I think I’m getting there…..

So my IP pulls the throttle about midfield on the downwind. Says:

“Engine failure, hit the 1000 foot marker don’t land short, don’t land long”.

I make the trim, do the turn, line up final, trim, add flaps as I cross over the fence, and hit the marker in the first 20 feet ON Centerline…. greased it too. 

“Didn’t hit the center of the marker”.

“you didn’t say the center of the marker, dude…., you said “The marker”. I Hit The Marker”

2 weeks ago I’d have been lucky to hit the marker, and likely woulda been off center.

Aim small, miss small.

Not there yet, but improving.

  1. Ah, having fun with power-off 180s. Good to hear you're coming along, keep at it.

  2. Been there, done that.
    Have you pushed the toe brakes to slow down on short final when you're a little hot?

  3. No, I can say I haven't done that. Likely every other foolish maneuver, but not that one.
