Whether flying during the winter or the summer months, understanding the factors associated with structural icing is critical especially for pilots flying under instrument flight rules (IFR). Icing is a complex topic and demands a challenging dialog. AvWxWorkshops.com is proud to be teamed with icing expert Ben C. Bernstein of Leading Edge Atmospherics to produce this comprehensive training program on structural icing. Learn all aspects of icing from Ben Bernstein, a nationally-known icing forecaster and Scott Dennstaedt, an FAA-certificated instrument flight instructor and nationally-recognized aviation author. Ben will shed some light on how clouds form and how they can become a serious icing hazard to pilots. "There are so many factors that play a role in what makes or breaks an icing situation," says Ben. He further emphasizes, “I am not totally fond of rules of thumb with respect to icing. There are some that are descent, but there are so many exceptions to every rule of thumb that they can be dangerous.”
This Ice Is NOT Nice Part 1 workshop is designed to promote situational awareness when structural icing is a flight risk. This program provides a protracted discussion on the factors associated with structural icing and presents the latest analysis tools and techniques that can be incorporated by pilots to gain the most utility from their aircraft throughout the year without compromising safety. Ice Is NOT Nice Part 1 contains over two and one-half hours of unprecedented training for general aviation pilots wanting to learn more about how minimize their exposure to structural icing. The CD-ROM contains eight training modules and one preflight planning case analysis using real weather data and guidance captured from the Internet.
