As sport and general aviation pilots are getting back into the air, another feature discusses when not to fly, by examining everyday conditions that will stop us from flying and the importance of instinct and trusting your gut.
Our writers will also discuss hazardous pilot attitudes, helicopter performance in hot weather and using virtual reality for training maintenance engineers.
