One thought on “Don’t Be Dense About Density Altitude

  1. Density altitude is critical whether you are flying a C150 or an intercontinental jet. It is all relative. Every jet airplane I flew had a performance section in the checklist. This is where we got our takeoff speeds for our weight. We also observed how much runway was required for takeoff at a given weight, field elevation, and temperature. Essentially these charts were providing density altitude information.
