For those Pilots who fly in a High Altitude and High-Density environments quickly realize how invaluable this training and experience can be.

Mountainous Terrain piloting skills are in high demand. Often, access to these terrains is very slow from the ground, and in fact may not even be accessible from the ground at all. When accessibility is there, reaching these generally remote terrains are fraught with dangerous and difficult conditions that can put lives at risk.

For these reasons, many industries and government entities are frequently turning to private helicopter services to fulfill transportation, search and rescue, community policing, and surveying in these difficult regions.

Specialized operating environments such as this require special skills! Vertical Limit is proud to offer training in the special techniques and methods for flying in the mountains as part of its commercial training and advanced training for commercial pilots.

However, High Altitude and mountain flying is also a beneficial program for any helicopter pilot since the training helps to development judgment, planning, and decision-making skills.
