So, listen, I like to tell airplane stories and I want you to stay around to read them. If you fly single-engine airplanes do this for me. Go way, way back to basics and find out where the damn thing will land if the engine quits. Doesn't matter if you're flying a Bonanza, an RV, a TBM, a Pilatus, a Cub or a Caravan. Practice until you can put your airplane on the first third of the runway, or better, on or beyond a predetermined spot without power. A 180-degree, power-off approach. I know, I know, it's not required on the flight test, it involves dangerous low altitude maneuvering, shock cools the engine, it's not real-world flying, the sink rate is excessive, plus it raises your cholesterol and causes warts. Practice it anyway. Make a sport of it, like an old-fashioned spot landing contest. It's part of the art of flying an airplane and it can save your butt like it did mine.
