If you read (parts of) this document more than once, please buy the book. Support Dennis Pagen so he can write more books for us. Books like this are hard to find. I imagine writing them is even harder. So, don’t spoil the fun for the author,  buy the book! I bought the book, read it a lot, and it improved my understanding of weather and of flying.
Happy landings !
