Best weather flying book

Unread post by Hop Harrigan » Mon Jan 23, 2017 8:31 pm

Hi,
Can anyone recommend the best book(s) on weather flying in SA? I have browsed Robert Buck's 'Weather Flying' and although the reviewers consider it the Bible of weather flying, it seems to concentrate on weather and weather services in the US. I'd really like to get my hands on weather flying info that is relevant to SA.

Hi Fly,
I'm wanting the practical side of handling the (SA) weather. Bought an on-line copy of Robert Buck's 'Weather Flying' and starting to wade through it. Would however prefer something specificallyvSA weather related.
