My student, now tail between his legs, then queried me what he should do if inadvertent clouds appear enroute. Well, this is a tough question and it really depends on each situation and the resources available to you. The first rule of thumb is, if you’re VFR, stay VFR. If you have a GPS, push the nearest button and fly to the nearest airport that you can reach without having to enter the clouds. And stay on the ground until the weather clears up enough that you can get to your destination in VFR conditions.
