Genre: Science

"Whether the Weather" is not only for air sports enthusiasts such as paragliding, hang-gliding and ultralight pilots; it is also an invaluable meteorological guide for anyone interested in weather conditions. The most important safety element is making correct decisions before take-off, because misjudging the weather situation is a common cause of accidents. The correct decision is even more important than flying skills and requires a fundamental understanding of meteorology. Many pilots recognise this and want to learn more about meteorology, without going to a scientific level. "Whether the Weather" fills this gap from A to Z. On 180 pages with innumerable graphics, it explains with outstanding clarity from the most basic to the most complex processes in aviation meteorology.
