The First Complete Book on Flying in Thunderstorm Country
Staying out of thunderstorms takes resolve and savvy. This book explains why, when, and where these weather hazards are likely to develop and gives practical advice on flying clear of them. Storms defy precise definition, so it is up to individual pilots to use what they know to make good decisions that lead to a safe flight. The dynamics of thunderstorms, wind shear, and other related phenomena are described. There is also a guide for a systematic pre-takeoff weather briefing in which all available weather data are correlated to forecast storm location and severity. By Richard Collins and ASA. 240 pages.
