Mountain Flying and Colorado Rockies Planning

San Carlos Airport (SQL)

Join us for a review of the elements of mountain flying, with a planned trip to the Colorado Rockies as a specific example.

We'll look at terrain, mountain weather, mountain airports, airplane performance, survival gear, route planning, logistics, and of course safety.

This seminar is one of two opportunities to obtain pre-trip briefing on the planned Colorado excursion of late June being organized by the Bay Area pilots' Fly Out Group. We will use the routing of that trip to highlight the talk, but this session is open to non-participating pilots who wish to obtain the ground instruction related to a mountain checkout.
