High Altitude Operations

High Altitude Operations
The High Altitude Operations module is designed for pilots who are transitioning to higher performance aircraft that routinely operate above 18,000 feet and/or those who require the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) high altitude operations training mandated in Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 61.31(g) and recommended in Advisory Circular (AC) 61-107B, Operations of Aircraft at Altitudes Above 25,000 Feet and/or Mach Numbers (MMO) Greater than .75. The module will also serve those seeking refresher training in high altitude operations. After providing a description of the High Altitude Environment, we review the High Altitude aspects of Weather, Flight Planning and Navigation, Physiology, Aircraft Systems, Aerodynamics and Performance, and Emergencies.

 

The module meets the high altitude ground training requirements of FAR 61.31(g) and addresses the high altitude weather ground training requirements of FAR 135.345(a)(3) (Initial) and 135.351(b)(2) (Recurrent) for Part 135 operators. We can include any General Operations Manual (GOM)-based operator-specific high altitude procedures in the customized module. The module meets the FAA High Altitude Operations pilot training recommendations published in AC 61-107B and can be customized to meet any specialty curriculum requirements in your FAA-approved Training Program.
The module meets the high altitude ground training requirements of FAR 61.31(g) and includes the FAA High Altitude Operations pilot training recommendations published in AC 61-107B. The module complies with the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) training requirement for High Altitude Physiology and "additional training that is required to ensure a safe operation" defined in Chapter 8 of IS-BAO.
