I was asked this question a few years ago at an interview and never found the answer. Here it goes, What is considered mountainous terrain?
typhoonpilot said:United used to ask the question in relation to Jeppessen charts and when they started to do that brown contouring for mountainous areas. I believe the answer was 4000 feet above field elevation, but I don't have a Jepp legend handy to check.
Draginass said:Don't confuse "mountainous terrain" with designated "Mountainous Area". Mountainous Area is defined and depicted by the map in AIM. AIM has no formal definition of mountainous terrain.
