Mountain Flying Seminar


Flight safety in the mountains is not an elusive or difficult concept, but it does require an awareness and understanding of the hazards associated with mountain flight to reduce the risk and bring about an enjoyable experience. These seminars are intended for those who are about to obtain the PFC Mountain Check ride, and for those who have already done the check ride and are interested in improving their skills. Topics covered in the seminar include weather considerations, mountain wave phenomenon, turbulence, ridge crossing, course reversal procedures, canyons, aircraft performance considerations, survival considerations, precautionary landings, and much more.
