I have heard many stories from too many pilots about being very close to the deck essentially scud-running to stay VFR while on a ferry flight. I've also read many accident reports of pilots crashing while doing the same! I myself had a run in with IIMC scud-running on a ferry flight! That's why I started this thread (the ferry flight I almost got myself killed on was found in this sub-forum).
So again, if you are not considering one of these ferry flight offers, or are a pilot who flies in the same area all the time in an IFR ship, or while wearing NVGs and thus are best buddies with IIMC, don't be offended by what I write here. Its not directed at you!
To all you time builders out there considering one of these ferry flight offers; don't slow down, don't go lower, and don't be afraid to just tell that guy next to you (who's R44 this most likely is) lets wait for the weather to get better!
Here is a better than PISS OFF reply.
Read and understand the USHST Safety Bulletin.
Know how to use En route Decision Points (EDPs).
Apply industry Best Practices.
How to Avoid IIMC
Get a good forecast for departure, enroute, and arrival.
Avoid flight in Marginal VFR (MVFR).
Check weather ahead of you enroute,
use ATC & Flight Watch.
