I had to think a little bit about how to reply to this.

It is very important that you do not panic if you get caught in rain. Reduce your inputs to the minimum required to position yourself for a safe landing.

At the end of the day, all of the manufacturers state that you should not fly in the rain, instructors will tell you not to fly in the rain, and make no mistake, flying in the rain is a bad idea.... HOWEVER!!!!

As many of you are aware, it was raining much of the time when we did our lands end to JOG flight. I am not proud to say that we most likely covered about 1/3rd of the journey in the rain. (which translates to about 15 hours of flying in the rain in different conditions.

So back to my first sentence, 'don't panic' it's NOT the end of the world keep the inputs small and land as normal.
