[26 Feb 2019 2000-2300ET] BVA Challenge: Winter Weather (KSYR)
« on: January 19, 2019, 04:36:15 pm »

BVA's Challenge gives pilots the opportunity to exercise their situational awareness and multi-tasking ability in unfamiliar situations such as unfavorable weather, complex airspaces, and treacherous terrain. Each Challenge involves a specific activity, or series of activities, for pilots to complete. This event is about learning through experience and putting aviation knowledge to practice.

This challenge focuses on dealing with flight in winter weather conditions. Pilots will likely face temperatures below freezing as they fly in and out of Syracuse, and will have to consider factors such as low visibility, snow and ice on airport surfaces, and icing as they climb or descend through the clouds.
