Takeoff and Landing Performance (Actual vs. POH)

Reality Check

In this episode of Reality Check, we set out to see how well the POH numbers (and now ForeFlight numbers) on takeoff and landing performance measure up to actual performance experienced in the aircraft. We have ASI Executive Director, Richard McSpadden, in a Cessna 182 and Dave Hirschman, AOPA Editor-at-Large, in an '89 Bonanza.
