Included in the CFI Program

Part I - Introduction to High Altitude Flying
: With the majority of flight time occurring above 5000ft density altitude (DA), students learn how to determine DA and how high-DA's will affect helicopter performance. Various flight characteristics and weight-and-balance considerations are studied. Training includes extensive practice of run-on landings, auto-rotations, low rotor RPM, and max performance takeoffs.

Part II - The Mountain Environment
: Students learn about how mountain terrain affects environmental conditions.  Students are trained in the reconnaissance techniques, as well as, procedures for performing pinnacle and confined area operations at high altitude.
