Mountain Training

The Okanagan has weather, water and mountains to offer in the way of flying challenges, and they are challenges that requires a thorough understanding of the environment. Once you have a PPL or CPL, the mountains of B.C. provide some of the most breathtaking scenery to the pilot. However flying in the mountains is an activity that requires respect and understanding to ensure you are safe.

Air-Hart Aviation requires that anyone renting a club landplane aircraft must have completed a mountain flying course before flying into mountainous areas. This course includes briefing on weather, navigation and maneuvering in the mountains as well as specific decision-making challenges that you need to be prepared for.

Ground school covering:

Mountain Meteorology

Aircraft Performance

Navigation and Flight Planning

Emergency Considerations and Survival Equipment

Slow Flight in Multiple Configurations

Unusual Attitude Recovery

Turning Stalls

Crossing Ridges

Dealing with High Density Altitude

Mountain Wave

Updrafts, Downdrafts

Confined Area Takeoffs and Landings

Flight time will include a local flight to experience ridge crossings and apply lessons learned in ground training. You will also be required to do a cross-country flight through passes and canyons.

Prices do not include tax. These are the minimum hours quoted. For those students or renters that have no mountain experience, more hours may be required.
