The ASRS Weather Hit Parade
It will come as no surprise to users of the ASRS Data Base Online that many ASRS incident reports contain descriptive references to weather—rain, freezing rain, thunderstorms, frost, snow, ice, hurricanes, tornados, lightning, dust storms, wind, microbursts, and hail—not to mention unlimited ceilings and visibility. But did you realize that hundreds of pop song titles also use weather words to good effect?

Aviation Interest

Remember to Close Your VFR Flight Plan

General aviation flying comes with its delights and its risks. We have the joy of traveling from point A to point B, for business, for pleasure or just for that famous hamburger. Along with the joy comes the risk of an unforeseen event, such as a change in the weather, a mechanical interruption, or an ill passenger. Safe and proficient pilots generally manage these events quite well.
