Re: ATPL Books: Aviation and Meteorology: Weather Fundamentals

I’ve heard it’s a good book... I myself used the ACWM and found it had all the info needed for the wx theory portion of the Samra. I just wrote the A’s in December.

Re: turbine single otter vs cessna caravan amphibian

If takeoff distance isnt an issue I'd take the Van. Like said, much faster and comfortable. Passengers love it. Biggest peave are the seats, installing/removing them and they take up space. So say if you have to drop off a bunch of freight someplace and pickup 9 passengers on the other end, your gon...
