Air Pilot’s Manual Volume 2 – Air Law & Meteorology – 12th revised edition (EASA)
This “Air Pilot’s Manual” series of books was first conceived in the late 1980s and has developed from its original 4 volumes to being comprehensively and universally used. They now hold a pre-eminent position in the aviation training field. The original authors and editors (of whom Trevor Thom might ring a bell) have gradually been replaced by a superb team of highly qualified instructors and examiners and the publishers are keen to ensure that the books are accurate, up-to-date, informative and interesting. The CAA draws heavily on the series for the PPL examinations and they have long formed recommended reading. During these last 25 years, over 100.000 copies have been sold worldwide!
This book is updated every year to take account of changes in the law. It contains a comprehensive explanation of the sources of aviation law and where the UK system fits within the overarching European and World systems of Aviation law. There is a detailed explanation of licensing to include UK and EASA licenses for fixed wing, micro-lights, sail planes, helicopters and balloons.
In the meteorology section, the background to weather and weather forecasting is covered with clear diagrams. The author of this section is a current meteorologist, so all of the latest information and sources of weather forecasting are covered.
A section at the back contains practice questions for the student to test his knowledge and the answers also contain links to the text where necessary.
