Charleston Safety Seminar: Mountain Flying

February 29, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Flying in mountainous areas is challenging, not only because operational altitudes and winds are higher, but also because weather reporting and off airport landing opportunities are fewer than in other flight environments.  Thus, while there are fewer accidents in mountainous areas than in the flat lands, mountain flying accidents are more likely to result in fatalities.

In this presentation, FAASTeam Representative Scott Newsome will discuss some of the challenges related to mountain flying, ways pilots can seek out mountain flying training, and some of the rapidly changing weather that can be associated with this type of flying.
