Miller’s mountain flying clinic was the reason Technical Editor Jill W. Tallman visited him in California a few years ago. The course takes flatlanders and brings them to a real mountain environment under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor. During the long weekend, participants spend their evenings next to campfires discussing mountain flying techniques, survival, and more.

Tallman caught up with Miller after the trip to discuss what it’s like to take a pilot through the course. This conversation is part of the Flight Time series from Hangar Talk, where we revisit some of the most popular interviews for the Flight Training audience.
