Hot Weather and High Altitude Operation
Flight operations in hot weather and at high altitudes need special consideration as they have a significant influence on your day to day operation. Take-off and landing performance heavily depend on temperature and altitude. Cruise performance at or near the optimum altitude is also influenced by temperature.
The Hot Weather and High Altitude Operation course is to provide an overview on the performance and operational implications of operating in a hot and high environment, i.e. explains in detail the effect of high temperatures on aircraft performance.
