When it comes to the weather, knowing the meteorological terms is useless - unless you understand the meaning of those concepts when you're aloft. Which is precisely why Lankford has written this no-nonsense guide: to give flyers the basic understanding of how weather affects them in flight, and what to do to handle any situation that is likely to arise. He has written a book that is intended specifically as a practical guide for pilots who need hands-on knowledge, not a mass of detailed theory. In clear, understandable terms, learn how to adjust your flying to meet conditions ... anticipate rough weather ahead ... use sound judgment about when it's safe to fly ... escape or avoid dangerous conditions ... anticipate changes in course and speed due to weather ... take into account the abilities of your airplane ... get out of trouble if you find yourself in it.
