SJVA Aviation Institute – Day 7

Today, students learn about how atmospheric pressure and density altitude have an affect on both aircraft instruments and overall aircraft performance. Student’s calculated the density altitude at Hemet Ryan airport using the formula: pressure altitude + [120 x (OAT – ISA Temp)]. Same as the previous days, students continued to fly our simulators, fly the RC airplane, and build our electric Piper Cub.
