Intro Meteorology and Other Books

Asked by: 2325 views , ,
General Aviation, Student Pilot

I'm a new student pilot and I'm interested in doing some reading as I start my flight training. I'm already working on William Kershner's Student Pilot's Flight Manual and FAA publications like the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge. I don't have too much experience with some of the basics like meteorology or physics, so I'd like to learn more about those.

Any recommendations for books about meteorology, physics, or other useful topics that are on an introductory or moderate level?

Thanks in advance!

    Rachel,

    I tried unsuccessfully to post a couple of links to Aviation Weather and Aviation Weather Services. These are two Advisory Circulars published by the FAA. AC 00-6A and AC 00-45G. If you Google these, you can probably locate them.

    For Physics, Chapter 3 of the Aviation Maintenance Technician – General handbook is a good reference and is available free on the FAA website.

    I guess the links made after all. The website kept telling me that zero answers were posted to your question.

    Thanks Kris! I’ve been having some trouble posting too, but I found the three guides you recommended and I’ll be sure to read through them.
