Mountain Flying

The Mountain Flying module is designed to support the safe operations of pilots flying high performance jet and turboprop aircraft into and out of high altitude airports located in the mountains. This module is especially recommended for pilots who have limited experience in mountain airport flying. Using airports such as Aspen, Eagle, and Telluride as examples, the module includes a review of best practices and considerations for flight planning, mountain weather, the terrain and its consequences for flight operations, density altitude and aircraft performance, approaches and departures, and emergencies during mountainous airport operations.
