All this talk about _what_ you are flying and how to land it. I'm surprised you missed the point cat, but, for most it doesn't surprise me. It's NOT about WHAT you are flying, it's about WHERE you are landing. Take the exact same airplane into 5 different situations, and you'll get 5 different techn...

Three point- because it carries the least amount of energy. Three pointer will transfer a good chunk of that energy to a flimsy little wheel assembly at the back of the plane. Wheel landing puts all the energy thru the mains during deceleration. If you are working the airplane in rough terrain, and...
