The most in-depth, up-to-date aviation weather book available. The A to Z of weather for pilots.

Pilot Weather contains 33 chapters on the A to Z of aviation weather, 395 pages in full color, a 550 entry glossary and includes topics on space weather, volcanic ash, airborne weather radar and deicing.

Not only does it dwell on the theory of meteorology, but includes numerous chapters explaining the details of how to critically decipher many important aviation weather reports and forecasts. Pilot Weather caters to all pilots... from your first solo to flying for the airlines. Whether you are looking to have a career in aviation or just to poke holes in the sky as a private pilot, this book will not only help you pass those exams, but, more importantly, teach you how to minimize your exposure to adverse weather. The book is printed in full color and many "tidbits of helpful weather goodies you won't find presented in any other aviation book or flight training programs," the authors promise.

Captain Doug is an airline pilot first and a meteorologist second. Scott is a full-time instrument flight instructor and former NWS research meteorologist. Both Scott and Doug teach weather to pilots, write aviation articles and as a team offer the best combination to learn the topic of aviation weather. They wrote the most in-depth weather book for aviators.
