High alitutude

Postby drburka on Fri Aug 30, 2013 12:13 am

Just a quick question. I fly a Cirrus SR-22. For longer flights when the winds cooperate I often fly upwards of 15000. I have oxygen on board for me and my two legged passengers.

Any suggestions about flying at higher altitude with four legged passengers on board? I'm guessing the answer is probably it's better not to do it. Having said that I'm wondering if there is a flight level where I need to start to worry. Is 12,000 OK, 10,000? 5000?

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Generally I try to remember that pups ears are much more sensitive than mine, and I try to stay 6000 and below for that reason.

Also I add remarks to flight plan requesting slow climbs/descents and try to keep it around 300fpm so the furry passengers are comfortable.
