A new contest EVERY month; shared prizes from all our sponsors totalling over $2000!

I am SUPER stoked to add a prize from my aviation hero Bob Hoover: “Flying the Feathered Edge” SIGNED collectible prize pack!

This is an amazing example of how calculation theory and real life application don’t always line up.
Watch as a G36 Bonanza with a Tornado Alley Turbo performs a short field take off in a mountainous area, and just barley makes it out alive.
The pilot Chris, learned a ton from this experience and shares an amazingly detailed analysis at the links below.
Please visit them to share the lessons from his experience.
Chris Palmer shared this footage with me to analyze
– he is an amazing pilot from “Angle of Attack”.
LINKS you must visit for great post flight analysis:
one to Chris’ “Aviatorcast”, and one to Chris’ awesome article
(with massive comment thread)
NOTE: please avoid “Monday morning quarter backing” Chris had to deal with enough of that back when this was first put out there.
* AMENDMENT * to voice over:
I am sorry about any confusion I may have caused regarding roles density altitude and runway length played here – maybe I should have dug deeper to get some actual numbers; but Chris, the original pilot, did not have his actual performance calculations available, so I decided based on that lack of some of the specific details, to simply avoid including any of them, and I went for a more general “start the conversation” type theme, regarding personal minimums. Essentially, I made a video motivated by the visceral reaction I had to seeing the footage and wanted to share.
Huge thanks to all the Supporters on Patreon!
