Chapter Summary

While no weather forecast is guaranteed to be 100 percent
accurate, pilots have access to a myriad of weather
information on which to base flight decisions. Weather
products available for preflight planning to en route
information received over the radio or via satellite link
provide the pilot with the most accurate and up-to-date
information available. Each report provides a piece of the
weather puzzle. Pilots must use several reports to get an
overall picture and gain an understanding of the weather that
will affect the safe completion of a flight.
