This well written book offers a more common sense approach to mountain flying including issues of altitude, mountain winds, and of "reading" the weather. Accidents are discussed as examples of bad decisions describing what happened, why, and how it could have been prevented. In this book, the author's vast personal experiences are emphasized rather than are charts and graphs as in other similar books on this topic.
Many references are made around the mountains, ridges, and passes of south west and central Colorado. However the information is appropriate in any region in which the terrain is high or abrupt enough to influence conditions.

Key Features:

  • Outlines the nature of flight in the mountains
  • Mountain flight accident statistics and causes
  • Cites training that offsets mountain flying mistakes
  • Altitude impact is big factor in mountain flight: details effects on aircraft and on pilots
  • Hypothermia, dehydration, fatigue related to mountain flying examined
  • Cold weather operations and precautions outlined
  • Mountain winds strategies - including reverse-direction anomalous winds
  • Take-off conditions from airport mountains are reviewed
  • Mountain-specific strategies and techniques differing from 'flat-land' flying described
  • Includes search-and-rescue operations procedures.
