Are you cheating when you add ‘That Little Burst of Power’ ?

You see, every landing can and should be a practice for that day when the engine will fail and we will be flying a low performance glider. If we make most of our landings completely power-off from the time we are abeam the runway numbers until we are safely on the ground and rolling to a stop, we will be well practiced for that day which may never come but which is always a possibility.

Katie Dralle is based at KLVK, Livermore Municipal Airport, Livermore, California. (San Francisco area) My husband Matt had a stroke almost two years ago and he has flown since he was 10 years old.

He is back flying but I’m still pushing on to get my license. One day at a time! I... Read More »

Debbie Cheney is based at KRIR, Flabob Airport, Riverside, California. First date in 1980 with my now husband, watching him practice touch and goes in his 65hp Luscombe. Always enthusiastic about aviation, but too frightened to tackle lessons of my own. That all changed in 2007 with our purchase of a Cessna 180! I received my private pilot certificate in 2009 in a J3 cub. I’ve since purchased a beautiful Cessna 140 as training wheels for the 180, but now am able to fly both. Ratings: Private pilot, high performance, complex, taildragger Aircraf... Read More »
