    Ditto, that is what I envisioned when I was 20 years old, 50 years ago. Thanks, I can still dream.

    Well one can always say that. Its a dangerous sport. More so on the deck. Its also a fun sport. More so on the deck. Nice flying!

    (I’m not putting myself in the same category mind you. I’ve never done a roller on the deck...but I’d like too)

    Nicely done. I think actually that you cant really learn to roll perfectly at altitude because you cant see a few feet change in altitude. Below a few hundred feet you can get very good at perfect rudder /elevator use. Of course its something you work down to over hundreds or thousands of hours.

    But a good ground coach can see more deviation from 1500' than you can see from inside the cockpit at 200'. If you're playing around 100' or less, you're just confirming what you already know.

    Perhaps but you dont get the instant feedback. You feel and can see immediatly any small change and can correct and see if the correction is perfect. I certainly dont advocate doing it though because its damn dangerous.
