The helicopters ability to transit through, maneuver, land and take off from hilly or mountainous terrain is one of the most demanding aspects of helicopter operations. Pilots at some stage are likely to experience this challenging environment and require an understanding of the basic principles, threats, errors and the possible undesirable aircraft states, in order to operate safely.

Whilst the terrain can vary in its topography, hazards, elevation and prevalent weather, the same basic techniques should be utilized. Flying in hilly or mountainous terrain is particularly demanding.

The basic principles of planning and preparation still apply. However operating in hilly and mountainous terrain requires extra planning considerations regarding meteorology, aircraft, ATC, exercises and duties.

You can train the special flying techniques used in mountainous terrain to ensure safe flight perfectly in our simulators.
