About this title


How to obtain, translate, and apply weather satellite and radar images and information to flight planning and operations.

From the Back Cover:


Recent breakthroughs in radar and satellite imaging and communications technology have put a tremendous amount of potentially life-saving weather-related data at a pilot’s disposal. This heavily-illustrated, expertly written resource explains how to obtain, interpret, and effectively apply all this information. Radar & Satellite Weather Interpretation For Pilots thoroughly describes the usefulness – as well as limitations – of radar and satellite imaging in flight planning and operations and offers in-depth coverage of key topics such as:
* Geographical Features
* Weather Features
* Interpretation and Application
* Maps and Codes
* Equipment Reviews
* Lightning Detection Equipment
* Image Illustrations
* Flight Planning Strategies
* Risk Evaluation
* And more

You’ll also find reference information and maps to help plot radar locations and lists to decode location identifiers. Although Radar & Satellite Weather Interpretation for Pilots includes an in-depth review of satellite and weather radar fundamentals as applied to flight, it is far more than a collection of facts – it is a working tool that teaches pilots solid decision-making and risk assessment skills. The author, who is a former FAA Weather Specialist and a consultant for NASA includes valuable case study examples of misinterpretation and prevention techniques as well as actual weather scenarios used to apply flight planning strategies.

If you are looking for clear and up-to-date information on satellite and radar weather interpretations for flight operations, your search ends here.
