Understanding the Sky will help you unlock the potential of every flying day.

  • Explains complex meteorology in plain English, with the aim of helping you fly further

As cross country pilots, observation and analysis of the ever-changing conditions is crucial if we are to stay in the air and maximise our distances.

Dennis Pagen's Understanding the Sky covers the macro-scale meteorological phenomena, from pressure systems to the Jet Stream, and also focuses in on the micro-met of everything from thermal formation to wave lift.

Read this and you will not only be well on your way to becoming a weather guru, the knowledge inside will help you fly further too.
