Do you consider yourself capable to land the Spirit Of St.Louis ?
In its present disposition, sure. It’s hanging from the ceiling at the Smithsonian. Put me inside and clip the wire and I’ll stick the landing.
I might be able to taxi it 100' before going into a ditch, but that assumes a big ramp.
For me,, It's just a matter if you would like to use the aircraft again.
Even Lindbergh was heard to say the Spirit had lousy handling. I have enough trouble keeping my docile little 172 shiny-side-up, so I'd not be inclined to take on much more of a challenge.
I have landed a C-207 maybe once or twice with the wind screen iced over, so probably.
Only if 6pc is there to talk me down.
Yep I could do it no problem!
I'd probably try it - after a bit of practice in something else.
