Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Weather Flying is regarded in the industry as the bible of weather flying. Robert Buck, a general aviation and commercial pilot with tens of thousands of hours of flight time, explains weather in a nontechnical way, giving pilots useful understanding of weather and practical knowledge of how to judge it and fly it. Covers weather flying psychology, en route weather changes, radar and how to use it, taking off in bad weather, and much more. Winner of the Flight Safety Foundation's Publication Award; recommended by the FAA.

Book News Annotation:

In this first update of this flying ace's classic in nearly a decade, retired TWA Captain Buck credits a meteorologist who briefed him on what weather to expect on his first transcontinental flight at age 16 with piquing his interest in weather's challenges for a pilot. He renders accessible facts and judgments on checking, and flying in, nearly any weather.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author

Leading aviation author Robert N. Buck (Fayston, Vt.) set a New York to Los Angeles speed record at the age of 16. A retired senior TWA jet captain, Buck has flown the Atlantic more than 2,000 times. As a civilian, he headed a four-year bad-weather research project for the Air Force, which won him an Air Medal. Buck has been a consultant to four FAA administrators and airlines on many aspects of aviation safety, and is the author of The Art of Flying and Flying Know-How, among others. An avid general aviation pilot throughout his life, Buck currently owns a Schleicher ASW-20 high performance sailplane with his son.
