Charlie,

Nice job on the PT workout. Sorry you ended up feeling poorly later on.

Man, your Runway 12 sounds a bit like CEC's 29....though you are right, we didn't have to deal with a .7% grade. Lots of mechanical turbulence due to foliage along 11/29, especially at the approach end of 29. Wind generally liked to split 29-35 (the other runway being 17/35) and on most days where you had any visibility, you were dealing with winds of between 10 and 20 knots with higher gusts. You had to land long - - about 1/2 way down 29 (5500 feet). Years ago, with the old T-crafts or "Air Knockers" guys would have to come out of the FBO, take hold of the wings, and help walk the planes off the active.......
