Welcome to the first edition of Pilot Weather: From Solo to the Airlines. It includes 394 pages, over 400 diagrams and pictures, plus a 550-entry glossary. This book consists of 33 chapters on the A to Z of aviation weather. Not only does it dwell on the theory of meteorology, but includes numerous chapters explaining the details of how to critically decipher many important aviation weather reports and forecasts. Pilot Weather caters to all pilots... from your first solo to flying for the airlines. Whether you are looking to have a career in aviation or just to poke holes in the sky as a private pilot, this book will not only help you pass those exams, but, more importantly, teach you how to minimize your exposure to adverse weather.
This book, billed as the “most comprehensive and up-to-date book on aviation weather available today,” provides a blend of knowledge from two experienced pilots with quite different backgrounds.
Captain Doug has amassed nearly 24,000 hours. He is presently flying the B787 Dreamliner that has a maple leaf emblazoned on it. Doug is a certified meteorologist and “Pilot Weather: From solo to the airlines” is his third book. He has been teaching weather to aspiring pilots for nearly 30 years. Out of college Dr. Scott Dennstaedt was employed by the NWS as a research meteorologist then received his Master’s degree in Computer Science. He stepped out of the weather business for about 15 years to pursue a career in software engineering. In the late 1990s, Scott left Northrop Grumman as a fellow engineer to earn his commercial pilot certificate and become a full-time flight instructor where he was able to marry up his meteorology background with his new love for aviation. In 2008, he founded AvWxWorkshops Inc. to teach pilots at all experience levels how to minimize their exposure to adverse weather. In early 2021 Scott launched his companion application , EZWxBrief. The book is printed in full color and many “tidbits of helpful weather goodies you won’t find presented in any other aviation book or flight training programs,” the authors promise.
