  • Comprehensive guide for pilots and dispatchers on weather-related aspects of aircraft operation and flight safety.
  • Covers tools available for flight planning and in-flight weather decisions, including observations, analyses, and forecasts.
  • Topics include aviation weather service program, weather briefings, weather theory, aviation hazards, meteorology, mountain, tropical, arctic, and space weather, observations, weather charts, advisories, forecasts, online weather resources, and much more.
  • Useful for students, experienced pilots, and flight instructors, as well as for FAA Knowledge Exams and airman certification.
  • Provides critical knowledge for safe flying in both visual and instrument meteorological conditions.
  • Supported with online references for further weather resources, definitions, and related FAA publications.
  • Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs.
  • Emphasizes the importance of recognizing and respecting marginal or hazardous weather and avoiding violent weather.

This important Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Handbook updates and consolidates information previously available in six different Advisory Circulars / books including:

  • AC 00-6, Aviation Weather
  • AC 00-24, Thunderstorms
  • AC 00-30, Clear Air Turbulence Avoidance
  • AC 00-45, Aviation Weather Services
  • AC 00-54, Pilot Windshear Guide
  • AC 00-57, Hazardous Mountain Winds

Pilots and dispatchers must learn to deal with all aspects of weather, including how to appreciate good weather, recognize and respect marginal or hazardous weather, and avoid violent weather. This knowledge and the ability to make sound weather decisions are critical to the successful outcome of all flights. This book discusses each aspect of weather as it relates to aircraft operation and flight safety and provides information on the tools available for flight planning and inflight weather decisions, including observations, analyses, and forecasts.

The information in this handbook applies to students, experienced pilots, and flight instructors alike and is a key reference for meteorology and weather services pertinent to FAA Knowledge Exams and airman certification. It is a comprehensive resource for what you need to know about weather to fly safely in both visual (VMC) and instrument (IMC) meteorological conditions. Subjects covered include the U.S. aviation weather service program; weather briefings; weather theory and aviation hazards; meteorology; mountain, tropical, arctic, and space weather; observations (ASOS, AWOS, METAR, PIREP, radar); weather charts; advisories (including AIRMET, SIGMET, wind shear); forecasts (TAF, FA); online weather resources and flight planning tools; and much more.

The examples and explanations are supported with online references for further weather resources, definitions, and related FAA publications. Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs.

Great Reference Book

  • By A Customer from Chapel Hill NC USA on Tuesday, February 27, 2024
  • Pros:
  • Review: As someone educated during the 1970s, I still find hardcopy easier to read, review and scan quickly for what I'm searching for compared with a computer screen. Of course this is becoming more difficult to find these days. And so many health downsides to sitting at a desk staring at a computer screen for long periods. Happy to see some are still publishing hardcopy!

    One suggestion for improvement/inclusion - I was looking for information on the Ionosphere. Perhaps I missed it but I did not see that in the book. Also, perhaps some discussion about wind speeds/direction at various levels of altitude. It appears surface wind speed may differ from 400 feet AGL, what causes this and so on.
