Pilot's Weather

This book breaks new ground in the presentation of what is and should be presented as a fascinating and vitally important part of a pilot's skill. Gone are the dreary old monotone drawings of isobars and fronts, endless graphs and reams of figures and in bounce full colour photos of what you actually see - clouds and cloudscapes that tell you instantly what's happening to the air around you.

For those who fly aircraft and micros, gliders or kites this book makes the weather make sense.

The content of the book deals comprehensively with all the topics likely to come up in the PPL exams, and more importantly tries, and succeeds, to weld them together into a coherent and useful whole.

Essential book for the training of pilots in meteorological matters. It is a work with an enormously practical approach that simplifies learning.

Given the importance of the subject, author Brian Cosgrove proposes this book as an approximation to the basic knowledge to be acquired by a student pilot or even pilots who are already active. The knowledge acquired with this book is, in the literal words of the author, "solid as a rock" and necessary to face difficult meteorological situations. It is not just a question of being trained as a student and passing tests, but of being trained in an integral way to successfully overcome complicated situations from the meteorological point of view.

"It is better to be on the ground wishing to be in the air than to be in the air wishing to be on the ground" Brian Cosgrove
