Density Altitude and Flying

Density altitude is one of those slippery topics that can be difficult to grasp. In this lesson you will easily learn what it is and what it means to pilots. Remember: high density altitude describes low density air. And airplanes perform more poorly in less dense air.

Before you take the quiz, make sure to print out the Density Altitude Chart in the Resources box (below).
