Summer is here and all of us are itching to get back into flying.  However, with the hot summer heat comes Thermal Turbulence.  Want to know how it will affect your next flight?

San Carlos Flight Center invites commercial pilot and weather enthusiast Dave Kramer to discuss Thermal Turbulence.  In this seminar, Dave will cover what to expect from Thermal Turbulence, where to fly to get a good ride, and how to identify it before you get hit.  Many pilots don’t know how to anticipate where and how Thermal Turbulence may impact your flight.  In some cases, that may be ok, but in other cases it is crucial to recognize the dangers that come with this Thermal Turbulence before you take your next summer flight.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn about Thermal Turbulence to better prepare you and your passengers for your next flight this summer..
