Has your aircraft been in hibernation all winter? If so, a thorough aircraft preflight is in order, and the AOPA Air Safety Foundation has compiled numerous resources to prepare you for this challenge.
Like all Safety Hot Spots, Spring Preflight focuses on a timely issue within the general aviation community and offers a host of resources, including interactive online courses, pertinent accident reports, and AOPA and AOPA Air Safety Foundation publications.
Also in each free Hot Spot is a special Safety Checkup written by foundation staff pilots, as well as a Sporty's Safety Quiz and links to related Web sites. Previous Safety Hot Spots are available in the archive.
