When flying aircraft, take weather forecasts and reports very seriously. Do not “brave” the elements because the result can be fatal. Make sure your pilot has experience and make sur the company you are flying is through in their pre-flight inspections. All-in-all, follow your instincts and do not put yourself in a situation that you feel is dangerous.
