|Flying over Lake Ontario. In my flight from Andrews AFB (MD) to Niagara Falls International Airport (NY), I strayed a bit too far north, almost reaching Canada.|
But I can feel the negative torque by seeing how the aircraft yaws leading to a drop in one of the wings. Nasty stuff. Adjusting the propeller pitch solved my issue and I had a pleasant flight over PA and NY states. Finally I could take my hands off the joke and throttle and fly straight and level with my C-130 trimmed for 293 KIAS (no autopilot!).
This helped me a lot for landing, yet I still have an awful tendency to execute shallow and fast (130 KIAS) approaches. I think I need a bit more landing practice before going tactical. :)
