Welcome to the December Issue of The BAC Bulletin & DA News! Aircraft icing is a huge safety issue in the winter months, so in this issue, we review some best practices to help prevent and reduce the risk of aircraft icing.
Some important reminders:
- Our new winter hours are 7:45am – 6:00pm at both the BAC and DA facilities.
