FAA Publication Addresses Winter Flying

The current issue of FAA Aviation News concentrates on flying safely through the winter months. It features advice on a range of flying hazards, including avoiding ice and frost accumulation on the ground, in-flight icing, operating from icy and slushy runways - even the increased danger of carbon monoxide poisoning with the resumption of using cockpit heaters. Among the topics of discussion in the magazine are what defines "known icing conditions" and how to avoid them; and strategies for long-term aircraft storage over the winter months.
