Winter flying

Many pilots stop flying during the winter months, but cold, clear days offer increased aircraft performance and excellent visibility that are perfect for those $100 hamburger hops. To help keep you flying all year round and to protect and winterize your aircraft, the specialists in AOPA's Pilot Information Center provide a winter flying subject report that includes tips on cold weather operations, aircraft icing, caring for your aircraft, and more. And to help keep you safe, the AOPA Air Safety Foundation provides insight into aircraft icing and changing weather.
