likely my last flight of winter, and my first flight at Lookout this year.


Got about 37 minutes. If I had not dicked around and had just put her in on top when i had the chance i could have had another good flight later.

Oh well.

Looked like a weird spot to land.

all that open space, and our LZ is the one thats sloping, small, and with obstacles, often cross to full tail (yesterday was quartering)

Nice going Jason. That approach and LZ look challenging. Lots of room for error. Those of us that fly at AJX sure have it nice.

The LZ used to be bigger, but they are building a detention pond in it. So we are loosing space.

There is another area that we can land in directly adjacent to it, friday it would have been doable, but i opted for the shorter walk out, and the more cross landing. you can see the nose yaw left shortly before my flare

back when the LZ was bigger

Obstacles, density altitude, etc. Lots of things factor into that approach and landing. Again, well done👍
