Winter Weather Wisdom by Wipotnik
January 10 @ 08:00 - 17:00 CST
This safety session will cover a wide range of safety topics tied to winter weather flying, like when your aircraft engine demands pre-heat and how to handle that chore the right way. How to safely remove frost from your airplane before flight. How should a pilot deal with crosswinds on a slick runway? What is a tailplane stall and how to recognize one? Attendees should bring their own questions to this valuable talk.
The event begins at 7 pm local time at the training room of the Chicago Executive Flying School at 1098 south Milwaukee Ave in Wheeling.
Seating is limited so register today.
