    @teiladay its because of trains and cars. they dont want anyone flyting to low at night and running into a train or something. its mainly there for some of the bigger jets we get from time to time

    Naw, they are actually really nice.

    the 1st landing was a bit rough

    there was a crosswind from the left. notice that the airplane’s flight path is straight while the nose is pointing left on takeoff. in that case, it is appropriate to land on the left wheel as you said.

    When you filmed this were the guys in the tower being assholes? When I was training at West Houston Airport we did touch and go’s at KSGR and they always seemed like they were in a pissy mood.

    Great vid. Sadly, this plane just met it’s demise in Colorado. The pilot took off from Steamboat Springs and crashed into a mountain, killing himself and his family, may they all RIP.

    sure it does, with the train tracks being at almost the end of the runway, if there was a train legally the touchdown point has to be “x” number of feet from the obsticle (train)

    that long displaced threshold doesn’t have anything to do with “trains” that’s for sure. You have 50ft trees and other obstacles at many airports that don’t have nearly the same loong displaced threshold. I’m guessing the reason is due to a concrete/engineering/upkeep issue(s).

    ya have a habbit of landing on the left wheel, try to land on both. Your also over controlling abit, unless thats crosswind pushing you.

    sweet just had my discovery flght there earlier today, i liked it so i will be going back 🙂 Scott was my instructor.

    That is a big ass displaced threshold.

  14. cjthse on October 5th, 2010 3:02 am

    keep those wings level! too much control movement 🙂

    Interesting! Which part of CA? I flew with Don and I myself just moved to CA. Checkout my other videos from John Wayne.

    o cool video, i used to fly out of anson air until i moved out to california a few months ago. Who is your instructor?

  17. cosmodreamer on October 5th, 2010 3:30 am

    Because the trains run by from time to time…

  18. 1776vtgmb on October 5th, 2010 4:10 am

    Why the displaced threshold?

Got something to say?
