Aero-Craft 101: Cold-Weather Flying
Oh, the weather outside is frightful... and if it isn't yet in
your neck of the woods, it soon may be. That's right, winter is
fast approaching. With it comes cooler temperatures, and denser air
to feed our engines. That's a good thing... but snowstorms,
airframe icing, and frost certainly are not.
In today's Aero-Craft feature, Master CFI Tom Turner has some
important tips for cold-weather flying.
This feature is in addition to our daily news briefing --
available in either a quick "Touch And Go" format, or an expanded
Aero-Briefing -- where you'll hear these stories:
Another US-made Light Sport Aircraft has made it first
NASA's new rocket comes up short...
And Cirrus lands a big sale at AOPA Expo.

Our DAILY programs consist of (at least) three separate
- ANN's Daily 'Touch & Go' Aero-Cast: A
quick look at the most recent news of the day... short, succinct
and to the point. The usual 'Touch & Go' takes but a few
minutes and is a summary, only, of the day's events... and it only
takes a few minutes of your time.
- ANN's Daily Briefing Aero-Cast: The Daily ANN
Report (ANNRep for short), is a more comprehensive look at the
day's news. We give you the whole buzz... the news and features
that occupy the forefront of aviation news as well as solid
background on the subjects that aviators and other aviation
professionals need to stay informed on.
- ANN's Daily 'ASR' Feature Aero-Cast: Our daily
'Aero-News Special Report' involves a more in-depth view of a story
or two that dominated (or will be dominating) the day's news. Far
more detailed than any single story in our standard ANN Daily
Reports, this is a solid chance to get a close look at the stories
and topics that matter. ASR features may include exclusive
interviews with Aviation's Newsmakers, ANN's Special Investigative
reports and solid analysis of the stories that will have undeniable
impact on the world of aviation and aerospace.
Check them out, let us know what you think and be sure to keep
those news-tips and program suggestions coming... ANN is ALL about
what YOU want to know about in the world of aviation and
