Practical flying tips no matter where you fly

Every pilot needs to learn how to read clouds and fly safely around mountain weather, but most books are bogged down by too much theory and not enough practical experience. Margaret Lamb’s new book is a breath of fresh air: it’s a stick and rudder text, including full color photographs printed to art-quality standards that show you what different weather conditions really look like. She explains airplane crashes in all sorts of downdrafts, from lee-side downdrafts in the mountain wave, to windward side flows across the Continental Divide. Microscale weather is a problem not identified at all in general aviation mountain flying, but this book exposes the hazards. The book also contains chapters on flying turbulence, and risk (with examples from mountaineering, as well as paragraphs from famous pilots). Whether you’re based in the Rockies or just occasionally cross the Appalachians, you’ll learn something from this thoughtful and well-illustrated book. Approximately 175 pages.
