9780884871767: Turbulence : A New Perspective for Pilots (reissue ed - JS319006)

Turbulence A New Perspective for Pilots is the most comprehensive and understandable book available on turbulence as it pertains to aviation. It will help you recognize the conditions that cause turbulence so that its effects can be avoided and minimized. It provides answers to questions such as: What is turbulence? What does it look like? How long does it last? What causes it? Where is it found? What are its indicators? What are its typical dimensions and intensities?

From The Back Cover:
The purpose of this book is to give information that helps pilots recognize the conditions favorable for aviation turbulence (bumpiness in flight) so that its effects can be avoided or minimized. The text concentrates on turbulence causes, structures, and effects which are examined with a minimum of mathematics and a maximum of practical information. Conceptual models, visible indicators, rules of thumb, and large scale meteorological patterns are used to characterize the various turbulence types. This book concludes by integrating this information into a flight planning process and then looks into the future of some improvements on the horizon to help detect and forecast turbulence.
