Flying left seat again, even though I flew my entire BFR from the right; we're working on that :-) A pretty uneventful flight, which of course has many nice points.
I forgot carb heat a couple of times :-( but otherwise felt good about being ahead of the plane and in good control; takeoffs were on time, turns were smooth, climbing was steady, I was slowed down by the numbers, and I hit or almost hit my runway line on the turn to final every time. All that's left is needing polish through practice, but we knew that :-|
We fairly leapt into the air on my short-field takeoff; I need to drag out Google Earth and see just how long the wheels were rolling, and I can already say we were some 180 AGL by the end of the 5000ft strip, but it would be fun to finally land at Mathis. My short landing was fairly good, too, but I ended up having to add power to make my target point (the 1kft blocks, not the numbers or threshold :-) and thus actually needed brakes. Ah, well...
