Weather Flying, Fifth Edition Reviews
Once you learn to fly you have committed - even if you didn't realize it at the time - to learn how weather works and how you can fly it safely.
I fly VFR. This book addresses things I've not known about weather flying, even after taking courses and reading the FAR Handbook on weather. The author ties acquisition of atmospheric information dealing with highs and lows and constructs a weather perspective as flown from the cockpit. Evaluating weather preflight and again while in the cockpit dynamic says much more than just what weather is. His is written from a lifetime of flying every kind of weather.
I've been flying 40+ years from Cessna's & Boeing's to fighter jets. I was fortunate to come across Weather Flying when I started flying and I have remembered the message ever since - always respect weather. The 5th edition is a great review whilst ensuring I get the most out of the new tools available for weather analysis. I hope all aviators gain as much as I have from Weather Flying.
Must have for aviators. Mr. Buck has a practical knowledge on the subject. It is a field book on weather specifically meant for aviators. Iam an Airbus 320 captain and i am a better aviator after Reading it. Its a GO.
What an awesome book! I'm only up to page 97 and this is easily the best and most informative book on deciphering weather I've ever read. It'll DEFINITELY help me better interpret weather maps and conditions before I fly.
Not as good as I thought it would be, if you're looking for a advanced book on ice/deice/fiki/onboard radar/etc Id keep looking, seems like it was written for a basic low hour PPL.
Study weather or die.
got what i wanted fast!
