Practical Risk Management For Weather—For Both The VFR and IFR Pilot—
How to make the right weather decisions quickly and with confidence.

Weather-related accidents cause, by far, the highest level of fatalities in general aviation. That's because weather flying, VFR or IFR, places the greatest demands on a pilot. More than any other risk factor in flight, changing weather frequently requires pilots to alter their plans—and weather especially requires proactive, rather than reactive, risk management.

          Practical Risk Management For Weather

Weather Decisions Aren't Easy

Weather is unforgiving. It can kill you and the people you love. And, the sad ... truly tragic fact is that every weather-related accident could have been avoided ... every single one!

If you're like most pilots, weather decisions are not always easy. Should I go? ... What if the weather changes? ... How will I know if the weather changes? ... What are the risks? ... are common questions that many pilots have difficulty answering.
