Now there's an idea. I will try that the next flight. I was just really uncomfortable with the "airport environment in site - runway obscured" straight in approach. We land on farm strips and it is ...

I've got 4000 hours TT, 600 conventional gear but only about 40 in the Duster. I want to hear others 2 cents worth on pattern speeds. Let's have some input and see if there is some consensus on this ...
