One way strips [new Backcountry 182 vid]

Recommended Posts

He seems to land almost on all three wheels, much faster than a full stall. And therefore not protect his nose wheel at all. (Disclaimer: I have 40 hrs total time.)

The stall warning is chirping on his approach and touch downs. 182's don't have enough elevator authority to get the nose any higher with full flap. The fire wall on these can be bent by average pilots.

Can't argue with you Thruster regarding 182 elevator authority BUT I think there was only one view of the aircraft on the landing role - elevator neutral or close to it, there did not seem to be any attempt to even reduce load on nose wheel. Bit hard to say from cockpit views but again little back yoke on landings. There is no doubt to his skill but like many GA pilots he seems to use mainly power to control his approach (this also the way I was taught but its really for a nice made strip environment).
