With sweltering heat and humidity plaguing much of the United States, pilots should be aware of the effects of high density altitude. It is critical to work through the performance charts for your aircraft before you take off-on a hot day, you might not have enough runway.
"These are performance issues pilots have been taught from the beginning, but it is something we all need to be reminded of," said Woody Cahall, AOPA vice president of aviation services. "Do the math on these hot days. It's better to be safe than sorry." And remember, your aircraft might not perform as well as it did the day it left the factory.
