Alongside scientific meteorology, which attempts to describe and forecast the weather based on theoretical models, there is an empirical meteorology and a real "weather culture"... The "Visitors to the Sky" manual is primarily designed for pilots taking off on foot or operating in the lower layers (paragliders, hang gliders, rigid gliders, balloons and ULM). This manual is an excellent introduction to the more complex works. It provides essential information on small-scale aerology, turbulence, the French climate, etc.

Visitors to the Sky" is designed as a guide. It contains theoretical explanations largely illustrated with photos and explanatory diagrams. They are often supplemented by practical advice with testimonials and flight stories.
