Page 47 - ATC as soon as possible. • Do not rely completely on air traffic controllers to provide information or to initiate radar vectors to aircraft for avoidance of severe weather particularly when arriving at and departing from terminals or in holding patterns.

The weather and/or the terrain within the control zone and beyond may be totally unsuitable for visual flight. 4. Avoid flight through or near thunderstorms. Recent research has proven beyond any doubt that all thunderstorms are potentially dangerous and should be given a wide berth. 5. Avoid flight thorough areas of known or forecast severe weather...
Page 5 - During twoway radio communications failure, when confronted by a situation not covered in the regulation, pilots are expected to exercise good judgment in whatever action they elect to take.
Page 4 - Holding and descent to the initial altitude for the execution of the instrument approach should be accomplished in a holding pattern on the side of the final approach course on which the procedure turn is prescribed.
