    Default I'm trying very hard to like this skylane, but!!!!!

    I try the ILS approach into Savannah, GA, and on final, I'm still at 1000' AGL above and at the threshold! I will get it eventually! The smaller birds are harder when it comes to details, than the larger, faster aircraft that I like to fly! Oh well, it's pretty to look at!

    It's so true! the weather has a major influence on smaller and slower birds. Good luck Rick!

    Just stick with it Rick and you will master it more quickly than you might think.

    Thanks David, Jan and Larry!

    Got it Larry! Just tried one more, different airport, tweaked the gs proportional back to 9.00, and it went fine. It really comes down to one stepping down from the heavier, more stable aircraft, then trying the same with a much lighter, more susceptible to exterior challenges, wind etc., especially when you haven't flown one in awhile. I think I could do a better job with a J3 Cub, rather that the Skylane! Anyway, not a great landing, but it worked for me! At least the Skylane seemed happy with the Glide Scope and cooperated this time around!

    Thanks again! Rick

    You should try an ultralight like our Challenger. If you fart on final you gain 500'. -- Bob

    Thanks Bob, Kirk and John! I'll get it one way or the other! I still have my original PPL (53 years), and they haven't taken it from me yet, so, I doubt they will want me to go back for training to get another one! AND, I'm not going to go back and get another! THERE!

    This nice looking 182 Skylane will just have to cooperate with me and we'll become best of friends!

    Rick
