197 This is a follow up to #196 on Mountain Flying. Most aircraft need to be leaned prior to takeoff in high density altitude. Turbocharged aircraft and older SR20s don’t need leaning. Max discusses many methods of leaning before takeoff. Always start with your POH to see what method it recommends. If it doesn’t recommend a specific method, then you may want to use one of the methods discussed here.
