Mountain, Canyon, and Backcountry Flying
Newcastle, WA-- Open up a whole new world of recreation with Mountain, Canyon, and Backcountry Flying by Amy L. Hoover and R.K. "Dick" Williams. For more than a century, pilots have been intrigued by the challenges of flight in the highest mountains and the deepest canyons on every continent. With this new book's guidance, readers can discover the allure of flying vacations to the less-accessible and roadless area recreational activities, guest lodges and bush camps.
Recreational pilots to mountain flying instructors will find this book useful, and college and university professors can use the text to supplement their classroom instruction. Fundamental concepts include preparing for and conducting mountain and canyon flights, airport operations, situational awareness, aircraft performance, risk management, analysis of accident scenarios and emergency operations. Includes accounts from the authors’ own experiences, and contributions from seasoned backcountry pilots and instructors who expand on material detailed in the text. Exercise sections in each chapter help readers understand and apply the information to their own flying. Beautiful color illustrations will inspire pilots to seek out these inspiring destinations.
Softcover, 7.25" x 9", 392 pages, color throughout. Foreword by Rod Machado. Available in print and eBook formats, and a money-saving eBundle (softcover + eBook). Look for Mountain, Canyon, and Backcountry Flying at your local pilot shop, favorite online dealer, or at .
