That’s awesome. It’s nice when you are wanted. Been to so many Airports where it’s run like the good ole boys club. They hate anyone not in their club. They also hate gyros.I sure am. Flying every chance I get and working on improving everything.
After the rotor strike and everything that followed this is really a great feeling. Folks at the airport have been super.
Local medevac crew even cheered when I did my first crow hops!
Very nice. It looks like you held it off until very little groundspeed remained. It was clear the nose wheel stayed off the ground until the aircraft had stopped. I can't emphasis enough how important this is. Instructors could use these few seconds of video to show how it should be done.
Thanks Jim, all I can hear is Ben saying "hold it off, hold it off".Very nice. It looks like you held it off until very little groundspeed remained. It was clear the nose wheel stayed off the ground until the aircraft had stopped.
When people watch this clip, I hope they understand that by holding the nose wheel off like this that you make it impossible for the nose to dart off to one side, during the landing, and therefore make it impossible to lose directional control.
I appreciate what you're saying Mike. As an instructional point however, I much prefer the way Bobby has demonstrated this landing.Nice nice. I loved when I got good enough to land hold the nose wheel off and proceed with my next takeoff without touching it.
