    Number 3 is usually associated with warm to very warm OAT (Hight DA = Lower air density),


    you depart from a High elevated airport like Denver-Colorado, where due to the high elevation, the DA is always high, and so your aircraft’s engine performance (power a/v) will be worse due to lower air density.
