Was considering a flight into Virginia this afternoon, but the surface winds were gusting above 30 – and were reported at 60-80kts at 6000 feet. Checked the PIREPs on Aviation Digital Data service and saw one that helped convince me to stay home:
Over Richmond VA, an airplane reported “severe” turbulence, 1200 foot uncontrolled drop, airspeed changes of 40kts.
What got my attention was that it was an SR22. Anyone we know?
