This reminds me of the time I did a checkout in a 182 for a new Rental outfit I was considering using shortly after getting my ticket. Their checkout pilot wasn't in instructor but was a Commercial pilot who had been flying PC-12s. So we go out flying and he has me landing at this tiny runway in the middle of nowhere and I'm long on the landing and initiate a go around. He offers to run through it for me. He mentions to remember to keep some power in for the 182 which I remembered from my training and my HP endorsement. 2 minutes later as he is approaching the touchdown point he pulls power. I just say "POWER POWER" and then we slam onto the runway. Thankfully no damage (at least not visible). He sheepishly looks at me and goes "I forgot this wasn't the Pilatus". He signed off on my checkout. And it took less than 2.3 hours. There I tied it back into the OP's original question.
