You can't fly with flaps down.
Nope. No way. No how. No. Go.
And it's not a good thing to stress the aircraft. Seems to make it cranky. So in other words, don't get cocky and see if you can flip a Cessna completely over in a loop.
But on a brighter note, I've made two landings so far. As of tonight. Just not on any runways. It appears that I prefer farmers' fields. Must be the prairie girl in me.
I think I will wait awhile before I take on the Fighter Ace II program though.
