Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

High Altitude Operation

  • Choose an aircraft wich allows a service ceiling more than 10.000 ft like the PC-6, B200 or AeroStar700
  • Reduce the fuel to a minimum
  • Reduce your load, every 10% under the gross weight increase the performance about 20%
  • Choose flaps for take-off depending on the maximum deflection of the aileron. Not much more.
  • Pre-lean your engine and give a bit of throttle to get the engine started
  • Check your indicated airspeed again and again
