This title explains the unique difficulties and dangers of mountain flying in small aircraft and how appropriate and precise training in this specialized category can increase safety, proficiency and success in mountain flying operations. 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. It includes search-and-rescue operations procedures.


Packed with dozens of lifesaving illustrations!


Piloting aircraft above mountainous regions demands more than a thirst for adventure. It also requires a keen understanding of the unique challenges involved in mountain flying — for the safety and pleasure of everyone involved.

That’s why if you’re a pilot, a flight instructor, or are learning to fly, Flying the Mountains is the one-stop, practical resource you need to stay safe while soaring at extreme altitudes. Written with insight by a noted high-elevation flight instructor and pilot, Flying the Mountains:

* Outlines the nature of mountain flying
* Relays mountain flight accident statistics and causes
* Details effects of altitude on aircraft and pilots
* Examines in-flight ailments related to mountain flying
* Reviews take-off conditions from mountain airports
* And much, much more!

Logically organized by phases of flight — from preflight preparation to landings — Flying the Mountains delivers a potent combination of statistics, techniques, and examples of actions (correct and incorrect) used in actual flight scenarios.

I have been flying in the Alps for quite some time and I have always been searching for a good book about mountain flying.

This is easy reading and very informative a the same time.

Very much recommended !

A saddened ending to a wonderful book 2. Februar 2007
Von James M. Diehl - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As reported by the Telluride, Colorado Watch: Fletcher Fairchild Anderson died on Nov. 18, 2005 in an airplane accident in the Snake River Canyon of Wyoming. He was 57. I was so enthused by his humorous, caring, and clear writing style and by the valuable aviation wisdom that he carefully imparted that I sought to reach him by email in November, 2006 and discovered, instead, his obituary. I feel like I have lost a friend even though I never had the opportunity to meet Fletcher. His book will remain a treasured resource to me because of the insight of the central Colorado rockies that it provides. I store is with a copy of the Denver Sectional Aeronautical Chart with the goal of memorizing mountain pass, river and valley, and highway locations. I feel like I know the region after having read this book. I look forward to flying in this beautiful but unforgiving environment, after adequate personal instruction, and will continue to use Fletcher's book as my launch point to learn more and promote safe aviation practices to which he was devoted.

Good Addition to my bookshelf 2. Dezember 2010
Von N. M. Cameron - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is especially about flying Colorado. It covers much more about high altitude work than others. It is very specific. The author appears to me to be an individualist. It is not a book on Alaska flying, but would be a very good addition to Sparky Imeson's wonderful book. Too bad he was killed but he would have been trying right to the last. Flying is about enjoying life, he did.
Excellent and informative 18. September 2014

A really good read - and I am happy to say that since I had just read another AWFUL book on mountain flying that I bought at the same time. This writer really knows his stuff and the discussions are well written with easy to understand explanations, and he uses examples that drive the point home. The chapter on reading mountain weather is really good and it has a lot of diagrams with examples of small scale winds, anomalous reverse-direction winds, venturis, and other kinds of weather only found in the mountains. it's really practical and describes the "how" as well as the "why" for all kinds of operations. This is a must-read for mountain flying

Great Learning Tool, Very Informative 13. Juli 2007
Von Steven H. Ragan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I am new to GA and a flatlander. The book is written specifically for the mountains but a lot of the information dealing with weather is very useful as a learning tool out of the mountains. Too bad the author was killed while flying in a canyon. I researched his death on the NTSB website and sure enough he was killed flying too low in a canyon and struck a wire. Overall a great book packed with great information.
Well written and informative 22. Mai 2013

This is an excellent resource for any pilot wanting to learn more about flying in the mountains. He goes in depth with respect to operating at high density altitudes and flying and operating in mountains, principally the Colorado Rockies. This is one of the easiest to understand and well written books on back country flying. A great addition to your flying library.
