  Baby it's Cold Outside


Baby It's Cold Out There


Aircraft are not designed for cold weather. We have found a few great articles on cold weather flying.  One from AOPA - The Weather Never Sleeps, from Skybrary - Cold Weather Operations Checklist for VFR Flights, a few links from Aviation Safety, and from the CAP - a C172 cold weather starting incident. Good recommendations include: check your POH for cold weather procedures, a good preflight, check for fuel contamination, and of course, weather conditions. Be careful out there.
