I like to think I am. But after reading so many botched pilot stuff on this forum it’s hard to quantify. My latest was a horrible landing attempt in a 172 with a CFI aboard. Go around was an easy decision. Done several of those in my time. If it’s not looking good you can always go around! Provided all systems are normal. Did a go around in a 182 with my wife on board recently. The second attempt was butter. But the first was trash and wasn’t worth fixing. First time ever I felt I needed to abandon a landing with her on board. We were just feet off the runway but the plane just wouldn’t settle. I explained to her as we flew the pattern what happened and why it was better to just try again. And the second attempt didn’t even feel the mains hit the pavement. That’s rare for me. Had several takeoffs that were questionable in my short time. One was aborted due to a bug in the pitot tube killing the airspeed on a short-ish runway with my daughter on board. The other two were low performance high altitude departures where the plane didn’t want to climb. Thankfully I had prepared for that and it was a non-scenario. A third in Colorado with a CFI on a specific mountain flying lesson we did not run-up the engine to find best mixture after landing and prior to departing a short field high altitude airport. That blame goes to both of us. There was an altitude difference between our departure airport and landing airport. It deserved a separate runup. You low altitude pilots please make sure you know your leaning procedures when visiting the mountains. Had a vmc flight turn into potential imc in a hurry. I knew we had an airport that we passed just on our six so descended in a 180 return and made a safe landing. Was stuck there for about five hours while the storm cleared. Had one downdraft and one updraft event. Neither one had any control on when I could retain level altitude. Ever been a passenger in a 160 Hp 172 up to 15k+ in an uncontrolled ascent? Yeah not fun. What makes us a safe pilots? I like to think I’m a safe pilot. But that could change in a minute when something goes sideways. Flying is unforgivable when things go wrong. And we all make mistakes. I like this forum because we can always learn from each other. And most of you are like-minded and kind. Stay safe out there.
