    Review: Taught me all the things that I needed to know before attempting to fly in mountainous areas. The appendix contains aeronautical information, formulas and a lesson plan for mountain flying lessons. Each section contains icons that serve as flags to draw your attention to meaningful, nice-to-know, need-to-know, advisory, precautionary and warning information. I have two; one in my RV-6 and another in an ultralight.

    How and when to approach ridges, and canyons. You get a lot of turbulence on the backside of that mountain. I will be in California, or actually later this week so we can have some video podcasts coming to you direct from California, the west end of our flying across America journey. They can, and often do, demark areas of dangerous turbulence. Its nothing short of awesome. Airplane Performance — Learn to anticipate how your airplane will perform in the mountains.

    This is not to say that this book has value only to mountain pilots, for that is not the case. The Course Flight Each student will then fly two separate routes, one route on each day. Review of the Mountain Flying Bible — This book is one of those that all pilots can learn from just as it deepened my understanding in many areasand should be part of every serious pilot's reference library. One of the joys of flying in Colorado is the opportunity to fly into some of the most majestic mountain areas. Potts Over the many years I have been flying in Alaska the unforgiving nature of the weather and terrain has impressed on me one very important lesson: that flying is a thinking man's or woman's game. This is what actually happened to us today.

ASF: Mountain Flying

Whereas if you approach it head on, you would have to make a degree turn. Also, check out the weather in the pass. Jason Schappert of MzeroA. Today was all about finding the right pass and the right route to go through. Imeson get to be right next to Kershner on the book shelf.

Another lesson provided by Sparky's approach to flying is found on pagewhere he tells how he built, out of 2x4s, a device which he placed in a stream so he could, by changing its orientation, better learn to understand how terrain modifies wind flow.

As most pilots are aware, this opportunity is not without danger and risk. This allows you to get a better look at the pass and it also leaves you a way out.

The thing you always wanna do, you never wanna approach a pass or a mountain gap like that head. Cons: None Review: Taught me all the things that I needed to know before attempting to fly in mountainous areas. Its nothing short of awesome. Book dimensions: 5.

Mountain Flying Bible

So you can see we can some real exciting experience flying in the mountains. Makes pilots do their homework before their flight into density latitudes. You know we had a ton of updrafts and downdrafts today as you can see in some of these pictures.

After receiving a certificate for landing at the highest airport in the U. The "Advanced" icon has been placed to serve as a warning that the procedure or maneuver should not be attempted by inexperienced pilots without first seeking instruction. So that is all I have for you today. I always thought you should get it once you've successfully taken off.

While it may not have shortened my learning curve all that much for true learning is something that needs seasoning over the years to achieve real depth on the subconscious levelthere certainly would have been far fewer of those 'interesting' moments.

For whatever reason on our hypothetical airport, we have to climb out at feet per min. What he came up with is a book so good, so complete and detailed, so useful at all experience levels, that I found myself wishing I had it when I started my bush flying career in Alaska back in the early s.

Certainly the depth of information Sparky provides on the subjects of wind which needs to be thought of as weather, just like something you can see such as fogturbulence, mountain wave, the infinite varieties of ice, high-altitude physiology, and basic flight maneuvers, are unsurpassed by any other book I have ever read.

Learning where dangerous turbulence will occur in the mountains is of fundamental importance, but not entirely intuitive. The Course Lecture Our Mountain Flying Course consists of 2 hours of ground training where you will learn the basics of how to fly in the mountainous terrain.

Because of the size constraints placed on book reviews I only have room to touch on a few of the many subjects found in this marvelous book, so the ones I selected are those that follow my particular interests. If you want to fly in the mountains, the best idea is to get some mountain flight instruction from a qualified flight instruction that specializes in mountain flying.

As for the old timers that say it takes a lifetime to learn how to fly in the mountains, it takes relatively little time for the recreational pilot to learn mountain flying. Instinct and Intuition — A Recipe for Disaster In the course of going through the most basic pilot training many of us learn that control inputs based on instinct or intuition are often wrong."Mountain, Canyon, and Backcountry Flying is a valuable resource, whether you are just getting started in mountain flying or are a seasoned pilot refreshing your knowledge.

It is a must read for anyone wanting to safely experience the exciting world of mountain and canyon flying and teaches a path that can take you to the next level of flying.
