Cold Weather Flying

Had the pleasure of doing some cold weather flying. The air was clear, making visibility easy. Snow on the ground can cause a different kind of glare. Here’s a look at Lancaster Airport (KLNS).

Picking out the airport from a fair distance is a little more difficult, especially among the ¬†fields. Nonetheless, the flights were great. Here’s another look at Lancaster’s runway.

Airplane performance was absolutely fantastic in the cold air. Plenty of power, fast rate of climb, and an easy, fuel-sipping cruz. Will be up in the air again soon. Can’t wait. Always do your checklist.
