I've never been a big fan of touch-and-goes; and since my home runway is only 2,700 feet long -- with a displaced threshold, to boot -- it's really a moot point. For those who train or do their recurrent work on long runways, I suppose I see value in saving the time it would take to taxi back to the full length. But even in a Cessna 150 on a 7,000-foot runway, I always felt I was cheating myself out of all the valuable "runway behind me," as I rolled along. And over time, I've grown accustomed to the mental prep work I automatically run through while taxiing toward the departure end. On a touch-and-go, I invariably fear I might be missing something.
