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.
Oh Yes, Baby It’s Very Cold Outside!
