Mountain Flying

Many piloting jobs involve operating in mountainous terrain or high altitude conditions. Advanced skills are needed to fly efficiently and safely in these environments. This course is very important for pilots planning to work flying helicopters in high density altitude conditions. However, this is also a very beneficial program for any helicopter pilot since it helps to development judgment, planning, and decision making skills. Furthermore, the subtle flying skills needed to operate close to the limits of the aircraft's performance can be just as useful when flying at lower altitudes with high weight on a hot day.
