Does the cold weather have you stuck in your hangar?

Becoming a Snowbird

Michael Lessard, CFII/MEI

Join this course to learn about the Do’s and Don’ts of flying in the cold winter months. Even if you live in our warmer states, your aircraft and flights may very well be exposed to many of the elements that we will discuss in this class. Learn from lifelong winter flying expert Michael Lessard. Does the thought of snow, ice, freezing precipitation, contaminated slippery runways, obscured airport signage and markings, short days, cold engines and airframes, fewer emergency landing spots, cold weather survival considerations, snow plows on runways, etc., put a knot in your stomach? If so, enroll now and we will help you to be safe! We will discuss the steps that every pilot should take to enjoy flying during the crisp, clear days of winter.
