    What effect does high density altitude, as compared to low density altitude, have on propeller efficiency and why?
    Efficiency is reduced because the propeller exerts less force at high density altitudes than at low density altitudes.

    You have planned a cross-country flight on a warm spring morning. Your course includes a mountain pass, which is at 11,500 feet MSL. The service ceiling of your airplane is 14,000 feet MSL. After checking the local weather report, you are able to calculate the density altitude of the mountain pass as 14,800 feet MSL. Which of the following is the correct action to take?
    Re-plan your journey to avoid the mountain pass.
