Aviation Weather Services
An official handbook prepared by a joint effort of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Weather Service (NWS). Thoroughly explaining the many U.S. aviation weather products and services available to pilots, this comprehensive manual details the interpretation and application of advisories, coded weather reports, forecasts, observed and prognostic weather charts, and radar and satellite imagery. Featuring full-color illustrations throughout, and extensive coverage of weather-related tools to assist pilots with flight planning and in-flight decisions, this essential resource offers an unprecedented level of convenience and education for planning flights and researching weather.

This manual comprises absolutely everything weather-service related that a pilot needs to know. It is considered the primary and authoritative resource for pilots, flight instructors, and those studying for pilot certification. Educational, comprehensive, and potentially lifesaving, this is an indispensable manual for anyone involved in handling a plane and should remain a part of every aviator's library.
