"Whether the Weather" is not only for air sports enthusiasts such as paragliding, hang-gliding and ultralight pilots; it is also an invaluable meteorological guide for anyone interested in weather conditions.
The most important safety element is making correct decisions before take-off, because misjudging the weather situation is a common cause of accidents. The correct decision is even more important than flying skills and requires a fundamental understanding of meteorology. Many pilots recognise this and want to learn more about meteorology, without going to a scientific level.
"Whether the Weather" fills this gap from A to Z. On 180 pages with innumerable graphics, it explains with outstanding clarity from the most basic to the most complex processes in aviation meteorology.
Roger Peter Frey was born in Berne, Switzerland. Some years ago he made his hobby his profession and obtained his paragliding instructor licences for Switzerland (SHV) and later also for Germany (DHV) and Austria (ÖAeC).
On the Canary island of La Palma, he developed, together with his business partner Spanish paragliding instructor Javier López Redondo, a ``GuideService'' for licenced paragliding pilots in their Paragliding School "Palmaclub", which specializes in further education for pilots.
Roger lives and works on La Palma and in Switzerland.
