More Capable Aircraft, New Challenges

Lesson 6

Whatever aircraft you move up to will be more capable, which will present you with more options for flight planning, and dealing with weather, whether you are a VFR or an IFR pilot.

This is good. If the avionics is state-of-the-art, like WSI, then you will want to spend time learning to use this. Take it one step at a time though, when dealing with weather, starting with VFR, and gradually work up to hard IFR, if you wish. Retired TWA Captain Robert Buck discusses this in his classic book, “Weather Flying”. If you are not familiar with, or have not read this before, you owe it to yourself to pick it up and read it. Add it to your collection. I have. Regardless of your ratings or experience level, Captain Buck offers sage advice on weather and how to deal with it, for all pilots, having flown through it all, himself. He was an active pilot for over 60 years. He recently passed away.
