No Christmas Propstrikes Please

Batteries and starters are challenged in the cold.

Fuel does not vaporise that well in the cold.

Spark plugs ice up.

FBO staff is scarce; so no preheat or battery boost available.

It all ends up with hand propping.

Best to arrange ahead of time for preheat equipment to be available.
