Head for the hills safely with mountain flying course

Do you know why it's best to approach mountain ridges at a 45-degree angle? Or why it takes more runway to land at high altitudes? Whether your mountain flying experience is limited or you are an experienced mountain aviator looking for a refresher, take the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's Mountain Flying online course. It's a quick, easy way to brush up on aircraft performance, mountain winds and weather, route planning, and high-altitude physiology. Also, check out AOPA's " A Pilot's Guide to Mountain Flying" before you plan that next excursion to the high country.
