Organized by phases of flight - preflight preparation, takeoff, climb, departure, enroute terrain encounters (downdrafts, weather, icing, etc.) navigation, engine management, descent, arrival, and landings, the author combines statistics, techniques, and examples of actions (right and wrong) that real pilots have taken in actual flight scenarios.Following are the key features: outlines the nature of flight in the mountains; mountain flight accident statistics and causes; and, cites training that offsets mountain flying mistakes. Altitude impact is big factor in mountain flight. This book details effects on aircraft and on pilots. Hypothermia, dehydration, fatigue related to mountain flying are examined. Cold weather operations and precautions are outlined. It also features 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 are described.
