- Total Flight Time
If you ever met Jim you would understand how he’s cool as a cucumber in the gravest of situations. He would be one I would want with me in an emergency. He taught many people to fly gyros which is virtually trying to keep them from killing you. He and my father did it for over 20 years.Mayfield - add that to your emergency check list. I find just writing a check list for emergencies will help identify what to look for in flight. May not even have to check the list if you took the time to write it and laminate it for when needed. The other area to check for if flying high altitudes is to make sure you readjust the mixture when descending.
Glad you were able to handle it and keep calm enough to make the approach to land safely. I bet you will know instinctively what to do if this happens again now.
