I would hope you are benefiting from this discussion. Bar flying and forum flying have a lot to offer for anyone. It just ain't the same as the real thing and happy to say there ain't too many out there giving first hand reports. I've talked to some who have had the drama and even from one guy who did the "tail first" even though he didn't plan it or even think it - it just happened - and he walked away with a cut on his nose. But every one is different and - heaven forbid - the time comes you had better have your wits about you and don't use all the knowledge posted here as a crutch. Guideline? Yes! Food for thought? Absolutely! Just remember that if it does happen - you will be doing the flying and none of us will be there to give advice.

 

Listen - ask -THINK!!!

 

.... and have a great summer and many more to come!

 

PS. If you thought I wasn't benefiting from this conversation what did you think I meant by even participating?

 

Well put, Jim.

 

And I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply you weren't benefiting, more-so I was referring to the tone of your reply which seemed to infer that this thread was a waste of time, which I don't feel it is. But you've clarified your stance, and I think I have too and it would seem we're in agreement so let's hug it out! :P

 

I haven't spoken in person to someone who's ever put it in the trees, but I've spoken to a pilot who wound up in the water (though, like your pal, he didn't have much choice). His account doesn't sound like something I'd ever want to experience though!

I would pick the place - in the split seconds that I have to assess - that I think would give me the best chance of survival. This thread has dragged on for days - seesawing back and forth with no def

No worries Phil, all good.   I prefer to read the "How to keep er flyin' " book myself lol.

Say you're cruising along a lake shore in the summer and the stove quits. Would you rather auto into the trees or into the water?
