Summary
228 Max talks with Rob Mark about VFR into IMC Accidents and a free online course available from AOPA’s Air Safety Institute. These are the most common weather accidents, and 90% are fatal. They happen to even very high time pilots, and they’re ten times more likely to occur at night. Pilots need a strategy for when this occurs to them, and they need to learn how to estimate flight visibility.
