Event Description
BVA's Challenge gives pilots the opportunity to exercise their situational awareness and multi-tasking ability in unfamiliar situations such as unfavorable weather, complex airspaces, and treacherous terrain. Each Challenge involves a specific activity, or series of activities, for pilots to complete. This event is about learning through experience and putting aviation knowledge to practice. Past Challenge events have included the Washington and New York SFRAs, Class B airspace avoidance, landing competitions, IFR procedures, and Pilot Ratings Program flights.

This event is not about flying missions or winning points. It's about exercising your multi-tasking ability in challenging and unfamiliar situations—something pilots have to do all the time.
Event Briefing

This challenge focuses on dealing with flight in winter weather conditions. Pilots will likely face temperatures below freezing as they fly in and out of Syracuse, and will have to consider factors such as low visibility, snow and ice on airport surfaces, and icing as they climb or descend through the clouds.
