Ice in flight is bad news. It destroys the smooth flow of air, increasing drag while decreasing the ability of the airfoil to create lift. The actual weight of ice on an airplane is insignificant when compared to the airflow disruption it causes. Featured speaker David Parkins (AKA the "ice man") will discuss why flight in those freezing clouds is inadvisable and how to escape if you are caught there by surprise. Much of the discussion will revolve around the audience’s questions. Don't miss this unique opportunity!
