  • Glidergeek added a new comment in STOL Tips: Going around
    Patric thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge. I didn't see any advice on trim settings for a landing approach gone bad. In the almost 500 hours in the C180 with the Pponk engine I've never done a emergency go around. I'm very aware that a full power go around situation is going to produce

  • C170B Pilot sorry I didn't see your post. There is something weird in the Event section where the creator of the event can't see posts if logged in. I keep forgetting to check here while logged out. In answer to your question, no, you don't need to reserve a camping spot. See ya there. :-)

    Under "Negotiating Terrain" could you cover the sources of energy, other than engine thrust, that we might utilize in mountain flying? Gravity thrust of altitude can be a useful backup to engine power if we take off toward lower terrain. Gravity thrust of altitude can also be used to prevent load

  • Looks like good weather coming for Sunday. I am thinking about running over to check out Day Break Sunday morning. I have not been there before, do I need to get prior permission from the owner to land there? Or is he ok with planes just stopping in?

    Anyone want to meet up? Perhaps there is a good breakfast spot near there?

  • Hey guys. Thought I would check the Back county site out. I start on the IV in a few weeks.
    bbs428 I'm just north of Webb City, Mo. Joplin regional airport (KJLN) is 15 min. away. Building in my 35x70 shop. Just have to finish a 67 mustang convertible that's sucking up floor space and sell it.
    The 1994 Speedster was found 20 min. south of me. I pick it up in a few weeks. It's still new and mostly untouched.
    I plan to install a 912is or uls. All depends how much I get out of the mustang and if I can actually write a check for the firewall forward without a melt down...! :)
