I remember my first attempt at a short field takeoff and landing. The takeoff was the somewhat easy part after all it was just simulated and there was no real obstacle so the pressure was off. On the landing things were interesting. I though to myself “how hard could it be to land on a certain spot?” More specifically 0 feet before and 200 feet after (Private Pilot Standards). This however proved to be quite the challenge. Fast forward over a decade and thousands of hours I’m now sharing with you some of my best short field takeoff and landing techniques.
