**It’s now time for me to jump into the forum ring!
Does anybody have any significant experience flying SR20’s out of hot and high altitude airports? I have been flying my SR20 N229CD out of 5,000 - 7,000ft MSL airports in Arizona, during above standard temperature conditions.
These airports I have frequently operated into/out of in my former plane, a normally aspirated 182P with a greater performance margin during the takeoff roll and initial climb.
I have found performance of the SR20 under similar circumstances to be acceptable but definitely not spectacular!
I have found that some temperature/altitude conditions that are common at these airports (Flagstaff & Sedona) are not even reported on the take off performance table of the POH.
I am especially interested in hearing experiences about hot and high operations in the mountains (i.e. Apsen, Big Bear,…)
(I must say … I have learned a lot from fellow SR20 pilots, the thoughtful and intelligent contributions are nice to see.)
