He's also had "a few lessons in Hughes 300 and R22 helicopters". Which he found not practical for long distance flying, cargo and passengers.
Most difficult landing: Engine out over Ft Lauderdale in a single engine Mooney 201 landing on-airport after declaring an emergency.
Second most difficult landing was racing ahead of a sudden sand storm rolling in from north Tucson which hit the aircraft only 10 feet off the runway surface.
The abrupt wind sheer caused me to go-around in diminishing visibility to re-approach for landing on an alternative runway.
Third most difficult landing was in a Beechcraft Duke B60 on a cross country back to New Mexico in severe weather. Storms rose up so quickly from so many different directions that two alternative fuel stops were both below minimums for landing and we were compressed in dangerous conditions in the middle.
Icing in a severe thunderstorm, low on fuel, we had to stretch the distance with a headwind from Alabama to Las Cruces New Mexico. We virtually exhausted our reserves and landed with less than 15 minutes of fuel in the tanks.
" Flying is like life. Both require proper perspective and planning. Flying requires faith, focus, consistency, skill, awareness of ones surroundings, a positive attitude and courage during setbacks. It’s also good to remember in life and flight that although sometimes the day appears gloomy, from the higher perspective, the sun is always shining and there’s always a clear path to the destination. It’s all about altitude, attitude and the route you choose to take." Anthony Dohrmann
