Vomuro AH Apache Operations In Afghanistan We adapted to this environment well, but were fortunate to have a wealth of experienced aviators in our company. We had already conducted numerous missions to include Operation Anaconda. We knew that it would not be xhd before power was a luxury that we would not have. Kandahar is approximately 3, feet mean sea level MSL and can be characterized as high desert. I slowly increased the power until I drooped the rotor and then decreased the collective.

Dazahn A valuable lesson learned from this deployment is that units should focus early on power management issues and train accordingly so that they are prepared when deployed. We knew that it would not be opc before power was a luxury that we would not have. I slowly increased the power until I drooped the rotor and and decreased the collective. Kandahar is approximately 3, feet mean sea level MSL and can be characterized as high desert.

By the end of April, the temperature at Kandahar was nearing degrees Fahrenheit. The racetrack patterns and running fire tactics we utilized were necessary due to insufficient power to hover and to increase our own survivability. Our first mission took us from Kandahar to Bagram Airbase to refuel and then on to the eastern city of Khowst. This cell always contained at least one of the unit instructor pilots.

We quickly learned that power management was a skill necessary to survive our deployment. On a daily basis, we had power available to hover out of ground effect OGE. Within three weeks of our arrival, our missions started taking us to higher and higher altitudes.

While en route to Khowst, we crossed ahd snow-covered mountain at 11, MSL. During our missions in Afghanistan, we had two aviators assigned to our performance-planning cell.

Each mission required performance planning for altitudes, temperatures, and gross weights had were much higher than we normally operate. The terrain is relatively flat with rolling sand dunes 10 miles west and a mountain range approximately 15 miles to the north.

We had already conducted numerous missions to include Operation Ahr. During the winter months at Kandahar, our aircraft performed well. We adapted to this environment well, but were fortunate to have a wealth of experienced aviators in our company. Most Related.
