Aviation Weather AC 00-6B

WINGsReality EDU has released the 2016 edition of the FAA’s Aviation Weather AC 00-6B as an (eBook PDF).

As Pilot-in-Command of an aircraft, it is essential that your knowledge of meteorology as well as your skills in observing and forecasting weather are maintained at the highest levels. At all levels of aviation training and during all practical exams for airman certificates and ratings, there is a high level of focus on meteorology and weather services. Despite these efforts, accident causal factors often indicate that pilots have continued VFR flight into Instrument Meteorological Conditions. This is due either to a lack of knowledge of meteorology or in part to judgment and decision making skills. This book is the essential text to train pilots on the wide variety of aviation weather topics that are critical to safe flight.

Price: $10.95
