This advisory circular (AC) is issued to alert pilots who are transitioning from aircraft with less performance capability to complex, high-performance aircraft that are capable of operating at high altitudes and high airspeeds, of the need to be knowledgeable about the special physiological and aerodynamic considerations involved in these kinds of operations.

Title 14 CFR part 61 prescribes the knowledge and skill requirements for the various airman certificates and ratings, including category, class, and type ratings authorized to be placed thereon. The civil aircraft fleet consists of numerous aircraft capable of high-altitude flight. Certain knowledge elements pertaining to high-altitude flight are essential for the pilots of these aircraft. Pilots who fly in this realm of flight must receive training in the critical factors relating to safe flight operations at high-altitudes. These critical factors include knowledge of the special physiological and/or aerodynamic considerations which should be given to high-performance aircraft operating in the high-altitude environment. High-altitude flight has different effects on the human body than those experienced in lower altitude flight. The aircraft's aerodynamic characteristics in high-altitude flight may differ significantly from those in lower altitude flight.
