MOD 4 Aviation Weather Consulting Team Density Altitude Training Project, Part 21.What is a practical definition density altitude - one that would clearly explain theconcept to a general aviation pilot-in-training?Density altitude is the pressure altitude or real flying altitude corrected for temperature. It canalso be explained as the altitude which the aircraft feels that it is flying based on the aircraft’sperformance.2.What are the main factors that affect density altitude, and what changes in each ofthose factors cause the density altitude to increase?The main factors that effect density altitude is elevation, temperature, humidity, and pressure.As the elevation increases the density altitude will also begin to increase due to the airbecoming less dense as real altitude rises. The same reason for humidity affecting altitudedensity in how more water vapor in the air meaning less air molecules leading to less dense air.
