Well, it works both way. If the air is denser, air plane will experience more drag, or air resistance that is why airplane cuises at high altitude. If consider taking off and landing, hot air is said more dangerous. I was told that PHX were subject to shut down if the day temprature is too high. I don;t know the details, but thought the hot air
is not warmed up evenly, it creates tubulance.
