Don't Push It - DON'T GO

Visual flight rules pilots pressing on into instrument meteorological conditions without a current instrument rating carries a significant risk of spatial disorientation due to powerful and misleading orientation sensations with reduced visual cues.

»  Disorientation can affect any pilot, no matter what their level of experience.

»  Avoid deteriorating weather by conducting thorough pre-flight planning.

»  Use a ‘personal minimums’ checklist to help control and manage risk.

»  If you become disoriented or lost in marginal weather, seek whatever help is available, including support from air traffic control.
