This book breaks new ground in the presentation of what is and should be presented as a fascinating and vitally important part of a pilot's skill. Gone are the dreary old monotone drawings of isobars and fronts, endless graphs and reams of figures and in bounce full colour photos of what you actually see - clouds and cloudscapes that tell you instantly what's happening to the air around you. For those who fly aircraft and micros, gliders or kites, this book makes the weather make sense. "The content of the book deals comprehensively with all the topics likely to come up in the PPL exams, and more importantly tries, and succeeds, to weld them together into a coherent and useful whole. Meteorology can be a dry and technical subject but this book does better than most at holding the reader's interest, helped a great deal by the excellent photos. The photos illustrate all types of cloud, frontal weather, and most other meteorological phenomena. This is a welcome change from the usual line drawings which bear little relation to reality found in the majority of aviation weather books. " - MICROLIGHT FLYING "Everything the pilot needs to know about the atmosphere, the weather and meteorology. The colour photographs are superb: these alone make the book worth having on one's shelf." - AOPA LIGHT AVIATION ". . . a few hours regularly spent within the pages of Brian Cosgrove's book would seem to be time well spent." - GUILD NEWS (GAPAN).

This literal survival guide for new pilots identifies "the killing zone," the 40-250 flight hours during which unseasoned aviators are likely to commit lethal mistakes. Presents the statistics of how many pilots will die in the zone within a year; calls attention to the eight top pilot killers (such as "VFR into IFR," "Takeoff and Climb"); and maps strategies for avoiding, diverting, correcting, and managing the dangers. Includes a Pilot Personality Self-Assessment Exercise that identifies pilot "types" and how each type can best react to survive the killing zone.

Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen (* 2. Mai 1892 in Breslau; † 21. April 1918 bei Vaux-sur-Somme, Département Somme) war ein deutscher Jagdflieger im Ersten Weltkrieg. Er erzielte die höchste Zahl von Luftsiegen, die im Ersten Weltkrieg von einem einzelnen Piloten erreicht wurde. Den berühmten Beinamen „Der Rote Baron“ erhielt von Richthofen, der einen Großteil seiner Einsätze in mehr oder weniger rot gestrichenen Flugzeugen flog, erst nach dem Krieg. Er geht vermutlich auf ein englisches Nachkriegsbuch zurück, das seinen Titel „Freiherr“, den es im Englischen nicht gibt, mit „Baron“ übersetzte. Im Ersten Weltkrieg wurde Richthofen auf französischer Seite « le petit rouge » (deutsch: „Der kleine Rote“) oder auch « Rouge diable » (deutsch: „Roter Teufel“) genannt. Seine gesammelten Tagebücher tragen den Titel „Der rote Kampfflieger“.
