This text provides pilots with the information needed to understand the weather forecast, and to forecast the weather themselves. It satisfies the meteorological requirements necessary to be JAR compliant and discusses the latest data on global warming, especially in relation to the El Nino effect.
This new third edition of 'Meteorology for Pilots' has been modified to satisfy all aspects of the meteorological requirements necessary to be JAR compliant. It also discusses the latest data concerning global warming and its consequences, especially in relation to the El Nino effect. For aviation the study of meteorology provides knowledge and awareness of the atmosphere, which is, after all, the medium within which the pilot works. A proper study of the subject will provide the basis that can enable a pilot to appreciate properly the weather forecast given to him for a flight - and indeed to forecast for himself. Technical aircraft safety is now approaching the highest standards, while safety affected by particular weather conditions remains a large problem. Clearly a proper study of meteorology can only assist the pilot in providing safe passages.
