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. You'll also find reference information and maps to help plot radar locations and lists to decode location identifiers. Radar & Satellite Wealther Interpretation for Pilots includes an in-depth review of satellite and weather radar fundamentals as applied to flight, making it 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.
