I finally got things more or less correct as far as Short Field landings. Yes, it has taken me a long time to get there. Once I did, it was fairly simple…..Airspeed, pitch and power. Yes, I know, we are all taught that. Yes, I know…..and it is just that simple. Getting it to mesh was difficult. And now, all my landings are much better…But my short fields in particular, have suddenly increased in quality.
I was reminded, clear as a bell, of a quote that I had heard from Steve Jobs. It came to me, literally, on the climbout.
