Flying the Mountains


Piloting aircraft above mountainous regions demands more than a thirst for adventure. It also requires a keen understanding of the unique challenges involved in mountain flying — for the safety and pleasure of everyone involved. That's why if you're a pilot, a flight instructor, or are learning to fly, Flying the Mountains is the one-stop, practical resource you need to stay safe while soaring at extreme altitudes. Written with insight by a noted high-elevation flight instructor and pilot, Flying the Mountains:

  • Outlines the nature of mountain flying
  • Relays mountain flight accident statistics and causes
  • Details effects of altitude on aircraft and pilots
  • Examines in-flight ailments related to mountain flying
  • Reviews take-off conditions from mountain airports
  • And much, much more!
  • Logically organized by phases of flight — from preflight preparation to landings — Flying the Mountains delivers a potent combination of statistics, techniques, and examples of actions (correct and incorrect) used in actual flight scenarios.

    Great practical information
    by Mark from Central Coast California 

    Review: Being new to the mountains, there was a lot of info in this book that I had not considered, mostly related to engine management and aeronautical considerations, but a LOT of actual incidents described in detail. Definitely worth the money.
