    My takeaway is that a Mooney can go where a Cessna 180 cannot.

    ...every approach to landing is a Go Around until proven otherwise.

    What you really want is a Bonanza.





    Oh, we aren’t doing that here?
    OK..


    But seriously sexy landing by that Mooney. Think he said to the person in the right seat, “Here, hold my balls. They’re massive!”

    What you want is to cut the tree down.

    I was taught by a very old CFI, and he always says that a go-around is a positive maneuver.

    Ah slips. Let’s throw in some AOA. @motoadve , what about your’s. Does it read accurate in a foot to the floor slip. Left, Right? Do you adjust a little?

    @piperpainter ?

    Nice mooney, I've always wanted one but the prop clearance always worried me on gravel.

    Even the squirrelly guy in the 180 chose a safer option than trying to get stopped without enough remaining distance. Not well executed with the nose rise, but the go around decision was solid.

    Yes the AoA indicator shows when in a slip.
