Pilots do detailed planning for cross country trips and it is great when everything goes as planned. In some cases, despite great planning, other factors foil the plan. How do pilots cope with conditions that toss a wrench into well intentioned plans? What would you do if you had to extend your trip due to WX or mechanical issues?

SCFC invites Sebastian Schewers, private pilot, to share how despite great planning he was confronted with weather conditions that prevented a return flight. He will discuss how his contingency planning had to be called into play when he got stranded due to weather at Shelter Cove. Learn how he used the weather forecast to determine his best window for departure.

If you have worried about how to handle unexpected conditions on a long cross country trip, tune in to see how one pilot handled the unexpected and how some of the steps in his preplanning made the outcome successful.


Sebastian Schweers is a Private Pilot both in the US and in Switzerland. Recently he transitioned his foreign certificate to be used for flying in the United States. With a wealth of flying experience both internationally, and now in America, he is excited to share his recent trip to Shelter Cove where he faced challenges due to unexpected weather.
