We suggest that it is not as dramatic as the Doctor suggests. Here is a clip We suggest watch it and then read the rest of this blog...
Here is a view from one of our pilot speakers:
'I read this article and although the science bit seems solid, the fact still
remains is that we endeavour to avoid turbulence and that will not change. We do
not flight plan through areas of predicted severe turbulence. The prediction
models will only get better in the future thus enabling to be more accurate in
the prediction of turbulence.'
On our courses, we always remind people that aircraft are not troubled by turbulence. The reason we avoid it is for comfort only. If you are strapped into your seat, no matter how bumpy it gets, no matter how uncomfortable it gets... you are safe.
We know some people love turbulence, they are not bothered by it. In fact,
