WIND and WEATHER

with John Mahany 

In this presentation, John will briefly review some of the basics of weather that cause the wind to blow.  He will then discuss the winds that arise in our everyday flying, including how the wind affects our takeoffs and landings (headwinds, crosswinds, tailwinds), as well as in flight. Followed by some of the more serious wind effects for even the heavy aircraft, wind shear and turbulence, which are also caused by winds.
