Checkride Weather Prep Book

When I first began flight instructing, I realized Weather Charts was an incredibly difficult subject to teach- there is so much to know, so many different charts, and too many books needed to teach it.  So I set out to create what I called at the time, a Weather Binder.  I made a list of all the weather charts required for each checkride from each PTS (Private, Instrument, Commercial, CFI) and set out to create a book that would have all the info I needed to teach each of my students in one book.  It took me months to prepare, but this book made it so much easier and enjoyable to teach weather.

A few years into flight instructing I was given the position of a Stage Check Instructor.  I loved that position, and used this book every time I quizzed students on weather charts and forecasts.  I had many students and instructors ask for a copy of my book, but I was hesitant as I didn't have everything properly cited and it didn't look very professional.

I have made a few changes and updates to my new Checkride Weather Prep book, made it look more professional, and now have it available for each one of you.  Below is a sampling of the book- I always like to look at a few pages before I buy, so I figured you might be the same way.  I have included the first few pages and the section for the Area Forecast.
