Podcast: Are You Prepared for Winter Ops?

Sept. 28, 2020

Winter weather is just around the corner, and business aircraft operators know firsthand how freezing temperatures, strong winds, snow and ice can wreak havoc with their aircraft and the airports they fly into. To mitigate the impacts of winter weather requires a team effort, notes Dan Ramirez, general manager of the Air Shuttle Group at XOJet Aviation. “Treat your airports as partners; treat your service providers as partners. It’s going to make your whole winter operations easier.”
