Coast Flight Training welcomes our newest Cirrus to the fleet. N788JN is a 2004 Cirrus SR20 that comes with WAAS and Traffic system upgrades. The aircraft was bought in Oregon and will be delivered next week. As you can see on the Multi Function Display a strong cold front was approaching Aurora State Airport when Will took the airplane for the test flight. All he said was "this is not San Diego weather for sure!" Winds were 170@17 gusting 33kts, Moderate Turbulence and rain really starting to come down hard! Besides the nasty weather the plane flew flawless and will be an amazing addition to the Coast Flight Training Fleet!

Weather can be a pilot’s best friend or worst enemy. For the true pilot, there is hardly anything more pleasant than a flight on a beautiful day, but inclement weather can quickly create situations that are both difficult and hazardous. Even worse, bad weather has a tendency to turn up out of nowhere like an unwelcome distant relative during the holidays. Coast Flight Training is committed to preparing its pilots for bad weather so that when the winds howl and the sky darkens, those pilots can bring their aircraft safely and successfully back home.

For most people, checking the weather is a simple matter of sticking a hand out the window. Cold? Wear a scarf. Raining? Get a jacket. But for pilots, the weather report is not so straightforward. Weather conditions, good or bad, have a dramatic impact on how an aircraft needs to be flown, so knowing the weather in intimate detail is an essential part of the pilot’s job; pilots must work with the weather, never against it. Coast Flight Training embraces this paradigm and therefore spares no effort to make sure pilots know how to assess and respond to various types of weather conditions.
