horne shows us what we can expect to face as pilots of light aircraft. Flying Americas Weather is packed with descriptive maps and charts, recent research findings, and is presented in an understandable and accessible way
