Gleim Aviation Weather and Weather Services - 7th Edition

Gleim Aviation Weather And Weather Services

Gleim Aviation Weather and Weather Services provides you with a compilation of the FAA's weather publications in one easy-to-understand reference book. This book explains the FAA's Aviation Weather (AC 00-6B) and Aviation Weather Services (AC 00-45H), along with other Advisory Circulars. Much of what airmen understand about the current atmosphere comes from these important data sources.

Gleim Aviation Weather and Weather Services is an exceptional study text to prepare for knowledge tests, practical tests, and real-world flight operations. This book provides comprehensive weather information that all airmen should know. It is intended to be used as a resource for pilot and dispatcher training programs.

As traditional weather services are being phased out by the National Weather Services, they are being replaced by new web-based weather products. This book will help pilots stay up to date on new and evolving weather information and capabilities to help plan a safe and efficient flight.


  • Presented in an intuitive and easy-to-read format for effective knowledge transfer
  • Learn common weather-related terms using the FAA Weather Glossary
  • Includes high-quality color images to better illustrate all concepts
