Happy new year and happy new Flaps!

We’ve been a bit delayed by the festive period and some of the worst weather on record, so it seems appropriate that in this edition of Flaps we talk about winter weather flying with Flyer Magazine’s Simon Keeling. You’ll hear Simon talk about his free weekly aviation mailout.
