Props are bigger than you think

I always imagined propellers as "flimsy" and worthy of delicate handling until I had the opportunity to see one NOT attached to the front of the aircraft. I'm talking about a C172 propeller -...

Tomboo,

You should not normally need to put drift lines on a leg of less than 15 nm. As a simple practical matter, on a leg of less than 15 miles you should pretty much be able to see your next...
