Hello Fellow Travelers !
Choose the right word from the boxes to fill in the gaps:
Let’s talk about the Forecasters working for the _______(1) community.
Their main goal is to study and _______(2) the many and varied Meteorological _______(3) which, unfortunately, can prove hazardous to aviation.
At the very _________(4), a meteorological _________(5) can cause delays and thus reduce the efficiency of the aviation.
But they also lower the safety of air operations and, at their ______(6); they can cause the loss of equipment,
and more importantly the loss of life.
__________(7) is a major hazard for aviation especially when operating at low levels.
It can be defined as layers or columns of air, flowing with different velocities to adjacent layers or columns.
Some _________(8) are more susceptible to the effects of _________(9) than others.
Light aircraft are prone to be buffeted and are significantly affected even by light turbulence.
Relatively few reports of turbulence are received from fast military ____(10) which are designed to give a high degree of tolerance.
Turbulence will result in “bumpiness” in flight.
Of course, as the intensity of turbulence increases, its effect will increase in accordance with the ICAO categories.
