    Default Density altitude

    I learned to fly in 150's, 152's, Tomahawks and Grumman's. The POH's all have detailed info regarding density altitude and takeoff distance. My Tri-pacer 22/150 POH doesn't really tell me what I want to know. Does someone have a simple graph, etc. that would help me at high elevation airports on a hot day? Thank you,
    Darrell

    Hmmm... KBYG, elev 4995, temp of +20C doesn't seem to be on there... No wonder it took forever to get off with a PA22-135.

    hey Joe, happy birthday!
    Looking at density altitudes over here, working in Turkey this summer, 4500ft, 35C equals about 7800ft. CL215 single engine climb rate? negative a bunch! i miss the flat land.

    Nah, enjoy some scenery while you can. Be careful over there, keep the greasy side down and both fans turnin.
