"Pilot-in-Command" Reminder and Fly-out Weather Policy

"Pilot-in-Command" Reminder. Airport conditions vary from airport to airport. Some airports are more challenging and require more experience and skill than others. Pilots should not assume that an airport is "safe" based on its selection as a WNCPA fly-out destination. As "pilot-in-command," you have final authority and responsibility for the operation and safety of each flight. The WNCPA is not responsible for and shall not be held liable for any injury or property damage resulting from participation in a WNCPA fly-out event.

Fly-out Weather Policy. The WNCPA will not make official "go" or "no-go" decisions based on weather for our monthly fly-outs. On days when uncertain or marginal weather is forecast, pilots should make their own individual, "pilot-in-command" decisions as to whether or not a flight can safely be completed. The WNCPA may cancel fly-outs, however, due to logistics (e.g., restaurant or airport closures) or change destinations due to better weather elsewhere. These changes will continue to be announced on the WNCPA website and via the WNCPILOT email group.
