Thankyou for the video and very good advice.
I occasionally do an entire hour long flight with full flaps and at very slow speed. You learn some things about your plane, and your flying skills.
When I was doing my flight training "slow flight" was something you did for about 10 minutes and then moved on to the next exercise. You don't learn much about slow flight like that.
I don’t know… to me he is intertwining slow flight with short field landings. Personally I don’t see the need to have the stall horn blaring three miles from touchdown.
Full flaps and 55 mph over the trees, then retard power, pitch for airspeed, and my C170 will make an absolutely beautiful short field landing. I don’t get any horn until ground effect, but then again I don’t test the limits in hairy jungle strips like OP.
Slow flight and stalls were part of my my first flight with an instructor. Power on stalls was flight 2. Fun stuff, seriously.
Thanks to the OP for dropping another video for promotional purposes.
I get my slow flight practice at the top of an Immelman.
“Slow flight” is really anything below normal cruise speed. At one point in history “MCA” (minimum controllable airspeed) was the norm for testing.
It appears as the OP is advocating MCA from several miles out, as demonstrated by the stall horn. At low level, that far from touchdown, IMO this is not only unnecessary, but unsafe.
I don't come in super slow. I am usually 5-10mph over and once i hit the fence at about 100ft then i pull power, pitch up a few deg and bleed off until about 75 in a Pa-28-180.
I just dont see the point of stalling to land. I want to have as much control as possible.... unless its a short field.. then fly the numbers as close as possible.
Not a popular opinion
I agree with you in this. Yes practicing the FAA version(s) of slow flight is important (whether at stall warning or just above). But I think "a warning blaring for a long time is normal and can be safely ignored," the subliminal message here, can lead to all sorts of other problems.
Yep. Another vid with no description other than a title. From the comments, sounds like another one with questionable advice, too. 0/10 won't click.
Posting videos without descriptions... kind of like this --
Ya'll need to watch this amazing video!! --
Thanks for the videos i always enjoy watching and love the 170.
Using the oft recommended 1.2 Vso for a short field, one can easily arrive at touchdown at the same speed/attitude by bleeding off the extra 20% during the roundout. Here we’re talking maybe 8 knots? Don’t really see the advantage to dragging it in just over the stall.
Makes for more heroic videos.
That means all of my 150 time counts as slow flight.
I didn't watch the video. I was turned off by these videos a year or so ago. Just seems like video after video is just for the Youtube income.
Dragging it in is one thing, dragging it in while the stall horn is blaring is another. Better hope the engine never hiccups. Probably works great, until it doesn't.
