Winter Flying - Frost

Mere frost on wings and flying surfaces are insidious. Iced wings are obvious. But when the wing is contaminated the critical angle of attack for stall is much lower. Airplanes big and small have stall warning systems that are designed for warning at a fixed angle of attack. When frosted or iced, wing stall is reached at a much lower value. The stall warning system is worthless under these circumstances. Deicing fluid on wings can also affect the critical angle of attack, but that is another story.

Congratulations to Cody Ballee - First Solo on August 20

Way to go Cody!!

Congratulations to Tom Husted who achieved his Instrument Rating on August 19
