Study Note 7 – The Complete Private Pilot

Here is what I learnt while I studying the book “The Complete Private Pilot”. Most note text are in English, and may not translate to Chinese any more.

It is a great book that everyone who is or want to become a private pilot should read it.

After learning the aviation weather, the next thing is to know how to brief weather before every flight, in another word, that’s mean using aviation weather services that provide by National Weather System.

There are plenty of services provided to airman who brief every flight task. In the book `The Complete Private Pilot`, author take the NOAA/NWS AWS website ( as an example to teach how to use the internet digital tools to make every flight safe in dealing with weather.

From my point, I think the structure in this chapter is a little confusion and ‘messy’, even though some knowledge which not covered, such us how to decode Area Forecast and lack more explanations on preflight weather briefing. I suppose a example would be better, such us flight from one airport to another, and how a pilot should do to preflight weather briefing.

Another thought is, I am disappointing that there is no such online and public accessible aviation weather service in China, it is shamed that I could only gain the airport information from U.S. AWS website! There is, in deed, some aviation weather service only but only for civil airline and not public accessible.
