For the typical light single-engine airplane, 2,000 feet actually isn’t that short. Still, for pilots who never fly into short runways, landing in that amount of room can seem daunting. If your short-field skills are rusty, find an instructor who is an expert at getting in and out of tight spaces and head for the shortest runways you can find. In no time, 2,000 feet will seem plenty long. The added benefit is that you’ll get to visit lots of great little airports that you might not have realized even existed.
