As far as the LOP versus ROP debate: Go online, and you will find two distinct camps, each defending one method. Routinely, people are shamed on both sides for believing in the other. Even asking the question can bring a world of pain down on you in an internet forum. On “Beechtalk,” a forum that deals mostly with Bonanzas and Barons but covers many other facets of aviation, a question that begins with someone doubting the merits of LOP operations is dealt with swiftly. I usually find it funny, but a newcomer to such a forum can quickly be swayed—and not always for the right reasons. It’s convenient when arguing to avoid nuance and exceptions. Much simpler to draw a line in the sand. This is where the problems begin.
