Chicagoland winters can bring blizzards which can last for days on end but in-between the storms, believe it or not, the flying is near perfect! Flying is the best way to rise above the snow and slush to escape the winter blues. Here are a few of the advantages:
- More Power - Your engine will develop more horsepower than during the summer which means the plane will give you more power on take-offs.
- Better Performance - Cooler temperatures mean a cooler engine which allows for better performance. The air is much denser than summer winds so your wing will develop more lift, allow you to climb steeper and cruise faster.
- Smoother Flight - Cold winter air is typically more stable than hot, summer air, so you will have a smoother flight.
YES! Winter truly is the best time to fly!!!
