It may be the dog days of summer right now, but it's never too early to start thinking about how to plan flights in the upcoming winter months!
Torrance-based CFI Rhon Williams will show how flight plnanning for a long cross-country flight during winter weather requires multiple weather planning tools to make good decisions before and during the flight. With many winter storms and likely icing, timing is critical.
This presentation will describe the weather forecast tools used for an actual flight during challenging real winter conditions. It includes views of various forecast tools, how they are used, their strengths and their limitations. Pilots will learn techniques for planning during difficult winter weather, and will learn how aviation weather forecasts are applied in real decision making.
As always, the FAPA Grill Team will have a hot dog or bratwurst dinner available starting at 6PM, prior to the official meeting start at 7PM. Come a little early for a little meal and some camaraderie before we shift our gears to winter weather!
