Thank you. That flight was notable in that there was an unusual easterly flow of air that gave me great ground speeds.

Finally had a go at our little mountain “airstrip”. 950’ long at 6200 msl.

While getting in didn’t concern me too much, getting back out certainly had my attention. Ended up using ~600’ at a DA of 8800’, and a better pilot could’ve done better.

Pretty damned amazing machines - certainly more capable than I am. Pretty humbling, in a good way.

My view down the strip as I contemplated what the hell I’d gotten myself into.

I have an STEC 30 with altitude hold. I miss my yaw damp, electric trim and flight director. :rofl:

I’d like an AP/FD, but electric trim and autotrim would make me very, very happy.

Less for ham handed pilots to break with manual flaps and trims.... :lol:

But that is true. Two high failure items are electric trim and electric flaps on any airplane. One necessity on a Skywagon is reel shoulder straps. Otherwise you simply can’t reach trim or flaps.

That’s true. It’s also true that the flap handle gets in the way, especially at 10*. I suppose it’s also part of the mystique: brap, brap, brap, brap. . . flaps. . .brapbrapbrapbrap....
