This book discusses each aspect of weather as it relates to aircraft operation and flight safety. The information inAviation Weather is applicable to students, instructors, and experienced pilots alike. It is a comprehensive resource for what you need to know about weather in order to fly safely in both visual (VMC) and instrument (IMC) meteorological conditions. Subjects covered include the Earth's atmosphere, temperatures, atmospheric pressure and altimetry, weather charts, wind, global circulation and jet streams, moisture, precipitation, clouds, air masses and fronts, stability, turbulence, icing, thunderstorms, common IFR producers, weather radar, high altitude weather, arctic, tropical, and space weather. Aviation Weather is a key reference in the FAA Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and FAA Knowledge Exams. Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs.

Most pilots do not fully understand what is expected of them during the practical test. A pilot not understanding what is expected of them during the practical test for an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate can very easily lead to a failure. Most pilots do not review the ATP Practical Test Standards (PTS) completely prior to their practical test. Would any professional reaching the highest rating in any profession take a major exam without extensively preparing for the exam? By far most would not. Believe it or not this happens often with the ATP pilot certificate. This book will help explain the ATP PTS and allow a pilot to be fully prepared and confident to take the ATP Practical Test. This book is packed full of tips and techniques that will allow a pilot to be very successful on their ATP Practical Test. By the time a pilot qualified to take the practical test for the ATP Certificate, they are expected to know an immense amount of information. The ATP PTS helps organize that information, but just reading the ATP PTS most pilots will miss very important points. This book will help pilots understand the ATP PTS much better. Do risk failing your ATP Practical Test. Using this book in addition to the ATP PTS will greatly increase your chance of success.

The FAA'S concise Study aids for passing the checkride. The Practical Test Standards (PTS) series guides student pilots, flight instructors, and FAA-designated examiners through checkrides, the final test in acquiring a pilot license. Each PTS guide details the skill and knowledge that must be successfully demonstrated before an examiner can issue a certificate or rating. The knowledge requirements detail which subjects will be covered--which weather reports and forecasts candidates will be asked to analyze, which physiological conditions (such as dehydration, spatial disorientation, and hypoxia) candidates will need to discuss, and what kind of flight planning exercises will need to be demonstrated. The skill requirements include what kind of takeoff and landing must be performed, such as crosswind or short-field; how a steep turn should be executed, with specifics that include what bank angle and airspeed to use; and what areas will be tested on a continuous basis, such as the checklist usage, positive exchange of flight controls, and crew resource management. The tolerances are defined so the candidates know what altitude, airspeed, headings, and banks must be maintained to complete each maneuver successfully. Each PTS guide lists the knowledge and experience prerequisites for a particular certificate or rating and provides background information and study and reference materials.
