Here's your chance to order The Skew-T log (p) and Me: A primer for pilots. This is the most comprehensive book written for general aviation pilots about the Skew-T log (p) diagram. This text is written by aviation weather expert, Dr. Scott Dennstaedt, who is an experienced CFI and former NWS meteorologist and is the founder of the EZWxBrief progressive web app and co-author of Pilot Weather: From Solo to the Airlines. Just released on July 25, 2022, The Skew-T log (p) and Me is nearly 300 pages in length and is filled with over 200 images of diagrams and figures to help you become proficient using this aviation weather power tool.
To a large extent, the study of weather, better known as meteorology, is rooted in a few fundamental properties. It is these properties that are the key to unlocking all that the Skew-T log (p) diagram has to offer. Even though some of the concepts and dialogue presented in this primer are quite challenging even for the most seasoned pilot, they are born out of these fundamental properties of air.
A thermodynamic chart such as the Skew-T log (p) diagram is the best kept secret in aviation. This primer is the most comprehensive resource available for general aviation pilots that who want to leverage its use as supplemental weather guidance for preflight route planning. Specifically, the Skew-T log (p) diagram allows you to “drill down” over a particular location to identify or describe adverse weather better in time and space than any other single chart or diagram. Are you ready to unlock its plentiful secrets?
