One thought on “Your Guide To Staying Alive While Flying Low

  1. I suppose I flying low all the time. KLAR, Laramie Wyoming, is at an elevation of 7284 feet. If I flying at 5000 AGL, that puts my single engine Beech Sport at 12,284 MSL. It doesn’t perform very well at that altitude. Then crossing the Laramie Range to Cheyenne would put my over 13,000 feet. I have trouble breathing at that altitude myself. Here in the Rocky Mountain West we learn to fly “low” or don’t fly at all. Thanks for a great article. It is very true, “If you’re going to fly low,” said my first flight instructor, “you had better know how to do it right.” (Especially out here).
