Squawk 7000 – Bonus Episode – Flying in Winter

On December 8th 2021, GASCI held an event on safety – among the topics was flying in Winter – here’s Gerry Humphreys’ presentation that gets us ready for snow and ice. The General Aviation Safety Council of Ireland is a volunteer body composed of representatives from General Aviation in Ireland set up in 2012. They meet regularly, aiming to promote General Aviation Safety in Ireland.  

A large part of the GASCI function is to promote safety awareness among all those involved in the Irish GA community. This goal includes pilots and ground handlers at FBOs, aircraft engineers, Air Traffic Controllers, airfield operators, and government regulators.
