FA: WEATHER FLYING: A PRACTICAL BOOK ON FLYING
WEATHER FLYING: A PRACTICAL BOOK ON FLYING
Buck, Robert N.: WEATHER FLYING: A PRACTICAL BOOK ON FLYING IN ALL KINDS OF
WEATHER BY A PILOT FOR PILOTS New York: Macmillan, 1978. Revised edition.
From Book News, Inc. Retired TWA Captain Buck credits a meteorologist who
briefed him on what weather to expect on his first transcontinental flight
at age 16 with piquing his interest in weather's challenges for a pilot. He
renders accessible facts and judgments on checking, and flying in, nearly
any weather. Book News, Inc.®, Portland. From the Back Cover ``One of the
most worthwhile pieces of reading matter a pilot could own.''--AOPA Pilot.
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.
