Publisher's Summary

The best resource a pilot can have to understand how to fly in all types of weather

How do you improve on the best guide for pilots to learn how to fly in all kinds of weather? The answer is the fifth edition of Weather Flying. Regarded as the bible of weather flying, this aviation classic not only continues to make complex weather concepts understandable for even the least experienced of flyers, but has now been updated to cover new advances in technology. At the same time, this respected text still retains many of its original insights from over four decades of publication, provided by renowned weather flying veteran Robert N. Buck.

In a straightforward style, new author Robert O. Buck (son of the book's original author) delves into how computers, personal electronic devices, electronic flight-instrument systems, and other technologies are changing the way general aviation pilots fly weather. He addresses the philosophy and discipline required to use these systems, what they are really telling us, and their task as supplement to good flying sense. The updated fifth edition also discusses how to handle changes in FSS weather briefing, including a look at new weather information products and airborne datalink weather information as they affect weather flying.

This new edition features:

  • Discussions of weather information - what it is, how to get it, and how to use it
  • Explanations of various weather phenomena and how they affect a flight
  • Updates on the new GPS and smart technology used in weather flying
  • Changes in weather information and briefings
  • Descriptions of improved anti and deicing systems
  • Serious discussion of the pilot-electronics interface

Now more than ever, having the Bucks' Weather Flying at the controls is the next best thing to having the authors with you in the cockpit.

It’s NOT PIT-IT… it’s PEET-OH!

I hate it when audiobook producers can’t even take 5 minutes to find out how certain words are pronounced. Especially when it’s an important word repeated several times throughout the book
and a word that the target audience of the book is going to know you’re saying wrong! “Pitot” was the primary example in the book but there were others. Please take a little more time and due diligence when producing audio content!

No Graphics to accompany the audiobook from the pr

Refernces to graphics must be imagined because there are no illustrations to use to better understand the subjects.

Fantastic read

Some of the content could be a bit refreshed since some of the systems mentioned don't seem to exist anymore but the fundamentals taught here are truly useful and I highly recommend this book for all new pilots.

Great book.

this book should be included in all pilot training. im currently training for my instrument rating and this book gave me a much more in depth understanding of weather than the usual flight training books.

A must for every pilot

I was recommended this book by my private/instrument DPE during my flight training. I picked it up a year later as a CFI/CFII/MEI and wish I would have picked it up sooner. I now gift this book to every student who finishes the program.
