The dates have been set for the mountain flying ground school
(flying days after):



Saturday, April 23, 2005: Greeley - Weld County Airport - GXY,
at the AIMS Community College Aviation Hangar.

Safety Foundation is a non-profit corporation organized and operated
exclusively for the purpose of promoting and furthering education and
public safety in the aviation industry. In Colorado, accident
statistics show that pilots without the skills needed for safe flight
over mountainous terrain often get themselves in situations which are
beyond their capability to handle. The mountain flying course is a
program developed to improve that capability.

THE COURSE: The ground school course was originally developed by the
Colorado Pilots Association in 1986. It is presented in Colorado at
least twice each year and occasionally at out-of-state locations. It
is taught by Colorado pilots who live and fly the mountains in
business and recreational flying. Through the years it has evolved
into one of the premier safety training courses of its kind.

The course takes the student on a simulated flight over several
mountain passes and into a number of high elevation mountain airports.
Instructors take time to discuss factors affecting the safety of
flight at each step on the route and make extensive use of aerial
photography and a technical workbook to illustrate information needed
for a safe flight. The workbook is part of the course materials
provided under the registration fee for the course and you keep it.

GROUND SCHOOL CONTENT: The ground school covers the basics necessary
for safe flight in mountainous areas, including:

* Mountain weather phenomena
* Flight planning for mountain flying
* Density altitude
* High altitude performance
* Off-airport landings
* Mountain winds
* Mountain airport arrivals
* Enroute navigation
* Emergency planning
* Proper leaning procedures
* Mountain airport departures

It also prepares a pilot for the optional mountain cross-country
training flight in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

training flight, though not part of this ground school course, is an
excellent introduction to flying in the high country. The route takes
you over two mountain passes and to several mountain airports (with
paved runways), providing reinforcement of what is taught in the
ground school. The aircraft used (provided by the student) should
have at least 160 hp. The course takes about 3 1/2 to 5 hours to fly,
depending on the aircraft. Completion of both the ground school and
cross-country training flight will fulfill the requirements of the
FAA's "Wings" program. A "Wings" program completion with logbook
entry will be accepted by the FAA in lieu of a Biennial Flight Review.
Individuals wishing to participate in this portion of the program may
choose a qualified mountain flying instructor from the MOUNTAIN FLYING
INSTRUCTOR PILOTS list, or contact the program administrator for
assistance in selecting an available instructor.

ENROLLMENT: Pilots wishing to attend ground school are urged to
pre-register by Thursday of the week before the course, by sending the
registration slip below, and a check to CPA. This ensures a place in
the course, and a copy of the printed materials.
