ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
AVIATION WEATHER Part 2 contains topics of special interest, such as high altitude, Arctic, tropical, and soaring weather. This book helped me get to know how "The Weather Machine" works.

Because I loved it so much, I created an MP3 version in the summer of 2016. The laws of nature have not changed since this book was first published, and time has not diminished this book's fascinating explanations and wealth of knowledge. There is something however, special in this book. Maybe the way it was written?

Aviation Weather was published jointly by the FAA and the National Weather Service. The publication began in 1943 as CAA Bulletin No. 25, "Meteorology for Pilots," which at the time contained weather knowledge considered essential for most pilots. Over time, as aircraft flew farther, faster, and higher and as meteorological knowledge grew, the bulletin became obsolete. It was revised in 1954 as "Pilots' Weather Handbook" and again in 1965 under its present title.

All these former editions suffered from one common problem. They dealt in part with weather services which change continually in keeping with current techniques and service demands. Therefore, each edition became somewhat outdated almost as soon as published; and its obsolescence grew throughout the period it remained in print. To alleviate this problem, the new authors have completely rewritten this edition streamlining it into a clear, concise, and readable book and omitting all reference to specific weather services. Thus, the text will remain valid and adequate for many years.

C. Hugh Snyder, National Weather Service Coordinator and Training Consultant at the FAA Academy, directed the preparation of Aviation Weather. He and his assistant, John W. Zimmerman, Jr., did much of the writing and edited the final manuscripts. Recognition is given to these meteorologists on the National Weather Service Coordinator's staff who helped write the original manuscript, and organize the contents.

Throughout the book, each aspect of weather as it relates to aircraft operation and flight safety are discussed. I sincerely believe you will enjoy listening to this book and at the same time increase your flying safety and economy and, above all, enhance the pleasure and satisfaction of using today's most modern transportation.
