Aviation meteorology for Australia
R17 — page content was last changed 19 August 2011
This tutorial is a summarised but reasonably comprehensive examination — directed towards Australian conditions — of the atmospheric structure, the physical laws and the forces which together produce the atmospheric phenomena referred to as weather — a good understanding of which is essential to safe aerial navigation. The tutorial provides much more detail than is necessary for novice pilots to understand; it is meant for persons who wish to expand their knowledge of meteorology without getting into the mathematics of the science.
2. Effects of altitude
(contained in the Flight Theory Guide modules 2 & 3)
|The first section of the Aviation Meteorology Guide covers atmospheric structure, some of the physical laws and atmospheric moisture|
