ABSWeb #3: Cold Weather Operations in Beech Airplanes

LIVE webinar Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at 1900 Central Daylight Time (0100Z December 6th).

PRESENTER: ABS Air Safety Foundation Executive Director Thomas P. Turner

Our Beech airplanes provide utility year-'round, but when the weather is cold there are operating considerations that impact our operations. Learn more about cold weather operations in your Bonanza, Baron, Debonair or Travel Air. Topics we’ll cover include:

  • Why preheat is important, when you should preheat and how to do so effectively
  • Why it's important to heat the panel if possible prior to cold-weather flight
  • Whether engine "winter baffles" are a good idea, and why
  • What to look for during your cold-weather preflight inspection 
  • Tips for avoiding inflight icing encounters
  • What to do if your airframe accumulates ice in flight, both in non-ice and "known ice" airplanes

Viewers will be able to type in their questions to be answered during the event. We’ll explain how to do so at the beginning of the webinar. 

We'll update the following once we have log-in information from the FAA:
