    Yep exactly! I tell my students all the time that I can only describe and show them what they’re supposed to see up until a point. They have to be able to see what the airplane is doing and feel it.

    To an extent; stick and throttle work together, it all depends on their combined effects. It’s more of an art than a science, developed largely by feel. You’ve nailed it that stick regulates speed and throttle controls altitude, even though you only implied it.

    Gorgeous. I love the whine of the old style stall warning! 🙂

    Actually, if you …
    Actually, if you were flying with your nose on the horizon and reduced power, the aircraft would naturally want to descend, right? Well, if you kept the nose on the same place on the horizon you will eventually descend with a certain power setting. The relative wind would be coming from a different direction now with a different AOA. That’s the only good example I can think of.

    Beautiful landing, …
    Beautiful landing, perfect picture. Very nice long hold off too.. I’m with EclipsePieLet, Cowboy – speed is controlled by attitude, power determines whether or not you’ll make the runway.. 101! Well, it’s definitely not the FIRST lesson you’d learn on how to fly a plane mind you..

    Fantastic landing, good job..

    This landing was perfect. Good job:)

    And cowboy you obvisouly know crap about landing a plane. I’d like to see you pitch up to gain altitude on a go around with power on idle. I wonder what would happen. BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

    Watch this video …
    Watch this video again. He had the nose perfectly aimed, lined up well, he floated until stall and set it down right on the bars. This is an immaculate landing. And BTW, AoA and pitch attitude go hand-in-hand. You cannot change the AoA without changing your pitch. Unless you installed a pivoting spar on your Cessna. And you need an STC for that. Think about it.

    Bullshit. EVERY …
    Bullshit. EVERY instructor, from “Vietnam Willy” to John and Martha King will tell you power is for altitude and pitch is for speed. Tell you what: I’ll strap you into a Cessna 206 and let you prove your theory. It’s a small price for me to pay, watching you die and sparing us your lack of intelligence.

    JMScheib, R U a pilot. Power is for speed. Pitch is for altitude. Basic flight 101. You can get away with it flying non complexed aircraft but don’t get into this bad habit, pitching the aircraft for speed.

    Don’t confuse angle …
    Don’t confuse angle of attack with pitch attitude. Angle of attack is the angle between the relative wind and the chord line and pitch attitude is how high the nose is up or down. You pitch the aircraft for airspeed.

    your AOA was too steep on approach and you floated the landing

    thats interesting …
    thats interesting what you said about trimming the plane and holding it there till touchdown. i did not know you could do that in a small plane like a 172. i gotta check that out it sounds useful

    Ah gotcha. I know some pilots mount their cams. I’m wondering how….oh well. Thanks!

    Nice landing man! Hey how do you mount a cam on the dash? I want to record my flights! 🙂

    Chipper182 off base on his comment. Stall horn as you said went off before touchdown, it’s clear in the video. Flare from camera angle, is very hard to detect as I experience on my videos. See my landing Madison MS KMBO and other then my stall horn sounding longer then in yours, same effect, just slide it on the runway 🙂 Nice job!

Got something to say?
