Yes, but it may depend on where you live. I fly less but still fly every chance I get.

Yep. I've flown in as low as 19F, not as fun, but flying none the less. As long as it's above freezing, I usually ok. Below that, and the hands get pretty cold, before flight is over.Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

We probably get better flying days in the winter months than we do in the summer in UK. This year the summer has been particularly bad with some widespread flooding affecting parts of UK.

Here is Colorado it the winters can be rather mild, with exception of a week or two. The ability to fly is less, but still manageable it isn’t to cold.

I have seen guys shovel off the runway for planes and heli guys a small area for taking off and landing.

You suck Andy!

We up here in the N/E fly year round. I do have to say that we have flown in +4 deg, just for the heck of it. Its definately not as fun, but addictions must be fed!

Well this summer I can count the times I flew on the fingers of one hand. Definetelly the winter is the flying season in Greece. You simply cannot fly with the temperature at 40C (45C last week). I prefer swiming

SPB, i have flown in 40'c plenty of times - you just gotta richen up the motor a hell of a lot!!! Not recommended tho!

Here on the west coast of australia it's the cooler months that are the best. Even tho u may get washed out by the winter rains, the very strong summer winds make flying near impossible without having to fight to get your machine back, not really a lot of fun, like turning the wind up to 30mph on G3.

Last year (my learning year) we had one of the driest winters ever making flying both days every weekend possible. Now i haven't flown for over 2 weeks as it hasn't stopped raining!

DJDAZ I am not talking about my engines mate but about me
Actually my Raptor 50 has a brand new OS Hyper installed (since I fried my old one) two months now and yet I haven't crank this engine as I am waiting weather to cool a little before running in this engine.

However if you can fly with 40C then you are brave. With temps above 35C my reflexes are not that good.

I fly the most during the winter. Its 39C right now and not much fun flying in this type of heat.

Best months are usually Fev-May and September-November

Yes, you will need to richen your engine quite alot. A few weeks ago I was flying in 42C and I had to fly with the main needle around 2 turns open.
