Page 47 - ... greater freedom of action. In terminal areas, the problem is more acute because of traffic density, ATC coordination requirements, complex departure and arrival routes, adjacent airports, etc. As a consequence, controllers are less likely to be able to accommodate all requests for weather detours in a terminal area or be in a position to volunteer such routes to the pilot.

However, for the reasons outlined above, it is emphasized that pilots should not completely rely on air traffic controllers to provide this service at all times, particularly in terminal areas or in holding patterns. Pilots should also recognize that the controller's data is often far from complete due to the design of the radar and its location relative to the weather observed.

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...
