Brief Description:

Flying along, you might think it's a beautiful crisp winter day until suddenly you take a peek at the beautiful scenery below and see frost on your wingtip.  What are you going to do next?  Do you know all the hazards of frost and icing?

San Carlos Flight Center invites Dave Kramer, an experienced instrument rated pilot, and avid weather specialist to talk about how frost and icing can affect an airplane.  With atmospheric moisture, comes the hazards of icing.  Other than a thunderstorm, nothing else is so detrimental to flight.  California, because of it’s warmer winters, is notorious for icing.  How can we predict it and where can we find it?  In this seminar, anyone will be able to gain a better understanding for how frost and ice forms, how to avoid it, and what to do if you get it.

Join Dave as he discusses these important topics from a pilot’s viewpoint.  If you are an aspiring IFR pilot or a seasoned Instrument rated pro, you won’t want to miss this seminar.

He has been flying since 2012, has over 900 hours of which over 300 have been in the IFR system.  He also enjoys flying at night as well as flying in the LA area
