In response to comments requested on the 206 information.

A few comments. Instead of holding power on landing I like to think of it as holding RPM's. All of my 206 time came from flying a jump plane so I was always within glide of the airport (except on the up wind). I was told never to go to idle unless I had the airport made. Also - according to my friend who crashed a 206 - never turn the aux pump on to change tanks. Its not a f-ing Piper. The aux pump is for starting and restarting if you run a tank dry.
OK - one more thing. When empty and I mean nothing but the pilot and the pads for the sky divers and ten gallons of fuel - never land with full flaps - max 15 degrees.

I would imagine that the delta pilots have their own tricks.
