Autumn is the perfect time to fly, for birds and pilots!
The hot weather is finally ending in our desert oasis, ushering in the start of Autumn of our peak flying season. Fall flying is smooth as it is the end of the summer monsoons, but before storms brought about by winter cold fronts begin. As more pilots begin flying regularly, they are joined by their winged brethren. Migration season is kicking off with many birds beginning to flying south for the winter.
This means that pilots should exercise enhanced awareness of more flocks or birds. Checking NOTAMS and being aware of your surrounds will go a long way in protecting you and your feathered friends.
Safe flying from your friends at Sawyer Aviation!
