Mountain Flying

Mountain flying is fun and safe too…if good judgement is exercised. Good judgement in this case includes the use of proper technique.

Sky Wings’ operations are ideally located with ample access to the Rocky Mountains for training in mountain flying techniques. The natural beauty of the western Albertan ranges often conceals the dangers that lurk for the unwary pilot. Learn about flying both over the top and through the passes. With flight planning, learn to anticipate weather patterns and how the mountains affect them on both the large and small scale. Learn how to navigate your way around blind corners, over saddlebacks and how to keep yourself out of dead end canyons. Master the high altitude handling characteristics of your airplane.

Sky Wings Aviation has professional instructors who follow designated routes for optimum learning of the techniques for mountain flying.
